Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Open Question

My front load Kenmore washer (970C4103200) will not agitate or spin. This model has one timer/cycle switch which is a static or friction switch. It will drain when it moves to this cycle or if you move the switch to a drain cycle manually. There are NO ISSUES with load size, lint/coins in trap, kinked hoses,etc. This has occurred in the past and rotating the dial or moving it back to start of wash cycle would correct it. Solutions? New switch?

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

make sure that when you replace your filter that there is no obstruction in the filter thread(small stone), i have had many problems with this,if the drain light keeps comming on then check the waste pipe stand.

SOURCE: Agitator oscillates, does not rotate, as if part

There are a set of "agitating dogs" under the agitator. These are like small fingers with grooves that grab the agitator and agitate the clothes. These can be replaced for about $5. They are usually made of plastic and wear over time or from overloading. Search the internet for agitating dogs and how to replace.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool Cabrio washer has some coins trapped

They are not in your agitator. they are in the pump on the bottom left if you are standing behind the machine. Be VERY careful. That litle pump seems to be the beginnig of many leaking problems.

11 year old Kenmore washer fills then stops.


in the machine under the front control panel will be a module that controls the wash agitation. Have it checked out as they fail . There is no connection between the timer and this unit as it comes in to play when the water reaches a set level. The timer just keeps working through the cycles believing the washer is agitating.

I have a kenmore washer model 110.22994. It fills with water but does not agitate. How do I start to identify the problem? The problem started after a friend loaded the machine with heavy jeans.


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.

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers with a troubleshooting section.

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


The first thing to check is to try the washer on a different cycle.

Then make sure that it will drain and spin.

If it will work on a different cycle, the problem points to the timer.

If it still won't agitate and it WON'T drain or spin the problem points to the Lid Switch

If it will neither agitate, or spin but will drain, the problem points to the Motor Coupler.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer model #110 and won't agitate


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23912100

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


The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.

I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.

Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.

These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.

Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.

I have a kenmore washer model # 110.20722990 will agitate but will not move to the next cycle to drain or spin


If you can manually move the timer to spin and it works replace the timer. If you move to spin and it does not work, replace the lid switch.

Kenmore 417.29042992 front loader washer


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
