My Kenmore has developed a very specific problem.

At end of rinse, when draining, the basket is supposed to spin slowly, then once drained, at high speed it throws water on clothes for spin cycle.

Only problem is that during drain, basket does not spin slowly. Once high speed spin starts, all is fine; spins and squirts water as usual.

It can be kick started at the failure point by cycling lid switch, you can hear tranny kick in and runs fine. Even if you don't do this, it will spin fine once it gets to the high speed portion of the show.

It's only during the slow speed spin during drain that it fails to spin unless you cycle lid switch.

Have I provided enough clues for an accurate diagnosis.In return, I will donate to beer fund, and answer all astronomy questions:D

Ah, the problematic neutral drain feature. This will be either a bad neutral drain gear set in the transmission or the timer is failing to do the pause necessary for the transmission to shift gears.

Typically, the washer is supposed to drain while the tub is stationary, hence the neutral drain. Then, the timer does a pause and this lets the transmission shift into drive so when the time starts running the motor again, the tub starts spinning.

So what you are saying it's doing what it's supposed to?

This is what happens, and what you are saying is correct?

Drain should occur with no spin; then a pause; then a transmission shift into spin (with motor not running) ; then start motor, basket starts spinning, then while spinning the water spurts.

That is the correct plan?

I hate to ask, but is there any written documentation of the wash cycle so I can prove to the S.O that this is the correct sequence? Otherwise, I'll be fighting her until global cooling comes to ummm, down there.

Thanx very much, Wayne

If it is doing what you described then yes, it is working as designed. There is no "low speed drain" -  after agitation the motor reverses and the transmission shifts to neutral (the pump is mounted to the motor so it will pump regardless) - the pause after drain is needed to shift the transmission into spin. The written documentation is the timer chart on the wiring diagram (located under the control console), it shows the pause after drain and before spin.

And for what it is worth here is the part inside the gearcase that makes this work http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=2911

Thanks, I will look at the chart under the console to see if I can convince her that this is normal.

 

Appreciate all the comments.

Any astronomy questions?:P
