Thread: Washer runs intermitently

  1. #1

    Washer runs intermitently

    Model Number: 110-92581210
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: More than 10 years

    I have a Sears Kenmore top loading washer. When I start the cycle, it will fill, then agitate for about 10 seconds, then sit doing nothing for about 15 minutes, then agitate for about 10 seconds. It won't drain or spin, or at least it hasn't yet, and won't when I set the timer to that part of the cycle.

    I suspect the timer, but I don't want to just switch out parts without being sure.

    The washer has the metal timer. I don't see any obvious problems with it (I don't see any burn marks.)

    My wife informs me that the behavior I describes is not unlike the gentle cycle. Yes, the washer was on gentle, but it still only runs for a few seconds, even on the spin cycle. I switched to the regular cycle. Same behavior. I switched to the heavy duty cycle. The washer runs as normal. So the motor and timer appear to be fine. Now I am suspecting the cycle selector switch is bad, but I don't know how to test it.
