SOURCE: ultimate care 2 wont drain or high spin. does agitate ok

Try pushing down on the lid, if the machine starts to drain and spin you need to adjust the hinge on the lt side. To do this you need to take the screws most of the way out on the back of the control panel ( on the end caps). Then remove the spring clamps that hold the cabinet onto the base. Use a screwdriver into the front of the clamp and press to the back of the machine, then unhook the connector for the lid switch. Pull the cabinet forward and you will be able to see the hinge, use a channel lock or pliers to bend the end of the hinge towards the back of the machine, the lid will need to be open to adjust the hinge. it will only take a small adjustment. After adjusting shut the lid and listen for the click to see if it was enough. Hope this helps

The lid switch, get something to hold it down to make machine work. Turn machine on and push down on lid.

SOURCE: washer fills,agitates butstops instead of going into the drain an

Most likely it's the door switch that tells the washing machine that the door is open or closed.
It's usually on a lever of some sort as to not get the actual switch wet that contacts the door itself.
With the older machines in particular, they didn't find filling or agitating as dangerous. Only spinning was considered that way, so it could fill and agitate with the door open and spin only when it was closed. When it spins, it also turns the impeller (pump) in the direction to pump the water out.

The other possibility is that the transmission or motor has gone bad. The motor and transmission turn in one direction for agitation and in the opposite direction for spin. If the gears have stripped in the transmission or one of the primary windings has gone on the motor, it simply won't turn in that direction.

Hello,

When ya say after filling "the washer stops" does that mean it is not making any sorta sound?? if it is the transmission,agitator block,or evena stripped gear you will hear the motor running yet it will not agaitate and from reading your question i think it says their is no sounds yet instead it fills then just sits their silent,is that so??

If yes their is no sounds it could be in the area of the timer where the problem lies, since it will drain/spin i am exluding the motor, lid switch or belt as the problem.

If it does make sounds yet just wont agitate it could be a stripped agitator block, or stripped gear but,the belt would be ok since it spins

Replaced the belt and still not agitating, switch seems good


If the machine fills, won't agitate, wont drain or spin, then you need to replace the lid switch.
if machines fills, wont agitate, will drain but not spin, then you need to replace the motor coupling

Agitator doesn't agitate. Fills, spins and drains


Unfortunately, that sounds like a transmission issue. Power is getting to the trans, or it wouldn't spin, but the other part of the trans that causes agitation is broken.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.

The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.
