I have a Kenmore series 80: 110.23832100 washer that fills with water, then agitates until it gets to the rinse cycle then it stops. The agitator turns on all rinse cycles if you manually operate the timer to those positions. You can manually move the timer to the spin cycles & nothing happens (agitator will not run). Do you think this could be a timer problem?
ANSWER Hello Charles,
Of course it could be a timer issue, but without troubleshooting the unit, this would be a guess. I would first check the cold water inlet valve. You see, the unit fills with warm water on fill before the wash cycle. If the cold valve isn't working, it would still fill. When you get to the rinse cycle, the unit will fill with cold water only. If this is the case and the cold valve is bad, it will effectively stop at this point. In light of this information, you should check to make sure the cold water valve hasn't been turned off, check for screens in the water supply hoses and clean if necessary, and check the screens in the water valve itself.
