Yes could be the lid switch depending on the model they are held on by two screws ive seen one break and let the switch hang at an angle so that the lid strike cant fully depress it

I have a Kenmore washer #11026002010. I am having problems with the water overfilling and not progressing to the next cycle. Would you have info on the fault codes and also the recalibration procedure


Does it sound like it wants to spin? If so more than likely the motor coupler broke causing your washer to not spin. It is one of the most common parts that fail.

Anyhow Sears is the best bet for your answers they even list all the steps needed to trouble shoot.

Motor sounds like it is turning the drum but drum is not turning


Check your timer. Jiggle the selector knob,then move it to a position just prior to the spin cycle, see if this helps.

My machine doesn't turn to wash or spin to push out all the water. Can somebody help me.


if the machine fills up and washes but will not drain and spen and is a top loader its mostlikely a bad lid switch. its an easy fix. Just DO NOT bypass the lidswitch. its worth the 40 bucks for the correct part.

After the washer machine fills with water it does not drain or spin, the clocking mechinism /switch does not match the cycle.

Look for signs of a broken lidswitch.
Flip up the controls unplug the lidswitch and check it for continuity or jump it out to see if the washer will start working. As far as the dial indicator being broken To replace that you yank out the retaining rod in the rear to release the knob then you can replace the skirt easily2cc26e6.jpg

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

Washer stopped spinning mid cycle does drain and fill whats the problem


Check to see if you advance the selector knob to the spin cycle. If it does spin at this time, then you have a problem with the selector knob. If it does not then you have a problem in the motor area.

The cycle selector knob turns very fast and the wash goes from the fill mode to the drain mode and does not wash or spin.


the problem is with the selector.behind this,ther is a wheel with teeth.one of the teeth must be broken,causing the selector to turn too fast.

Machine wont fill with water.i have checked pipes and they are okay.if you turn program knob to the spin cycle it will try to enpty.also you can still open the door


Hi there....looking at the programe selector knob....you should see at three positions on the panel a black dot.....ok.......(1) close the door of the machine and switch on the power....(2) turn the programe knob to any one of the dot positions....(2) push the start button....a red indicator lamp should flash 3times and then remain steady indicating the program has been cancelled....(3) Now select a new wash program and push the start button....machine should operate ok....If not check the drain pump to ensure it is not blocked...or wiring loose ...or burned out....if this is ok...then your most likley looking at a module failure...

Ariston margherita wont drain and selector knob keeps turning


Plug off the wall first. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; be prepared for a flood of water. If the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub. Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
You can also drain water from the tub thru the rear hose in the wall. Keep bucket handy. The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground. Do not push the pipe too much down the stand pipe.
