From memory, they are heat sensors. If there is nothing on the element, it wont allow it to get to full heat.??

Kenmore Kitchen... | Answered 5 hours ago

In that scenario, you need a new element. The hot surface light comes on when you turn on. It has nothing to do with sensing heat.

You need to explain what is it doing. Stitching need a thread properly coming from reel above and going thru the needle. And a thread coming from bobbin under the foot. If you know how to properly guide the thread let me know what is it doing.

97962 is not the complete model number; it's missing the manufacturer's prefix and the version suffix. SearsPartsDirect lists several laundry center models that start with 417.97962. One parts list is here: .The lid lock assembly for this washer is shown on the lower cabinet/top diagram as part 50, .

Steve's response is dead on. You can buy a replacement timer from Sears for $291. In addition, the lack of the unit regenerating probably caused the resin capacity to be exceeded and is permanently damaged. (Withour regeneration, the beads continue to expand and will eventually burst.)

Besides Home Depot, Sams Club, Costco, Lowe's, or Menards have low cost units and would be a better investment than putti a new timer and resin in an old unit.
