98702 Washer Drain/Spin Dead.

My Kenmore 98702 washer Fills and agitates as expected but stops at the end of cycle failing to drain or spin. If knob is manually moved from drain cycle to rinse unit will agitate but not drain or spin. When in drain or spin unit is quiet making no noise. I would hate to spend a lot of money chasing various potential problems. Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like a bad lid switch.

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

Water will drain durring spin cycle

This is normal on some machines. Run it through a complete cycle it should fill, agitate, drain, some will drain down so low then start spinning as it is draining but should stop draining before it fills or stops. Check if water is coming in at the same time it is draining. If not it may be ok.

My washing machine fails to drain

This could be a bad lid switch. A bad lid switch will allow the washer to fill and agitate but when it comes time to drain and spin it will prevent it from doing this. Check the lid switch.

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle

if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.

Kenmore stack washer and dryer

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

My washer does not work

Sounds like you may have a lid switch problem. Without a model number, I really can give you a part number (Kenmore Stacks are made by two companies, Frigidaire and Whirlpool) or a way to get to it. It is right under the lid. Check the top and be sure that the plunger that goes into the hole isnt broke or missing. If you need further help, send me the model number (will start with 417 if its a Frigidaire or 110 if its a Whirlpool) and will try to get you a little more information. The job on either unit isnt that hard, and parts are pretty inexpensive. Let me know. Jim
