REcently changed the timer, coupler and dog ears.
Everything was working fine until this past Saturday...machine was washing a load and I first smelled a burning electrical smell. My husband came home and he couldn't smell it because the wash was going through the softner cycle and just drowned out the smell. That wash finished w/o any problem.
smithlpoole Posted on 9/9/2008 12:42PM that Kenmore washer wasn't aggitating properly nor was it running through cycles but would spin on the last spin if you turned it there. Now, the washer just stopped running altogether. I had to ring out all of the clothes by hand.
When you turn the dial, you get absolutely nothing not even a noise. The only setting you get a slight light buzz is ONLY when it's turned close to the end of the wash cycle near the cycle when the fabric softner comes in.
This washer is very old and on it's last leg and I don't want to spend a lot more money on it if possible. But, if it's a quick fix I would love to just fix it until our budget is a little better.
My fridge (which is already being blogged on this forum), washer and dryer are all going at once...who says their not feeling the effects of the economy....I sure as heck am.
PS, I would like to add that the bleach dispenser was clogged and water had been leaking on the right side of the washing machine for quite some time before this was discovered. When we changed the coupler, much of the right side underneath the dryer was pretty rusted from so many months of water running on it. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with it.
