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.
