Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
This is a typical symptom of a lid switch problem. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (Part number 3949238).
Thank you !!

Well first of all you can check, if your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
To remove the cloth from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.
Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do and you may need special tools.
If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. Please reply for further help or information......

Tips for a great answer:
Welcome to FixYa
draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or
the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump
filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns
after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get
back to me if you have any other questions.
