Question about Washing Machines
Kenmore Solid State 110-82294500 Limited Edition Series belt drive Washing Machine. Purchased around 1986. The Limited Edition has a solid state control panel. I Have checked the lid switch and I think it is okay - when I put the two wires together the tub still does not spin. Can only access workings by the back lower panel or by tipping the washer over. Washer does not spin and completely empty of water. Please help!

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:
There's an error code on the digital display
It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
The water temperature is incorrect
Hope this may 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.

The following link explains how to replace one:
If the switch DOES require replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all three for the best price. If you still need assistance, please contact me and let me know. If my diagnosis is not correct, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can assist you further. If your washer is not configured this way, or if you still have questions, please let me know.

There is a fusable link that is known to blow. The replacement is available. Open the front access panel, Remove the tape from the wires that are taped together near the top of the wiring harness,about 3/4 of the way up. You will see a wire that is covered with shrink wrap (White with Red stripe I think) Cut it out, check for open circuit with an ohm meter. If it is open, (no continuity) Replace it. I used a regular piece of wire as a jumper for testing till I got the new fuse. The fuse kit I got comes with 2 of these fusable links. One is for a spare.
