Question about Kenmore 24642 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't fill, no cycling noises

Out of the blue, my washer won't fill. If I advance the cycle knob to another part of the cycle, there is no response or noise at all, even in the spin cycle. This machine is 4 years old and has no warranty. Sears wants to charge me $140 to look at it. Not sure if I should go ahead with that, try to fix it myself, or look for another washer. Can you give me any direction??

Hello, try to see if there's a good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine.If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to). If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.

Thanks

Washer will not cycle


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


    that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:

    Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle

    * It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never
    advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace
    the timer.

    If your washer fills but the timer cycle doesn't advance-replace the timer. If your washer fills the time cycle advance, and still not agitating your agitator is at fault.

    Won,t drain on rinse cycle


    There could be several causes for this, but probably a bad timer. One test for this...when it stops...is to turn it off...and turn the timer slightly clockwise...to the middle of the rinse cycle...and turn it back on. Does it run then?? Try advancing it to the spin cycle after the rinse. If it runs okay after you manually advance the knob...the timer is probably defective.
