Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

The timer on my whirlpool washing machine model LSN8244AW0 does not stop when it comes to stop mode on the dial with lid down.

Can hear the timer continue to run as it goes by the stop mode on the dial. Pushing the timer dial button will stop or opening the lid will stop.

You will need to replace the timer. Here is the part to order.

    Thanks for your reply. Was thinking the timer may be bad but want to give you a couple of other details to see if you still think the same. If you rotate the timer dial to the regular wash cycle and then pull out the knob like normal, the water will start to fill but the agitation will start to work right away unless you leave the lid open. With the lid open, it works normally and will fill until until it reaches the correct water level and then starts the agitation. However if you close the lid anytime during the fill cycle, it will start agitating. It works exactly the same (incorrectly) during the rinse cycle. Once rinse is complete it will do the drain properly as long as the lid is closed. If lid is open during drain, it reacts properly with the switch not allowing motion. After drain and spin you have to push the timer dial in to stop the machine otherwise it will keep going and start filling with water again even if you leave the lid open. In other words, the only way to stop the timer is by pushing in the button. It keeps going right past the red stop dashes on the dial. Looking forward to your additional feedback.

    Yes, it is definitely the timer. Sound like there is a stuck contact inside of it. replace that timer and all should be good. Keep me posted!

SOURCE: washing machine

remove the left and right edge trims on the control panel
remove the phillips screws under the edge trims
raise control panel ~1 inch and flip over backwards.

  • ensure air tube is attached( water level sensor operates off air tube from bottom of drum to control body, (bottom is not loose or there would be water all over the floor))
  • Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing(usually makes water level lower so doubt this is the fault)
  • ensure wires are connected to control body.
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test whether just the adjustment is required,

  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed just dont shock yourself on the cable connectors
  6. test, adjust, test adjust. (water level switch may need to be flicked hi-med & back to test adjustment
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
The water level switch body contains a small spring that is not really up to the job and stretches over years,
do this repair, on call, no parts, takes 15 minutes,, 3-4 times a month

The lid switch is the culprit. Push down on the lid it should start. It needs to be adjusted . the tab on the lid is not activating the switch. Try triming the door bumpers.

If the timer and lid switches are funtional and the machine is filling and shutting off correctly that only leaves the motor. Have the motor tested or replace it. Even though the timer is running it is possible that it is still at fault. If you have access to another timer try switching them to make sure it isn't the timer. This does sound like a faulty motor and I would start with that assumption.

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.

WASHING MACHINE stopped in mid-cycle


if it stops at the drain and spin cycle check the lid switch,open the lid,set the washer to spin cycle and pull out the timer knob,stick a screw driver into the hole where the strike from the lid goes into and push down,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push down on the switch in the hole then you have a bad lid switch but if your machine does run sometime it sounds like the switch will work if you push down on it,could be cracked where the screws go into it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5aW9WkTFhE watch video on how to replace it.if you do hear a clicking sound when you open and close the lid or push down with the screw driver you could have a bad timer but check the lid switch first

You have a timer problem, the contacts are welded in spin mode.
This is almost always caused by advancing the timer by hand when the dial is pulled out in the "ON" position, causing arcing of the contacts.

Machine fills up with water, goes through the agitate cycle then stops and wont go into next cycle


Your Lid latch switch is most likely broken, you will need to replace it, you can not bi pass this switch. you can order it from your closest appliance distributor.
Unplug or turn off breaker to washer.
Replace by removing front panel, should be 2 screws at the bottom of washer.
Slide and depress lid latch down to release.
unhook wires and reinstall the same.

If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.

Pull crown to position 2.

50 seconds=1 beep.
40 seconds=1 beep.
30 seconds=2 beeps.

Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Resetting the Hands:

Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

Agitates but no spinning or draining


Check the lid switch for continuity.
Open the control panel, disconnect the lid switch from the top of the cabinet.
Use a volt/ohm meter set for continuity. Insert the probes into the connector attached to the cabinet. With the lid closed it should get a reading. If no reading replace the switch.
While it is open you can make a jumper wire and jump out the lid switch wire going to the timer. Then turn the dial to spin and turn it on. If it spins it verifies a bad lid switch. If not, you have a bad timer.

Timer runs continuously - Does not stop at all


There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem
