There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated. The machine works except advancing to the spin cycle and this signifies that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replace the door lock and switch assembly to address the issue. Indicate the complete and exact model number of the machine for the right replacement part number.

Disconnect power to the machine then open the washer door and look for the retaining hoop securing the door seal around the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of long-nose pliers to grasp the wire hoop at the spring location and expand it to clear the door gasket and remove the spring and wire hoop.

Carefully peel off part of the door seal from the lip of the door opening near the door lock and switch assembly. Remove enough of the door seal to gain access to the door lock and switch assembly.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Put the new door lock and switch assembly back into position in the front panel and secure it with the securing screws.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Not spining- water standing can't get water to


    If your washer is not spinning ! You first need to drain it. Then underneath your washer you will find your drive system. It will consist of drive belt, drive pulley or pullies and motor. Belt could have come off , if so check the condition before reinstalling, also some times from overloading the belt will spin on the pulley which will make it hot and thanks to the manufacturer the pulley is likely plastic. Parts supply shops best source for belts and possibly pulley though sometimes they want to sale you the whole motor with pulley which you don't need. If so uae internet to find your pulley probably under 10.00 dollars. Hope this helps.

    Kenmore 80 series makes noise in sping cycle


    Its the transmission. Try to find a used appliance store in your town. Most save used parts and you should be able to pick up a used tranny for around 100 bucks.
