Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
My washer will fill with water, it will spin both ways during the wash cycle but when it goes to the spin cycle you can hear the machine draining the water but it does not spin. It will then go onto the rinse cycle where it will again spin both ways and then you can hear it start to drain and go into the final spin cycle but the machine does not spin for it. Help PLEASE!
My washer works fine until you get to the rinse cycle. It will not spin nor engage at all. I have to rinse my clothes manually!
Check the lid switch. Through out time the lid switch housing can come apart from years of heat and cold. When I checked mine, I found the glue deterriated and the housing came apart. What I did to fix it is I zipped tied the housing together and did a functional check and it worked.

Your machine should pause momentarily after water is extracted then start spin cycle. This should happen automaticly. If it doesn't? Try this, push timer button in and then pull it backout.If it begins to spin when you have done this you have a timer problem.The reason I say this is, there is a brake that is actuated as the machine agitates that requires a momentary stop of motor at the end of pump out to release spin brake.When you push timer button and stop machine. You are doing manually what timer should have done automaticly. If the machine has the pause and still does not spin the problem is the clutch-brake unit which would require a repairman. Hope this helps.
