My Kenmore 11020022012 washer stops prior to spinning cycle. If I manually turn the dial to spin, it will spin fine. Need help troubleshooting..


timer needs new electric motor to advance from rinse to spin cycle.
or alternately ,you can have your old timer taken out of your washer and sent out to be rebuilt or buy a new timer.
in any case , you will need a kenmore washing machine repairman to take out your old timer and send it away to be rebuilt and expect that to take 2 or 3 weeks
the timer rebuild used to cost$ 50.00 in 1993 and a new timer went for $110.00 to $129.00
for a sevice man to take out and reinstall a timer $60.00 to 100.00 labor
try to google.com or bing.com or ask.com-----and type in : kenmore washing machine,rebuilt timer. you will need the model number of the washer as well as the model number of the timer and the timer may have a different name that kenmore
also try typing in kenmore washer,new replacement timer
try call sears and see how much their service man wants to put in a new timer. I am sure prices have gone up since 1993
when I retired from the major appliance repair busness. i could do the timer remove & install, but I probably live 1000 miles from you.
another option: knowing that you will need to spend around $200.00 or more by the time you get a new timer installed
you might want to see how much lowes or home depot wants for their cheapest bottom of the line washer. that might be a good alternative as it allows you to get a new washer and buy an extended warantee so you dont get stuck with another 200.00 repair. I think they have washers starting at 289.95 only 90.00 morte that repairing your old washer which is going to run for how many more years before it again gives you trouble?
check out lowest prices on bottom of the line washers unelse you want to spend a lot on a fancy washer to make yourself happy.
you can shop on line by just google.com or bing.com and the name of the store. home depot, lowes, sears,walmart
and type in clothes washers.

I have an ariston awd 121 front loader washer dryer. What kind of soap does it call for? Can it be the powder? Does it have to be liquid? Does it have to be a certain brand/type?


To my knowledge all front loading washers require low sudsing high efficiency (he) detergent and these only come in liquid. A powdered detergent could probably be used, but I'd try a 1/4 of the recommended amount for a normal load first. Also it is not recommended. Regular liquid detergent can also probably be used but i'd start with 1/2 the the amount for a normal load. If you don't use the recommended "he detergents" expect occasional oversudsing problems and possibly even early drain pump death. Hope this helps.
Here is the owner's manual for your machine:

What is the price for drain pump washer for a danby washer


It all depends on if your talking about danby's dishwasher or a washing machine by Danby.

there are also two different types of washers metal and rubber. these are different from gaskets which go between two parts.

As for the rubber washer danby has a list of authorized retailers and service depots that sell their products. These retailers will list replacement parts specific to your type of washer rubber gaskets are typically 50 cents up to fifteen dollars but the rubber washers i found on www.apwagner.com was around 2.50 cents depending on the model.
Also if your looking for gaskets the same list applies to replacement parts but they are more specific and are pricer costing upwards of 10 to fifteen dollars or more.

Where can i buy a lid switch for the Bendix Bambina model TL 843 XT


Hi,

I would suggest typing into your search engine 'bendix washer spares'. I would expect you to be presented by sources from where you could purchase on line, if there is no-where near you.

Good luck,

Is there an adjustment for water pressure


I would expect a residential washing machine to operate just fine between 30 and 70 PSI.

I would expect a well fed (no pun intended here) system to operate up to 40 PSI and most city water connections up to 50 PSI.

You might want to check with the manufacturer to see if there are any special reequirements.

I would expect higher pressure water to fill the washer quicker and allow you to finish sooner.

Many manufacturers recommend securing the water supply to the machine when you are not using it.

What is the nature of your trouble that you think you need to reduct the pressure?

Clothes washer won't drain - digital display shows LD


looking at the tech sheet for this, it appears to be a standard whirlpool top load but with electronic controls, correct? normalling with this type a lid switch is the issue but the electronics would have a different code for this, LD is Long Drain for this model. suspect a transmission but this should help you troubleshoot. go to www.servicematters.com and click technical reference - tech library - tech sheets, enter model minus 110.prefix. this will show tech sheet with diagnostics. this book can also be found inside your console.

Whirlpool wfw8300sw duet sport washer


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question))))

Mad dog kit? Bird dog kit? Some kinda dog or somthin'?


Your model number will be located somewhere around your tub opening under the lid. The parts you are looking for are called "agitator dogs" (yes, there is such a thing). There are four of them located under the agitator cap that help grip the agitator shaft when turning. This causes the agitator to crank in one direction during the wash cycle. The part number for the entire repair kit is 2744 and costs $16.80. This includes all the washers and bushings as well as the dogs. If you just want to purchase the dogs, the part number is 3109 and costs $5.20. For a little more, the entire kit would be a better recommendation. You can get everything you need at repairclinic.com. If you cannot locate your model number, type in the brand name of your washer (i.e., Whirlpool Stylemaster Washer) in the "Search" window and you will find what you need. These parts are the same identical parts that your major appliance service companies use, but cost much less (I should know, I used to work for one of them). Let me know if you decide to repair on your own and I can give you follow-up advice on how to take the agitator apart and replace the parts you need.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
