Question and Answers

Q:

Washer stopped during rinse cycle

A:

Thank you for your question. By what you have stated, it sounds like a lid switch failure. The lid switch on most models 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 jump the lid switch and see if it will drain. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the two colored wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper 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 jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for that are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image.

Thank you for the question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the washer. If the washer was making a noise in spin, I suspect it was coming from the tub bearing. The tub bearing will make a grinding or growling noise when it is going bad. Then eventually it will get bad enough that the washer will leak and the bearing can lock up. By what you have stated, this is what I suspect happened. To replace the bearing and seal kit the washer has to be completely disassembled and requires some special tools. I recommend having a service technician do this repair. I have checked on the cost of the bearing and seal and total cost is $160.00 and roughly $150.00 for labor. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Depending on the condition of the washer, you might want to consider purchasing a new washer. Please click on this link to view the washers we have to offer.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the washer.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
