Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hello, i have a top load Kenmore Washer that has stopped draining, when you turn it on it will fill the water and sgitate but does not spin or drain. the model details are as follows: Model number 20642 2 speed motor with three speed combination. The macgine seems to run even when the lid is open which kind of points to a faulty lid switch. But I am not sure. I also want to know if I can replace the lid swicth myself, how do I get to the lid switch? Thank you, Sayeed.

Yep - your lid switch is faulty.
You have to remove the outer shell to access the switch.

Kenmore topload washing machine that wont switch to drain


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.

Then, see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Normally, this would appear to be a Lid Switch or Neutral Drain problem BUT since it is re-filling , it sounds like a Timer problem.

See the Service Manual for how to test / replace the timer.

Kenmore will not agitate


The timer is the most common problem. Call any appliance parts store and tell them the model number and ask for price for new timer. Also call sears appliance parts and get price. But a new timer and install it.
