That would be your lid switch that has went bad.  Remove the console caps, then remove the two screws that hold it down (sometimes these screws are in the rear of the console)  Rotate the console out towards you gently, then fold it up and over the top of the unit.  You see 2 gold colored hold down clamps on top, and either side of the unit.  You will also see a wire and disconnect going down through the cabinet on your right hand side.  Disconnect these wires (be sure unit is unplugged) and rotate the whole cabinet towards you.  You remove the two screws that hold the switch in place and a 5/16" screw underneith that holds the ground wire.  Unclip the connector from the rear top of the cabinet and remove the switch.  Be sure to bring your whole model number 110.************** when you get the new part, there are two of these, and they look the same except the wire ends are different.  Good luck    Jim

SOURCE: KENMORE 110 -LETS WATER IN..DOES NOT SPIN

Hello Sylvia,

You said,
HELLO...I HAVE A KENMORE 110 WASHER, LETS WATER IN BUT DOES NOT SPIN. PLEASE HELP. SYLVIA



It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

* The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin.
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 washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


* The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small,
relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


* A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts.
If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


* The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed.
As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all.
If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified
appliance repair technician.


* The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor.
For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other.
It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other.
If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


* The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool®
have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective,
the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem,
you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


* The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized.
These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem,
you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety,
washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed.
The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up."

Thank You

Kenmore front loader. stopped at rinse. First ck to see if you washer works at different settings if so its very possible its your timmer or what called the wig wag or solonoid this switches the machine to spin & rinse. A basic service call should resolve your problem.

Rubbing and Clicking Noise in Dryer.


It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. 

A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth  is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth

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!
