Hi, if the washer doesn't pump or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:


If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

    Hi, sorry about that. that should be a lid switch problem..

    It skips the first 2 wash because you have a lid switch problem, and it doesn't spin out because you either have a frozen puller or a broken pump belt if the motor is running and if the motor is not running, the lid switch is defective,

Hello,

I would suspect the water inlet valve as being the problem,if it drains the water and spins the lid switch is going to be good.The thing exclusive to rinse cycles is that they only fill with cold water,and that is what i suspect the problem being is that it's not filling with cold water on the rinse cycle because of a bad water inlet valve.

Kenmore model # 110.244222300, Won't automatically complete wash


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.

Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

Initial thoughts are that the Timer is worn / broken.

Here is a description of how to gain access to the console on these washers where you may be able to test the timer. (See the Whirlpool service manual for testing)

Maytag washing machine skips rinse cycle


I found this problem with mine intermittently and it was because i had filled the machine too full that it was too heavy to initiate the spin. maybe try a lighter wash?

Machine stops and goes to end half way through a cycle


Check the filter is not blocked it sounds as if it cannot drain in the time allowd at end of wash cycle. Regards Advisor
