    It is a Kenmore top loader, sorry but I don't have the model number around the lid opening right now, I am out of town. The washer does not power up at all, it is as if it has no electricity. I can get the model number in a week , sorry about that. I adopted the machine with a house in 2002, so I don't exactly know how old it is, it doesn't look that old and has done well.

    This morning when I pulled the control out to start the washer, all I got was a humming sound. So power is getting to the back of the washer because of the hum I hear, but nothing else happens.

    You're going to have to give me a little more information. Is the heading you used correct? Is this, indeed, a Kenmore top loader? If so, what is the model number (located around the lid or door opening). Does the washer power up at all? Please post back and let me know.

I have this same piece of sh*t machine. Repairman was just here. I've had the machine since 2002. Replaced the transmission in 2004 and now having the symptoms above. Repairman thought it to be the clutch. It's a temp fix so he didn't charge me (Sears repair clutch is $200). He thinks it's the motor going out, but can't be sure. Motor will cost about $300 to fix without labor costs. I've sunk enough money into this stupid thing. Temp fix will get me through another week. Sears has a nice sale...15% off and 0% interest for 1 year. If you let it rest and jiggle the basket, you might be able to squeeze another load or two out of it.

My top loading Kenmore Series 80 top loading washing will not run. When I noticed the motor would not engage agitation, I checked the circuit breaker and found that it had switched off. Turned breaker...


I would use a voltmeter and test the power to the motor. If there is power, then motor is faulty. If motor spins but not agitator then ****** could be bad. If no power to the motor, then a fuse or main circuit capacitor may be bad but testing with a manual and multi-tester meter will be needed to test for the failed componenent

Have Kenmore top loading washer stock #24771 and it won't fill with water. Checked water lines and not clogged. What else could be the problem?


Other than water lines being clear, faucets turned on, and the strainers are clear (strainers are located right were the hoses connect to the washer), you are looking at a load size switch or a water level sensor failure. A tripped GFI may also be the culprit, as can a tripped circuit breaker.

Both are easily accessible, since they are located in the top part of the washer, in the control panel area.

You might try cycling the load selector switch back and forth, "clean the contacts so to speak". If it starts to work then, you will need a load switch assy soon.

Sears can print you out a diagram of your washer for assembly, and parts. If you have the full model #, you can plug it in at searspartsdirect.com

UL stands for an unbalance load where one side the tub is heavier than the other side.

when the code is displayed, it automatically unlocks the lid so you can go in and reposition the clothes to try and balance it. once you are done, simply press the start button again and it should continue again where it left off. if you push the stop button, it will drain the water and assume the cycle is complete.

unplugging it and replugging it in should allow you to do other wash cycles. press power and you should be able to select wash cycles.

if you still have no control, make sure you still have power at the outlet by plugging in a lamp and turning it on. if no power, find the GFI outlet that controls that outlet and reset it. if not on a GFI outlet, then check the circuit breaker panel for a popped breaker. reset it and power should now be restored.

NO POWER


do any of the lights come on when you press the power button? if nothing comes on, then check the GFI outlet and see if it has tripped. quick check would be to unplug the washer from the wall and plug in a lamp. if the lamp doesn't work either, then the outlet doesn't have power.

either the GFI needs to be reset or the circuit breaker at the main panel needs to be reset. one GFI will control a couple of outlets that could be exposed to water (eg, bathrooms, laundry rooms, outdoors, etc). you'll need to find the one and hit the RESET button on the outlet.

if the GFI outlet is reset and still no power to the lamp, then find the circuit breaker panel (usually in a garage, basement or outdoors). open the door and see if one of the breakers has tripped. reset it (or replace if its an old style glass fuse) and see if power is now restored to the outlet cause the lamp now lights up.

if power is there to the outlet, but the washer still will not come on (and either work or display error codes), then one more thing to check is the connection at the machine/motor control unit (connector P13 at the unit). disconnect the washer from the wall outlet. to access P13, you'll have to remove the top console panel (its the one that has all on the buttons on it). its held on with 3 screws on the back that you can get to from the top (no need to move the washer out from the wall). loosen the screws, tip the the panel forward and lift it up. it will be connected to the computer board, so just move it out of the way. P13 will have the large black wires going to it. give it a push to see if its not locked in place. if you hear a "click", then it was not properly connected. you can remove it and reinstall it if you want, but make sure the machine is not plugged into the wall outlet.

put the console back together, plug the washer in and see if it works. if it still doesn't power up, then sounds like the computer board is dead and you'll need a new one. its about $150 from searspartsonline. replacing it is easy, but sears may pay $150 towards labor and $100 towards parts. give them a call.

good luck.

You need a repairperson. It is probably a belt or a switch problem.

No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
