    Hello,

    Here are the step to solve the problem below.




















    Kenmore
    washers are sold by Sears and come in a variety of models and styles.
    The top loading Kenmore washers all clean laundry by means of an
    agitator that spins in the washer tub, keeping the laundry circulating.
    Because they are made of plastic and exposed to so much water and so
    many temperature changes, sometimes these agitators crack or break. In
    that case, you'll have to remove the agitator on your Kenmore washer in
    order to make way for a new one.
















    Instructions
    Things You'll Need:











    • Flat head screwdriver,Socket wrench (if necessary),Safety glove.







    1. 1


      Turn off your washer and unplug it from the wall. Lift up the hood to reveal the washer tub and agitator.




    2. 2


      Remove
      the agitator cap. Depending on your Kenmore model, this can be done in
      one of two ways. First, try to unscrew the cap counter-clockwise. If
      this doesn't work, look for the line that separates the bottom of the
      cap from the top of the agitator. Gently press a screwdriver into this
      joint and pry off the agitator cap.




    3. 3


      Remove
      the agitator bolt. As in Step 2, how you do this depends on your
      Kenmore model. Some Kenmore washers have a hex bolt that holds down the
      agitator. Remove this with a socket wrench. Other models use a plastic
      screw with a square insert in the center. Remove these type of screws
      by inserting the end of a large, flat bladed screwdriver into the hole
      and turning counter-clockwise. You can also use the square end of a
      socket wrench.




    4. 4


      Put
      on the safety gloves. Take your hands and place them beneath the
      agitator, one on each side. Keep your head away from above the laundry
      tub and turned to the side. Then tug on the agitator. Keep your head
      turned so the agitator doesn't hit you in the face if it suddenly pops
      off. Because of the action of water, temperature and detergent,
      sometimes these agitators can get stuck and be quite stubborn to
      remove. There are a couple of tricks you can try if this is the case.
      First, take a small block of wood and hold it over the agitator hub.
      Tap this a few times with a hammer. This should loosen the hub. Another
      trick you can try is to plug the washer back in and run a cycle on the
      hottest temperature. Allow the washer to fill up halfway, then stop it.
      Try to remove the agitator. Hot water causes metal to expand and
      hopefully this will wedge your agitator off the hub
    Thanks once again.

    Tools and Materials



    • Flathead and Philips screwdriver

    • Wrench set

    • Replacement switch

    You will want to gather your tools and replacement part in
    preparation for the job. Make sure that you unplug the electrical
    supply to the washing machine. It may be easier to maneuver if you move
    the machine out of a tight spot, such as a closet, as you will need to
    be able to access all sides of the machine.

    Step 1- Safety First


    Double check to make sure the electrical supply has been disconnected and there is no power going to the machine.

    Step 2-Remove the Top of the Machine


    Unscrew the top of the washing machine; there will likely be both
    screws and bolts. Make note of the placement of the screws and bolts.
    It is helpful to work in a clockwise pattern when removing, and place
    the screws and bolts on a surface or sectioned container in the order
    they are removed. Lift off the top of the machine. Some lids have a lip
    on one side, and may need to be slid forward and tilted up for removal.

    Step 3-Replace the Switch


    Examine the lid switch. Some switches are attached to electrical
    sensors using clamps; others are attached with small bolts. Loosen
    clamps or screws and remove the old switch. Replace with the new switch
    and tighten clamps or screws.

    Step 4- Replace the Lid


    Replace the machine lid. If the lid required sliding and lifting, replace in the reverse order that it was removed.

    Step 5- Replace Remaining Hardware


    Replace screws and bolts to refasten the lid of the machine.

    Step 6- Test the Machine


    Plug the machine in and test the function by starting it on different cycles.

    Hope this help?.

    thanks once again.

I have a Kenmore model # 13212200 it will agitate but will not drain or go to the rinse or spin cylces. I have tried by closing the lid as well when trying to got the next cylce. Is it my control panel?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11013212200/0582/0153200?pathTaken=

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

Belt is loose or needs replaced. on a 70 series kenmore washer machine


Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number? ..........

Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines.........

The model number on top load washers is usually found by lifting the lid and looking above the tub.

The Fixya numbers are Stock Numbers.

Since basic top load direct drive, top load electronic and front load washers are very different, the actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem.


Slipping on direct drive washers is usually caused by a damaged / broken Motor Coupler or clutch.

If yours is a direct drive machine, see the following:

My mom has a Kenmore washer model# 13212200. It has been sitting unused for 4 years. I ran the machine to make sure all was working and all was fine until it got to the rinse/spin cycle. It would not...


If the washer fills normally, begins the wash cycle, then stops at the spin cycle and won't drain, then you need to check your lid switch and/or lid strike. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, stopping right after the wash cycle, not advancing to rinse or spin cycles, and a wash tub that will not drain.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. The part number for a replacement switch for the model number you provided is 3949247. The lid strike (also called an "actuator') part number is 350733.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If this advice does not help you enough, repairclinic.com has a Repair Manual you can order to assist you with all your repairs. The part number is 1170635 and is priced at about $20. Searspartsdirect.com also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Kenmore heavy duty extra large capacity washer will not drain or spin. model #13212200


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If it neither drains nor spins, the first thing to check is the Lid Switch. This prevents the machine from draining and spinning if the lid is open.

I assume that you cannot hear the motor trying to turn.

See the following for how to access the console and Lid Switch connection.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=6f8112b458c05fcc8f6d1a4139b9a723

2007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, remove the two plastic clips from the console,

remove the two screws under the clips, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire,

jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.
