Kenmore Washer 11022442100 wont spin or rinse

model #110.22442100 Kenmore top load automatic washer.
The process of my washer is to 1) fill with water, 2) then washes, 3) then rinse, 4) then spin.
The washer fills with water, washes but when it clicks spin off the water to proceed to the rinse cycle it didn't. If i move the cycle selector to rinse it begins as if it's washing again. It will not spin off the wash water. When i place the cycle selector to spin then pull it out to start it nothing happens. I have tried the manual for troubleshooting but still nothing.

does this mean the timer is gone?

This type of problem is usually caused by a failed lid switch. Replacing that component will likely fix this problem based on your symptoms.

You can

unplug the washer

and access the lid switch as shown in the image below. You can use the procedure shown at the bottom of that image to place an


jumper wire in the harness of the lid switch to see if the motor will run in the drain and spin mode with this switch bypassed. The wire colors going to the lid switch on your washer will be different (probably tan and gray). The basic procedure is the same.

If the washer runs in the spin mode with this switch bypassed then the lid switch will definitely need to be replaced. You can order a new lid switch from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. The part number for the lid switch is 3949238. Here is a direct link for that part:

Lid switch


If the washer still won't spin with the lid switch bypassed, you could have a problem with the timer, the motor or the wiring between components.

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

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:
