Kenmore Series 80 washer won't drain

Our washer won't drain. There is a little triangular opening on the right of the washer. Using a butter knife, if we push down in that little opening, the water will drain. The washer goes through all the cycles fine, just will not drain. Nosing around lead us to find these two clips (or one held together by a screw) that appears to be missing a screw. I don't know what this part is called (is this the lid switch??) so we can't order it. Does anyone know what this part is called and is it difficult to repair? Model #:110.29852991
Thanks!
(Hope someone can anwser....starting to stink around here!!!)

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.

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.

How do I replace the lid switch on kenmore 80 series?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. Before you start UNPLUG the washer. There are 2 ways to open the top of the machine to gain access to the lid switch. The easy way is to grasp the top inside the top of the wash tub with the lid open pulling hard toward your waist and up. It usually opens right up. Some of them can be stubborn and you have to use a putty knife to release the spring tabs located about 4 inches from each top corner in the space between the cabinet base and the top panel. Press in on the tabs one at a time with the putty knife and pull up. The top will open. Then it is a matter of removing the mounting screws and connecting the new switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
