Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Kenmore HD Super Capacity washer, fills with water, then nothing, the dial stops, no agitation. reseting the dial did nothing. setting it in different positions did nothing. i need to at least get it to the spin cycle. so i can empty the water and clothes, and buy a new washer. how can i make it do this? i have electrical background so i know it can be done, but i have no schematic to work with...
Let's start a new troubleshooting.
My understanding of the problem is that the machine does not agitate, spin, nor drain. All of the washer functions are disabled except the fill functions. These symptoms clearly indicate a bad lid switch. Otherwise, the problem lies within the drive motor.
The lid switch can be bypassed to verify whether it is indeed faulty or the motor is dead. Pry the top of the console end cap trims off then remove the screws securing the front corners of the console to the top of the cabinet.
Pull forward and up on the console and lay it back washer, fills w/ water then nothing... - 933ec0a.jpges.
Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing washer, fills w/ water then nothing... - eef17fb.jpg located in the middle, and pulling it up.
Bypass the lid switch by connecting a jumper wire between the terminals of the disconnected harness. Replace the lid switch if the machine works. Otherwise, replace the motor.
