The timer that changes the cycle wont change from wash to rinse to spin i have been doing it manualy by pushing in nob and turing myself


If a mechanical timer is fitted more than likely the timer motor is burnt out. This part is usually not available on it's own & you will need to replace the timer.

Why wont my kenmore elite sm9711034 wont cycle automatically?


This is almost always caused by a bad time. The solution is to replace the timer. What happens is the timer has a small motor on it that turns the timer, if the motor burns out or the timer gears wear the timer doesn't advance like it should.

Wont spin or drain makes ticking noise


Maybe the timer is not running.
Can you turn the timer ahead manually a step at a time? Then if you don't hear the motor running the timer may not be working or sending signals to motor to start. . But If the motor starts a spin cycle then the timer is just not running itself probably dut to not getting power.
All this is difficult without the diagrams. There are so many interlocks and safety switches that you wont know about

HELP!! Washer machine wont work. Doesnt drain or spin. Clicks to drain and spin but nothing happens, the timer still counts down as if everything is fine.


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.

If the machine starts, fills and goes through its' agitate cycle fine, the problem is likely not in the motor or transmission.

This type of washer uses a reversible motor. When turning one way, the machine agitates the clothes.

When the timer gets to the spin cycle, the motor reverses, drives the pump (directly from the motor) for a period of time and then goes into spin cycle.

This appears then that is is either the connection to the motor itself or the timer.

The timer is driven by a separate motor on the control panel so if the contacts for the spin cycle are worn, the timer will move but the motor won't turn on.

I have a Legacy SAV405DEWW machine wont run


I just had the same problem. The washer would stop about 2/3 through the spin cycle and not start again. Replaced the timer. That did NOT solve the problem.

Wont spin


1.The timer control may not be advancing to the spin cycle
2. The most likely problem is a damaged coupling between the motor and the tub. If this is the problem, your clothes are not being washed either. Check to see that the agitator is working when the wash cycle starts.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L does not always spin


This unit has a neutral drain transmission. When it first goes to spin it will drain without spinning to ease load on motor. It will then pause motor and when it restarts it then spins.
You probably have a bad timer that is not pausing the motor. Monitor washer from the start of spin cycle to end to see if it pauses then starts again. If not, replace timer.
