KENMORE 110.88752792 Stacked laundry center..

15 posts in this topic

My Kenmore Stacked laundry center, washer is having problems with Rinse/spin. It fills up with water for rinse, started to rinse & then stopped.

 

We tried moving the dial around to another position for rinse & spin but nothing...

 

Any help would be great fully received,

 

Thank you,

 

Les     :rolleyes:

Thank you Eric. I had thought that it maybe but I am no washing machine expert. It looks as if it's not too difficult to change. Would that be right?

 

Thanks,

If you move it to the start of a Wash Cycle, will it Agitate (after it re-fills) ?

Spin must have worked OK before the Rinse cycle ...

 

  If it agitates, drains and spins ok during the wash cycle but not the rinse cycle, you have a faulty timer.

The Lid Switch would prevent Spin ..

when reading the previous posts,

I thought that It did Spin OK.

  The lid switch only affects drain/spin, it has no function during agitate. Either you gave us incorrect information as to the problem or you still have a problem, apparently an intermittent one.

I appreciate any help from all of you but please do not insinuate that you had miss information because your diagnosis was wrong.  I don't have a problem with it neither should you. Please read all of the symptoms that I described again.

 

Thank you,   :thanks:

... It fills up with water for rinse,

it must have emptied the Wash Water with the Spin cycle before Rinse

(Lid Switch must have been good during that Spin cycle)

  You stated, "it fills up with water for rinse, started to rinse & then stopped". I read that to mean it fills, starts agitating and then stops agitating. Perhaps, rinse to you has a different meaning. Wash = fill, agitate, drain, drain/spin  Rinse = fill, agitate, drain, drain/spin.

 

  You did not indicate that the only problem during the rinse cycle was that it wouldn't drain or spin. This washer does have the old style lid switch which is very prone to coming apart and could become intermittent but drain/spin during the wash cycle and not during the rinse cycle on a regular basis is not an indication of a bad lid switch. We were under the impression from your wording that the washer stopped right after it started agitating in the rinse cycle which cannot be caused by a bad lid switch (on this washer).

This is what I said:

The machine had gone through the wash cycle & had refilled with water to rinse (this obviously follows wash & empty whichever way you put it) then stopped without rinsing or spinning it was still full of water. I am sorry but I don't know what the big deal is here I appreciate your diagnosis but I called a local parts guy here in Orlando for a timer & explained the problem exactly as above & he told me that it was the lid switch. To be honest being a layman I couldn't figure out if the machine washed & pumped out, then stopped for the remainder of the rinse /spin cycle why would it be the switch & not the timer....anyway thanks again....

  Then I would say that I misinterpreted what you were saying. I assumed it stopped agitating before the end of the normal rinse agitation time. Should have had you go back to drain/spin in the wash cycle. Sorry about that. Glad you didn't get the timer and went with the lid switch. Take a close look at the old lid switch. They usually start coming apart and can be glued back together or cinched with a tie wrap. It's a common problem with those type switches.
