Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
It will wash the clothes, but will not allow the water to drain and spin the rest out. have tried everything ot get it to drain but nothing works. I have even taken out clothes and scooped out the water, and tried again, but same problem.
Check your lid switch. If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem 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:
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.
NOTE: Some washer models have the lid switch located near either the left or right hinge of the lid. This type of switch is activated by a rod on the hinge pin. If not functioning, it can often be adjusted by bending the hinge rod until it engages the switch.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS You do not have to drain the washer to complete this repair. Once the switch is replaced the washer will drain on its own. This may save you the need to bail water again.

Hi friend, thanks for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer is not washing or spinning but everything else is working properly. I would advise you to check over the drain hose, make sure it is not restricted or too far down the drain pipe. If that checks out it could be a possible problem with your motor or control panel. One of those components could need to be replaced and for proper replacement I would recommend assistance from a technician to have a proper diagnosis completed. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
