SOURCE: Kenmore 20722 Motor Coupler or Cluch assembly?

Its easy to check the coupler, i would do that first to make sure then if its ok , well clutch. Kenmores, a.k.a. whirlpool's , are very common to have both problems. Just remove da pump and hoses, then remove the motor and check the coupler.

SOURCE: Kenmore,Top load, series70 agitates in all Wash

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.

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.

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.

Hello The washing machine is not going through


The lid switch has failed. It will not spin because it is a safety device.

Goes thru agitate cycle then stops - no drain of water, no spin. Control dial does not advance but manual advance also not result in drain or spin. Position of dial on agitate area results in agitation.


If the drain pump is not operating correctly, the cycle will not continue. Also, sometimes the pump has something jammed in it, and may just need to be unclogged.

Changing the spin dial


I was just trying the same thing. I have a kenmore 80 series that wont even start to fill. i thought maybe the dial component was broke so i wanted to take it out. it was held on by a screw. I am not sure if there is a certain position the knob must be in, but mine turned counterclockwise. i have a feel for things like this so i might have done something else out of instict. but it is held on by a screw.
