I've got an older model Kenmore washing machine that has run great
until last week. It is a model 110.82374110 (non-suds). The machine
fills normally, but when agitation starts, the machine is draining the
tub (you can see it start coming out the drain hose as soon as the
agitation starts). This causes agitation to stop after a few seconds
while the water level is restored. Then more agitation/pumping,
stopping, filling, etc.
I examined the underside of the machine and don't see anything
obviously out of place. All the wiring is intact and connected. I see
two 'cam bars' driven by magnetic solenoids. One bar is labeled 'cam,
bar spin' and the other is labeled 'cam, agitator & pump'.
I can't get a view of things during operation. I'm tempted to replace
the magnet assembly (mounts both solenoid electromagnets).
Can anyone point me towards repairing this old friend?
Thanks in advance!
