Kenmore 800 "load sensing" model 110.29822800, begins agitating immediately & for entire fill & at end of spin cycle fills for 10 sec. with water.
I have a Kenmore 800 "load sensing" top loader washing machine- model 110.29822800 (just over 1 yr. old) It seems ONLY on the NORMAL cycle if it is set on REGULAR (I've tested a few other cycles, all of which seem to work just fine)...where the washer immediately starts agitating while filling with water at the beginning of the cycle, and continues to agitate while water is filling. Then the rest of the cycle seems to run just fine. But after it is finished with the spin, it fills up with water for about 10 seconds and then stops, leaving the clothes wet. I have read things that said it could either be the sensor switch or the timer. I have opened up the console and checked the load sense switch, by disconnecting the wires as mentioned by another post from an Expert on here (the plug with the white, violet and blue w/ orange stripe). I closed everything up, plugged it back in and went to start the NORMAL-Regular cycle and nothing happened. I just want to be sure that because of the results of this test, that it is indeed the load sensor switch and not the timer. If so, I can not figure out how to get that load sensor switch removed from the panel. Do you have a detailed instruction page for this or could you possibly explain it to me? Also... I want to be sure I order the correct part. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11029822800/0582/0153200/K0904030/00002?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=11029822800 When looking at the parts order page for Sears, is the load sensor #17 (PART NUMBER: W10177795), named "Sensor Switch," on the diagram? If it is the timer, I will assume the part I need to get is the "Timer" (PART NUMBER: W10187167). Is this correct? Please advise as to which part you think is causing the issue and needs to be replaced, and also instructions on how to remove the part from the panel. I can't afford a new washer or a large repair bill. :( Thanks so much in advance for any help you may be able to provide!
