Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't go into Spin mode

I think it was out of balance with a heavy laod when it went into a spin and now it won't drain or spin. When I pull the dial to start it with the door closed or open it makes the sound of the motor working but won't spin. Is there a 'reset button'?. I have looked but not seen one. It is a Kenmore Series 70 top load model # 20712 990. The only Kenmore on the FixYa drop-down menu that was close to mine was the 22422 so I selected that.

Thanks for your help.

That is perfect, hey does it agitate but won't spin? If it hums and you get no action I would suspect a motor. The best case is a jammed pump, the rest is spendy on parts here is a source for you.

Mvwx600xw0 wont drain and spin


The out of balance is why it does not spin. You can manually stop the machine, and spin the basket. Then move the clothes until it is balanced. Then start it again on rinse & spin or drain & spin as appropriate. When you get tired of this, try below.

Or you can change the "Soil Level" to heavy or very heavy". This increases the water level and helps it balance the load.

My whirlpool Duet 9750 takes a long time to spin out and has a difficult time trying to balance


I owned a Whirlpool Duet and had spin/balance problems when I washed heavy and light items together. During a deep freeze my drain hose froze. Did everything I could think of until I ran hot water through washer. It took awhile to thaw. If your floor is weak, you will have a lot of vibration and walking. Hope this helps.

Washer will not spin


There is a safety switch on the lid ... when it went out of balance perhaps the adjustment changed or it got damaged (loose wire etc.) BE SURE TO PULL THE PLUG BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle


if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.

Stopped operating in the spin cycle


With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
