Hello, Welcome to Fixya.

There a several possible reasons your washer could have just "cut off" in the middle of a cycle and not drain, but are all different based on if it`s a frontload or topload.

But I first would like to varify if the unit is a topload or frontload. The model number provided ( 24622300 ) doesn`t come up on the "" website, or several others I tried.

If you could either specify which it is and double check the model number that would be great.

I`ll wait for your reply and then I should be better equipped to help you by taking out the needless Q & A from there.

    This washer is a topload. The serial # is CP3509724. It probably came with the house built in 2003.

  • joebrent7 Jul 13, 2010

    After further research I found the model # uses 11024622300. I hope this helps. Thanks.

    Thank you, It sounds like a lid switch problem based on your description.

    Here's a simple way to confirm the switch problem on most kenmore top load washer's but not all, hence the need for the model number...

    Lift the lid, if you observe the underside of the lid there will be a plastic "strike" or "actuator" that goes into a hole when the lid is closed.

    Check the hole where the actuator goes into the cabinet and insure you can see a gray oval shaped piece. If so take a small screw-driver, pen/pencil or something small enough to fit thru the small hole and try activating the switch by pushing it down ( machine must be in the agitate or spin cycle ). If you don't see it, the switch has likely broken loose and needs to be replaced.

    If it start's to function than the switch is not being contacted properly by the actuator on the lid and likely is due to the switch being worn. Make sure it is being held in place via the two screws along the side, if they are loose tighten them, if it is broken, it will need to be replaced.

    Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

    The lid switch will look like this...

    I'll watch for your reply to see what you find and if I can assist you further.

    good luck.

Clean light flashes continuously. None of the cycles work except drain.

Might help if you provide the model number of the dishwasher.

It is likely the float switch at base of dishwasher is cutting in. Have you tried to turn the power off and back on.

Need model no.

The machine fills up then will not compltete the

Assuming that this is a basic top load, direct drive, neutral drain machine, the following is the Whirlpool (Kenmore) installation and maintenance manual with a very good troubleshooting section.

The problem seems to point to either the timer or motor.$FILE/L-55.pdf

If you need to tear the machine apart, please see an excellent description from GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission.
