If you can get to where the switch is you can run a jumper wire across the 2 wires to check if it is a bad switch.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin


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

Washer fills with water but then will not cycle through after filling tub


I looked up yur model. It is a fine washer. Your lid switch on this model don't allow for wsh or spin if the the lid is ope. Older models would let the washer wash but not spin. This switch here won't allow for wash or spin. How it works

My page on these

Note: this washer is a newer model and I have yet to come across one. I believe your problem to be the lid switch. It has 3 wires. 2 hot ones and another one attached to the frame. Jump them 2 live wires and see if she runs. If it works get a new switch and party on!

I have a Kenmore 70 Series that is not draining the water or spinning. It is a top load. Model # 22722. Do you know what is wrong and can it be fixed? Cost to fix?


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. You can find the complete model number (110.########) by lifting the lid.

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.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=913ba652cd504fb162f87d892bcb427b

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.


A complete Lid Switch (See the diagram of the cabinet on the Sears site) is about $36.92.

Although I CANNOT recommend it, if cost is a real problem, you could likely leave the jumpers in place.

Kenmore washing machine 80 Series 110 20802 990 Will not agitate or spin"


You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.
