Kenmore washer 60 series

I have a washer that worked fine and had no problems until I washed a set of pillows. The washing machine quit working and remained filled with water. The machine will not spin to remove the water. Is there a reset button or some type of switch that needs to be repaired or replaced? Is so where is it located and how do I access it? I do not have a service manual.

Hi, thanks for using the FixYa service. Your lid switch is probably broken. Make sure you can hear it click when you open and close the lid. It it is a very common problem on that model. Probably has nothing to do with the pillows, that was just the last load in the machine before the common part failure. Get me the exact model number and I can get you the replacement part number.

No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
