Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Kenmore series 70 Washer will not drain. It fills and agitates but when it reaches the drain cycle it just stops. It doesn't appear to be the lid switch as I hear a clicking when I close the lid. Help? Love this washer and don't want to get rid of it if it is something minor I can repair.

Possible fault with the controller unit if there is no power to the drain pump at the time of the drain cycle. You need to check the power on the drain pump at this time, if there is power then remove the drain pump and reset, if not the controller unit output is absent and is a suspect.

Fix it. Very easy fix and the part is not expensive. What you have is a direct drive motor. For ease of maintenance the machine is made in a way which makes it possible to service it in place without having to move it. You flip the controls up and pop the retaining clips in back, unplug the lid switch harness and tip the case towards you an out of the way. You can now access the pump, motor, and that pesky drive coupling. These do simply wear out but they usually will go if a comforter is washed in it or low water big load scenario.ea74271.jpg

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle


if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.

Have kenmore 70 series washer model #20702991 ser #1069231 type 111 will not drain. It starts the cycle by agitating then stops and will not go to drain cycle. switch on top lid does not ckick, tried...


The lid switch must close for the washer to spin. I've seen a lot of these break where it's mounted to the top. You may still be able to reach under the top to grab the switch to close it and get it to drain. You'll almost certainly need to replace the lid switch.
