You have to remove the covers and locate the switch (it is still there) you then just join the two wires together to bypass the safety cut out.

Water fills in, but wash cycle won't start. spin cycle works, changed motor still won't work


Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.

Kenmoore washer , model 2262210 serial cl4434210, type111 . will not spin and does not drain . what are the possible problems . please help . thanks . T.W.N. at tednicol@msn.com


if this is a traditional top load washer, then your lid switch might be bad. Usually when this happens, your washer will start fine. Your put it for a normal wash, it does its thing, lets in water, and agitate and stuff, but when it goes to the spin cycle. it stays in that cycle and wont advance. Leaving you with a tub full of water. Like i said if its a traditional top load kenmore, the lid switch is the the gray looking part when you open your lid. when you open your lid, youll see two screws holding it. But you have to take the whole shell of the waher to get to it....take 2 screws on the back corners of the counsel, then flip the counsel up. Locate to metal clips and pop them put with screwdriver. unclip the lid switch connector located by the clear hose that runs down. then lift and pull the whole shell towards your and acess the switch from underneath. put back together how you took it apart.( MAKE SURE THE CLEAR HOSE THAT RUNS FROM THE TOP COUNSEL TO THE TUB DONT GET PINCHED BECAUSE YOUR WASHER WILL OVERFLOW WITH WATER) like i said if its a tradidonal top load kenmore....hope this helps

I have opened the lid and unscrewed the lid contact but now i cant find where the connecter is at how do i get to it?


Is this a older model whirlpool..Like a regular traditional topload. and you unscrewed the 2 screws holding the lid switch. If so, you need to unscrew the top councel. 2 screws on the back of the councel at the corners. unscrew, then flip top councel over. then youll see some clips holding the back panel to the whole cabnet. unclip the, with a flat head screwdriver and then the whole cabnet should come off..lift it a little and pull towrds you and you switch should be hanging under the cabnet somewhere if you look under the cabnet..like i said if this is the traditional top load washers....i would need a model number tho to see...but if it is jus put it back together how you took it apart and make sure you dont kink the clear hose when you put the cabnet back into place. Make sure the cabnet seats right on the frame at the bottom..hopefully this helps...

Don't wash or spin


Is your washer getting enoenough power? The first things to check if your washer dosnt wash or spin are your circuit breaker, lid switch, or fuse box. After making sure there is power to the appliance, you can start troubleshooting other problems. Sometimes the motor will overheat and then requires a cool down period before it will restart.
Is the machine in a pause cycle? Is the lid up? Washers will not spin or agitate if the lid is up. There is a lid switch probe that can sometimes become dislodged. This is generally a little plastic piece that is in the hole under the lid on the washer. This probe activates the lid switch when the lid is put down. Manually advance the timer if the pause is too long.
There are some washer models out there that will not run at all until the water is filled to the level that has been selected. Sometimes the mechanical timer knob on certain washers doesn't exactly line up with the graphics on the control panel. You can try advancing the timer slightly and pull the knob out again to see if it will start. pls dont forget to rate the solution

Washer won't turn on at all


This is a very common symptom of a lid switch malfunction. This happens when the switch wears out. The switch may be loose or not making good contact. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, you will need to remove the console and exterior casing to access the switch. The lid switch on your model is located near the left lid hinge, and is activated by a small steel rod. Sometimes, all it takes is adjusting this rod by bending it slightly to make the switch activate. If you can get the switch to click or activate by hand, there's a good chance all you need to do is adjust the rod that activates it. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it.

Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the lid switch will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (part #8318084). You may also check repairclinic.com. They carry the SAME parts and sometimes offer a better price. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385199-replacing_lid_switch_whirlpool_top

I know the link is for a Kenmore or Whirlpool washer, but your washer is manufactured by Whirlpool and uses the same parts. This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. This total repair will cost you about $15 (if the switch is required). Let me know if you require addtional assistance.

Washer water not draining


Your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley you should remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate its pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely (frozen or stiff) it should be replaced. In case of a broken pump's belt or belt looks quite worn, replace it. In any case, check the pump's pulley before you replacing the belt. Let me know if you need for further assistance. Good luck
