Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore dryer #118 73932101 will not heat

A:

The model number that you provided appears to be slightly off. I recommend that you recheck that model number.

That failure that you are describing could be caused by a failed motor relay, a bad connection of the start sense wire or a bad electronic control board in the console of the dryer. Here is a link for a previous answer that will probably help you with this type of failure: What causes Kenmore 90 plus Series Gas dryer to not stay running after the start button is pushed?

If you need more help, reply with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore dryer (after rechecking it).

Q:

I have kenmore washer model o 118 88732793 it won't spin or drain, what should I do?

A:

Thank you for your question. I have checked the model number you have submitted. Your model will not drain and/or spin if the lid switch is defective. If you listen carefully, a properly working lid switch will make a faint clicking noise when the lid is opened and closed. If you do not hear the faint clicking of the lid switch, it is likely broken.

You could also check the lid switch with an ohmmeter. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the washer below. To check the lid switch make sure the washer is unplugged. Then remove the wire connector to the lid switch. Turn the meter to check ohms and place your meter leads on the lid switch terminals. When the lid is closed, your read should be 0 ohms. If you do not get a 0 ohm reading, the lid switch is defective.

If you do not have an ohmmeter, you can use an insulated jumper. Place the jumper wire into the lid switch connector bypassing the lid switch. The jumper should not touch the green ground wire. This will create a short. Then make sure the wires are not touching and metal and plug the washer in. turn the timer to a spin cycle and pull out on the knob. If the washer starts, the lid switch needs to be replaced. Do not leave the jumper in place. The lid switch should be replaced because it is a safety feature.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

My kenmore elite washer will not spin during the spin cycle

A:

If the washer stops completely and will not spin or drain the water, then you could have a bad lid switch as described in the link for a previous answer that James R. provided in the above response. The first image below shows how to open the cabinet of this washer to access that component. I recommend that you unplug the washer and place an insulated jumper wire in the lid switch harness as shown in the bottom of the image. Reassemble and test the washer. If it spins with the lid switch bypassed in this manner, then replacing the lid switch will fix your problem. You can order a new lid switch from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 8054980. Here is a direct link for that part: Lid switch .

If the washer drains the water but does not spin, you can check to see if it agitates properly. If it does not agitate or spin but does drain the washer, then the motor coupler (part 285753A) is probably broken. The second image shows how to access this component.

If the washer drains and agitates properly, then you could have a bad transmission, a control board problem, a failed basket drive, a worn clutch or a number of other failures that could prevent it from spinning. The third image shows how to access the other components in the drive system. A service technician will normally need to diagnose and repair this type of problem unless you can use the information in the third image to access the components and find the failure.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
