Kenmore model 23832100 washer will not spin in rinse cycle kenmore model 23832100 washer fills, agitates, and drains, but will not spin. Makes noise after draining. BUT if I manually turn off the machine...


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

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.

Maytag stacked unit LSE7806ACE. dryer is fine , the washer will not fill or run, if I manually turn the timer to drain the tub spins and the lid switch works fine. But the unit won't do anything f


You have a timer problem, the contacts are welded in spin mode.
This is almost always caused by advancing the timer by hand when the dial is pulled out in the "ON" position, causing arcing of the contacts.

check the lid switch,it is located in the area where the lid lands on the washer housing when closed it is a safety feature that shuts off the machine if you open the door during the spin cycle,they can get touchy due to vibration from running,also check your balance ring,if you have a severly unbalanced load it will stop the machine

Washer stopped at the drain cycle Model LSR8233JQ1


Could be either a bad lid switch or a bad water valve.
Set the timer dial to SPIN and turn the machine on.
If it spins the lid switch is OK. If it does not spin the lid switch must be replaced.
Next,set the timer dial on a wash cycle and set the water temperature knob to COLD water. If it fills,the lid switch is bad. If it does not fill the water valve is bad or the cold screen filter is clogged.
If the COLD does not fill,turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the machine water valve and check for a clooged screen.
If it does not fill with COLD water and the screen is clear,replace the water valve.

Will not pump out the water


You have a bad lid switch. Open the control console. Remove the lid switch wire. Make a jumper wire from a insulated piece of wire. Insert it into the lid switch harness connected to the machine(not the cabinet). Turn the dial to spin. If it spins replace the lid switch.
If it makes motor noises and does not spin,replace the direct drive coupling on the motor.
