Dead washer. Kenmore 110.92591200

10 May 2013 - 04:35 PM

I really wish I was not back here again. On my last visit I found that I had a bad capacitor which I fixed. All was well - for a while. Then the wife tells me that sometimes the washer "paused", and then eventually would continue and finish the cycle. Sometimes it just ran normally.


Today, filled with water, agitated, and then got to rinse/spin cycle. Then just stopped. No humm, no nada. Acts like it is unplugged. Drained some water, moved to fill cycle, solenoid works and water flows. That is all this thing does. Jumped the lid switch. Still nada. No agitate, no spin.


Thoughts ?


Timer ? Any way to jumper the timer ?


I fear it may be time to put this old beast out to pasture. 



110.92591200 Motor

Well, this washer has been repaired many times, but now I'm stumped. About 2 weeks ago, just quit at end of first spin cycle. No issues until that moment. First, checked pump. Clear. Then turned shaft on motor. Agitator worked. Then tried other direction. Basket turns. Coupling OK. Removed motor and jumpered lid switch. Motor still just hummed.


At this point, I assume motor. Ordered new motor off Ebay (realize that may have been an error). Got new motor, installed and put everthing back together. Worked fine.


For one week. (many loads !)


Now, exact same as original symptoms. Disassemble (again) follow same sequence. Motor all by its lonsome on floor just hummed. Truned shaft whilst it was humming and varoom ! Put it on another cycle and worked fine other direction.


Now the bummer - reassembled (still full of clothes and water). Nothing but a hum.


Help ! Really like to fix this thing. What are the odds of the "new" motor being bad ? I would think pretty low.
