Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

On permanent press cycle, washer fills normally, agitates for about a minute, then pumps all the water out and stops. Wash progress indicators never advance. Also at times, washer will stop and beep at 1 second intervals. The 2nd and 7th lights are on when this happens. Tried using the regular setting. It seems to be working OK.

Agitator will not work on wash but works on pre wash and rince.

Hello, welcome to Fixya.

It sounds like you may have a broken belt based on your description,

"it starts up fine and then is silent and motionless through the entire wash cycle. this is true in normal, permanent press, and delicate cycles"

Does the timer advance if left alone after filling ?

Have you access the back panel ( removed it ) and visually inspect the washer drive system ( belt, pulley, motor ) ?

You could also have a faulty motor, although that typically manifest's in only rotating in one direction and not the other so you would see some action.

Have you tried the washer in a spin cycle ?

Let me know how far you've progressed in the diagnosis and I'll watch for your reply and assist you further if necessary.

HI. this is a defective timer mechanism. it must be replaced asap, if possible. the timer is the principal initiator of the units cycles. The motor is defective at this point.

Washing machine begins the wash cycle going immediately to the agitate cycle, without filling up with water first.

water will not stop running into drum unless shut off at faucet does not happen all the time and wife can't find her rubber boots

Agitator not working 90 series model # 11026912691

Hello aksward,
Welcome to Fixya.

Here are some suggestions for any Kenmore washers

Let me know how it goes. I'm still thinking and searching my repair manuals!
Please remember to leave a rating!


Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate

• Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
and pull to start.
Are the water inlet valve screens clogged?
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Is the water inlet hose kinked?

• Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
appear to not fill completely? The top of the agitator is
much higher than the highest water level. This is normal and
necessary for clothes to move freely.
• Has a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker open? If problem
continues, call an electrician.
• Are you using an extension cord? Do not use an extension
• Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle? The washer
pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the
cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of agitation
and soak.
• Is the washer overloaded? Wash smaller loads.
• Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.

You have a timer problem . Thanks for your question hope i helped you solve it . THE APPLIANCE DOC
