This is usually a symptom of a bad motor control board which located under the console. I had the same problem. You can open the console by removing the three screws in the back and lifting from the rear first. The console will pop off. In addition, if you look along washer top front edge in the seam there is a retaining clip about 2 inches in from each side. Using a putty knife, push in on each clip while lifting and the top should pop up. There will be a tech sheet affixed to the front wall of the washer between the wash tub and case. This tech sheet will give you all the guidance necessary on how to perform tests to prove whether or not the motor controller is at fault, or if the pump is at fault. I believe you may have a motor controller problem, though. Another possibility is getting something caught in the drain pump reservoir. This could binding the pump. Let me know if any of this is helpful to you.

SOURCE: Type 111 filled with water and stopped

with the machine off, turn the cycle dial around 3x very harshly, then try it again. If it works normally now, you'll need a new cycle switch soon!

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.26912691

If you cannot hear the motor running, the initial thoughts are either the timer or (with some later model washers) the Lid Switch.

In order to eliminate the lid switch as the problem,

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.$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.

If you can hear the motor trying to turn, the next place to look is the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Kenmore washer stopped agitating

Hi tyecherry,

This is a very common problem. The motor coupling has failed and needs to be replaced. I've written up SO many repairs for this, I decided to make it easy on you and me.

Here's a video on how to fix it. The part number for the coupler is 285753.

Good luck!

Whirlpool top loading washer doesn't agitate

The agitator dogs only make the top part of the agitator work. you can check the dogs by grabbing the top of the agitator and turning it right then left. If it doesnt lock when turned back the other direction they are bad. If thats not it, it could be your drive coupler. But its only the drive coupler if it doesnt spin. Also check the lid switch. But if its the lid switch Your washer will stay full of water and not drain out. But check your dogs. There are cheap and thats probably your problem.

X box flashing red

I recommend sending the machine back, this happened to me and they do not keep records of when the warrantee runs out. I am sure they will fix the machine. If not, have the machine cleaned by a professional but try sending it back first. Once the machine is opened by someone other than XBox professionals the warrantee is REALLY void. They will fix it, in the letter you include with the xbox just say you purchased it within a year (ex I bought this in March of 2007) and it is no longer working. This has always worked for me...
