Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer
I am assuming that you washer is agitating, right? If it is...and, your symptoms are: normal fill, agitate, but when it gets ready to spin, the washer stops - this is usually a symptom of a defective lid switch. Try opening and closing the washer lid, you should hear a distinctive clicking noise as the lid closes. This will activate the lid switch, which will control the timer and all other functions. The lid switches come in two basic types for Kenmore:
1. It will be located on the right-hand side of the lid opening as a small slot with a plunger from the lid activating it as it closes.
2. It will be located on the left-hand side of the lid opening in the back with a rod on the lid hinge activating the switch.
This is a fairly common problem that can be easily fixed. The switch usually costs about $35.
If this sounds like the symptoms you are having, let me know and I can determine what part number you might need, and give you advice on how to fix it.
If not, please post back with comments and elaborate in a little more detail. I hope this helps you.
