Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont 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

Kenmore Series 70 washer keeps spinning when you open the lid, is this the correct operation? Also, the washer is always moving around when in the spinning cycle, is something worn out or what?


If the machine keeps spinning if the lid is open then the lid switch has failed. This is the safety device that prevents injury from people reaching in and getting hurt when the machine is in operation.

My washer wont spin, it washes but then it wont start the spin cycle.....please help


what is the model number and the brand name?most likely you have a bad lid switch.it's a saftey on most washers,the factory doesn't want the washer to run when it's in spin so if you were to open the lid while it was spinning the washer would shut down,if the lid switch is broke it's like the lid is open and it won't spin or run

I have a kenmore washer model 110.82467800. It won't drain or spin. It does everything else but it won't drain or spin.


Hi,

This is most likely due to the lid switch being bad. The machine is designed not to go into drain or spin with the lid open, if the lid switch is bad, the machine may think the lid is open. Here is a link to a video that shows how to replace the lid switch.

No Spin

Washer fills and does the wash cycle then stops. doesnt rinse or spin


Most likely your lid switch is broken on the washer. I(t acts as a safety mechanism to stop the tub during spin should you open the lid.)
The switch is located under the top of the washer on the right side of the lid opening. It is activated by a plastic strike on the same side of the lid.

My Roper Washer RTW43405Q0 won't spin.


For the washer to operate the lid must be fully closed, the timer must be pulled out, and the water must be drained.
The main causes for not spinning are:
  • Lid partially or completely open
  • Lid or other object has hit the timer knob and turned the washer off
  • Lid not locked (by the way, not on all washers) and may be not draining.

    Make sure the lid is completely closed. Make sure that no clothing is in the lid area.

    Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.



    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Hope this works.....

    Loses power in spin cycle


    First lid must be down before washer start spinning. Remove any obstructions in drain hose and or straighten drain hose to remove kinks. Lid or other object hit timer knob and turned the washer off - Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    If the lid was opened with too much force when adding clothes, it may have hit the timer knob, pushing the knob in.
    If a laundry basket or other object hit the Timer knob, the Timer knob may have been pushed in shutting the washer off.
    Washer lid is not locked (Not on All Washers) - The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.
    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Use a flashlight to inspect the holes in tub for foreign objects like screws, nails, bra wires, etc. and remove if present.

    Water is now filling, washing going round in drum but not rinsing or spinning.


    Spinning and Rinsing require a safety switch to be enabled by the closing of the washers lid.

    Check around your lid and washer lid opening to find the mechanism that is used to activate the safety switch mounted just under the lid opening inside your machine. Sometimes it is a plastic plunger(protrusion) on the lid that mates with and opening(hole) in the machine around the lid opening to cause this switch to close. Other times it is on the hinge side of the
    lid and the protrusion is formed right into the metal of the lid itself to push a plunger on the hinge side to close this safety switch.

    Most spinning problems on machines are cause by this lid safety switch. Washing machines cannot spin if the lid is not closed and this safety switch is not working to switch power to the spinning motor.

    Need to replace Lid Switch for Maytag Atlantis 2002 Washer


    Hello, I can help you.


    Let me explain to you how the Maytag washer lid switch works.
    The lid switch is located on the controls panel, and is activated by opening and closing the washer door. The purpose of the lid switch is to prevent the washer from working with the door open.


    It is a safety device to prevent the user from sticking their hands inside of the washer while the washer is agitating or spinning.


    When the washer lid switch stops working, the result could be that the washer won't wash, drain, spin and in some cases the washer will not work at all.

    You will need a multimeter to check the internal contacts on the washer lid switch.


    You will also need to use the wiring schematic to see what contact should be close when the lid switch supposed to be on.


    You will need to remember that the Maytag washer lid switch is one of the first parts that you will need to check, when the washer don't want to start filling, agitating, draining or spinning.
