Hello everyone,

I have a Kenmore 80 series washer (model #: 110.20852 990 and serial #: CK3841731 and type #: 111) that I bought in 2001. Everything has been working fine so far and I've been happy with it.

A couple weeks ago I had a load in the washer and just as it was about to drain and rinse, it just stopped working!

I thought maybe there was a glitch in the electricity so I set it back to the time that it was to try again, and it ran for probably 10 seconds and then completely gave out. Complete silence, it stopped working for good since when I tried resetting it again it would not do anything.

It didn't drain, I had to take all the clothes out and then scoop all the water out. I'm a novice with appliances but am very interested in learning as I'm seeing this is a very practical skill to have.

I was wondering if anyone has a definite answer to what the problem might be and how I could go about fixing this myself.

Looking forward to your help and thank you in advance.

Cheers!

Monica

You tried just resetting it to the drain/spin portion of the cycle or you tried starting it from the beginning of the cycle again?

Will it still agitate?

Thanks for your quick reply!

I set it to the spin/rinse portion of the cycle, it sounded like agitating, but I'm not 100% sure. It was only for a brief moment until it gave out for good. :S

Hey Dan,

Any luck with figuring out what the problem may be?

I'm afraid I do not know what would cause your symptoms. If the motor is cutting out prematurely, the motor may be defective or there maybe a problem in the timer contacts. It would need actual investigation to determine the possible cause.

Sorry.

Hey Dan,

We picked the washer up and completely drained all the leftover water from it, quite the job!

We're thinking because the water isn't draining, it must mean something is up with the water pump, so I am trying to find a pump online right now.

I appreciate your help nonetheless and will keep you updated with my progress so that it may be of help to anyone in a similar situation in the future! :)
