Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
My washer a Kenmore 90 series, purchased in 1999, will fill with water and agitate, but then as the cycle approaches the point where it should drain and spin, it will overheat and stop. It will smell like burning rubber, and I can still hear the motor humming, but it's like it's "stuck" or something. It will start again hours later and then the same thing happens on the rinse cycle. Overall, it takes several hours to complete a load of laundry. Sears recently replaced the motor back in March, and that didn't fix the problem, although they claim that the motor they removed was "burned out" Anyway, after 2 months of it shutting down intermittently, it began to happen more frequently, and Sears came back out and refunded me for the motor replacement. So, the washer has a new motor, but still is shutting down. The model number is 110.2691269. I am wondering if it can be repaired, or should I just get a new washer.
It sounds like you have a bad timer. Your timer is basically a wheel that turn and opens and closes sets of contacts. Once these contacts go bad, they stick together. Your machine will basicall try to do a few things at once and over heat (hence the reason it works after it cools back down). A replacement timer should be availible from both your local appliance parts supplier and from the manufactures web site.
