Question about Kenmore 22442 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore 22442 not spinning unless you physically help it along

I have a 6 year old (I think) kenmore 22442 top loading washer. And it seems that recently, you have to go in during the final spin cycle and give the basket a good spin to get it started and then it seems to go fine. Otherwise the clothes is dripping wet.
Please Help

Sounds like a worn belt problem!

Electronic problem. just call service.

I have a kenmore top load high efficiency washer. When i press start it acts like its going to start then it unlocks and won't wash.


My problem is similar to one posted top. My HE Kenmore washer stopped in the middle of the cycle. I repaired the latch lock, thinking that would solve my problem, but now it will start the cycle, and stall at the rinse setting. I have to physically set it to rinse and spin, and sometimes that doesn't even work. Washer will be two years old this August. I have NEVER had a problem with a Sears washer, and I am VERY disappointed in this one. My last two gave me twenty years of service without a repair. Maybe Sears needs to go back to making theirs in the USA.

Believe that my problem can be fixed with a belt replacement but cannot figure out how to get washing machine apart in order to replace. Kenmore 22442 top loader.


this video shows step by step how to replace the MOTOR COUPLER which the manufacture of that washer has used instead of a belt for about 15 years now

Part number for that coupler as shown in the video is 285753A

How do I replace a lid switch on a kenmore heavy duty washer model # 22442 my switch is in pieces


I just stuck a wooden clothes pin in the hole to keep the little level in check. My landlord's washer had that problem and he didn't want to pay to fix it. It ran great for many more years after I stuck the wooden clothes pin in it.

My washing machine will not spin or agitate


Does the washing machine empty as normal? I am assuming it does and think the brushes on the motor could be worn. Hope this helps.

Kenmore 70 series will not drain or spin


It sounds like the lid switch. If it ws the coupler the water would drain. Check to see if the lid switch is clicking when you put the lid down. replace the lid switch. You have a great washer. Fairly cheap fix.

Kenmore 90 series slow spin


You need a repairperson. It is probably a belt or a switch problem.
