    Default Kenmore stackable washer issue

    I have a Kenmore stack-able Model 417.90862990

    the washer will fill up and once it fills up it stops running all together. I cant get ti to work at all. I let it set about 20 minutes and i can advance it to the spin cycle and it will drain.

    Hi,

    the washer will fill up and once it fills up it stops running all together
    When the water stops filling does the timer start to move/advance?

    I let it set about 20 minutes and i can advance it to the spin cycle and it will drain.
    The washer must sit a while before running?...first, second, third, any load?

    Water level control ( pressure switch ) is responsible for shutting off the power to the fill valve and redirecting the power to the timer to start the washer.....that and it's wiring should be checked.

    Lid switch is also a common trouble maker for shutting off the washer.

    Motor does have a built in safety/thermal switch that can/will shut off the motor and it needs cooling down time to reset...but that usually happens after a load or two once the motor gets good and hot.
