Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Sounds like your lid switch is broken.
This is located under the top of the washer and is activated by a tab
that hangs off the side of the lid.
Accessing this part requires you to flip up the control panel by removing two phillips head screws in either the front bottom corners (may be behind the end-cap covers), or rear bottom corners, pull panel forward and lift to disengage the tabs at the bottom. Flip the panel upwards and it will swing back out of the way.
Next you will see one wire connector going into the top of the machine, this is actually your lid switch connector, disconnect it. Now using a flat screwdriver pry the front of the two brass clips towards the rear of the washer (put tip of screwdriver into front most part of clip and press handle of screwdriver towards rear of machine). The clips should pop off the top pretty easily.
Now you can open the lid and place a hand on the front of the opening and pull the cabinet forward. The entire front and side wrapper will come off the base platform and you can set it on the floor to gain access to the lid switch that is screwed to the underside.
Good luck to you on this!

you need to check the lid switch, does it click. you can unplug and then remove the 2 screws to see it, if it looks like it is coming apart then the lid switch is bad. you can buy one for about $40 or so dollars. i am assuming it doesn't spin either.

Sounds like a lid switch. there should be a hole under the lid on the right side about the size of a dime. Make sure the plastic "flipper" is inside and "clicks" when you push down on it with a pen.

Clogged drain lines are not a typical problem. Check that the hose is not pinched or kinked. If this is okay, then the solenoid that engages the drain/pump cycle may be faulty. The solenoid will operate a flapper valve that diverts water out the drain pipe if working properly. You can test this by getting access to tha rear of the unit and manually operating the valve to be sure that the pump is working okay.
