I would try a timer.
Sounds like there is a short in it.

I have this washer and the mode switch (normal/heavy duty agitation switch) went bad, which stopped it mid-cycle. Replaced it and no more problems. Mine only pops a breaker if you have a heavy load in it that's off-balance during the spin cycle. This is a cheap fix, try it!

Why does it work in all cycles except heavy duty?


I think I answered this before. Get an electrician to check the motor windings etc to see if there is a problem under load.

I have kenmore 80 series heavy duty/ super capacity plus washer that after it fills with water,hot or cold and it starts the wash cycle, I noticed that the agitator only moves once in awhile and stops


hum either a bad timer sticking the point contacts close. have u tried this in all cycles? and possibly a motor with bad windings not enough power to run agitation? try running in mild or gentle and see what happens? I was tempted to say the cam dogs in agitator but they dont work then stop then work, when they go out they go out.

The best guess is that you have a bad thermostat. When the compressor shuts off it has to stay off for a long enough period of time for the low pressure high pressure to equalize. If it turns the compressor off and back on immediately it can't start against the heavy load created by these unequal pressures. If it will start every time after sitting for 10 minutes the thermostat is making it short cycle.

Kenmore washer spins on gentle cycle but not on regular cycle


It sounds like you have a busted coupler. It's what connects the motor to the transmission. They will bust, letting the machine work unless it's under a load. It then spreads out and the motor shaft spins inside the coupler.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Dryer


If the dryer is still powered on but the motor stops, it sounds like the over load in the motor is cutting out and the motor will have to be replaced.

Washer problem


THE SPEED SELECTOR SWITCH MAY BE SHORTED CAUSING THE MOTOR TO TRY AND RUN ON BOTH THE LOW AND HIGH SPEED WINDINGS. THIS WILL PULL TOO MUCH CURRENT AND TRIP THE BREAKER.
THE MOTOR WINDINGS FOR THE HIGH SPEED COULD BE SHORTED CAUSING EXCESSIVE CURRENT DRAW.

Kenmore series 80 washer only works right on hevy duty load


CHECK SEE IF MOTOR IS SEIZED BY TIPPING MACHINE FORWARD AND SEE IF YOU CAN TURN THE MOTOR BY HAND. IF MOTOR TURNS FREELY , YOU HAVE A START CAPACITOR PROBLEM.
