Q:

Kenmore Washer Won't Spin

A:

Hi Adrienne,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your washer.

The first thing I recommend checking is the drain pump. You need to make sure the drain pump and drain hoses are not blocked or clogged. Here is a video that will show you how to gain access to the drain pump; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.

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 .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Kenmore dryer (11070932990) not heating

A:

Hi Tabish,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

From your description, if the igniter glows and then cycles off to initiate the ignition process, then you likely have failed gas valve coils (part number 279834). Here is a video that will demonstrate gaining access to and replacing the coils; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. This video is for demonstration purposes only. This dryer may not look exactly like yours, but the procedure is basically the same. The image below explains the basic operation of the gas valve assembly. NOTE: Your dryer uses a thermistor and heater relay to apply voltage to the heater circuit instead of a thermostat but the rest of the operation is the same. If it is apparent that you have failed gas valve coils, you can unplug the dryer and replace both of them with the kit listed above.

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

Q:

The buzzer on my dry will not go off and the dryer will not work, after installing my new timer.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You did not include the model number of your Whirlpool dryer so I must base my answer and wiring diagram from the part number of the timer. This timer is used on over 100 different model dryers.

Since I do not know if it's a gas or electric dryer I added both wiring diagrams for the timer in the image below. Check the timer wiring per the wiring diagram and you will likely find it mis-wired. If you have it wired up correctly, provide the model number and additional details for further assistance. What was the reason for replacing the timer?
