Question about Washing Machines
My kenmore 70 Series washer machine works okay until it is time to spin. I have to reopen the lid and close it for it to kick the spin cycle on. Can this be the lid control malfunciting.
By lifting the lid you are performing the job of the timer. In your unit you have a neutral drain transmission and the timer is programmed to end the washing cycle by stopping the motor. When it starts back up, it reverses and the transmission is in the neutral state. The water drains and after about 3-4 minutes, the timer is suppose to disconnect power to the motor thus stopping the transmission inducing the transmission to shift into spin. When it starts back up, it spins. So when you lift the lid, you pause the motor and the transmission shifts. Close it and it spins. Replace the timer and you will be fine. If I can help further.....
