There is at least one safety switch activated by the lid.
Depending on machine construction, these are somewhat exposed to water incursion that eventually causes them to fail.
The slamming of the lid is causing the failing switch to make enough contact to allow it to spin.

If you are lucky (I don't know your machine), these may be located toward the rear of the housing where they can be fairly easily replaced.

My washing machine fills up with water but does not continue the wash cycle. Sometimes when you slam the lid the washer will continue the wash cycle to the end. Other times the washer stays filled up...


Sounds like the lid safety switch is either out of adjustment, or needs replacement.

Most washers will fill with the lid open, but no continue a cycle where the drum or agitator spin, unless it senses the lid is closed.

Well, it seems my kenmore series 70 washer model 110 92274100. wont spin or drain. I did slam the lid down, i am kinda rough on appliances.anyhow, im assuming the safety latch is bad now. I had a load in...


:) ok do this,,unplug the machine .. pop the lid up, not the door , the whole lid,, you will see where the safety switch is,, this is just a pass through switch and can either be jumpered or by passed to check them, locate the plug connection for the switch ,, use a wire to make a U shape and push one end of each end into the connector ( one in each side,, make sure that the 2 wires don't touch,, ) and remember to do this to the side of the machine, Not the part that goes back to the switch,, then plug the machine back in, and set it to the spin cycle,, if this works, just replace the switch

WASHER WILL WASH ON ALL CYCLES, BUT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN ON EITHER CYCLE


If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!

Hope this helps.

Fills with water then won't go to the wash cycle until you slam the lid several times


It sounds like the lid switch is faulty. The washer has a lid switch that checks to see if the lid is open, if lid is open the washer will not start the wash cycle. Check/replace the lid switch and you should be back in business.

STOPS IN MIDDLE OF CYCLE, HAVE TO OPEN LID AND SLAM IT TO COMPLETE CYCLE. ALSO AGITATOR DOESN'T SPIN WHEN WATER IS IN TUB.


A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. 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/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

NOTE: You do not have to drain the washer to complete this repair. Once the lid switch is adjusted or replaced, the water will drain. This will save you time in having to bail water.

PS Slamming the lid switch is not recommended. This will actually break the switch or bow the lid and make the problem worse over time.

Whirlpool Washer stalls out on rinse cycle


This is likely a lid switch problem. They tend to get weak and work sometimes and sometimes not. When it stalls like that try pushing down on lid and see if it kicks in. If so you need to replace the lid switch

Washing Machine is not draining in rinse cycle to go to spin cycl


you both seem to have bad lid switches. A bad lid switch will prevent draining and spinning.

Washer will not pass wash cycle...Will not Drain


Nightshade, in most cases, no spin, no drain is a lid switch problem. If you advance the timer to the spin position does it spin? If the machine is agitating you can rule out the coupler. If you are sure that it is not a lid switch problem, then you are probably looking at a bad timer....Catriver..post back.
