Question and Answers

Q:

directions for replacing the cycle control selector

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you're asking how to remove the timer, you will need to disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the timer knob and dial. To remove the timer knob; push the timer knob in and rotate it counter clockwise (CCW) until it threads off. Slide the selector dial off. Remove the two hex head screws which were hidden by the dial. Next, the console must be placed in the service position by removing the screws located at the bottom of control panel end caps. Slide the control panel towards the front of the washer and lift it up and hinge it over the rear panel. Disconnect the timer harness plugs from the timer and reverse the procedure to install the new timer.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Karen: if you have to turn the dial in order to select the cycle, the timer consists of two shafts and the shaft the timer knob threads onto is slipping within the cam inside the timer. The timer will need to be replaced. Since the timer shaft is turning, you will need to access the back of the timer and try to hold the metal part of the shaft from rotating when turning the timer knob counter clockwise. You may need to call technician to remove and replace the timer. Also, look on the back of the timer and see if there are any specific instructions on removing the knob. I know some timer knobs will not unthread but pulls off instead but according to the model number your timer knob should thread off.

Q:

Won't advance to next cycle

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom it sounds like the lid switch is broken or faulty or the actuator is broken. If the lid switch is broken or faulty the washer will not operate in order to drain and spin.

In order to access and replace the lid switch will require removing the washer cabinet from the base. I will provide a YouTube video showing how to remove the cabinet. The video will not cover disconnecting the dispenser hoses; however it will show how to remove the cabinet. Once the cabinet has been removed, you will have full access to the lid switch which is mounted under the top. After placing the console in the service position you will notice a rectangle plastic cover on the left side. Remove the cover and then disconnect the hoses that are connected to the cabinet/dispensers and then you can remove the cabinet.

I added a YouTube video showing how to remove the cabinet in order to access the lid switch under the top.

The lid switch #279347 for Kenmore washer model 110.82891120 can be purchased from Sears Parts Direct.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
