Kenmore Lid Switch Bypass Test

I Have the same problem with my Kenmore washer not spinning or draining. I have the whole unit open and have unplugged the lid switch. How do I run a bypass test, (before ordering the part at the tune of $40) to determine that is my problem? The "female" clip has a light blue, a green and a pink wires leading into it. Any help on how to actually wire the "bypass test" would be greatly helpful - victoria

Kenmore stylemaster 902202 will not spin, agitate or drain tub spins freely


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. Or

unplug lid switch and replace with a piece of wire.(properly insulated of course) i assume that since you know what a lid switch is, you also know to unplug the machine, and watch out for capacitors if opening up the washer .this was the problem with mine and i bypassed it also. just remember the washer will now function through the entire cycle with the lid open. safety is key. imagine what a spin cycle could do to an arm.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.26832690 that will not spin. It will fill up, agitate, but on spin cycle it will only drain. Does this sound like a bad lid switch or a bad drive adapter? From what I've...


if it agitates correctly,then its likely your lid safety switch, agitate and spin cycles are reversed by the motor during the cycles of agitate and spin,some units are wired to not operate on either agitate or spin,but some will operate on agitate with the lid open,but not on spin,open control panel and bypass the lid switch and this will tell you before you tear out the direct drive pump,motor and get to the d.d. coupler at the transmission

My Kenmore 80 series will wash, but when it gets to the rinse it won't spin or drain water? I had used it the day before and it was working fine with lid open or close. Didn't have to close the lid for any...


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/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) 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.

It sounds as if the Lid Switch had been stuck in the closed position and something caused it to open and stick open.

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.

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.

See the Sears parts site for your washer:

I'm assuming that it won't drain. Will it spin????

If it will neither drain NOR spin. I'd check the Lid Switch:

If it WILL spin but simply won't drain. I'd pull the cabinet (See above) and check the pump and hoses for any blockage.

My Kenmore 90 series washer won't spin or drain


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/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) 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.

Following is a Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on top load, direct drive washers. It has a description of how to by-pass the switch.

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$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.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.
