    Thank you Coldcut, the solution I found was that when I close the hood or the door I am not sure what the term is, of the machine the rubber that fits in a small pit that is supposed to keep the cycle going was not doing its job, so I kept the door open and pressed a pen inside the space where the rubber fits this way the cycle continues after the rinsing.I am not sure what the next step would be.

This was very helpful and I was able to the back off of my Whirlpool series 90 washer. I still need the part for the lid switch and hopefully I don't have to do any electrical work to replace it. I could not get the top/lid off of the washer so I had to take the back off. I can see the plastic lid switch is broken because it came apart and half of it fell on the floor. I really wish I could have taken the top off without removing the back panel to get to the switch. So, I am working from the back of the washer and I have several parts to put this washer back together after I find a lid switch and then replace it. Thank you. This was the problem because as soon as I pressed the broken lid switch the spin cycle started. I almost wish I could've jimmy rigged a temporary fix rather than taking this washer apart. Again, you were still helpful.

Check or change the lid switch. Unplug the washer. Check the actuator on the lid that operates the lid switch to see if broken

    Only taking the machine apart can get you to the lid switch.
    the links on that site help a lot for most all types of machines.
    this is the final picture of what you will likely be seeing and doing.

    as you know the issue now you have to decide to "MacGyver" it or fix it by replacing the switch.
    the switch is there to keep you from reaching inside and breaking your arm when it is spinning.

Tip

We have a Kenmore 90 series hvy duty top loader, it works fine in wash cycle but...


This advice is for all Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADING washing machines. This includes Kenmore, Estate and Roper models as well. This is an easy repair that anyone with a little know-how and determination can perform.

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. The washer may have release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up.

If not equipped with this type of console, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the white plastic lid switch connector plug. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame, just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Some models will have the switch located on the right-hand side of the lid rim opening, while other models will have the switch located adjacent to one of the lid hinges in the rear.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first (this is the end of the clip with the 90 degree bend), and then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.


I hope this information is helpful..

Kenmore 80's series top loader only works on wash and rinse cycle


This is a problem with the pump being stuck so the motor cant turn the whole thing. Turn the washer on its side, underneath you can acces the pump, which is connected to the motor by two long clips. remove the pump and take out the colg that caused it to get stuck.

90 Series Kenmore Washer Not going to spin cycle not draining water


I've had the same problem...you can purchase a replacement lid switch at your local appliance parts store for about $35. Fortunatly, the sales person at the appliance store had diagrams and provided instructions to replace the switch. I was able to finish the job and fix the switch in less than 1 hour. Good Luck.
