Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Spin cycle does not work; I can open lid and push

I have a Kenmore Series 90 Washer, Large Capacity, Model 110-24922202, which works fine, but Spin cycle does not work; I don't believe it has anything to do with the lid switch, because I can open lid and push in lid switch with a screwdriver, and it still will not spin -- unless I manually spin the drum, and it then ''catches'' on its own and completes the spin cycle. I also think water is sitting in the bottom part of the machine. Please help!

There is likely a problem with the clutch, or transmission, or both. A quick check would be to LEAN (don't lay the machine on it's back) the washer back, and check for oil spray on the inside of the cabinet walls, or just a puddle of oil underneath. If there is oil, the transmission will need replaced, along with the clutch. When the oil leaks out, it tends to get into the clutch band and cause slipping, (clutch may look brown from heat, should be shiny) which is why you have to give it a boost with your hand. hope that helps some.

Kenmore 90 Series - Heavy Duty Super Capacity Washer - Washes fine but it's getting stuck at the point when it's supposed to drain & spin before the rinse cycle.


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:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

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.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$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 and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

Series 90 with loud buzzing/grinding noise, won't spin


It could have gone out of balance. See if the drum looks off center and center it if necessary. Turn it off and back on to reset the switch. If that doesn't work, try pressing on the lid either 2/3 of the way back on the right or all the way back on the left (depends on the model -- try both) and see if it starts. If it does, I would suspect the lid switch.

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

Washer will wash and drain but not spin


Sounds like the lid switch is not working.It is a safety feature to prevent the washer from spinning if the lid is open.If you look a the lid,you will see a small point that sticks out,The switch is locate under the rim,right where that point would contact with lid closed.
