Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

OK I HAD A BAD LID SWITCH ON MY KENMORE WASHER SO I BOUGHT ONE THAT LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE MINE. WHEN I GOT HOMWE I FOUND OUT THE PLUG IN WAS DIFFERENT. IT HAS THE SAME THREE WIRES ALL MATCHING COLORS. SINCE I CAN'T RETURN THE SWITCH BECAUSE I OPENED IT, CAN I JUST CUT THE PLUGS OFF AND WIRE IT DIRECT? AS I SAID ALL THREE WIRES MATCH. THANKS

Look at both switches for markings by the contacts or wires or on the switch itself.

NC = Normally Closed connection
NO = Normally Open connection
C = Common connection

If the colors match the markings on the switch you should be good. If they do not match wire colors, match the markings NC – NO – C marked on the switch. Also make sure the voltage and current ratings are the same or higher than the original switch.

Just replace motor coupler a few days ago...now washer filled up, washed & got to rinse cycle then stopped. Turned dial back to wash cycle, won't work. Checked lid switch, not broken. Jumped outer...


since the coupler is new and lid switch was jumped i would be looking at the connections on the motor plug that you disconnected to replace coupler depending on your exact model there is the main plug the 2 wires on the capicator and a smaller plug. BUT FIRST recheck lid switch what must be jumped out is the connection leading up to control panel and NOT the part in the cabinet
to me a appliance tech w/30 years experience it sounds like a bad lid switch!

The agitator won't work, and the button under the lid fell off. What can we do to fix it, or would it cost too much to fix it?


Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number? ..........

Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines.........

The model number on top load washers is usually found by lifting the lid and looking above the tub.

The Fixya numbers are Stock Numbers.

Since basic top load direct drive, top load electronic and front load washers are very different, the actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem.

IF THIS IS A BASIC KENMORE / SEARS TOP LOAD, DIRECT DRIVE WASHER THE PROBLEM IS LIKELY A LID SWITCH. (EASY AND INEXPENSIVE TO FIX)

I'D NEED TO KNOW THE BRAND AND MODEL NUMBER TO BETTER SUGGEST A SOLUTION.

Fills, Washes but won't drain or spin and the timer stops moving at that part of the cycle.  It does this on ALL wash/rinse cycles.


Mine had the exact same problem! After looking around here, I determined it was the lid switch. When you open/close the lid, it should activate a little switch to let the machine know the lid is closed. It should make a distinctive CLICK sound, even when the machine is unplugged. If it doesn't that means the machine thinks the lid is still open and won't go any further as a safety precaution. On mine, I followed directions on this site to bypass the lid switch until I got a replacement part. It is now working fine.

However, after I disconnected it, I realized that I could have fixed the switch itself without having to get a new one. The glue holding the whole switch together was simply not working any more. If I held the switch together, it clicked again. I could have fixed the whole thing with a strong rubber band and saved my self the $35 part and hassle of having to go back and replace it. Oh well, too late now since I already disconnected it from the wires.

Look for Replacing a Lid Switch for great directions on this fix. If the lid switch isn't the problem, by the way, the other solutions seem to be with the pump being clogged. But the way you described the problem sounds like exactly happened to mine. Good luck!

Almost sounds like a timer or timer motor problem.  Could also be a loose wiring harness around the timer.  When you said it when into spin, but the next day, did the timer move at all during the "break".  Usually, a lid switch will give off that "tell-tale" clicking sound when lifting the lid.  See if it makes this noise, but it really doesnt sound like a lid switch issue.  Really sounds like a dead spot, or spots, in the timer.  Let me know.  Jim
