My wife and I recently purchased this Kenmore 25102 from Sears. I washed my work clothes today, and the lid did not unlock at the end of the cycle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: kenmore elite oasis, lid-lock mechanism

mk, there is two ways to work around the lid. The lid lock works by magnet. If you have a large magnet laying around you can fool the mechanism and run the washer without it locking. You will have to find the spot near the center front and experiment until you get the right spot. The second way is to lift the whole top assy. About 3 or 4 inches in from each end where the top seperates from the bottom there will be a clip that you can push in on and lift the whole top. Now these clips are real strong so you need a good putty knife. Pull up on the top as you are pushing in. This way you can add your stuff while doing a normal wash. The codes are for diagnosis, testing different functions of the machine, it wouldn't do you any good for what you are trying to do. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Kenmore series 70 washer won't stop agitating when lid Is lifted.

I have a Series 80 and when I lift the lid it does not stop aggitating when in wash mode. When I lift the lid it does stop spinning when in rinse mode. As designed.

To stop wash-mode aggitation at lid-lift, using the existing lid switch and other electrical components, is not easy and not recommended. I can think of a way to do it (triple-pole lid switch) but I will not detail the idea .. for safety concerns.

To stop aggitation, simply use the main settings dial control. You'll save money and possibly prevent a fire hazard!

SOURCE: kenmore washing machine didn't spin @ end of cycle

If you tried a different cycle and it worked this means that the timer is probably bad on the main cycle that you use. If the machine does not spin on all cycles, then please check out the LID SWITCH.

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 tub spins excessively clockwise during wash cycle.

Improperly installed thrust bearing kit. Too many washers cause the basket to spin during agitation.

Start the washer. Once it begins agitating raise the lid and observe the tub.
The agitator should be going back and forth.
The tub should be stationary.
If he tub is moving also,you have a bad transmission.
You may have to manually close the lid switch to watch this process with the lid open.

I have a Kenmore Oasis washing machine. I had to have Sears come last week to replace the computer in it. On Saturday while a load was washing the machine stopped but the lid is stuck locked. I have tried...


On this washer, the dl code indicates a failed lid lock mechanism. Pressing pause/cancel should reset the controls.

You may have to unplug the unit for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power.

If that doesn't work, the only other solution would be to replace the door lock assembly.

Sears Kenmore 80 series will not rinse or drain


A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

Take note of your symptoms:

1. Washer fills, may or may not agitate, will not advance to the rinse cycle, and will NOT drain - lid switch.

2. Washer fills, does NOT agitate or spin, but WILL drain - motor coupling.

If you still have questions, please let me know. If the suggestions I have listed do not match your washer symptoms, please post back and elaborate more on what the washer is/is not doing. That way I can provide you with better assistance. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin


Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.
