I tried switching to the spin cycle. It worked for about 20-30 sec then shut off. I tried to switch it back on. It doesn't switch back on right away. It is as if it has to cool down. Does this still sound like a timer issue? Also, does the motor go by any other name?

Turn your timer to spin cycle ( doesnt need any water)and turn it on.Now if its starts spinning and than shuts off immediatley turn it back on, if there is nothing happening when you try this >>>Replace your motor.There is a 15% chance that your timer is broken and is sending improper current to the motor.First change motor.If you have been running this on a extension cord or when your community is using alot of electricity it would be the reason your at this problem.Dont run Appliances on super Hot Days ,use them in the evening and your motor will run at a low temperature.

Dryer starts for 10 sec and then stops, has an burn smell it runs great Although when it stops it won't restart until a few mins later. Then the same over again. Its a loud noise when going for 10 sec


It sounds like it's overheating.
Find and clean the filter.
The noise might be something caught between the drum and the mechanism. A bra underwire is common if your female (anonymous)?)
Check with a good torch...
If you rotate the drum and it squeaks it's something jammed or maybe the bearing.

How do you check a fan motor






You need to check the volts at the motor while it's running, to make sure some safety is not shutting it off. Then check the amps on the motor while it's running. Also you need to check your capacitor and wiring.

Fan cutting on and off every 5 mins


The only thing that is going to but the fan off is the thermostat. When the fan stops, immediately check the thermostat on the wall. See is there is power between the B terminal and the GH terminal. If none, then replace the thermostat. If there is, then replace the control board in the AC. That means that the fan relay on the printed circuit board is weak.

sounds like your fuel pump is going out. One thought might be that the fuel filter is causing enough resistance to over heat the pump. I would check the fule pressure to determine a free flow of fuel.

Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer keeps stopping, and a smell of smoke.


More than likely there is something locking up your motor. Either the transmission or the drain pump, both are connected to the motor. The easiest way is to disconnect the components from the motor to determine which one is causing the problem. Most of the time it is from the something being lodged in the pump, a sock, screw, wire, etc. To get to the pump you need to tip the washer back far enough to get underneath the washer.
