I have a kenmore 80 series washing machine. During the second cycle it stopped working. It won't drain or spin. What should I do?


If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine 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 washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

We have a Kenmore Series 80 Top Load washing machine. The problem we have is that after it washes the clothes, it won't spin. Can we fix it?


Sure you can fix it. I suspect you have a broken lid switch. To repair it you flip up the controls. Unplug the lidswitch. Pop the S-clips and remove the case. You can now replace that lid switch. If it turns out to be ok you might want to look inside the pump for objects that can lock it up. If it is locked up the tub will not spin. Why? Because the pump is mounted directly to the motor. If it pumps but don't spin then look for a broken drive coupling. None of this stuff is difficult to repair. I have videos of all these fixes and a service manual HERE.

Broken switch on Kenmore washing machine


If you are referring to the lid switch, you will need to remove the exterior washer case in order to access it. This is a lot easier than it sounds. The following link explains step-by-step how to access and replace a lid switch:

If you have any questions, or if you are referring to a different switch, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore Series 80 washer doesn't always spin, only 1/3 of time.


First of all check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely,if it's frozen or stiff,replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine 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 washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Kenmore kill switch


it's under the top panel, you must remove the two screws on the control panel (one on each side in the front lower corner of control panel), then roll the entire panel up and over the top on it's hinges. then there are two gold clips (one on each side) that loosen the back from the entire cabinet, stick a flat blade screwdriver in them and they will pop out. theres one plug with three wires in it going to the top re,ove it, then open the lid and grab the top panel and tilt to you about 30 degrees up and slide the whole cabinet away from the base and guts of the machine.
now you can access the lid switch to replace it.
