Kenmore 20903 Top Load Washer Problem: No agitation

Washer moves from one sequence to the next, thru filling, draining and SPINNING, just fine. When it should be agitating, it does nothing. The timer keeps going, tho.

I took the agitator off to view the splined shaft. The shaft does not move when it should be. I listened for the motor, but the motor is NOT running during the agitation period either.

The lid switch does seem to be operational, at least it will stop spinning (during the spin cycle) if the lid is opened.

My kenmore washer model#110.24422300 is not agitating, spinning or draining. Problem started today, it work fine yesterday. Tried selecting different settings to get to agitate or drain, did not work.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the washer fills but does not agitate or spin then you can check if the lid switch is fine. You can jump start the lid switch by connecting both the wires with each other or use the third wire to act as jumper between the two. After this if the problem is solved then replacing lid switch is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore Series 80 top loading washer that doesn't spin or agitate

Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!

No spinning or agitating

If it has a mechanical timer switch, (the main control knob) that is possibly the culprit. The timer switch is basically the "brain" of this type of washer. I had this problem on a washer.

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
