Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Hello I have a Kelvinator washing machine model #KWS839AS1 the problem I'm getting is that when I turn on the machine to the required cycle it isn't coming on but when I put it on the spin cycle it works. Can you tell me if the timer is the problem I was told that sometimes the contacts in the timer burn out from time to time. I would really appreciated it thank you in advance.

Servicing the Timer
Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

In the next section, we will examine two of the most crucial elements of a washing machine -- the water inlet valves and the agitator.

I am including a link to the kelvinator support center. It seems that KL600FL may not be the complete model number because the site does not answer anything for that number. . Open the lid or door and look around the frame for a model number label.
