Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

Kenmore 70 series washer

My washer will not stop filling, nor will it switch to the agitate mode. I was able to get it to drain and spin, but now even that will not work. Any ideas?

    After looking at the tubes and then going back to the site and reading all the problems and solutions on this machine, and trying many different solutions, we finally seem to have gotten it up and running for the time being. I believe we will need a new washer soon regardless of the fixes, but getting it running this time at least buys us some time to save for a new machine.



    Thanks

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,

Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.


I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
