Try it in all the timer cycles. If it still does it then your transmission might need to be inspected. It is a simple design. Remove the agitator and then yank out the tranny. Remove the clutch and transmission cover. Inspect the main drive gear and the spin pawl beneath it.The main drive gear show in this 30 sec video is plastic (click on the link). The new gear comes with a matching pinion for around 75 bucks. More HERE

I have a kenmore washer model 110.22994. It fills with water but does not agitate. How do I start to identify the problem? The problem started after a friend loaded the machine with heavy jeans.


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 the Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers with a troubleshooting section.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


The first thing to check is to try the washer on a different cycle.

Then make sure that it will drain and spin.

If it will work on a different cycle, the problem points to the timer.

If it still won't agitate and it WON'T drain or spin the problem points to the Lid Switch

If it will neither agitate, or spin but will drain, the problem points to the Motor Coupler.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer model #110 and won't agitate


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23912100

Also see the Whirlpool (Kenmore) Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.

I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.

Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.

These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.

Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.

Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.


No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.

Kenmore 70 series washer


to answer your first problem,

if it wont stop filling, then the pressure switch is either defective,
or the hose that is attached to the drum to the pressure switch was either pulled out or had an opening either it breaks or it cracks.

that would not transfer the filling mode to agitate mode.

the second problem that it wont drain and spin now is another issue but might be resolve if you solve the first problem.

tnx 4 using fixya,
