Kenmore washer 70 series .... When i put the dirty clothes in and close the washer lid, and start the washer , the water didnt stop, water in the washer overflowed, cause it wont stop filling.
Answer Ponex, Start the washer in a regular cycle, while the washer is filling with water, push the timer knob in, or unplug the power cord from the outlet(do this several times).If the water continues to flow into the washer with the timer off or the cord unplugged from the outlet, you will need to replace the water inlet valve. If the water stops flowing when off or unplugged, you will need to check or replace the water level switch and air dome hose. At present the timer is not likely the issue.
Washer hums and will not dispense any water (hot,cold combinations)
Water valves, temp switch and water level switches replaced without help.
Could the Timer switch be bad and cause this?
Answer Hello John. First thing to check is the water supply to the machine. If it is turned off, or the hoses have screens that are clogged, that is the issue. If the valve is humming, it is not getting any water to the valve in the unit.
How do you open the top of the washer for repairs?
Answer Hello Linda. Watch this video to learn how to access the inside of the control panel. The timer is different, but to access is the same. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsP0hjQfBfA
The machine will work on wash cycle but stops, won't spin or drain on any of the cycles. I kept moving it around until I was able to get it to drain. Is this the timer and is it something I can put in.
Answer Lea, Your first check needs to be at the lid and the lid switch assembly. Make sure the lid hinges and screws are tight and there's no excess play in the lid, then check and make sure the lid switch is not defective or loose in the mounting bracket and top. The washer can fill and wash with the lid open, but will not drain spin. If the switch and lid are OK, then consider the timer.
The washer goes thru the wash cycle and stops at the spin cycle. Is this a timer problem or a lid switch problem?
Answer Hi Brenda. Send us your exact model # so we can get you the correct parts info. Does it now completely stop at the spin cycle ? If so then the timer chosen is part # 3949210. Since you did not say it stops in the rinse cycle it may not be a clogged cold water inlet screen. Check this also and we can assist. you with the correct water valve also. Thank You.
