My kitchenaid Supurba washing keeps stopping, I have to push on the lid to get it to start again.

When the washer stops during a cycle I have to go in and lean on the lid to get it started and stay there until the washer finishes.

Washing machine would not start


On the lid is a switch that turn off the washer when the load pushes against the top. You may have over-loaded the machine.

WASHING MACHINE stopped in mid-cycle


if it stops at the drain and spin cycle check the lid switch,open the lid,set the washer to spin cycle and pull out the timer knob,stick a screw driver into the hole where the strike from the lid goes into and push down,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push down on the switch in the hole then you have a bad lid switch but if your machine does run sometime it sounds like the switch will work if you push down on it,could be cracked where the screws go into it.

Top Loader stopped during spin cycle and now won't work


The lid switch cuts off power to the washer and will cause the washer to stop and not to start at all when it fails or when the lid switch strike breaks. Check the lid switch strike located on the middle right side of the lid. Replace the lids witch strike if it is broken with part number 3950298.

Push and hold the lid switch, using a screwdriver, through the hole on the right side recess of the top cover and start the washer. The lid switch actually clicks when activated.

Check the continuity of the lid switch when activated if the washer still doesn't start when the lid switch is pushed and held. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the screws at the front bottom corners of the console then slightly pull the console forward to clear the console tabs from the slots on the cabinet, and then flip the console to the rear of the washer.

Disconnect the wiring harness connecting the timer to the lid switch wiring harness connector on the cabinet then using an ohmmeter, check the continuity of the lid switch while it is being pushed. Set the ohmmeter to XR1 then touch the test leads to the right and left terminals of the lid switch connector. Replace the lid switch when the resistance reads open.

Agitator no longer moving


sounds like you may have burned out the lid switch. if it is not working the timer thinks the lid is not closed and will not advance.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

Kenmore washing machine model 110 wash cycle stops


DOES IT DO THIS ON EVERY WASH OR SOMETIMES? IF SOMETIMES, CHECK LID SWITCH( THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE WHEN YOU OPEN THE LID, ON THE LID SHOULD HAVE A LITTLE PLASTIC PIECE THAT GOES IN THAT HOLE. THE SWITCH IS UNDER, INSIDE THAT HOLE. YOU CAN GET A PEN OR KEY TO SEE IF IT'S BROKEN.)

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!
