Check your lid switch.

If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain 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 the switch is not activated by a lid strike, it will activated by a hinge actuator located next to either the left or right lid hinge. You will need to remove the operator console in order to access this type of switch.

If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

A new lid switch or lid strike (if needed) can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. Please post back with a complete model number (located on a nameplate around the wash tub opening) with your questions, so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this is helpful.

NOTE: You do not need to bail or empty the wash tub to complete this repair.

My Kenmore HE2 front load washer when I go to start a load of clothes it's making a humming sound and not filling up with water?


Either one of your water valves isn't working properly, or the lines have sediment restricting the volume of water . What I would do is turn the water to the machine off and remove the water lines and make sure they aren't filled will calcium, etc. and look in the water valves where the hoses connect because that are, which has a screen, may be full of nastiness. If both those are good then the water valve solenoid(s) are stuck and won't open. The humming sound you hear lets you know the rest of the machine is working because the sound is generated by power being applied to the valve by the control.

Getting Sears parts 110.23712200
I will tell you what happened to me. One day my water valve quit. On that veryday my sister in law paid her weekly visit to wash her and my BIL's clothes. She bypasses 5 laundry matts to get here. I tell my wife we should not have a $75 water bill. So the water would not fill in the washer. I told her to get a 5 gallon bucket and fill it up then see how many buckets it took to fill the washer. 7 buckets later the washer kicked in and started doing it's thang. 35 gallons of water to wash a full load on highest level. Then 7 more buckets to do the rinse. 70 gallons of water to wash one load of clothes. I figured I had her cured from coming over every saturday just to wash clothes. But she found out I fixed it. LOL She has a washer and dryer at her house but IF she goes overs a certain amount she uses then the trailer park charges her extra for water. Soo she comes ta my house. Sweet.

Barrel fills up but does not empty


Barrel -ok, your tub is full of water, check the lid switch. If it is not the problem you will have to give more information........To get at the lid switch you have to rotate the control panel up, it is either fastened with screws in the back side of the end caps or you push in to release some spring at the base of the end caps of the panel. Usually there are three wires to a lid switch, the center is the ground with the outside two being hot and neutral.

The first thing seems to be the timer,or the water level switch. Try filling the washer with water by hand, if it starts to agitate after being filled its the timer, if not it is the water level switch, let me know if you need further assistance.
