Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Kenmore washer model 82980120, went through complet washing cycle without draining. Now it does nothing and the washer is filled with water. When I say nothing, I mean when I place the selector lever in any position the washer doesn't make a sound.
Check the sound of a CLICK when you close the lid door. If you do not here it then it's your LIMIT SWITCH that is broken. I had a similar problem and to get my water out quickly I removed the cover that wraps the washer and removed the limit switch and joined the two wires together so that the machine thinks the lid it closed. It is not a safe thing to do but it gives you time to go buy a new one in the mean time you can continue to do your washing. Just remember that when you open the lid door your washer will still SPIN on it's RINSE and DRAIN CYCLE. be very careful if you have KIDS. I hope this will solve your problem.

Unplug the machine. Check the drain line for any kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. You will have to remove as much water as possible from the tub. There will be a flood and you want to keep the mess down to a minimum if possible, so some baling will be necessary. Remove the hoses from the pump and see if there is anything clogging the pump like a piece of clothing, etc. Check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
