Hey guys,

I have the common problem of my Kenmore not draining or spinning. I had a pillow in it yesterday and when it began the spin cycle it sounded like it was trying to leave my condo. After turning it off, I can't get through the whole wash cycle. Like I said it stops at either rinse or spin, not sure with the dial. I'm assuming I'll have to check the lid switch. I don't know how to get the machine open other than the panel above the washer. How do I open it to get to everything and how do I check to find out whats wrong?

It could stop the timer from progressing at that point, yes.

** How do I open it to get to everything **

The washer front panel comes off (look for screws at its base) and the wash top should hinge up once the clips holding it down at the front are released.

** how do I check to find out whats wrong? **

The lid switch should be able to be tested for continuity or inspected for physical damage.

ahh yes, the switch is broken. The plastic piece has cracked off. I'll replace and go from there. Thank you for saving me the hundreds in a service call.
