Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
I opened the kenmore series 80 while it was washing to drop a shirt inside it and now will not start or continue. I took out the cloths from the machine but there is still water inside. Now I can not start it
Most often the lid swtch is out of alignment, less often the switch fails
with the lid open examine the underside of the lid for the plastic 'tooth' that is supposed to engage the switch, if broken or missing replace, test
with the lid open and the washer turned on, use a ballpoint pen to engage the switch plate in the hole at the right side of the lid
If the washer starts, adjust the switch position, test
If the washer does not start
remove the edge trims from the console
remove the screws from the lower corners of the console
slide consloe forward ~1/2 inch, flip up and over
ensure cable is connected to lid switch connector
try lid switch again with ball pen
if washer does not start the switch has failed,
remove metal retainer clips from rear of washer top, remember installed position, you have to put them back
lift washer case 1 inch slide forward, lay down, remove switch
reassemble in reverse order, test
3-5 times a month, takes about 25 minutes, the switch costs $7.95+tax
