My washer stalls at the end of the wash cycle and I can hit the lid with my hand to restart it


Sounds like your lid safety switch is bad. Replace the switch. If this is a unit with a hidden lid switch, left rear, you may only need tighten your lid hinge screws.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't 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

Washer will not run unless hit the lid


Good morning to you
I think there must be some knob or something in connection with the lid
The mschine needs a kick in the backside to start. Try to find out what is stopping the lid.

Can i use my washing machine with no lid switch


as long as everything is working it's ok,all it is is a safety switch so the washer won't run with the lid open,a kid could open the lid when it's spinning and it won't shut down and if the kid sticks his or her hand or arm inside it could get ugly so it's a safety switch that's it.

Kenmore washer 80 series stopped draining


So it will agitate and fill but the motor won't run during drain and spin?
If so, the likely cause is a bad lid switch. The paddle that the probe hits when the lid is down moves a small switch. That switch can do two things
1. fail internally. It will look fine outside but it won't close the circuit
2. the screw holes snap and it hangs off the wires, the probe no longer hits the paddle and the switch stays open.
The lid switch is cheap and very easy to repair.

The contact button (part where you put the door down to make the washer start to agitate) something came apart....washer is filled with water and now won't go. The part came out.


you broke the lid switch,send the full model number located under the lid,lift the lid up,follow the lid to the bottom and look right under it and you'll see the model number,it will start with like 110.
