Hello there:
This is a common problem with washing machines there is a relay for the start switch that will fail and when it does it will shut down the entire control panel What the repair men do to test this is to bypass the relay and using a small jumper wire with aligator clips on each end of the wire and 9 out of 10 time the machine will come back to life. Then they replace the relay by rewiring in a new one about a 25 dollar part and they charge youabout 100 dollars for the service call so what yo might want to do is to trouble shoot the start switch relay circuit ok? and save your self alot of money in the long run by repairing this your self.
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Kenmore washer 80 series won't drain, I took out water manually and tried to advance it to spin and it won't spin either. Please Help!


Hello, Your problem is going to be with your lid switch, this is located normally either in the control panel or about half way down on the right side under the lid. This is a safety feature to stop you opening the lid while the machine is in a high spin. Once you have located the switch trace the wires back to the wire harness in the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch from the wire harness and with an ohms meter check for condinuity on pin 1 & 3 (the 2 outside pins not the middle this is a ground) You should find you have no condinuity and should replace this switch. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Kenmore 70 Series Washer won't spin or drain


DO NOT by pass a lid switch. It is installed as a designed safety feature to prevent bodily when opening the lid from moving parts. The CORRECT solution is to replace the switch. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace a lid switch:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Replacements can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deals. The first two web sites have excellent exploded view diagrams of your appliance to aid in parts location and assembly.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS This is not a difficult repair and it doesn't cost much ($25 to $35) on average for a replacement switch. Begin, fisrt by making sure the switch isn't loose or the lid strike (if equipped) isn't broken off. You may not need parts.

Kenmore washer wont drain or spin


Hi, Remove the end caps on the control panel. There is 2 screws in the front corners that need to be removed and the control panel will lift up. Locate the lid switch connection disconnect it. Use an insolated wire and jump the two brown wires and see if the washer will spin. The green wire is groun (Do not use that wire)
I hope this helps you.

Washer won't turn on


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.

Power to the outlet, but apparently no power at the touch pad - it is non responsive with no indicator lights on.


1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

If all the above checks out OK, replace the touch pad.

I have a Kenmore Elete 45862401 Quiet Pac2 front end washer that stops during the wash cycle. it flashes a f6 error code. The manual says it is a loose wire between the mcu and/or control panel,shipping...


With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely.  If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out.  You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part.  I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2.  I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.
