I know there are some issues with my timer, but I'm concerned there are other problems as well. Basically, washer fills and nothing else. The push/pull knob when pushed in, will not turn the cycle selector (stripped or something). However, I can push and pull (start/stop mechanism), and manipulate timer control to make a noise, but it just stops after 10 to 20 seconds. I can manually turn it, but can't get anything to happen other than water filling. When I get the timer to make the noise as if it's running, when I open and close the lid, it will stop the timer noise which leads me to believe the lid switch is functioning. I'm perplexed. Help me, please.
Based on the information provided, this issue sounds like it would be caused by a bad timer motor that is not allowing the gears to rotate and make contact. If the gears are stripped this would also be the issue. The timer part number is 8546685.
When I turn on the washer to start to fill it will on come on. Then all of a sudden it will start to fill and then stop and restart. I have already replaced the time. I think it might be the water fill switch?
You will want to check the water inlet valve to make sure that neither of the screens are plugged up. If they are they can cause this type of issue to occur when the water temp is set for warm water. If the valves are clean then the temp control would most likely be the issue.
I broke the knob on my timer and had one from an old washer to replace it and in the process of switching them a spring fell out and I need to know where it goes?
Answer Hello Israel. The model number you provided does not use the spring. The timer knob from the other washer may not work on the one your trying to put it on.
The washing machine does not fill after spin for the rinse cycle have to put it on wash again to get it to fill and rinse no matter what type of cycle I use. Your consideration in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Since the water that comes into the unit on the rinse is cold water then you will want to check the cold water inlet valve screen to make sure that it is not clogged. If clogged then it will need to be cleaned out. Also check for voltage to the inlet valve to make sure that there is power going to the valve at the beginning of the rinse cycle when it is supposed to fill. If there is voltage then the valve is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Last cycle wount spin water out completely. Please help!
Answer Hello Vic,
Open the lid and grab one edge of the inner tub and try to move it. If it appears to be loose, (not referring to the spring loaded suspension), the drive block has probably failed. If the tub isn't loose, fill the tub at least partially with water and pull the drain line out of the standpipe far enough to see how fast the water is exiting the machine. If the water is coming out fully, I would next check the motor coupler. If you need more information, we have illustrated instructions on the dis-assembly and repair of these units, but due to incompatible formats, it cannot be posted here. We would have to send it to an e-mail address in the attachment.
My washer runs through the cycles but when it gets to the spin cycle it isn't emptying the water all the way out leaving the clothes soaked. The timer does go thru the entire cycle to the end but it's leaving the clothes soaked. Your thoughts?

Answer Hello Stu. First I must address a touchy issue. Soap usage. A characteristic of material which has soap still in it is that the material will feel soggy. Detergent quality plays a big part in this. The cheaper the detergent, the more suds are in it as opposed to the chemical composite which actually causes the separation of the soil particles from the fabric. So you should use a quality detergent and use about half of what the directions say to use. You see, the detergent of today is much more concentrated than it used to be. Also, according to the engineers, most clothes that are washed today are lightly soiled so it doesn't take as much detergent as you think. Where it comes to soaping the washer, less is better. The machine has to rinse out all the soap you put in so this will actually result in a better wash result.
Now that's out of the way, I would check to see that the machine is draining the water at the drain hose. (pull it up out of the standpipe while it's draining to see). If the water isn't coming out good you should check that no foreign objects are in the pump 3363394. If this is ok, check the inner tub to insure that it isn't loose in the outer tub, (The outer tub is on a suspension system so this is not where the slack is that I'm referring to). If the inner tub seems loose inside the outer tub, you might be able to tighten the spanner nut TJ90TB123A as a correction to the problem. This is located under the agitator. If it stripped the lugs on top of the drive block 389140 it may have to be replaced.Either way the nut has to be removed or tightened with a spanner wrench TJ90TB123A. Let us know if you need further instructions and we will be happy to help! Good luck and have a great day!
