kenmore 90 series washer wont spin or drain. Model # 110.28972890

My kenmore 90 series washer does not drain or spin. It will rinse on an occasional cycle but not on all. Is this a lid switch or something else? Thanks.

hi marc,

thank you for submitting a question to manage my life.

from your description this issue is most likely being caused by a bad lid switch. the lid switch has to be closed for the washer to drain. if the lid switch is faulty, it will fill and agitate but nothing else. a quick check you can do is to run a cycle with the lid switch bypassed. if the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

to bypass the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. here is a video that demonstrates gaining access to the lid switch; video . once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. place an insulated jumper between the gray and tan wires (see image below), not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. the red arrows indicate where you need to place the bypass and the green arrows indicate where the lid switch is connected in the washer. after inserting the jumper, make sure it will not touch anything metal. i recommend covering it with electrical tape.

after ensuring that the lid switch bypass is secure, plug the washer in. then start the washer in a cycle, and let it go. if the washer completes the cycle, you need to replace the lid switch. do not leave the jumper in place and continue using the washer while you are waiting for the part. the jumper is for testing purposes only.

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 .
