Not likely. You really should replace it. This is not an expensive part and its a fairly simple repair. The following link explains how to replace one:

A replacement can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price.

This is a very simple repair, that usually costs about $25 to $35 to repair yourself. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

you forgot the first three 110.82881100 is the full model,you'll need that to order the right parts.it sounds like you have a broken lid switch,i looked up your machine and it takes the older cherry switch part number 279347 and it's around 35 dollars.close the lid down,then open it around an inch or two,do this a few times,you should hear a clicking sound,if it isn't clicking the lid switch is broke,i'll send you a video from utube but it's for a different lid switch but you take the machine apart the same way but it's for a 247 lid switch and you need a 279347.if you can hear the motor running and this is happening you could have broken the motor coupling and i'll send that along too.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU this is for the lid switch copy and paste.this is for the motor coupling http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c hope this helps salde

Kenmore mod 23832100 Lid Switch broken HOw do I


Good day,
There are 3 different style lid switches used on Whirlpool/Kenmore washers. You have to break down the unit to determine which one you use. Any appliance parts house will carry what you need.
Here is an excellent tutorial.

Kenmore 110 80 Series. Agitates, fills, won't spin


This is most likely the lid/door switch loose in its mount or, switch has dirty contacts or, it's broken. The lid switch is a safety feature which keep the tub from spinning if the lid/door is up/open.

Don't know if switch comes apart to clean contacts, but if its tight in the mount (which means loose mount is not the problem) then you could remove it, soak it in rubbing alcohol for a while to clean it (if you can't easily take it apart and reassemble).

Type 111 filled with water and stopped


with the machine off, turn the cycle dial around 3x very harshly, then try it again. If it works normally now, you'll need a new cycle switch soon!

I think it is the same proble as you discribe


Hey chiki76
You still have a lid switch problem. The switch has to be replaced. The switch usually comes apart or the clips securing them are broken

You can replace the switch, it appears, without lifting the lid. I've ordered the repair manual (LIT4314044) but I can feel the connector and wires. It appears that the lid switch can be replaced without taking anything apart. There does appear to be a screw on the back that holds the ground in place.
