I bought my model 25862 in May, 2005. The only thing that has ever gone wrong is the plastic gear that runs the agitator on heavy duty broke. My husband ordered and replaced for under $30.00

How to remove top of washer ?

This assumes that you have a basic top load / direct drive washer:

See the following:

Cold water wont work

Are you saying that the machine is not letting cold water into the machine? If so, the problem has to deal with the cold water inlet valve. Disconnect the cold water supply line at the machine, check to see if there is the screens are blocked with debri.

If it is ok, it's probally the water inlet valve which is the problem. It is an easy part to purchase at any appliance supply house or online. Hope this helps you.

Kenmore 80 Series Model 110-25862 that won't start wash cycle

Check your lid switch. This is the most common cause of the problem you are experiencing. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

This is a very simple and inexpensive repair that you can do without the assistance of a repairman. The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare. The part number for a replacement for your washer is 3949238.

NOTE: You DO NOT need to drain the washer to replace the lid switch. Once a defective switch is replaced, the washer will drain.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

Broken Washer

it could be the direct drive coupling that connects the motor to the transmission. fill it up with water and see if it will agitate, if it will NOT agitate then it is a good chance that this is the problem. 0404472.jpg

worse case scenario is the transmission is bad, but this is unlikely.
