Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Front Load 3.5 cu ft Washing Machine, NO SPIN CYCLE

Found my washing machine today lit up like a Christmas tree with solid green lights and a load full of soppy towels begging for a spin and rinse. I attempted to interrupt the nonexistant "cycle" anyway I could but the unit wouldn't budge. I could hear the system rev and the water would spurt out a little, but then stopped dead and went back to blinking green lights. Manually, I can spin the drum but the washer isn't willing to perform this action on its own. Help please, I have 5 kids and a bunch of laundry. Should I call out the Sears repairman?

Is it in a diagnostic mode? unplug from wall for 15 sec or so and try again.

Washer won't spin


The washing machine has a safety feature for the spin cycle. It has a lid switch that will only allow it to spin if the lid is closed. The switch is most likely broken. Very commen. If I can get the model # I can tell you how to bypass it or replace the lid switch. Thanks
