My washer sensor turns on and then the lid light starts flashing and the washer will not turn on. What is wrong with it?


What is the model number listed on the unit?The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)

I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed.

The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.

My kenmore washer won't drain.


The top reason why that washer will not drain is gonna be the lid switch. Why you might ask?
The motor on your machine runs in both directions as it does triple duty. It washes it pumps and it spins. In one direction the tub is locked and the agitation washes them clothes.In the other direction it pumps and spins. The original models would pump and spin at the same time. This strained the motor so the newer models have a neutral pack installed in the tranny to allow the water to be drained first before she takes off. A momentary pause shifts the tranny fom pump to spin. If the water does not pump out it is because the lid switch is broken. Older models will allow the washer to wash but no spin with the lid open. Newer models won't allow for wash or spin. themobilian_1807.jpgthemobilian_1808.jpgthemobilian_1809.jpgthemobilian_1810.jpgthemobilian_1811.jpgthemobilian_1812.jpg
After you remove the case you will notice the lid switch quick connect has 3 wires. 2 hot wires and a green ground wire bolted to frame.

I jump the 2 hot wires so I can run the washer with the case off. I can
locate leaks and noises and observe the washer in action with the case off.

1 Answer

My kenmore series 80 washer will fill up and wash but it stops when it gets to the spin cycle. I have to empty the water by hand. Any ideas about why my washer will be appreciated.


Your washer uses a lid switch which kills power to the motor if you open the lid while it is in spin. These lid switches fail. They have 3 wires. One green wire that bolts to frame for earth ground and 2 live wires. Touch them two live wires together and it will effectively bypass the lid switch where you can wash clothes but it would be dangerous to children.
