Kenmore washer will do everyything but final rinse

My Kenmore washer will do everything but the final spin. The water empties from the tub. After the timer finishes I can set the dial to spin & sometimes it spins & sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't, all I have to do is open & close the lid & it will spin. Is it the the lid switch?

This is a very typical symptom of a lid switch that is either broken or has come loose. If your lid switch is mounted on the right hand side of the lid, make sure the mounting screws are tight and the lid strike is in place (this is a plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch when closed). If your lid switch is on the left hand side in the rear under the washer rim (out of view), you may have to adjust the rod that activates it.

Sounds like a lid switch to me. The symptoms you describe are often caused by a lid switch malfunction. The switch may be loose or not making good contact. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it.

Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the lid switch will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (part #3949238). The lid strike is listed as item 20 (part #350733). You may also check repairclinic.com. They carry the SAME parts and sometimes offer a better price. For instructions on how to replace a lid switch, click on the following link:

This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. A replacement switch usually costs between $25 and $35. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require further assistance.

NOTE: Future reference (this is just constructive advice), if you are in the habit of slamming the washer lid or placing heavy objects on the it, this will cause damage to the lid switch. In addition, also make sure your washer lid is not bowed. Placing objects on the lid can cause the lid to bow and prevent it from making the proper contact with the lid switch. This will give you the same symptoms.

You,ve done a good job the first time the pump fail MikieM. You can do it again. We sometimes forget to empty our pocket. Some small metal things could have gotten into the pump...could be other hard foreign object. Good luck.
