    Question Kenmore Washer Won't Spin

    110 925 88210

    he machine fills up, washes/agitates, and you can hear the timer working. When it is time to spin it doesn't drain nor spin. At that point you can not hear the timer working.

    Thanks in advance.

    You think I have a lid switch problem.

    Jeff, before you posted I was searching through the archives. I searched before I posted. I saw many of your posts. The giving away of your expertise. Tirelessly. Thank you sir for your giving. I give how I can.

    You nailed it Jeff. Too funny, I am a dumbazz. A month or so ago I had lid switch problems. I stuck a screw driver in it and ran with "lid open". Imagine my surprise when I removed the lid switch and saw that it was tie wrapped/zip tied. It had been repaired.

    What is that switch for ? Government mandate ?

    Again, thanks for your help. The link to the part I might need .... I am sure you recommend that outlet.

    What is that switch for ?
    Yes, a safety. Older machines stopped the spin and drain from working....many newer ones also stopped the agitation.....and now the newest ones lock so you cannot open the lid at all during the cycle.

    Again, thanks for your help.
    Your welcome

    Just thought I would add this. The switch may have been 'repaired' with the zip tie. That being said, I will often zip tie new switches when I install them. I do this because they do come unglued sometimes.
