Does it hum or click? If it clicks your coupler is out or a hum could be a faulted gearcase.

SOURCE: I need to replace the timer on a series 800 washer

Fix the timer on the washer so that it fills with the correct amount of water, and so there is the correct amount of time for each cycle. Make sure the washer is unplugged and take off the control knobs and the panel that lays over the knobs. The knobs could be either at the front or back of the machine. Check the wires that link the timer to other areas of the washer. If they are slack, push them further into place with pliers.


Change the timer by disconnecting the old one. Make sure the new timer is made for the brand of washer that you own. Unhook the wires to the old timer one at a time and connect each wire to the new timer.

Something in the timer came apart. Timer needs replaced. When in good working order, the timer should ONLY ever be turned clockwise..Reversing this could break it.

If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.

How to remove the timer?


HERE IS A LINK TO YOUTUBE VIDEOS CONCERNING YOUR WASHER..... BUT I DIDNT SEE ANYTHING ABOUT A TIMER. I HAVE REPLACED KENMORE TIMERS....PULL OFF THE KNOB...
REMOVE THE SCREWS THAT HOLD DOWN THE COVER WHERE THE TIMER IS LOCATED.... ONCE YOU HAVE THE COVER OFF..... GET YOUR PHONE OR CAMERA AND TAKE A PICTURE OF WHERE ALL THE DIFFERENT COLORED WIRES ARE LOCATED...SO YOU WONT BE LOST WHEN YOU INSTALL THE NEW TIMER.

My Kenmore washer is not draining or rinsing


Check the lid down safety switch. On the lid there is a small spike that goes through a hole when the lid is down.
Under the hole is a switch that allows the timer to advance and the washer to spin only when the lid is down. Two screws hold the switch in place and the plastic switch will sometimes break and be hanging by the wires.

In other words, it is the timer. That is stopping the advance. You may have to replace the timer.

Kenmore 80 series washer, replaced lid switch already, will fill, wash (agitate) but stops before draining and spinning and will not run. Is the timer the next step for replacement? Model: 110.29852991


First check the continuity of the wires in the lid switch and the switch itself. Make a jumper wire to attach to the lid switch connector on the washer cabinet and set it to spin. If still no spin,replace the timer.

It won't agitate


after it fills do you hear any sound and does it go to spin on its own or do you turn the timer your self it could be a bad pressure switch thats what we are trying to determine
