Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
The washer will not go through the rinse cycle. For a time when it would stop I was able to firmly tap the top of the washer and it would continue. Now it just stops. I am able to turn the knob forward to just past the rinse indication and it will start again for 2 minutes, but then stop and not go on to any other cycles. I drained the tub and it did not continue to spin. Any solutions
Yeah...check your lid switch. This is a very common description of a lid switch malfunction. In fact hitting the washer, or slamming the lid will make the problem progressively worse. The lid switch is located in the right hand side under the cabinet. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the right side of the wash tub opening. Make sure the lid strike is still on the lid and intact, first, then check the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place (two screws along the tub rim on the right hand side). Often all that is required is to tighten up the mounting screws and this will realign the lid switch where it can be properly activated by the lid strike. If the lid switch is broken, you can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading for item number 11 (part number 3949238). If you do not wish to order online, take the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part that most carry. The following link explains how to replace the switch:
