    Default Stackable washer won't spin

    Model Number: 417.93802200
    Brand: Sears Kenmore

    Hello all...

    I have a Kenmore stackable that will go through all the cycles, but will not drain or spin. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Adam,

    Does it make any sound when it goes into drain spin?

    If not, then It sounds like your lid/lock switch is bad.

    From www.applianceaid.com
    remove these screws and pull down on the front panel to remove it.



    To see if its bad:
    Just jump the 2 wires together that connects to your lid switch. Turn the power off first, then turn it on and try it.

    Here's the lid/lock switch for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer's Number: 134101800

    Thanks Jake. It does not make any sound once it gets to the spin cycle, nor does the timer advance past that point. Also it will not lock the washer door. Does that change anything? I really appreciate your help!

    My wife reminded me that the switch works in the aspect that it stops the aggitation when the door is opened. If there were a problem with the locking mechanism, would we still have the same problem?

    The only way to tell for sure is to jump it like I said, if after that it doesn't drain/spin, then its likely the timer.
