Default Kenmore fills then just hums
Model Number: 11020832991   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hello. I have a Kenmore 80 series that will fill with water and then nothing. Something just hums from the point it stops filling. I have replaced the motor with the tought it was bad. Checked the motor coupling and it is fine. I can turn the motor shat (at pump point) with a large wrench and the basket will spin, thus seeming as though the transmission and such is fine. The pump does not appear or act clogged as can use the pump to remove water by turn with my drill.

The last thing I can think of and read about is the timmer switch, however, I dont want to just start throwing money "chasing" parts. Can you tell me any thougths you may have..... Thank you in advance.
Robert

Hi Robert and Beth

This is kind of a mystery. I am assuming that your problem exists during both agitate, drain and spin in all cycles.

I suggest you take the motor off and leave it connected and put the machine in spin (you will have to by pass the lid switch) and see if the motor turns. If everything checks out I am leaning towards the capacitor. It is very unusual that they fail, but given your symptoms and what you have already done that seems a logical place to go. If that is not the problem wiring to the motor, the motor connection or the timer would be suspects.

I agree that just changing out parts is not something you want to do, that may be what you have to do in this case.

Thank you. I actually did change out the capacitor last night when I got home, all is working fine again and Beth is happy.

Thank you for your help.
