Kenmore Washer

3 posts in this topic

Have Kenmore model 110.26912691 that starts and completes the wash cycle, then properly drains and refills to begin the rinse cycle and then just stops.  If you try to manually put it through it's paces nothing happens, it's as if you have no power. I wait about 10 min. and then move the selector switch just past the rinse indicator the machine starts and completes as it should. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Need to see whether this is a timer problem or a motor problem. When the machine stops, use your meter or light stick to see if you're still getting voltage to the motor. If so, then the motor is overheating and kicking out. If not, then probably a bad timer. Disassembly help here:

If you can read the wiring diagram, you should be able to make this test without having to remove the washer cabinet.
