Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a 6yr old Kenmore top load washing machine (#8537143A) that filled with water today and then the cycle never went any further. I left the knob pulled out to see if the time would still tick off and the knob isn't moving. I now have a washing machine full of a wet load of laundry. The breakers have not tripped. I plugged into a known working outlet and that didn't do anything. If I move the setting to a larger load it will start adding more water but never continues past that part of the cycle.

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.

    Kenmore Series 90 top loading washing does not fill with water


    Well you eliminated the fill valve when you said it does fill with water. More than likely its a bad connection on the control board. I wouldn't betmy paycheck on it but thats where I'd start. Take the cover off the control board and while machine is on being really careful wiggle each wire until the water starts in the tub and you have found the problem.

    The first thing seems to be the timer,or the water level switch. Try filling the washer with water by hand, if it starts to agitate after being filled its the timer, if not it is the water level switch, let me know if you need further assistance.
