Question and Answers

Q:

remove tub on washer model 11020902990

A:

I have checked the model number you have submitted. The agitator on your model has a plastic nut securing the top portion of the agitator. To remove this nut you have to us a 1/2 inch drive extension. The top of the nut should have a 1/2 recessed square. Put the extension in the square and turn it counterclockwise. Once that nut is removed, you can lift the top portion off. You should see the stud that holds the bottom portion of the agitator on. To remove the bottom portion of the agitator take that stud out.

The spin basket is secured with a spanner nut. They make a special tool called a spanner wrench to remove this nut. I have seen some customers use a large pair of cannel lock pliers to remove the spanner nut. I have provided you with an image of the spanner wrench below. If you would like to order the spanner wrench, the part number is 14218862.

Once you have removed the spanner nut the spin basket should lift right out. After cleaning the tub, set the spin basket back in the tub. When you reinstall the spanner nut, make sure you get it tight. If the spanner nut is not tight enough, the spin basket will spin on the drive block and cause damage to the drive block and basket drive.

I recommend tying to clean the washer with a product called washer magic before you remove the spin basket. Washer magic can be purchased from us by clicking on the following link. Washer magic

I have also provided you with the instructions for removing the cabinet and spin basket below. If you need further assistance, please submit more details below.

Q:

Kenmore washer model 11020902990. how to fix spin cycle

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details, the lid switch is likely broken or faulty. If the lid switch fails, the washer will not operate in any drain and spin cycles.

I added a video showing the procedure of accessing and replacing the lid switch . NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

The lid switch #3949238 for Kenmore washer model 110.20902990 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

Kenmore washer model 11020902990 overfills during rinse cycle.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

It would be very unusual for the washer to over fill in the rinse fills and not over fill in the wash fills. If it has never over filled in the wash fills and you not stopping the washer after it fills to let the clothes soak, then I would have to suspect a faulty timer. If you do let the washer fill and then you shut it off and let it soak, it could over fill due to the slight amount of air pressure trapped in the air hose connected to the water level pressure switch can leak out and then cause the washer to over fill once it is started. There is only one water level pressure switch which controls the water level for wash fills and rinse fills. Once the water level is met, the water level pressure switch opens and breaks the contact to stop the filling cycles. So, if you are not shutting the washer off to let clothes soak and it has never overfilled in the wash fills, then the timer is likely faulty. The timer is only going to advance once the water level has been met and pressure switch trips to shut the water off. 

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
