Question about Kenmore 22642 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Serial No. CL 4925346, TYPE 111

Everything was running smoothly then I noticed that the machine had stopped, so I figured it was finished and I opened the lid to remove the clothes when I discovered that the tub was still filled with sudsy water. My first thought was that either the control switch is not telling the pump to turn on or the pump itself is dead. I rotated the switch to all other positions for draining the tub but to no avail.

Do I open up the control panel and lood for a faulty electrial switch or do you think it's the pump.

There had not been any unusual or disconcerting noises prior to this occurrance.

Please advise.

    Same exact situation. Took the same actionas the other person. I also emptied the water using a cup then restarted to see if this would work. Did not work. Did same thing. Stopped after wash. Would not drain. Moving to spin did not help.

    Same as the other 2. Is this a common problem?

There are a set of friction pads which engage the washer these pads wear down and then the washer will not wash or spin

What is the date of manufacturing based on the serial number of my Kenmore 70 series washer?

It came off of the Clyde, OH production line the 26'th week of 2001.

Amazing, ain't it? Seriously... the info is embedded in the serial number. Here's the link to the code sheet.

Please remember to rate this solution as "FixYa", OK?

I would make sure that the washer is properly leveled, and ensure that all sensors that check if the door is closed are working properly.
