Sears Kenmore HD80 Series Washer Skipping Rinse Cycle
« on: December 07, 2008, 03:52:12 PM »

I currently have a Sears Kenmore Model 110.82781100 HD80 Washer.  The symptoms I have are that it skips the rinse cycle; i.e., during the rinse and spin cycle, the washer pulses on for about 5 seconds, and then shuts off.  There is no water pumping or draining out of the basin.

Based on my Sears Repair Manual, I am trying to remove the timer assembly, but I am unable to correctly remove the timer dial/indicator.  I pushed in the Timer Knob, then turned counter clockwise to remove (I have the new design threaded Timer Knob).  There is a plastic Timer Ring and the dial/indicator still remaining. The dial/indicator has 3 tabs around the inner circumference.   I could not find any photos or steps that shows how the dial should be removed.

That might be one of them kind that needs you to pull a lever out the back of the timer a tad so the knob will come right off. If the timer has a plastic housing then you need to pull out the rod a quarter inch and that will let the knob come off.

It just pulls straight off with a little force or wedge a scraper under it and work it loose.
