After use machine went thru wash cycles then rinse water did not drain out but kept adding water till over flowed. Could this be a faulty timer switch? Thanks,
Answer Hello Hayworth,
This will be a clogged pressure switch hose or a defective pressure switch. I cannot provide part numbers without a valid model number. I think the one you listed is probably a Kenmore model number but there are digits missing, probably the three before the "." since Sears decided to put the first three characters before it and in many cases, in a different font.
Whirlpool top loading washer clothes are wringing wet after final spin cycle. Only does this with heavier loads (small or large) such as 4 pair jeans, throw blankets, etc. One repair guy says its a bad timer. Says spin cycle should last at least 7 minutes, mine is running around 3 or 4 minutes. Another repair guy says it's a bad clutch assembly. Two totally different scenarios. What do you think?
Without knowing the model number we would not be able to get an exact time that the unit should spin. The issue could be that there is a clogged drain pump that is not allowing the water to spin out all the way. If the timer is advancing too quickly this would cause the unit to not spin long enough. The spin cycle should last around 7 to 9 minutes. If it were the clutch it would not spin at all.
Whirlpool washer does not fill, agitates right away.it fills water in extrarinse only. Spins and drains after extra rinse cycle. Other modes it does not fill with water, it only spins.
You will want to check to make sure that the pressure hose is not kinked or clogged. If the pressure hose or air dome are clogged this will cause the unit to agitate immediately.
Once the timer has completed the cycle it refills and continues to wash another cycle. Is this a bad timer?
Answer Hello Jimmy. Based on the information you provided, the timer is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
Washer is stopping mid cycle in the same spot. When I turn the knob a little further it continues and completes the wash. Would this part fix that problem?
Answer Hi Bert. From the complaint, you will need to change the timer because the internal cams and contacts are stuck in the same spot. The timer is part # W10175553. Thank You.
How do you get the knob off to take the timer off. What releases it from the shaft. So the knob and dial can be removed. To get to the screw to take the timer out?
Answer Hello Bill. With the knob pushed in, you will hold the clip on the back of the timer W10175553 and pull outward on the timer knob while holding the clip. The knob will pull off the shaft. If you do not hold the clip, the knob will not pull off the shaft. Hope this helps.
