Have a Kenmore 20902 top loading washer. Does aggitate in wash cycle, but wont spin in rinse. With drum empty, it will spin. Removed cloths, rung dry by hand and returned to drum. Still would not spin, but...


Your drum is in a sense sitting on a barring , it sounds like your barring is going out. Works with no weight, and if helping as you said. Normally means barring is worn out and can not handle any weight.

The eashing cicle stops before starting to drain


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.

Your motor clutch is bad. That controls on the motor along with the timer on a washer from going to spin or agitate.

Washing Machine don't spin.


Hi Mambo; Your problem is a fairly common one. The lid switch has gone bad. To test this, open the lid and locate the switch. It will be a small hole that has a plastic piece in it. Use a pencil and push down on it. If you hear, or feel a 'click' then you may have another problem. If you don't hear, or feel a 'click' then the switch is bad and will need replacement. Replacement will require some advanced knowledge of washing machines and the ability to use a box of tools proficiently. Best regards; HELP2DIY

Washer will not spin


Could be a bad clutch or transmission. I would either call a tech or get a new washer (these newer GE models don't seem to be very reliable, go for a Whirlpool/Kenmore model next time). Here are breakdown diagrams for your washer: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=230151 Hope this helps, APP Tech
