    I believe this is the problem but cannot be sure. This problem occurred gradually. Washer didn't always start when the lid was shut. Now will not start at all. Is it truly the switch? If so, can you provide a little more detail on how to fix it. Thanks.

There can be many reasons and i will do the best to cover everything that can happen with your washer to cause it from not draining or spinning. I will attempt to cover the basic things that can happen with washing machines.

First thing to check if your washer is not pumping or spinning is to see if the motor is running. If themotor is not runningb>then check the lid switch. When the lid gets slammed it hammers that switch and eventually will bend it or break it completely. Some washers will wash but not spin or pump, others will do nothing. This switch is located under the lid on the edge of the frame around the lid. Often there is a hole that a pin from the lid will go through and push on a lever that is the switch. Check that it is not simply bent, so that it does not trip the switch inside anymore. To change or check the switch the top will need to be raised or the front removed. Getting to it, is often harder then the replacement.

Thank You, Mike Here is also My personal Sight to Help with other problems you might have as well.

Kenmore 110 washer fills and does the wash cycle but wont drain or spin. Totally shuts down after wash cycle. What do I need to replace


sounds as though the lid switch has gone bad, either that or the motor has lost the reverse winding on it.. most likely lid switch tho.
the lid switch is only "seen" by some older kenmore "110" series at the end of the wash cycle, or end of the rinse cycle. it purpose is to keep the unit from spinning if the lid is opened so no one looses an arm, etc.
generally the console on those machines hinges over backward so you can remove the cabinet top and 3 sides as a unit together..
the lid switch is under the machine top and isn't easily accessible without removing the cabinet.

Washer wont spin


WASHER DON'T SPIN

normally if is filled with water an does not spin, check ur door switch may be bad or broken also check the lid make sure the smaill white tab is there too, the switch normally break when someone stands or slamms the lid hard or puts heavy baskets over the lid ,the switch mounting screws base is made out of plastic so is easy for it to split

the lid switch is a safety device that stops the machine while on spin cycle, in case you forgot your wallet u go back to get it stick ur hand in it, and is on spin cycle, as soon as u open the door, the door will deactivate the power tho the washer, and the basket will stop, when not going into spin mode is one of the main reasons

good luck leave some feedback!

My LSQ8243H filled up with water and stopped. The timer doesn't respond in any position. Is there a reset on this model. I've tried using a pen to activate the lid switch. It's full of water right now,...


Check your lid switch. If the washer fills and agitates, but stops at the rinse cycle, or, if the washer fills, then stops and will NOT drain, this is a common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug.

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The part number for the model you have listed is 3949247. The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between these sites, so shop around for the best price.

This is a very simple repair, but if you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You do not need to drain the washer to replace the switch. However, if you still want to drain the washer, you can by-pass the lid switch in the following way:

1. Unplug the washer and open the operator console. (Refer to the link I provided above).

2. With the console open, locate the lid switch plug that is connected to the timer and unplug it.

3. Remove the exterior washer case enough to allow access to the lid switch under the top panel.

4. Remove the lid switch.

5. With the lid switch in your hand, cut the connector plug off the end, leaving about two inches of wire.

6. Cut the green wire (center wire) flush and take the two remaining wires (black) and splice together. Use a wire lug or electrical tape to shield. You have now made yourself a by-pass plug.

7. Take this by-pass plug and plug it back into the timer. The lid switch is now by-passed.

8. Reinstall cabinet and console.

CAUTION: The lid switch is a designed safety feature that prevents the wash tub from turning with the lid open. With the switch by-passed, this creates a hazard to the consumer. This is NOT to be considered a permanent fix. Use as a temporary means to drain the washer and use while awaiting replacement parts. Since the washer will not shut off with the lid open, use the timer to stop the washer BEFORE opening the washer lid.

Kenmore 80 Series washer won't agitate/spin


Check out the video at the link that I'm attaching and see if it leads you in the right direction toward changing the lid switch. The switch should be checked for loose/corroded electrical connections and checked for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. If bad it will have to be replaced, Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helps. Best wishes.

Hi,
This is most certainly caused by a faulty micro switch on the lid. Have the switch checked out and replaced if need be.
