Not a complete answer, but this might help. The manual says this is a lid switch error. You can find the manual at: https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2c1e295a88aaaae885256c5d004632a4/$FILE/8178010.pdf
Hopefully this is an easy, inexpensive fix. Good Luck!

For the last few weeks, my 5 year old LG 2487HRMA, has been giving me de code errors shortly after starting. It is because the lock light just goes from red to off for no reason.


Lift up the top of your washer and there will be a code and test sheet in there that will help lead you to fixing that problem, almost sounds like it went into the its own test mode.

Started a load of clothes turn on the washer and it overflowed wiyh water making a huge mess. the washer is about 10 years old. What's wrong?


If the water will not shut off when the machine is stopped you need to replace the valve assembly. It is an easy job, as the assembly is accessed from the rear.

If the water will shut off, then the problem is in your pressure system or timer. Check the air tube, and if that is ok, your problem is likely the water level pressure switch.

Top loading Kenmore washer runs for a few seconds then shuts off


It's quite possible, however,

If you're mechanically inclined, I'd check the motor, transmission and pump first.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers and it's trouble-shooting section.

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

See the following for how to pull the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission to check them all.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO PULL THE TUB.

Washer doesn't stay running. filled with water, then shut down then filled some more and now stuck doing nothing. If push start button if runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. 10 years old.


For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service Center...trust me...I know.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis He Washer model #110.2706 will not fill with water. I have checked for blockage in the water lines and they are clean and clear. The washer is only two years old. It will hum like it...


Your fill valve needs replacing. Not too expensive to change. This is all based on the fact that you have checked both feeds to the washer hook up and that the shut off lever is fully open.

Doesnt agitate or spin.


Mine is 1 1/2 years old and this worked for me

unplug from power for at least 30 seconds

turn the dial to spin but don't pull out

plug back in to power and open and shut completely so switch is engaged solidly 11 times in 15 seconds.

pull out knob to turn on

This should clear a error code.

hope it helps!
