Hi Amy,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

You did not mention whether or not the washer drained. The first thing I recommend is checking the drain pump. Here is a video that demonstrates gaining access to the drain pump; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The washer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same. Make sure the drain pump and drain hoses are not clogged or restricted. The remaining checks will require the use of a multi meter. If you have a meter and are confident in your technical abilities please reply below and I will be happy to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Thanks Landell. I went ahead and had a repairman out yesterday to look at it. The pump AND the motor were dead, so I'm currently awaiting delivery of my new washer.

Hi Marcus,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

By what you have stated, it sounds like a lid switch failure. The lid switch has to be closed for the drain and spin cycle on your washer to work. If the lid switch is faulty, it will fill and wash but nothing else. A quick check you can do is to bypass the lid switch and see if it will drain. If the washer operates, the lid switch (part number 3949247) needs to be replaced.

To bypass the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. Here is a video that will demonstrate gaining access to the lid switch; Video . Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated piece of wire between the two colored wires (see image below), not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the bypass make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. Start the washer in a drain cycle. If the washer drains and spins, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the bypass in place while you are waiting for the part. This is only for the test.

The instructions for replacing the lid switch are in the video provided.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the washer motor will run when the timer is placed in the drain and spin cycles then the lid switch is Okay.

If the washer will actually agitate then the motor coupler is okay. If the motor is running but there is no agitation then the motor coupler is likely broken.

If the unit is running during the spin cycles and the basket is not spinning then the failure is likely a worn clutch or a broken brake release lever on the basket drive.

I added a YouTube video showing how to access and replace the clutch and brake release lever

Reply with addition details if needed for further assistance.
