Kenmore 110-91564100 Top Load Washer Problem

Had this washer since 1995 & operated without problem. Problem has developed suddenly as follows: 1) Very slight leak ( maybe 4 oz ), seems to be from rear of machine, when filling on wash cycle. 2) When agitating, the tub runs slightly off center, accompanied by a thumping sound and slight visible deflection of the front cabinet panel. 3)When wash cycle drains, a substantial leak ( more than a quart )occurs beneath machine. Most water pumps out the drain hose. No noise on spin. 4) Rinse cycle fills tub, but again some leakage beneath machine, perhaps a quart. I'm guessing some sort of bearing / seal problem. Is it worth fixing ? Any ideas will be appreciated ? Thanks Much !

Re: Kenmore 110-91564100 Top Load Washer Problem

Sounds like my 91 Geo Merto LOL! Anywho when it washes the pump spins one way and water is basically thrown back into the tub, then when on spin it spins in the opposite direction and if there is a hose leak past the pump or the pump itself leaks it will come out of the drain system. As for the thump, check under the unit for anything that shouldnt be under there getting caught up in the mechanics. Let us know :-)

Hi - how do I test my lid switch? I have what is apparently a fairly common problem with my Kenmore 90 Plus Series washer (which we bought new in 1998). Doesn't properly spin the clothes dry at the end,...

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.$FILE/L-55.pdf

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.

You won't get fried.....

Just make sure to disconnect the power to the washer before opening the console.

Plug the short wire in and then plug the washer in.

If it is the switch, follow the illustrations for how to remove the cabinet. You should be able to see where the switch mounts and be able to replace it yourself.

Kenmore 27841 Top Load Washer has developed a water leak

Hi, Check the pump. Tip the washer back after the load finishes and see if the pump is dripping. The pump is located on the front side of the motor. If the leek seem to be in the front center of the washer, it is probably the pump. I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
