Question about Washing Machines

Won't agitate I have a Kenmore 80 series washer for 1998 and it won't agitate. i thought it was the timer box and i replaced it but didn't fix the problem. It fills, but when it needs to agitate it makes a humming noise and the timer box starts to smell bad.

First unplug the washer and turn off the water. If you have a shop vac take the drain hose out of the drain, and through the drain hose vacuum the water out of your washer. If you don't have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps. Then facing the washer locates the two screws. They will either be in the front or rear of the control panel or back them out far as you can. Once you have done that pull the control panel slightly forward, and tilt it back on the hinges. Now unplug the lid switch wire but don't forget to plug it back when you’re done. Next locate at the rear of the washer body the two gold clips then push forward, and take careful note of how they fit. Then pop them out with a screw driver tilt the washer body forward at 45 degree angel and walk forward with the body, and set it down. Now you will see the white pump and motor assembly. You should see two clips holding the pump to the motor pop them off, and pull the pump off the motor shaft. Now if you fell the need to remove the pump use the radiator hose clamp. Take them and clamp the hose coming from the tub but it’s not necessary for the repair. Next disconnect the wiring harness from the motor (note the position of the harness for reassembly). Remove the two 5/16 inch screws from the motor clamps and pop the clamps off. Once that is complete, remove the motor put the new coupling on the motor and transmission shaft. I use a socket and a hammer
follow this but before getting to the motor coulping check to see if some thing is jamming the drain pump

Washer only agitates and fills with water at same time.


The contacts in the timer are shorted (fused together). You can try removing the timer, opening it up and releasing the contacts that are fused together with a small flat blade screwdriver (look for burnt contacts). It might work for a while but it likely won't last. Your best bet is to replace the timer.
Good luck!
