Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Kenmore model 70 washing machine fills with water, doesn't agitate, spin or anything else. Could it be the closed lid sensor? Friend says it broke in two. I told them to unplug power, pig-tail two wires together to complete circuit isolate from all metal and plug power back in, and see if it cycles. Is that advice a good start? Will try to re-post if he calls back and says if it worked or not and we'll go from there. Thanks for replies.

Is it unbalanced?

SOURCE: won't spin
It appears your coupling/drive belt has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

It came off of the Clyde, OH production line the 26'th week of 2001.
Amazing, ain't it? Seriously... the info is embedded in the serial number. Here's the link to the code sheet.
Please remember to rate this solution as "FixYa", OK?
