Re: kenmore elite canyon capacity washer

You are in bad shape. Your sensor that supposed to close your cover might be broken or malfunction. I just had my problem last week and i very pissed. This will cost you almost the same price as you buy a new machine. $59 for sears technician to diagnose your machine, $156 ht got labor charge and $230 dollar for that bad part. The same machine cost around $660 dollar at the sear store right now. I am trying to fix it myself if I can.

Check out the lid switch ... move it up and down slowing and see if you can hear the lid switch clicking.. lid may not be hitting just right or something... should also be under warranty

What is the capaity of 2005 Kenmore Elite Washer and Dryer, models 110?

Starting in early 2002, the capacity sizes were changed around a little bit. A normal sized washer now all have the same sized tubs (pretty much) in the 110 series (Whirlpool Manufactured) washers. The capacity is now rated somewhat by the agitator action the washer comes with. Depending on the type of agitator you have, will determine the capacity. King size capacity means you have a pretty good capacity (size wise) than others. You have normal capacity, large capacity, super capacity, king capacity, and I even think they have canyon (yes canyon) capacity. Capacity sizes dont really mean to much though. In order for you clothes to get clean, the must have room in the tub to move. The must be able to float up, then get pulled down by agitator action. That should determine the size of what goes in the washer. Always use same type clothing when doing laundry (i.e. towels with towels, sheets with sheets, etc, this will keep the load balanced better). Watch what you load, comforters are ok (per manufactures ok) but I do not tlike the idea unless its a front loader, and only by itself. Let me know if this helps you out any.
