Washer wont drain

I have a Kenmore 80 series type 111 series # 100 22892 100. It will run but will not drain. The Lid switch has a tooth brush wired to it to keep it out of the water. I suppose it needs a new lid switch from reading other forums where do I find one? Maybe also a wiring harness instead of a toothbrush? It shocked me for the first time yesterday. should I scoop the water out before removing the console?

I FIXED IT! It was the lid switch for some reason the previous owner had wired it to a toothbrush. I took the switch apart and replaced the spring inside which was rusted to hell. Wired the thing back together so the washer always thinks it is on. Four hours... Three twisty ties,,,, no $ ..... SUCCESS! Thanks for the help!

Go to sears web site and enter model number of machine and look for lid switch. The cabinet of the machine needs to be removed to replace this switch. Go to Appliance Guru for details of removing the cabinet

Kenmore washer 80 series stopped draining


So it will agitate and fill but the motor won't run during drain and spin?
If so, the likely cause is a bad lid switch. The paddle that the probe hits when the lid is down moves a small switch. That switch can do two things
1. fail internally. It will look fine outside but it won't close the circuit
2. the screw holes snap and it hangs off the wires, the probe no longer hits the paddle and the switch stays open.
The lid switch is cheap and very easy to repair.

Wont drain or spin


Does it click when closing the lid ? Sometimes , the lid switch arm , will work inserting something into it , but not with the lid closed . Try checking it useing the lid itself . Occasionally , the arm wears to where it has to be pushed farther down to work so the actuator on the lid cannot push it far enough down .if you have to replace the lid switch for it to work properly or bypass the lid switch it needs to be from under the console .do not drop screws in between the tubs

Kenmore 80 series washer, replaced lid switch already, will fill, wash (agitate) but stops before draining and spinning and will not run. Is the timer the next step for replacement? Model: 110.29852991


First check the continuity of the wires in the lid switch and the switch itself. Make a jumper wire to attach to the lid switch connector on the washer cabinet and set it to spin. If still no spin,replace the timer.

Series 80 kenmore washer, agitates but won't drain or spin


Hi, There is a good chance the lid switch is going bad. When in the spin cycle, does the motor run at all? If the motor does notrun, you will need to test the lid switch first.
Please get me a model# so I can look this model up.

Thanks
Vic

You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.
