It is the door switch,the pin on the door pushes a swith when you close the door as a safety this is installed so the washer doesnt spin while the door is open,open the door you should see 2 screws which hold it up

My washer is stopping and not spinning with about 12 minutes left on the timer. Is it time to get a new washer or is this problem fixable?


""is this problem fixable?"" Yep just need to know your model number. Is it a FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

It gets through to the 40 minute part of a cycle and shuts off and unlockes door and has ol code


This kind of problem is usually when the final spin is overloaded and the overload sensor stops the spinning. But, this can also happen during the spinning at end of wash cycle. Does this shut-down occur every time? If not, then it is your load that is too much. If it happens every time, then it is most likely the overload sensor. The electronic timer could be the problem (they are more flukey than the mechanical timers) but usually you will not see OL if the timer itself is at fault. Good luck, Macgivor.

WASHER SHUTS OFF BEtween wash cycle and rinse


Sounds like you have a bad timer. Simply purchase the timer. Remove the screws on the backside of the control panel and remove the defective unit. Replace the timer keeping careful attention on the placement of the original wiring. Also, when you have trouble with the unit not running for rinse and spin cycles, it is generally a good idea to replace the lid switch as well.

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.......

Kenmore 94802 - Goes through all cycles.. Doesn't stop after last spin cycle.


I hate to say it, but it sure sounds like a timer problem. There are contacts inside that move and switch items no matter what setting its in. Its a possibilty that the power contact is stuck closed and when you manually turn it off it breaks contact. The job to replace is really not that hard, remove console (unplug unit first), mark your wires, then just replace. The part though is a touch expensive (131789200 Sears Part Number). Probably would be a little cheaper than buying a new unit I guess. Let me know if you need any further information. Jim
