Question about Kenmore 94802 Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore 94802 - Goes through all cycles.. Doesn't stop after last spin cycle.

I have the Sears White-on-white Kenmore 27 in. Super Capacity Electric Laundry Center. Model number: 94802

Manufacturer: Frigidaire
Part/Model: 417.90812990

The washer fills, agitates, drains, rinses and spins fine.. gets to the end of the final spin but keeps spinning. It does not shut off at the end of the final spin cycle.

It works in the sense that it does clean our laundry, but we need to be there to make sure to turn it off after it gets to the end on the last spin cycle or it just keeps spinning.. for hours (we found on the first time when we had a load going and ran in town and back)

It has this issue on Delicate, Regular and Perm Press. I don't think it's the timer. I am wondering if there is a sensor that tells the machine that there is no water left in the tub/drum, perhaps that is faulty?

    I would like to remove the timer so that I may test it with a multimeter. The knob on this unit does not spin off or pull off. Does anyone know how to remove the timer knob?

I hate to say it, but it sure sounds like a timer problem. There are contacts inside that move and switch items no matter what setting its in. Its a possibilty that the power contact is stuck closed and when you manually turn it off it breaks contact. The job to replace is really not that hard, remove console (unplug unit first), mark your wires, then just replace. The part though is a touch expensive (131789200 Sears Part Number). Probably would be a little cheaper than buying a new unit I guess. Let me know if you need any further information. Jim

I have an electric dryer with all the bells and whistles. It takes over 3 hours to dry a load of towels., Any help or ideas


check your venting hose make sure it is not bent at a 90 degree angle or traveling to far before it goes outside . best to have nice straight route to outside . this increases airflow . or it may be plugged up

Why won't it start?


YOU MAY WANT TO TEST YOUR DOOR SWITCH WITH AMULTI METER


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:
Check your venting and lint basket.Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity it should show OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
overheating.

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale at 20K ohms. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12. (1200) ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

OR you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run, the heater should not heat in order not to create a fire but if the motor is not running, and the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually)Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Cell phone gets hot


Probably due to lots of apps running in current and background sessions. Turn some of the unneeded apps off, and understand that as you use your phone the battery will become warm as it provides the current to the phone.
