The cycle timer could be at fault.

SOURCE: Will not drain or spin

Unless you jarred the machine it's the timer. You can check this by bypassing the lid switch and seeing if it will cycle.

SOURCE: Washer doesn't agitate

sounds like your washer went mellow on you(doesn't get agitated, right)?

ok. enough humor.

sounds like there's a problem with the motor/belt/control board in that order

I had the same problem and ended up replacing the control board which solved it.  Contact Westland Sales at 800-356-0766 ext. 5 for tech support.

Hi Norm. Welcome to FixYa.
The first thing to check with the kind of symptoms your machine exhibits is the operation of the lid switch. Make sure that the pin/plunger on the lid itself has not broken off, and check the actuator lever on the switch itself. It is REALLY common on your model for the actuator arm to break off or crack, and this will cause no spin/no pump problems. Your machine is built by Whirlpool and the part number for the switch assembly is a 3849238. You can get it at any local whirlpool parts center in your area.

I hope you find this info helpful and thank you for allowing us to serve you.

Happy New Year from the FixYa crew!

Lg top load washer keeps filling and has to be manually stopped but it will drain when put on the spin cycle.


HI,

From your description, it sounds like there may be a problem with the inlet water solenoid valve(s). They can stick after several years of use. The se valves are located in the machine, just inside where you connect the water hoses.

My kenmore diswasher model#363.153221100 when i start the wash cycle starts to fill up with water but then drains the water back out immediately and the wash cycle never starts.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This problem is caused when the motor goes bad and needs replacement. The control will fill water and then sends signal to the motor to start a cycle, if it won't work then it will drain the water and so won't start the cycle. However, it can also be a bad door latch-lock assembly as if the control senses that the door is not closed it won't start the cycle. If you hear any humming buzzing sound from the bottom of the unit then replace the motor if not then replace the latch assembly. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine gets stuck in cycle.


Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

The washing machine only keeps filling with water never stops


there is a water sensing device in your unit that is not working, it is located at the top end of a small plastic tube cumming from the washing drum the unit will have a number of wires going to the top or side of it and the plastic tube attached to the bottom, replace this unit

Kenmore washing machine will not fill with water.


The drain hose might be too low. Make sure the drain hose is at least three feet above the floor.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle


if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.
