Have a kenmore elite washing machine which i purchased in 2005. The machine will stop in mid cycle and will start again when the door (top load) is opened and shut again. Could this be a problem with the...


what cycle does it happen in?close the lid and open it a few times,does it make a clicking sound,if it does i would say the switch is good,also you can do this,next time it happens open the lid carefully without banging the machine so you don't disturb anything,get a screw driver and stick it in the hole and see if it runs, if it does i'd say it's the switch,but i've seen this before right before it goes into the spin cycles,the clutch doesn't fall in the tranny. and when the lid is opened and closed the clutch falls.keep an eye on it and see where on the timer this happens,make a mark and see if it does it in the same spot,depending on how hard you close the lid it could be the switch,the timer sticking,i've tapped the timer when something like this happens and it sometimes starts or the clutch in the tranny,when you close the lid did you ever notice if you heard a clunking sound and then it starts to spin..also if you open the top console,unplug the lid switch and stick a jumper wire in the two outside holes of the part you unplug,the lid switch is closest to the right side clip and it's a white connector, you can bypass the switch to check it, all it is is a safety so the machine won't run with the lid open or instead of doing that you can stick a screw driver into the hole and let the machine run like that if you think it's the switch,let me know what you find.

Washer fills with water but won't agitate or spin.


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description it sounds like a lid switch problem.

Here`s how you can check it pretty easily...

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis topload washer, not neccessarily applicable to ALL...especially those built in the past 1-2yrs. the model number would distinguish if it applies to your particular model )

Lift the lid, if you observe the underside of the lid there will be a plastic "strike" or "actuator" that goes into a hole when the lid is closed.

Check the hole where the actuator goes into the cabinet and insure you can see a gray oval shaped piece. If so take a small screw-driver, pen/pencil or something small enough to fit thru the small hole and try activating the switch by pushing it down ( machine must be in the agitate or spin cycle ). If you don't see it, the switch has likely broken loose and needs to be replaced.

If it start's to function than the switch is not being contacted properly by the actuator on the lid and likely is due to the switch being worn...unless the actuator on the lid is broke, if so there`s the problem.

Make sure the switch is being held in place via the two screws along the side, if they are loose tighten them, if it is broken, it will need to be replaced.

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

Washer wont go into spin mode or discharge the water


Check the lid switch or lid striker that operates the switch. lift the top lid and insert a pen or similar into the hole on the right hand side to operate the switch when in spin mode.
If not try shorting the switch temporary, the top part of the washer needs to be hinged back to gain access, to do this insert a flat blade 4" from each side at the seam with the front panel to release the clips, lid will now hinge back to give access to the internals, Isolate the supply and locate the lid switch on the underside of the top panel and remove the 2 wires and short out/ link together. test the spin cycle now should now work and also drain the machine (Draining only works when washer is spinning) If all ok obtain and install a new switch do not leave the switch shorted.
Note this switch only affects the spin and draining parts of the cycle.
Good luck

Washer wont drain or spin


assuming urs is a top load machine.....Top load washers are designed with an interlock switch that stops the machine if the lid is opened during a spin cycle. This switch is operated by a post mounted on the lid that goes into a hole in the rim of the machine and pushes down on the switch, or a bump on the side of the lid right by the hinge that presses against a switch when the lid is closed, or as on new whirlpool models, by the hinge itself inside the machine under the top panel.
Determine which type you have. If it is the type with a hole and post, get a screwdriver and stick it into the hole with the machine in the spin cycle and the knob pulled out. If the machine starts, then the post is missing or broken. I have seen people replace perfectly good washers for the sake of this $2.00 part.
if it doesnt work... please get back to us with the make and model number of ur unit...
regards iversh

The washer does not drain the water or spin. Does the drain work when the spin cycle starts?


pull end caps from both ends of back splash remove 2 screws flip control panel back...remove 2 clips(use screw driver to pry up)...disconnect wire plug lift lid put hands in opening pull the case to you and up to remove entire case...remove 2 screws that hold lid switch install new switch...(don't forget to plug the wire plug back in...ho ho

Washes fine will not spin and drain


Hi,
One of the main reasons for the washer not to spin or drain is the interlock switch. Top load washers are designed with an interlock switch that stops the machine if the lid is opened during a spin cycle. This switch is operated by a post mounted on the lid that goes into a hole in the rim of the machine and pushes down on the switch, or a bump on the side of the lid right by the hinge that presses against a switch when the lid is closed.
Determine which type you have. If it is the type with a hole and post, get a screwdriver and stick it into the hole with the machine in the spin cycle and the knob pulled out. If the machine starts, then the post is missing or broken.
If you have the other type of door interlock then the switch may not be working, but you will need a service call to fix it.
Would appreciate if you mentioned the model number of the washer.
Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com
