Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I have a kenmore series 70 washing machine 110.20712 990 that does not go to spin cycle. If I time it right when it is pumping out the water I can open the lid and close it and it begins a spin cycle.All other cycles work fine. It is no spin in all the wash modes. Is there a procedure to follow to find bad part? thanks.
Take the cabinet off the frame; there are 2 snaps that hold the water pump to the (shaft). Behind that is a coupler with three prongs on it, one or all must have worn out, so it will never spin out. Get on Sears Direct Parts site and order that coupler, your machine will spin.
Check the lid switch. If the lid switch is not making proper contact, or is broken, the washer will fill, agitate (some model washers won't), then just stop when it gets to the spin cycle. If this is what you are experiencing, then this could be a quick and easy repair for you.
Try opening and closing the lid. If you don't hear a clicking noise when the lid closes, the lid switch may be bad or loose. It is mounted under the opening of the tub rim on the right-hand side and held in place with two screws. Make sure the lid strike (a small plastic piece) is present on the lid as well. This closes the switch contacts when the lid closes. If the lid switch does not function, the washer will not complete a wash cycle.
