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

You said,
Last night you filled the washer with a comforter and pillow cases! It was working fine and then you lifted the lid. Now it wont start back. Any ideas. It is full of water and had already started agitating.

Check the breaker
Could the power be out due to an electrical storm while you were sleeping.
If not!

Try pulling the plug out for 5 minutes or turning the breaker off if you can't reach the plug.
Then try to start. this should have reset the system.


Some Questions to check
• 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 manufactures directions. If you have very soft water,
you might need to use less detergent.

let me know how you do and that it works.
Huuum
please remember to leave a rating when your finished.

I have a Kenmore 700 series washer and it fills with water then stops. It's NOT my lid switch. I have tried to find someone with the same washer and same problem and can't find nothing. Can someone please...


If you are sure its not the lid switch, then next would be the water level switch. Once the machine fills, it should switch an internal set of contacts to make the washer run. Last and worst case scenario would be a dead motor.

Kenmore Elite Oasis is making a loud banging noise during spin cycle. Also just noticed a small amount of water under the washer. All other cycles appear to be working fine.


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

My washing machine model 110.24642300 was washing last night and just stopped after filling half way. what do I need to do


Hi,
Lid switch
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. 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 washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. 

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Good luck...

Hi, thanks for using the FixYa service. Your lid switch is probably broken. Make sure you can hear it click when you open and close the lid. It it is a very common problem on that model. Probably has nothing to do with the pillows, that was just the last load in the machine before the common part failure. Get me the exact model number and I can get you the replacement part number.

Kenmore washer just stopped


This is a typical symptom of a defective or loose lid switch. If you open and close the washer lid, you should hear a clicking noise as the lid switch activates. The lid switch is usually located on the right-hand side under the washer casing rim. It is activated through a small slot, by a plastic piece on the lid called a lid strike. There are two mounting screws adjacent to the slot that hold the lid switch in place. Sometimes the screws come loose, or the lid strike breaks off, causing the switch not to activate. Or..the switch simply fails over periodic use. This results in the symptoms you describe. The washer fills, but fails to spin or drain. This is a simple repair that you can accomplish yourself. For step-by-step instructions, please refer to the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If you require assistance in locating replacment parts and/or have further questions, please post back with your complete model number (located aorund the tub rim), along with your comments. That way I can assure the accuracy of any part numbers.

NOTE: Use care not to slam the washer lid. This can also cause premature failure of the lid switch components.

Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, replace lid switch. If this washer has a hidden lid switch, check the lid hinge screws and make sure they are screwed in tight.
