Default Kenmore series 90 washer won't spin in Perm Press cycle
Model Number: 110.82892100   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Kenmore Series 90 washer model 110.82892100 works fine in the Cotton/Sturdy mode, but won't spin in either the Permanent Press cycle or the Delicate cycle.

Agitates fine, but when it reaches the spin phase, it is silent. No movement or sound. The timer eventually reaches off. To spin them dry I have to move the timer over to the Cotton/Sturdy spin cycle.

Tried changing timer. Lid switch should be fine since Cotton/Sturdy spins okay. Since motor is a 2-speed motor, not sure if it might be the problem.

Really need to troubleshoot this with a multimeter as it could be the speed switch, motor switch, motor or wiring/connections between. Check the orange wire at the cycle switch and at the motor connection. If you can post a clear pic of the wiring diagram and timer chart, that would be a help. Should be on the inside of the back panel (open control panel).

Eric,

Thanks, here are the diagrams. The forum limits them to 800x600 so I hope you can read them. My camera originals are 3000x2000 which are easy to read, but the forum won't let me upload them.

Ok, I can read them good enough. There is no separate speed switch so scrap that idea. Spin speed in perm press and delicates is low and in delicates, agitate in rinse is low, everything else is high speed. Low speed is via the orange wire so check for broken/burnt orange wire at the timer and at the motor connector. If you have a meter, you can check continuity of this wire. If the wire is good, I'd say you have a bad motor switch which can be replaced. It is the part on the motor that the motor connector plugs into. You can verify if you have a multimeter, let me know. Unplug the motor connector and check for burnt/corroded contacts at the orange wire.

Eric, thanks so much for your help. I began to check the orange wire and found no continuity to the motor. It stopped between the timer and the next connector. Closer inspection showed the wire had rubbed against the back and shorted out. See the attached picture. I'm not sure if one wire can be replaced or if that whole harness needs replacing. Or maybe electrical tape around the orange wire in that spot?

You can just replace the wire by splicing it or splicing in a new piece of wire if needed. You need to cut the wire where the bad spot is and strip each end to check the wire strands. If it's not clean copper wire strands, you need to keep cutting it back and stripping til you find good clean wire strands. When you get to that point, if there isn't enough slack in either wire to be able to splice them together directly, you will need to get a piece of new wire to splice between them. You will need blue insulated butt connectors and wire strippers/crimpers from somewhere like Home Depot and a length of 16 gauge insulated (preferably orange) stranded copper wire if you don't have the slack available. Splice the wires or splice in the new length of wire and try it out. Hopefully, the short didn't damage the timer contacts.

Splicing the orange wire as you suggested fixed the problem. I see now why the wire was shorted. While working on a different problem, I had operated the washer with the console swung open which drapes the wires across the back. The vibration of the spin mode must have been too much for that one. Thanks again for your help.
