Kenmore Series 80 washer only agitates for a few minutes
« on: June 25, 2013, 01:15:46 PM »

Model # 11026842692 Kenmore series 80 washer will only agitate for a few minutes on heavy duty load then it stops and the timer will continue to advance through the wash cycle. In order to get the machine to start originally and to agitate for another 2 minute interval you have to  press down on dial outer ring. In the rinse cycle the only way you can get it to agitate is to hold down the outer part of the dial.  Timers for this unit is pretty pricey..I am looking for some feedback that this is indeed the issue.

The dial may not be seated all the way onto the shaft, thus interfering with the push pull action of the knob. Other wise it sounds like a timer problem.
