Sure will. Why? Because the pump is mounted on the drive motor. If the lid switch is bad the motor won't run. If the motor don't run the pump won't pump. The motor goes both directions. In one direction the water is retained in the tub and the gears inside the tranny agitate the wash. In the opposite direction the water is tossed out and in some models a neutral pack is installed. That allows the pump to remove the water before the tub has to turn. When the pumping is timed out the power is killed momentarily and the spin pawl gets released. When power is resumed the spin pawl catches one of 3 bosses under the main drive gear. This make the drum spin. Clever ain't it? I have 2 movies Got popcorn? LOL the first vid is how to get inside the washer (cause they ain't all the same) The second show the lid switch replacement:

20422 Top loading Kenmore washer stopped working totally. It just quit and won't drain and it won't spin. I hear the motor click on, then there is a humming, and then it goes off. It stopped during the...


A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

NOTE: You do not have to drain the washer to complete this repair. Once the lid switch is adjusted or replaced, the water will drain. This will save you time in having to bail water.

Water won't drain


This is usually caused by the lid safety switch. When the switch malfunctions, The washer believes the lid is open and the washer will not spin or empty. The switch is intended to prevent injury during the spin cycle. The timer could be bad but it is usually the switch..

Runs full wash cycle, but there it is still full of water and suds


Amy, there was a service flash for the lid switch on this model. The contacts inside the switch were sporatic which caused; stopping in mid cycle, wet clothes and no drain. You would have to put it in spin and have someone jiggle the wires to the lid switch to verify that this is the problem and not a timer problem. I really think it's a lid switch problem. Your part number for the new, non adjustable switch is 12001908.
