SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Model 110 washing machine will not stope the agitate cycle

If the washer fills but does not agitate or spin, this is usually a symptom of a bad lid switch. The switch will either be located on the right hand side of the washer tub opening, or in the rear on the left hand side under the console. If you have a right hand model, examine the lid and make sure the plunger that activates the switch when it is closed is still intact. The plunger is a plastic piece that is physically mounted on the lid. Sometimes they break off. If the plunger is intact, try taking a small object (like a screwdriver or popsicle stick and push down on the lid switch contact while the lid is open and the timer knob started. You should hear a distinctive "click" when you push on the switch and the washer will agitate. Sometimes the switch can become loose and no longer make good contact. If this is the case, simply tighten the two mounting screws on the tub opening. If the switch relay is not clicking you may need to replace it. The part runs about $35.

If you have the left hand style switch that is enclosed under the console, the contacts are closed by a small metal bar on the back of the lid. Sometimes this bar becomes bent or loose. Open and close the lid and listen for a distinctive "click". If you don't hear anything, you may need to adjust the metal bar, or replace the switch. This style of switch tends to cost a bit more.

If you can provide me with your model number (located under the wash lid along the tub opening), I can research the part number for you and let you know where you can get it and give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. This is a simple repair job that the average consumer can perform with simple instructions and a few household tools. First, determine if this is the cause of your problem. Post back with comments and let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: washer fills with water then stops, won't agitate or spin

There are two possible causes. The most likely cause is the lid switch, which is supposed to keep you from sticking your hand into the moving basket. On many washers this only keeps the machine from spinning, but on other models it prevents agitating as well. The other possibility is the water level switch, but that usually causes no filling or overfilling if it's bad.

Both parts are available from Sears (www.searspartsdirect.com) and many other online sources. (I normally use the Sears site to find a part number if I don't already know it, then search for that number on Google. It's a great way to find good prices on more costly parts.) There are also a number of sites with detailed information about how to remove the cabinet to get at the parts if you want to try doing it yourself. Replacing these parts is pretty simple if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some mechanical ability.

If you'd rather have someone else repair the machine, this would normally be about a 1 hour plus parts charge for an appliance technician. It isn't time for a new washer yet.

SOURCE: Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

if it agitates and pumps out water it is not the lid switch.  you most probably have a bad brake/clutch mechanism.  the fact that it spins tells me the transmission is good

No, this is probably a direct drive that has a faulty plastic coupling from motor to transmission. Go to:

Kenmore elite washer


Assuming you have a top loader, because a front loader does not have an agitator, the spindle that holds the agitator securely in place has worn down to the poing that it won't turn. They are usually made of rubber and has grooves in it and fits into a the agitator. The grooves are worn out. Replace them from an appliance store and you should be in good shape.
