Kenmore 70 Series won't spin second time
« on: March 18, 2010, 04:27:09 PM »
I have a Kenmore 70 series that won't spin after the rinse cycle.  It will spin if it manually turn the dial to spin.  I am confused...not sure why it would spin once but not twice?  Any advice?

Does it do it in all the cycles?

Yes, it does it in all the cycles...even if i put it on second rinse.  However, if i push in the knob and turn it manually to spin it works just fine.  It's confusing to me : )

agreed, the timer needs to pause, to kick in the drive tube assy and turn the tub, if the timer does not pause, you will not spin.
