Also, how do I test the timer on my Kenmore washing machine?
Touch the two probes of the volt-ohm meter to the contact points to be tested. Turn the dial of the timer to the appropriate cycle that is being tested. There should be no continuity reading on the volt-ohm meter during the test. If there is a reading on the volt-ohm meter, the timer is faulty.
Beside above, how does a washing machine timer work? A washer's timer will generally allow the washer to fill with water while the lid is open; however, most new washers will not allow any mechanical functions while the lid switch is open. Some older models will allow agitation, but no washing machines should spin with the lid open or a broken lid switch.
Furthermore, how do I troubleshoot my Kenmore washer?
- Washer will not stop when the lid is open. Bad lid switch.
- Water will not drain out of the washer. Clogged waste hose. Bad drain pump. Bad pump motor.
- Washer does not spin/agitate. Broken drive belt. Bad tub motor.
Why is my washer not changing cycles?
If your washer does not advance through the cycle or stalls at a wash or rinse fill portion, then the water inlet valve may be at fault. You should first verify that the inlet hoses do not have any kinks or restrictions and that the inlet screens are clean.
