    My Kenmore washer will agitate and rinse, but will not spin no matter what setting I have the timer on. The timer goes through all the cycles and I hear the motor running during the spin cycle but the clothes will not spin. Occasionally I manually start the spinning by hand and it successfully takes off from there. I repeatedly tested the lid switch and took the shell off and visually inspected the motor and internal parts while its running and everything looks OK.
    I hope its an easy fix like another switch or a timer.

    I found that it will spin if I put a screwdriver in against the lid 'contact' switch. Then the contact switch fell off - question - how do I raise the top of the washing machine so I can replace the switch?

Hello jammob
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, your washer will not spin ,but will wash and rinse but not spin

WASHER WON'T SPIN

• Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 96 in. (244 cm) above the floor? See the
Installation Instructions for proper installation of drain hose.
• Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
• Is there excessive sudsing? Always measure detergent.
Follow manufactureCs directions. If you have very soft water,
you might need to use less detergent.

If none of the above resolves the problem try this!

How old is the range?
And the model number?

Threat it like an error code.
This can reset the system.
pull the plug out to cut the power for 5 minutes. (If you can not reach the plug turn the breaker off).
Then restart the washer.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not remedy the problem, then the lid switch could be bad.
Let me know how it works out.
Please remember to leave arating when you are finished
Thank you
Huuum

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!
