No, don't throw it out. The lid switch has fallen apart. You can just jump it out under the control panel. It will be the plug on the right side after lifting the control panel: pop off ends and unscrew the two Phillip head screws. Pull the plug through the hole and cut and strip the wires on the ones going to the switch and use a wire nut to connect the gray wires together. Just leave the green and yellow wire hanging.

My 21882 top load Kenmore washer will start the cycle but stops after filling up; i can restart the cycle by pushing the knob in and going a little further in the cycle then starting again. But after a...


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.

    I filled my washing machine with clothes tonight and it got to the end of the short cold wash cycle and had stopped running so I pushed in the knob then pulled it back out and then pushed it back in and...


    It sounds as if the machine doesn't spin during the spin cycle. Normally the agitator stops spinning, fairly quickly, if the lid is opened during the spin cycle.That safety circuit includes a switch mounted under the opening and is set by a tab on the lid that protrudes thru a small hole in the top of the washer. The most likely failure on most Kenmore models is that switch, broken or loose, the tab on the lid broken, or the two misaligned. I would need the model number of your washer, located on a tag on the bottom of the lid to be more specific

    My frigidaire top loader fills with water at the beginning of the wash...then nothing. it just sits there full of water.


    Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.

    It sounds like your timer motor may have died. Pull the knobs off the controls and remove the screws in the control panel to get to the motor. The motor is usually pretty expensive, so you might want to consider buying a new washer over replacing the timer motor.

    Aside from complete disassembly & cleaning it, try a hot wash on full with nothing in it except a bunch of bleach.
