I have a Kenmore 80 series clothes washer that won't drain or spin; however, it will agitate. I have verified nothing is clogging the hoses. The lid switch is still clicking and is completely intact (not splitting apart).

My question is how to determine whether the problem is the drain pump or the lid switch (I don't currently have a multimeter). If it was the drain pump, would the washer make a sound like it's attempting to do something when it came time to drain? It doesn't do anything--it just stops.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi,

Can you get it to drain/spin in any cycle at all?

Correct, if your drain pump was the problem the motor would hum, but no run.

So you will need to get a multimeter and ohm test your lid switch.

When you click the link to the lid switch below, there will be two videos, one showing HOW TO access/replace it. The other video shows HOW TO ohm test it for continuity.

Here's the lid switch for your model:

Let us know what you find.
