Kenmore Washer stops working at drain point in cycle


If you have a multi-meter and a wiring diagram, schematic of timer, or know which connectors are which on timer you can check it. Connect one lead of meter to power tab on timer, other to drain cycle tab.

As hardware let you know I am not familiar with this model, apparently timer/selector is marked with symbols instead of being plainly labeled? Can you manually move selector knob along its cycle in short increments? That is, can you start it on rinse then turn knob to end of rinse cycle?
Since you can drain tub by lowering hose, let it fill on low level rinse and see what happens. Or try it on rinse cycle with water off.

I just want to follow up on the results of this problem. I decided not to get into testing my original timer as I am not confident enough in my skills to make an accurate diagnosis (but thanks for the follow up info notmrjohn).

I went ahead and bought another used timer for $32. The other seller refunded my money on the other one that was already broken without me even having to return it so that saved me some hassle. I installed the next one I bought last weekend and the washer is back in action!!

So, hardwareman was right on with the timer being the problem. Tons of thanks to all for your help!!

Ta Da! Thanx for follow up. Often a bunch of folks offer advice, we never hear if any of it helped. Or if it even made problem worse. And when we never hear another word, hardware worries that somebody followed my advice and killed themself.

That is too funny! Yes, I think this forum works much better when people follow up to conclusion on the problems so that others who read can maybe benefit if they have a similar problem AND those who are giving advice know how accurate their advice was. Great job guys!
