[Video] How To Fix Kenmore Washer Not Draining – Do It Yourself

It’s Sunday and before you know it, the day will be drawing night.

You’ve been busy all week with work and kids’ activities. You are running around mumbling to yourself, “I have to get

a load of laundry in your beloved Kenmore washer”. Even if it’s just a vital piece of clothing, like the kids uniform for tomorrow’s

soccer practice. It’s approaching 7:00pm, you just got your oldest kid to bed, thinking about dreaded Monday, you dashed to the laundry room, grab whites and colors alike and cram your (model number 110.28632701) Kenmore top load washer.

Maybe yo add some detergent and maybe you didn’t:)

You close the washer lid in a haste- but without realizing it, you accidentally slammed the lid, or the lid slipped your grasp. You

turn your  washer setting to a quick wash. After unloading the dishwasher of clean dishes and reloading, you darted back to the

laundry room to check on your Kenmore washer. You raise the washer lid and the water is just sitting there. Your kenmore washer did not drain.    

Just before the spin cycle, your machine decided to quit on you.

Well, why? you ask yourself. You weren’t nice to your washer. you slammed the lid and broke the lid switch, remember?

By accidentally slamming your Kenmore washer lid, the lid switch body cracks causing the internal switch to fail and

does not tell the washer that the lid is closed.

For you do-it-yourselfers, this is an easy fix and you can do this while the tub is still filled with water.

Firstly, remove the screws from the control panel end caps, the the 2 springs that connect the control panel to the

cabinet. The lid switch  part number is 3949238


Sears Kenmore does not make their own appliances, whether it be washers, dryers, and refrigerators.

These kenmore appliances are manufactured by either Whirlpool, General electric, Maytag, or Electrolux.
