There is a good chance the lid switch is bad. The model number is usually under the lid hen you open the lid check at the back of the opening when the water injector is.

It sounds like the lid switch. If it ws the coupler the water would drain. Check to see if the lid switch is clicking when you put the lid down. replace the lid switch. You have a great washer. Fairly cheap fix.

SOURCE: Why My Kenmore 70 Series Washer Won't Drain Or Spin?

You need to replace the lid switch. This is located under the case. you have to take the case off to change this part. This is done by taking the 2 screws out of the front of the control panel. Then flip the panel back and remove the 2 brass clips that hold on the case. Then you can remove the whole washer case to get acces to the lid switch. This is a very common problem and an easy problem to fix.

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.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

My kenmore 70 series won't spin and drain.


Hello,

A leading problem that will make the washer not drain is a defective lid switch. To check if that is the problem,open the lid and close it slowly,when it is almost closed you should hear a clicking sound,do this a couple times and if you do not hear the click the lid switch is what i would suspect as the problem.
To me a technician with 30 years experience i think the switch is very easy to replace,i believe with some mechinacal ability you too could replace the switch assambly.
If it turns out to be the switch i have attached a youtube video that will show you step by step how to replace it http://youtu.be/MFsvLiuTniU

Good luck,i hope this helps

Kenmore 70 series agitates but does not drain or spin cycle.


If the unit is not draining or spinning it sounds like a lid switch. If the unit is draining but not spining it sounds like a drive coupling.
