Question about Kenmore 45981 Washer
The washer fills but will not agitate,seems to go through all the cycles.when it should spin it just dumps water.
Could be the door switch, do you hear a clicking sound when you close the lid?
Does the motor hum at all in drain/spin?

Hi Norm. Welcome to FixYa.
The first thing to check with the kind of symptoms your machine exhibits is the operation of the lid switch. Make sure that the pin/plunger on the lid itself has not broken off, and check the actuator lever on the switch itself. It is REALLY common on your model for the actuator arm to break off or crack, and this will cause no spin/no pump problems. Your machine is built by Whirlpool and the part number for the switch assembly is a 3849238. You can get it at any local whirlpool parts center in your area.
I hope you find this info helpful and thank you for allowing us to serve you.
Happy New Year from the FixYa crew!
