    I have the same problem, except that I haven't tried the opposite way. Do you mean that you connect the kenmore to the 220 plug and also to the 110 plug? My case is that only washer works.

Hello, thanks for the reply docjohn. A person from the condominium came and told me the problem is probably a fuse. So he gave me a new fuse and told me to replace it in the back of the dryer. He told me also the plugs are working ok. I haven't tried his solution, but I suppose he is right. Thanks anyhow!

It wont drain or spin


If your washer wont drain or spin, You need to check 3 components on the machine to be sure that it is working fine. The selector switch, the clutch assembly and the drive motor.
Make sure that the selector switch on the control panel, if there is one, is set properly. Check to ensure the button has been pressed all the way in. If it is, then try testing the switch. If it has failed, it will need to be replaced.
To test the switch:
  1. Before you begin to test your washer's selector switch, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box.
  2. A switch is a mechanism that can make, break, or change the connections in a given electric circuit. Washing machine selector switches determine which cycle is to be used. Many selector switches can be as much as six or even eight inches long. Most are black in color and all have metal prongs, called terminals, extending out from the body of the switch.
  3. Remove the cycle selector switch from unit. It will most likely be secured to the unit's frame with a few screws. The terminals extending from the body of the switch are grouped in pairs of two, one group of terminals for each button. Each group must have its wires removed for testing. Carefuly remove the wiring harness leads from the first pair of terminals of the switch. Do not pull on the wire itself. Needle nose pliers may be needed to remove the wire from the terminal. Replace the wires to the terminals before you move on to the next pair of terminals.
  4. Use your ohmmeter to test your switch for continuity. Set your ohmmeter to measure resistance at a scale of Rx1. Touch the metal tips of the test leads together and zero your ohmmeter by adjusting the thumbwheel in the front of the meter until the needle reads '0' on the scale.
  5. You are going to test one button at a time. Push in on the button of the switch terminals that you are testing. Touch an ohmmeter probe to each terminal. The ohmmeter reading should change from infinity to zero ohms. Keep each probe in contact with its terminal and press in on a different button, releasing the first button. The ohmmeter reading should go back to infinity. Replace the wires to the terminal and repeat these steps for each pair of terminals of the selector switch.
  6. Any readings that differ from the ones presented here are indicative of a defective cycle selector switch that will need to be replaced.
To replace the selector switch, please follow the steps below:
  1. Before you begin to test your washer's selector switch, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box.
  2. A switch is a mechanism that can make, break, or change the connections in a given electric circuit. Selector switches determine which cycle is to be used. Many selector switches can be as much as six or even eight inches long. Most are black in color and all have metal prongs, called terminals, extending out from the body of the switch.
  3. Remove the selector switch from the unit. It will most likely be secured to the door frame with a few screws. The terminals extending from the body of the switch are grouped in pairs of two, one group of terminals for each button. Each group must have its wires removed for testing. Carefuly remove the wiring harness leads from the first pair of terminals of the switch. Do not pull on the wire itself. Needle nose pliers may be needed to remove the wire from the terminal.
  4. Attach the wires to the terminals of the new switch. Secure the new switch to the washing machine. Feel free to use the screws from the original switch. Restore power to your washer and run it through a cycle to make sure it is functioning as it should.
Not all washing machines use a clutch assembly. Given that it is such a complicated component, you should have a qualified appliance repair technician examine and repair it for you.
Finally check the drive motor. Many different brands of washing machines contain a two-direction drive motor. These two-direction drive motors turn in one direction for one wash cycle, and in another direction for a different cycle. Though it is uncommon, it is possible for the drive motor to work fine in one direction, while remaining completely inoperable in the other direction. Even if your washer's drive motor works fine in one direction, you will have to replace the entire motor.
To test the drive motor:
  1. Disconnect the power source to your washer before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
  2. Locate your washer's motor. There will be to wire leads connected to the motor. Disconnect the motor's two wire leads from the wiring harness. Set your multimeter to the R x 1 setting. Touch each of the meter's probes to one terminal each. Your motor should show little resistance (a reading of zero, or close to zero).
  3. Now check the ground connection. Place one probe on the bare metal housing of the motor. Place the other probe on each terminal, one at a time. You should not receive any reading on your meter from this test.
If your washer's motor fails either of these tests, you will have to replace it.
To replace the washer motor:
  1. Disconnect the power source to your washer before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
  2. Locate your washer's motor. There will be two wire leads connected to the motor. Disconnect the motor's two wire leads from the wiring harness. The wires will be held in place with metal slip on connectors. Firmly grasp and then pull on these connectors to remove the wires. Do not pull on the wires themselves.
  3. Depending on your model, your motor could be secured to the washing machine with any number of screws. Remove all the screws before you remove the motor. There may also be a spring present to help secure the motor to the machine. Remove the screw before removing the motor, but be sure to replace it after the new motor is in place.
  4. Discard used motor and insert new one in its place. If yours is a model that makes use of stabilizing spring, put it back in place now. Secure the new motor to the machine with screws, if you removed any from the old motor. Reconnect the motor's wiring harness.
  5. Restore power to the unit. Run your washing machine through a cycle to make sure it is functioning as it should.

1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

How do I get the top off my washer so I can access the door switch?


gently pry up the front seam of the washer- move it a ways from the wall. you may chip some porcelain, but they really don't want you to fix your own machine- check for a loose wire- there should only be 2. no loose wire? should be 2 screws take 'em out go to your local parts place, buy a new switch- replace the old one! shouldn't cost more than 10$ cheaper than a new washer! re-connect wires- doesn't matter which goes where. re-seat the top- wash away!!
UNPLUG WASHER BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANYTHING!!!
good luck!

Moved Washer and Now no Electrical


Suggestion: You dont need any special outlet. With a tester (you can get this in any electric shop) see if there is power in the outlet. You said it was hot?? It is not supposed to be hot. Try another outlet; & you could unscrew your machine plug to see if all the three wires are okay, ie. well connected, screwed in.
