Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin

Tried to wash a load last night - wash cycle works fine, but when I went to switch the laundry, the clothes were sitting in the water and the machine stopped after the wash cycle and would not rinse or spin. Any ideas??

I really hate to have Sears come out and drop a small fortune on this repair.

    Thank you! The model number is 23812100. Moving the timer manually does nothing.



    From reading other similar problems here, sounds like it's the lid switch to me. I just wish it was easier to fix.

    How difficult is it to change the lid switch? I thought I saw some instructions how to do this and it requires disassembling the majority of the machine. Is that right?



    Can you tell me where I can buy the lid switch?

Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.

    You have a bad lid switch.

    You can change it yourself.

    Sears or any appliance parts house in your city has the switch.

    Remove 2 phillips screws on the right and left corners of the control panel.

    Lift the control panel to the rear of the machine.

    Snap out 2 metal clips holding the cabinet to the rear of the machine.

    Unplug the wire harness connector to the lid switch.

    Remove the cabinet by pulling it forward.

    Remove the old lid switch and install the new one inside the cabinet.

    Reverse the above order to re-install the cabinet.

    Make sure the bottom front of the cabinet goes UNDER the front chassis frame.

Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle


Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

Hope this helps.

The rinse cycle does not work, but everything else does


I don't know if the problem is solved but last night we ran the washer without any clothes in it and everything seemed to work fine. My wife was able to run a load of laundry and it seemed to work. I hope it was just too much clothes the first time it stopped or the washer was just acting up. Either way, I had nothing to do with the fix. Sorry I couldn't be any more help. Thank you for the link to assistance plan, it might come in handy in the future.

Thanks again,

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.
