SOURCE: Recently replaced the electrical control

The dial knob itself has slipped on the shaft. You need to remove knob from timer switch shaft and realign it. to current running cycle.

SOURCE: Our Kenmore Top Load Washer series 800 is not

We bought our Series 800 Washer (and dryer) in 08/2009. My wife has never been happy with them. It is off warranty now 10/5/2010. We have always had Kenmore... but she hates this set.
We are having the exact same problem with this washer. The current problem is on the regular cycle when it gets to the spin segment it does spin and all the water is removed HOWEVER just before it shut off it fills with rinse water.
I'll bet any money they are made in China. Looking for a solution on the web. Sears is no help.

ears on it. To keep the knob on there a small rod is shoved up into the hollow shaft. The rod spreads the tip and retains the knob. To remove the knob pull out the rod a half inch and the knob and skirt is easily removed.

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.
