take your outlet pipe and place into a bucket so that it is low to the ground if water comes out then it could be that your pump is faulty when the water has all drained away the pressure switch will reset itself and the lid will now open if no water comes out un-clamp your outlet pipe from your pump if then water comes out then your pipe will be blocked m8

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer will agitate but not spin

You have a bad clutch/brake assembly.
It is attached to the transmission shaft. It takes a little work, but you could replace it yourself.

The door of the Kenmore Elite 4.3 cu. ft. Front Load Steam Washer won't open


Ouch. Well I believe cll is child lid lock or something to that effect is engaged. You will have to find something to manually turn the locking gear or if you have a manual figure out the watts/amps and use some type of power adapter similar to that to jump the lid lock to open. Turn it off and back on and it should begin working again. But either the door lock, the door close sensor, or the main board are faulty.

Kenmore top loading washing machine


check the outlet to make sure that power is getting to the unit. This can easily be done by plugging in a lamp or some small appliance. If you have power at the outlet, it is most likely the lid switch.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. Unless you are familiar with working inside the housing I would call a technician.

Washer stopped after filling, small load


I would check and make sure the lid is not bent or bowed. If the middle part of the lid is too far down when closed, the machine thinks it's open and wont run an agitate or spin. If it is bent, just bend it back for a quick fix.
