Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Washer will wash but will not Rinse or Spin !
It sounds like you have a lid switch malfunction. The switch may be loose or not making good contact. As you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it.
Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number as "110.22832100" and the lid switch will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (part #3949238). The lid strike is listed as item 20 (part #350733). You may also check repairclinic.com. They carry the SAME parts and sometimes offer a better price.

This is a simple and inexpensive repair if you wish to accomplish this on your own. This total repair will cost you a little more than $40. Let me know if you suspect you have other problems. Sometimes the timer can cause certain segments of the wash cycle not to work as well, but this generally is a bit more expensive, and not as common. The lid switch is a more common problem, because of the repeated use it gets while opening and closing the lid. The switch just simply wears out. I hope this helps you.
