SOURCE: Will not drain or spin

Unless you jarred the machine it's the timer. You can check this by bypassing the lid switch and seeing if it will cycle.

SOURCE: washer won't spin

The first thing I would check is if your timer is advancing. Set it at th beginning of a wash cycle and let it go. See if the timer knob arrow advances. If it doesn't, your timer is bad.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.

that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:



I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.

    I have a whirlpool awo/d5706/s that I went to restart yesterday and now there's no power.


    WASHER WILL NOT START:

    Power If your washing machine won't start, begin by looking at the power source. First of all, is the washing machine plugged in? If it is, has it tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse? Check and reset the breaker (or replace the fuse) if necessary.

    Lid Switch The main control for the washing machine is the switch inside the lid. If this has stopped working for some reason, your washing machine won't start. It's not especially difficult to troubleshoot this on a washing machine. You might have to open the top to access the switch. With the power on, depress the switch and listen for a click. If you don't hear one, the switch MAY BE BAD and will need to be replaced. Confirm defectiveness with a multi meter checking for continuity OHMS. An open circuit reflects a bad switch..
    If the switch works but the washing machine still won't start, check to see if your washing machine has a special fuse for the lid switch. It will usually be inside the control panel. If it's blown, you'll need to replace it before the washing machine will start.

    Door Interlock The problem could be with the door interlock. If the lights come on but the machine won't start, this might well be the cause. This could either be down to the wiring that runs to the door interlock, or the door catch not activating the interlock itself.

    Timer Knob Some models of washing machine use a mechanical timer knob and won't run until the water in the machine has filled to the selected level. If the knob doesn't line up properly with the graphics on the control panel, you can try to troubleshoot the washing machine problem by advancing the timer a little. When you've done this, pull it out a little way and see if the washing machine will start properly.

    Push start switch may need to be tested with a multi meter for continuity OHMS should show a closed circuit when pushed in or turned on.
    The start switch on some top load washers is often part of the timer and is activated by pulling out on the timer knob. Although not normally available as a separate part, the switch can be tested for continuity with a multi-meter. You will need to remove power from the appliance and then locate the correct timer contacts as noted on the wiring diagram. On some electronic controlled models, the start switch is a momentary contact type switch located on the control console. You can test this switch for continuity with a multi-meter when the push button is held in


    Overheating If you've run several loads, one after another, without any problem but suddenly find your washing machine refuses to start, overheating could be the cause. The simple way to discover whether this is the problem is to give the machine ample time to cool down, say for a couple of hours, and then try it again. If it works fine, overheating has been the problem and you may have a motor with bad windings.
    By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!


    All washing machines use a motor that is responsible for spinning and agitating during the cleaning cycle. Many top load brands use a reversing motor which means the motor spins in one direction for agitating and another for spinning and draining. If the motor does not start, but makes a humming or buzzing noise then it may be defective. To verify if the motor is at fault, remove the drive and /or pump belts and then try to start the motor again. On direct drive models, you will have to disengage the pump and the direct drive coupling to the transmission. If the motor starts, then the problem is with the transmission or the pump and can be further diagnosed by reconnecting each one individually. If the motor does not start or continues to hum or buzz, then it will need to be replaced

    Lastly CONTROL BOARD

    If the control board does not provide the proper voltage to the drive motor, fill valve, drain motor or door lock then the washer may not start. The main control board on most washers is complicated and difficult to diagnose without proper test equipment and procedures. You can visually inspect the control for signs of electrical arcing or burned or damaged components on the board. You should use caution when replacing a control board as sometimes the burned components are caused by external component failures.

    Power Cord

    If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.

    We need to replace the timer, how do yoy get the main wash cycle knob off the machine


    First, see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer:

    http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=5cac791c099cfeceeefa8f469d527d82

    If your washer doesn't have end caps that come off, try slipping a thin putty knife under the edges of the console from the front to release the clips.

    Then see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:

    https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

    You'll have one of two different timers.

    If you have the normal one, hold the shaft that goes thru the timer with a thin needle nosed pliers and unscrew the timer knob.

    Once the knob is off, you only have to disconnect the electrical leads and the bolts holding the timer in.

    Also see the Sears parts site for your washer:

    Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    Removeing timer switch knob


    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.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    See the following for how to release the console:

    Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers:

    https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


    If this is a basic top load, direct drive washer, these units may have one of two different timers. (See the Whirlpool PDF).

    On models with a metal timer, you have to release the console, pull it forward and tilt it back in order to get to the back of the timer.

    The knob screws onto a medal shaft that goes through the timer.

    Usually, trying to un-screw the knob won't work by itself since the shaft will also turn.

    I found that if you hold the back of the shaft with a thin needle-nosed pliers, you can unscrew the knob.

    Then you simply have to disconnect the timer.

    The Whirlpool PDF also has troubleshooting and testing procedures for the timer.

    The start/ stop knob of my whirlpool washer LSQ9564JQ0 just spins. I have to deeply press against the larger part of the timer to move the arrow to the wash settings. I will still start and stop though....


    The threads either on the timer knob (part number 3364291) and the timer dial ( Part number 3957849, the larger part of the timer with arrow) are worn. Pull the knob off and inspect the threads. Replace the part with the worn threads.

    Washer does not change cycles on its own


    timer is most likely bad if it will not move on its own at all..
    3951703 - TIMER
    you can access the timer by:
    remove power from the unit.
    remove the philips head screws that should be present in each left and right control panel end cap front.
    slide the control panel bottom forward 1/2 inch and lift up.
    the entire console will swing up on the hinges in the rear of the console top.
    with the console upside down you can see the back of the timer, there is a small brown clip sort of recessed into the back of the timer that is connected to the timer knob/shaft. that clip needs to be pulled out so that the knob can be removed to access the screws on the front to remove the timer assembly.
    around $100 new
    hope this helps,
    best of luck,

    This appears to be a timer / timer motor problem.

    I'd alto look at the Whirlpool / Kenmore direct drive installation and maintenance manual for testing the timer.
