Kenmore stack W/D issue

ROMSWMBO has a Kenmore stackable washer dryer, model number 110.98752796 that doesn't like to do the high speed agitate after filling itself up. No noise at all during the time it should be agitating, except the sound of the timer motor doing its thing - the agitator/spin motor is motionless. It also likes to kick into the spin/drain cycle before it has pumped at least some of the water out, and this leads to water being spun right out the top of the tub and onto the floor. It spins fine, it'll spray water onto the spinning clothes during a rinse cycle fine, and when the timer calls for a low speed agitation it works fine too. A visual inspection of the wiring harness, motor, and timer all looks OK. I'm suspecting the timer has some bad internal contacts, but the timer case is riveted shut. Don't really feel like throwing parts at it to fix it without knowing what's wrong.
Anybody got some insight into what's not happening on this machine?

I would go after the connectors first... especially strip connectors that go to the brain box.

I never found reinventing the wheel or trying to decipher what the manufacturer/designers had in mind for their appliance operation. However, some seem to like that sort of puzzle. I use a manual: http://www.appliancerepair.net/washi...s-forward.html


Good luck!

That's a good link and has been bookmarked

Found the problem: A wiring connector block had a bent pin that was stopping the sockets from fully engaging and locking together. Not sure if it was like it since birth, but it is fixed now and the machine is running as it should be. I'm a "sexy brainiac" in her eyes, and life is good
