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.

    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.

    See the following for how to release the console:

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

    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.

    The control board went bad. Your switch went bad or you blew the fuse. All are located behind the knobs. Just remove the knobs and undue the screws up top. Make sure to unplug the system before opening it up

    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,

    Model 110.27802690 stopped after rinse, still full, won't respond. Checked power source, won't work in any switch position


    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/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.27802690


    I'm assuming from your problem that the washer went through its' first wash cycle, drained and spun, then filled again for the rinse cycle, went through the rinse and didn't go to the drain / spin cycle.

    If that is correct, it appears that the motor, pump and transmission are working. It also appears that the Lid Switch is working. These are the main places to look for a problem such as yours.

    If you stop the washer by pushing the control knob in, moving it to the spin cycle and starting it again, and the washer still doesn't spin, the problem points to a defective timer.

    Before replacing the timer, I'd check the Lid Switch again by removing the two Trim End Caps and the two screws under them. Tilt the console back and disconnect the connector from the console to the lid switch.

    Using a short insulated wire, jumper the Lid Switch at the console by jumping between the two outer pins.

    Following is the Whirlpool Installation and Maintenance manual for these machines with a section on how to jumper the switch.

    Then try to start the machine in the spin mode.

    If it works, the problem is in the Lid Switch.

    If not, It is likely in the timer.

    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.
