Kenmore 110.29822800 Washing Machine agitating me.

6 posts in this topic

I am having a problem with our:

Kenmore 800 Washing Machine (110.29822800)

When you press the knob to start a load, the machine will start to agitate as it fills with water....at cycle "end" clothes are still soaking wet as if the final spin cycle didn't happen correctly.

My "solution" for the final spin cycle is to shut off the water supply...turn the knob to SPIN...and let it spin.

I have found a few other threads by searching Google for 110.29822800.

General consensus seems to indicate this part needs to be replaced:

(via http://applianceguru...rum2/28326.html et al)

Thats great....

BUT....

How do remove the old one ???

I haven't found a guide to open the top console of the machine ...where I assume this part is located at.

Any help folks?

Need appliance parts? Call 877-803-7957 now!

Slide a old CD under the right and left front sides of the control panel to trip the clips holding the console to the top panel.

Fold the console to the rear to access the parts.

Your Googled search is probably correct on the faulty part.

Order it from the links on this forum. If the part is not right you can return it.

Yes, it was....and now it's filling then agitating [as it is supposed to]....no parts were changed, just wash cycle ~ from normal to handwash...and that "seems" to have remedied the situation.

For how long?

Who knows?
