Kenmore washer temperature circuit board

11 posts in this topic

Kenmore Model 110.2683120 top-load washer. no power going to the solenoid fill valve. I have narrowed the problem to either wiring or the plug-in circuit board.Anybody?

No voltage to either hot or cold???  Could be the temp board, fill level switch, temperature switch or the timer.  Need to get a volt stick and see where the voltage is going in but not back out.

Thanks for your reply!I did a continuity check on the selector switch and it was okay. when pulling the timer knob out, the light stick would blink on both hot and cold solenoids, but I would like to know if there is a way to bypass the temperature circuit board just to verify that that is the problem.

Can we get a re-check on the model number, should have 8 digits after the 110.

See if you're getting 120v to the common wire on the pressure switch.  I forget which color it is, but it's on your wiring diagram.  If you have 120v on the common wire, then replace the pressure switch:

Don't know about the other folks here, but I don't think I've ever had a problem with one of those boards. Usual issue with these is the wiring to the thermistor, which is incorporated into the vacuum break (where the water enters the tub).

Believe common to the pressure switch is violet.  We have had the thermisters so out also but then would only get one temperature of water, like hot only, this why I was asking if they did not get any hot, cold, or warm at all.  I would hope the water is turned on to the washer. I do not know of any way of by-passing the ATB.
