Kenmore elite top loader electric washer

My washer fills with water but does not begin to wash. Sometimes if I pick up lid and shut it hard it clicks and begins to wash. But now that doesn't even work. Any suggestions?

You have poor contact with the left lid hinge and the lid switch.1st open the lid and check the 2 phillips head screws on the left side of the hinge.if they are loose tighten them and try mach.if the screws are tight,the lid switch might need to be replaced or adjusted.there will be 1 screw in each corner of the back of the console facing down.remove and flip console up,if there are no screws,take a putty knife and slide under front left and right corner of console and flip console up.the lid switch will be on left.if it is not broken out of socket,adjust hinge bar underneath switch by removing switch and bending silver bar up SLIGHTLY

I have a top loader washing machine with a filling problem. don't think its hoses or valves I think its electrical in the control panel. after the machine filled, I opened the lid to switch the water


most washers will stop what ever there doing (filling) if you open the lid this is a std safety feature . and sometimes this same switch malfunctions and gives a false indication of a door open

Kenmore Elite Washer will not fill wash basket with water.


It's either a water supply issue or an electrical supply issue..
If it's a water supply issue, check the hose screens at the inlet hoses. Shut the water off to the machine, and take the hoses loose at the faucets. Take the screens that are in the hose end out and clean them, then reinstall.
If it's an electrical issue, you won't get any response from the machine when you start it.. not sure if this is your case, but the first place is to check the circuit breaker and reset if needed. Then check the lid switch operation. This switch will keep water from flowing if it's not properly operating. Sometimes the lid on a washer can get slightly bent by too much weight be placed on the machine. Open and close the lid and listen for a positive "click" from the micro switch.
Those are good things to check for a start...let us know if you still have a problem with your kenmore.

I have a Kenmore Elite top loader that does not agitate after its filled with water and the lid is shut. I've tried all speeds.


I had the same problem with my Kenmoore and had to replace the agitator...ordered the part through Sears. Wasn't hard to fix, just needed to wait for the shipment.

Kenmore 22956 top loader quit running after agite cycle


If the timer cycles your lid switch is ok.
most likely: motor Switch (on Motor), condenser next to motor, motor itself, or wiring going from the time to the switch,

It is probably cost efficient to replace the unit rather than trowing parts at it .
