I have a kenmore series 80 heavy duty washer model # 110.27812690. Worked fine until tonight. Now it won't work for more than 2 or 3 minutes - then the washer just stops. If I push the timer back in and wait a few minutes I can get it to start again for 2 or 3 minutes - then stops. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated - Thanks!

** the washer just stops. **

In what cycle? wash, spin, both??

** it won't work for more than 2 or 3 minutes **

That sounds like the motor may be overheating and cutting out on its internal overload protector. Once it has a chance to cool, the protector will reset allowing the motor to operate again.

Someone may need to verify that the motor is still getting power when it stops. If it was still getting power but not running, that would usually eliminate the control system (aka timer) as a possibility.

You can see the motor used on your model at the following link:

Thanks for the reply. I had it verified today and it is indeed the motor cutting out - thanks for your assistance!
