My kenmore 800 series washer started draining but stopped 3/4 of the way and now won't do anything at all


Put the machine into the spin cycle and start as normal. Then with the lid open take a item like a pencil and depress into the lid switch where the lid pushes down on a switch. If machine starts spinning remove and replace lid switch. Let me know.

I have the series 800 Kenmore washer and when I set my dial for any of the cycles it will not turn on. I find myself trying each different wash cycle ,opening and closing the lid, etc. and the machine will...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

My kenmore 800 series has a problem during the spin cycle. more often than not the machine bangs all over the place. i redistribute the wet clothing multiple times so it spins in balance. but all the time....


unplug the machine,remove the two phillips screws that hold down the top console,flip up the console,with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,just stick the screw driver in the hole and on top of the clip and push back towards the wall and the clip will release,in between the clips you'll see the lid switch,a white plastic harness connector,unplug that then open the lid,grab the frame pull back and up and remove the frame of the washer,look at the bottom rear of the frame and the tub,you should see a spring hanging there,the hole that it was connected to rotted out,you need to drill a new hole and connect the spring to it,that spring keeps the machine from bouncing all around like it is

Wife likes to check the wash cycle on the Kenmore


See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


From a liability standpoint, I cannot recommend bypassing the lid switch except during troubleshooting.

Mechanically it's simple to jump the two outer pins but again, I'd recommend against it from a liability and warranty standpoint.

Most likely you need to replace the lid switch.
Open the lid and make sure the actuator that pushes the switch is still attached to the lid. Use a pen or screwdriver to depress the switch through the hole in the top of the cabinet, you should hear a click as the switch closes. I usually find that the switch has actually broken off from the cabinet and is hanging loose in the machine.
To replace the switch
Remove the screws that hold the console to the cabinet. Flip the console up and back like opening a car hood. unplug the wire connector for the lid switch. Pop out the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off the machine base. You can now replace the switch from inside the cabinet.
If you need further help, please post the complete model number from the washer so I can see exactly how your washer is set up.

Kenmore 70 series


First thing is to remove the 2 screws from the console, they may be hidden in the front or bacl of console. After removing screws, lightly push the base of the console towards the front of the washer and pick up. This will expose your lid switch connection. Using a jumper wire, jump out the black and white wires then try advancing your washer into spin/drain. The culprit will usually be the lid switch assy.
