Question about Washing Machines
Kenmore washer mdl#110.23832100 ,during spin cycle spin cycle motor runs, pump runs, drum does not until i lift and close lid then it spins out normally when i lift and close the lid it sounds like something engages the motor and all is well untill the next spin cycle and i gotta do it again
Its going to be only 1 of 2 or maybe both things, on your washer its going to be a faulty transmission that is stuck in nuetral OR will be a bad clutch/brake assembly that is stuck or has a broken finger that is catching after you slow it down but usually it would make a bad clicking noise if that was the issue so plan on the transmission. Its actually pretty easy to do if you have some mechanical ability. Another rare but possibility would be the block that holds the tub on the tranny shaft, but you would hear a bad noise also when you lifted the lid.

Hello, looks like your lid switch is on it's way out, replace it...you will find it normally about half way down under the lid. If not there you will find it in the control panel on the right side next to the water level control. The reason it works some times and not others is because some times it fails to push the lid switch down far enough to engage. the lid switch is a safety divice inteneded to stop you opening the lid while in a high speed spin. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Mike
