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-11025862400/0582/0153200?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.

Why will my ghwn4250dww not start


You say no start. Does it attempt to fill with water. If no water---possibly a bad inlet valve which is the part the house hoses attach to. It is a 2 part valve with a hot and cold side. If no fill and you are on hot wash, switch to cold wash and see if it fills. That will tell for sure you have a bad valve. If it fills and then does nothing we have a different set of problems. Let me know exactly what is happening.

It means the washer is failing to completely drain. If you can find no problem with the washer drain hose and the volume coming out is ok, then you may need to replace the CCU (central control unit)

My washing machine is not changing cycles. It fills, drains and refills. It sat unused for 1 year. 12 months ago it was working fine.


Hi there. I can help you.

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. If this is the case, turn off the water and remove the hoses. Check both hoses to be sure the filter screens are not clogged with crud and that the hoses aren't kinked.

Kenmore washer 24802, model 110.92480200, serial # cce3564876. cycling stops after wash and before rinse


This is normaly because your cold water inlet soliniode is faulty. If you want to test it set the wash temp to cold and start the machine, It should do nothing. then set it to warm or hot wash and see if it fills with water if so the cold inlet soliniode needs replacing
