Anonymous asked 5 years ago
We have a 12 year old Kenmore 80 series washer that quit in the middle of a cycle last night. It will agitate but it will not spin or drain. About a year ago a repairman told us it would probably give out in 6-12 months because of the age of the belt and that we should just buy a new one. My question is whether the problem we’re having us a belt issue and is it worth fixing? Thanks!

If the washer agitates, then most likely the belt is fine. <br><br>Your issue sounds like the lid switch may be bad. <br><br>The small button the lid presses when the lid is shut may be burnt out or possibly it has fallen off the bracket. <br><br>Do some research on HOW TO REPLACE A LID SWITCH ON A KENMORE 80 SERIES TOP LOADER WASHER.<br><br>You can find a replacement lid switch online for around 30 dollars.
