Question about Washing Machines

Kenmore washer 80 series start cycle, agitates, but won't drain. Lid switch checked good and I by-passed it to confirm. If I manually pump the water out the spin cycle starts

Runs a partial cycle, fills, agitates, but won't drain. The cycle continues and water is added during what should be the spin cycle. Lid switch checked good and I by-passed it to confirm. If I manually pump the water out, using a cordless drill to drive the pump, the spin cycle starts. What else could cause this problem?

    All it can be is a timer issue. There is nothing else it could possibly be. Here is the timer to order.http://bit.ly/R96xYa

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series washer doesn't stop filling up with water

Almost went and bought a switch until I widened by search for "kenmore washer 80 series overflow" and came up with this:

Turns out that a couple weeks ago, I had a really unbalanced load that probably shook off the tubing. Anyhow, saved me a trip to the supply store AND cost. Thanks to the original poster!

If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#
Part # AP3096209

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

The following are the reasons for the drum not spinning :-
* Test the lid switch
* Test the timer control
* Test the centrifugal switch
* Test the water level switch
* Inspect the motor coupler
* Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
* Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
* Test the motor
* Inspect the pulley
* Test the transmission


In the case of loud noises in the machine, the drum bearings might have been damaged and might need a replacement. Also do check the leveling of the machine. Good luck.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

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.

My kenmore 80 series washer will not agitate. fills, drains, &spins great. coopler motor is good


inspect the lid to make sure it is closing properly. If the lid switch does not click into place correctly, your washing machine will not start. If the lid is simply bent, you should be able to bend it back into the correct shape to allow the switch to work. Otherwise, remove and replace the lid switch according to the manufacturer's instructions. move from wall, use a flash light and see if motor is running or it is a broken belt. check the lid switch first ! the easy way to check it is to open lid. hold down switch with a screw driver or simillar object. and see if it starts to agitate. if it does its the switch.

80 series model 23822100 will agitate but won't


If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain, this is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. 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. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

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

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

NOTE: There is no need to drain the washer to repair the lid switch. However, if you need to drain the washer to avoid having stagnant water in the tub, you can by-pass the lid switch. Use the steps provided to access the lid swtich. Unplug the switch and remove it from the washer. With the switch in your hand, cut the connector plug off leaving about two inches of wire. Cut the center conductor (green wire) off flush with the plug. Take the two black wires and crimp them together and insulate with some electrical tape, or use a wire lug. You now have made yourself a by-pass plug. Plug this back into the timer plug and you have now by-passed the lid switch.

NOTE: This is to only be used as a TEMPORARY means of operating the washer and not as a permanent fix. The lid switch is installed as a safety feature to stop the washer motion when the lid is opened. Without it, you will not be able to stop the washer unless you push the timer knob in. Make sure you replace the lid switch.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore washing machine 80 Series 110 20802 990 Will not agitate or spin"


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.
