Q:

My Kenmore Portable Compact Automatic Washer agitator stopped working or at moments is barely working. Can I address this on my own and how difficult would it b

A:

Washers share most of the same type malfunctions. We all hope the fix is simple. I found two links that should help. The first is the owner's manual so you will have access to the troubleshooting guide when needed. The second link is a previous expert post that answers the same question for your model. The expert will still be adressing your question so if more help/information is needed just add to this link. Hope this helps! http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/12131/KENMORE-Residential-Washers-L0710496?brand_name_search=110.42722200 http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/133302-kenmore-washer-agitating-8

Barbara thanks for the links. I have the owners manual and the trouble shooting section in it is basically useless in this instance. However the other link seems quite useful. It's a bit go through in the limited time I have at the moment. Going to print out the service manual pages and start on this tomorrow or Monday. I replaced the pump last year and that wasn't to difficult at all, hoping this is just as easy. Seeing how I already started this thread I want to continue with it and will also join in the other. Hoping in between now and starting on the washer I can have this narrowed down more to save some time and work. All the other cycles seem to function fine except for the agitation. Fill, drain and spin seem ok just the agitation not functioning properly. It seems to want to agitate, if I aid it a little it agitates a bit then quits.

Had a little time so I worked on it a bit. The link was helpful but also limited. It appears to be more for the newer wirlpool style. My washer is a Kenmore model 110.42722200 it appears similar to the Whirlpool but slightly different. I performed the actuator and switch test for the agitator and it passed agitating fine. The belt appeared loose and has about twice the deflection it should not to mention my hands getting black from belt wear on the belt and pulleys. At this point I believe the belt is slipping when the washer is filled with water and a load of laundry in agitation/wash cycle but has enough grip to spin seeing how it is only turning in one direction on the spin cycle. My washer appears different than that in the diagrams because it is a different belt than what is pictured and only goes over two pulleys a large and a small. Also it doesn't have a back panel that comes off to allow access to the motor and nut to loosen to tighten the belt. This washer is from 2002 -2003. So now my question is how do I tighten the belt?

Thank you for the thread replies. It sounds like you narrowed down the problem as a loose belt. This is good diagnosing & tightening the belt should be easy enough. I am sending you the model specific access & repair instructions to take care of this problem. I am also sending you the test mode just incase you need other testing options to help diagnosing. Remember to disconnect power before attempting access.

Turns out it is not the belt. To make matters worse it would not only not agitate but wouldn't spin either. I had to manually help it along it in an additional drain and spin setting to get it to spin properly to drain most of the water out of the load of laundry. So back to the drawing board with more tests. Initially I I removed the belt to check the motor and see if it would spin ok and it did that fine with plenty of power. Also did the diagnostic test (turning the knobs and push/holding pushing the start pause buttons) to test the agitate function and it agitated fine. Did these earlier in the week. Got the belt and tried to do a load last night to no avail. So now what, test the wires and plugs or check something else?

I'm sorry to hear this. It sounded like we were headed in the right direction. It almost sounds like the pump is not draining out fast enough or the control is not advancing correctly. You may end up needing a meter for final testing. Normally, if the unit works in the test mode but not in the operation mode it will be the control board causing the problem. I am sending you more troubleshooting & testing instructions that covers a wide selection of different symptoms. This type of difficult diagnosis may require calling out a service technician to finalize everything.

Q:

Igniter Failure JGBC20BEH1WH Ge Gas range

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

During the cleaning of the stove top, did any of the cleaning solution or water drip down onto the burner/igniter? If so, it could be wet and preventing the spark. This does happen periodically with cleanings. 

I would recommend allowing the igniters to naturally dry out, and if they still do not work afterwards, you will more than likely need replacement spark electrodes. The part number is WB19K20. I suspect they will start working again once they've dried out.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question. 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. If the fuel mixture in the blower is older than 5 weeks old, it should be drained. Then refill with fresh fuel mix. If this does not help I suspect there is a problem with the fuel system. I recommend checking in the fuel tank first. When you look in the tank, you should see a fuel line with a white filter attached to the end. Then inspect the fuel line. If it is hard and brittle, it has to be replaced. Here is a video that shows how to replace the fuel line. If the fuel line is fine, I suspect the carburetor is to blame. The carburetor will have to be cleaned or replaced.  Here is a video that show how to clean the carburetor. Before you remove the carburetor, make sure to note the fuel line and cable connections. This will save a lot of frustration later. The parts for the blower can be ordered from the following link.  Parts for Craftsman blower

  If this does not cure the problem I recommend removing the muffler. Then check the operation. If the engine runs fine, you need to clean the screen in the muffler.   I hope this helpful. If you need further assistance, please reply below with more details.   If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears  technician.  Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:  Sears Home Services.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Valued Customer, I am sorry you could not get the blower running right again. I searched the part list for carburetor rebuild kits. The manufacturer does not offer a rebuild kit for these carburetors. I suspect the reason is cost. The complete carburetor cost $25.00 and most kits cost $15.00. For 10 dollars more, you have a new carburetor that is factory set. If you would like to order the carburetor for the blower, you can do so from the following link. Carburetor part number 545081855 for Craftsman blower model 358794743 I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

There are rebuild kits for this carb but none sold by Sears This is a Walbro WT-875-A carb. Walbro makes both a rebuild and gasket/diaphragm kit. Stens combines those 2 kits into a $9 aftermarket kit. Stens 615-463 http://www.amazon.com/Stens-615-463-Carburetor-Replaces-K20-WAT/dp/B001OK8JN0

Update: I took my blower to a local repair shop this afternoon in search of fuel line. He asked why I thought it needed new fuel line. I told him what was going on. He said it didn't need new fuel lines and immediately reached for the carb adjustment tool. Backed the low mixture screw up until it was idling smoothly. Runs great now with a smooth idle. Here's what I'd checked: Carb bolts - tight Cylinder head bolts - tight Air filter - clean Fuel filter - changed before this season Spark plug - new plug installed (properly gapped) at the beginning of the season Fuel - I fill my 2-cycle OPE gas cans with 1/4 gal of 89 oct fuel with 1/2 OZ SeaFoam. This ensures I always have fresh fuel. I use Lucas semi-synthetic 2-cycle oil. For anyone who stumbles upon this thread and is experiencing a similar issue, check the items above. If all checks out you may need your carb mixture screws adjusted.
