Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Not spinning after wash cycle

The machine (a Kenmore 90) does agitate, but when it reaches the cycles following wash, it stops. I am having difficulty opening the top to look underneath for the lid safety switch. I do not see the plastic piece, nor do I hear a click when I open or close the lid.

    Kenmore Series 90 washing machine, won't start cycle

    First, see the Sears Parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.26912691&pathTaken=partSearch

    Next, see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers:$FILE/L-55.pdf

    I hate to say it but it sounds like a Timer problem.

    I'd use the troubleshooting section of the Service Manual and the timer testing procedures to confirm the problem.

    Note that there are two types of timers with different procedures to remove them.

    Also see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer and other controls.
