Your "cycle selection switch" is probably the timer motor. If tapping it lightlly gets it going again it will probably need replaced. It could be a loose connection but I would need to know the model number to tell how to get into the inside of the control panel to look. If you do get adventurous, be sure to unplug the washer before taking the panel apart.

Replace the washer timer control, that is what is behind the control knob.

My Kenmore HE2t washer is stopping about 8 minutes into the cycle (any wash cycle)..completely turns off. I can run rinse and spin then and it completes the cycle. No error codes when it turns off. W


htc sensor isnt working i would recon
perhaps the element isnt getting power
did it trip your circuit breaker
some times the htc fails
all you get is machine stop because the heater is not detected

if it spins rinses and empties in a timely manner
then all thats left is the heater system

I am washing clothes in a borrowed Kenmore washer. It's probably 10 years old. It stops short of completing the Rinse cycle and never makes it to the Spin cycle. The bowl will start filling up w/ water,...


This is a typical problem with the "lid switch" on the washer. The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Kenmore washing machine model 110 wash cycle stops


DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

Will not complete a wash cycle or rinse cycle, stops short


I think it maybe your lid switch. If the lid switch is out it will not spin and sometimes spin or drain. can you give me a model number so that I can further assist you?

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
