The most common cause of the problem you just described is a lid switch malfunction or lid strike (actuator) problem. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, stopping right after the wash cycle, not advancing to rinse or spin cycles, and a wash tub that will not drain.

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" or "Actuator") 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:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because it does NOT have a lid strike (actuator) and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This type of switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator rod by bending it slightly.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

Most timers push in or pull out to prevent damage to the internal timer switches with electricity applied. Take that step and advance the timer to the spin or dry cycle push in and see if the washer removes the water. No spin or dry cycle would indicate possible lid switch, timer problems. LId switch wires can be shorted carefully together, washer runs a new lid switch is needed. Care should be taken not to expose the two lid switch wires to water or shorting against washer metal suggest electrical tape for temporary test.

Washer fills on wash won't fill on rinse. Does on old washer and new washer. Checked and plumber said not the plumbing. Help PLEASE


It seems that you are out of cycle; meaning you are washing on rinse phase and the you are not getting water on rinse because you are at the end of the cycle. Try this; set the washer to the end of the rinse cycle, let it spin and stop. then wait 1/2 hour then start a wash you will be at the beginning of a new wash cycle..

When I start the washer cycle on any cycle, it does nothing, doesn't fill, doesn't sound like its even moving. Dryer works fine. I checked power and I seen to have power coming out of thermocouple.


when washing machine is started ( after applying the wash settings as to water fill , load size rinse etc) the first action is to turn on the water tap solenoid
from there the water fills to the set level at which time the pressure switch turns of the water solenoid and switches on the motor to start the wash
following that line of procedure , if you do not get water flowing after pressing start, the problem is in the water control solenoid , tap turned off or problem in the program board
Call in a technician after checking the other items first

sounds like a shorted machine due to water or moister? In most case you had a fuse blow on the machine somewhat like a thermal shut off fuse, most likely located in the panel. if this is the case u need to find out what shorted it, how water or moister got in? You can also look at the control curcuit board and look for burned seized transistors or areas indicating a burned out board.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
