Recently our LSQ8243H Washer stopped in the middle of the cycle. The first couple of times it happened all we had to do was open and close the lid and everything was fine. Now it stops and we have to...


Hi, I'd like to help diagnose your problem but I may need a bit more information. Based on what you stated, I assume you have a top loading WHR washer with an electromechanical timer... the kind that you turn and it clicks. Anyway, you stated that the washer stopped in the middle of the cycle and that simply opening and closing the lid would fix it for a while. I suspect that your lid safety switch may be cracked and isn't being actuated by the plunger on the lid. If this is the case, the washer would function properly until it reached the point in the cycle where it should spin. Then it would stop at that point in the cycle. This makes sense that opening and closing the lid might "fix" it for a while. Also, if the switch got bad enough that opening / closing the lid didn't work anymore, you could rotate the timer dial just past the spin area and the cycle would continue. Have you noticed the clothes are wetter at the end of the cycle?

Anyway, check the lid switch first and then repost if you rule it out.

Good luck.

Washer will not go into the spin cycle


If the machine runs through everything and just stops full of water at the spin cycle your lid switch is probably bad. Its either located under the lid when you open it on the right hand side, or under the control heading. If its there just open the lid and listen for a clicking sound when you open and close, if you don't hear that the switch is broke.

Washing machine stops mid-cycle, water doesn't drain


Sounds like you have a bad lid switch, or the plastic plunger on the lid that engages the lid switch is broke. if the plunger is broke, it is cheap, and only 2 screws to remove and put new one on. if that is not broke, check the lid switch. This model is a lid switch, and lid lock in one. You can test it before replacing it if you have a meter. you need to hinge the lid up to check and replace the lid switch. use a putty knife, on each side between the top and top of the front panel. slide the putty knife in one side, it will hit a bracket if your in the right spot. press in, and lift on that side of the top. do the same on other side, just don't let go of the first side or it will latch again. then swing the top back, the back side is on hinges. the lid switch is on the right side attached to the top. unplug washer, remove the 2 wires on the switch and check continuity. there should be continuity, or "open" when the lid is closed, and no continuity, or "closed" when you open the lid. if it is "closed" even when lid is closed, replace the lid switch. let me know if you have any further questions, shane.

My kenmore top loading washer 70 series wont go into spin cycle


check the lid switch some washers will fill and was with the lid open but will not spin, if the lid is closed manually actuate the lid switch or bypass it electrically, or replace it.

2242210 will not spin..wash cycle is fine


Could be several things, but the most common is the lid switch. The little plastic rod on the lid strikes it when the lid is closed. Make sure the switch is not broke. You should hear it click when the lid is closed. If not then it is definitely that.

Will not drain after the wash cycle, will not enter the rinse cycle


It sounds like the lid switch is bad.Does it act as if the lid is open even when closed? A common problem is that its mounting method fails (breaks off) after some time. Quick way to test is:
Find the plastic striker in the lid and under matching hole in the washer's top you should be able to find this switch. Try to operate (close) that switch with your finger or a screw driver and operate the washer while holding it down. If now it works, the switch is the culprit. Available on-line around $30.

My washer does not drain after the rinse cycle


Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, replace lid switch.
