My Kenmore washer won't fill up with water, but it will rinse if I turn it to rinse. We tested the water valve and it didn't read anything on the ohms tester. We also tested the sensor switch and nothing. Again we unplugged the one plug with the 2 wires and set the washer to a cycle and no luck. Please help me and do you know if I took it to a appliance store both of the parts do you think they can test them with out the whole washer.
You would want to test for voltage at the water valve when the unit is turned on and calling for water. If you test across the leads on each of the valves and see if you are getting 120 vac. If not then test at the ATC switch for 120 vac going into the switch on terminals W/R to white and going out on for the hot Tan/Red to white and cold yellow red to white. If there is 120 vac going in but nothing going out then the ATC switch is faulty and would need to be replaced.
when my washer starts to fill, it is like it gets confused, it will start and stop until i fill the washer with water from the sink, it also does this on the rinse cycle. any ideas
Answer Chris, The first thing to do, make sure you have plenty of both hot and cold water supplied to the washer from the faucets and hoses. Then replace the Sensor Switch W10248240. The switch controls both the fill level and the water temperature. If the circuitry develops an issue, you will experience irratic water temperatures, and water valve operation. Thanks and Good Luck
My Kenmore washer does nothing on all settings. Won't fill,agitate or spin. I bypassed the lid switch and nothing. I checked power. Any suggestions ?
Answer Hi Bill. The timer has separate 2-pin connector going to it. These leads supply the timer voltage to operate the timer motor. These connections have been known to get loose or bad. Ohm out the timer motor to make sure it is not op. (0-ohms). The timer is part # [W10187167]. There is a sensor switch part # [W10177795] that you can jump the wht/red and the yellow/red and start the cycle and see if the cold water comes in. If it does then jump the wht/red wire to the tan/red wires so the hot water fills momentarily. If this is the case then you know both valves are OK, and the sensor switch part needs replaced. Thank You.
