SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid

The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.

It may be the coupler. see my link to sears parts for exploded view. coupler is number 13. The coupler is behind the motor and will need the main cover (case) removed to replace it. Inspection is also easier with the case removed. It's an $18.00 part and a bout $90.00 in labor to hire it done. I can help. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22722100&pop=flush at this link choose BRAKE/CLUTCH/GEARCASE/MOTOR/PUMP

SOURCE: My roper whirlpool washer won't spin or drain. the

Yes, a broken lid switch can cause the washer not to drain. The pumps on these washers are strictly mechanical. They have no electrical connections and only have one moving part - the impeller. If the pump were clogged, it would not drain, but if the drain line is clear, the problem is the lid switch. Since you mentioned your switch was broken, I would begin there. Congrats. You've pretty much already diagnosed your problem.

The most common cause of the problem you are experiencing is a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If this advice does not help you enough, repairclinic.com has a Repair Manual you can order to assist you with all your repairs. The part number is 1170635 and is priced at about $20. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: A simple test to determine if the pump is clogged is to use a wet/dry shop to pull a vacuum on the drain line at the standpipe. If the water drains freely, it is not clogged. You can also use simple gravity by removing the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and laying it on the floor. The water will pour out if the pump and lines are clear. This second procedure is messy and I would not recommend it if you have your washer in an indoor laundry room. You can, however, try to use the gravity method by catching the water in a bucket.

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

My Roper Washer RTW43405Q0 won't spin.


For the washer to operate the lid must be fully closed, the timer must be pulled out, and the water must be drained.
The main causes for not spinning are:
  • Lid partially or completely open
  • Lid or other object has hit the timer knob and turned the washer off
  • Lid not locked (by the way, not on all washers) and may be not draining.

    Make sure the lid is completely closed. Make sure that no clothing is in the lid area.

    Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.



    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Hope this works.....

    Loses power in spin cycle


    First lid must be down before washer start spinning. Remove any obstructions in drain hose and or straighten drain hose to remove kinks. Lid or other object hit timer knob and turned the washer off - Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    If the lid was opened with too much force when adding clothes, it may have hit the timer knob, pushing the knob in.
    If a laundry basket or other object hit the Timer knob, the Timer knob may have been pushed in shutting the washer off.
    Washer lid is not locked (Not on All Washers) - The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.
    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Use a flashlight to inspect the holes in tub for foreign objects like screws, nails, bra wires, etc. and remove if present.

    The washer on my double stack won't drain or spin.


    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    Without a complete model number, I'm guessing but usually, washers have a lid lock built in that prevents the washer from draining or spinning unless the lid is closed.

    If the lid lock is defective, the washer probably won't go into spin mode.

    Check yours for the lock, where it attaches and replace it. It's probably not too expensive.
