Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Our kenmore 80 series (110.27812692) pooped out on us,... the motor and water pump needed replaced, so we bought a used kenmore 70 series (110.82872820) from a friend,... it works fine, but the control knob needs replaced. Can I use the knob from the 80 series?... if so how does it come off?

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer(s):

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter the model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Check the part numbers for both machines in the "Console" section.

Also see the following Whirl[pool Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Whirlpool top load, washers use one of two different timers. Depending on the timer the knob comes off differently.

For most, by holding the back of the timer shaft with a thin needle nosed pliers, the knob unscrews.

Kenmore series 70 squealing and leaking water


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

It sounds as if your pump is bad.

See the following illustrated description of how to access and check / replace the pump.

Look inside the pump. Smething might be in it. If you incorrectly installed the couplings too tight against the tranny or motor then the resulting bind will cause the problem.

Kenmore 80 Series draining problem


Check the following before replacing the timer.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Kenmore washer 80 series misses spin during wash.

Kenmore Washing Machine 70 series


When this machine is not spinning, the water should still be able to drain, as the motor drives the pump on the same shaft as the coupler for the tranny. Set to the spin setting and depress the lid switch, if the water still does not drain, you may have something stuck in your pump, which would also lock the motor shaft and not allow it to spin or agitate. If the water does drain, check the motor coupler, which is located between the motor and transmission, if broken, the motor will run but there is no drive to the transmission. Hope this helps...

Kenmore 80 series not agitating


Most likely you have a bad motor coupler. If you open the console and remove the two brass clips, this will let the front, sides and top all come off as you tilt it forward. At the botom center, you will find two metal clips holding the pump on. Remove. You will find 2 screws holding similar clips holding the motor on. Removed. On the back of the motor, is your coupler. Replace. Then re-assemble.
