Major Appliances/Kenmore washer will not draining, after it agitates


Hi Eric,

Kenmore mod 110.23932200,  serial CM1807499, type 111.  Washer agitates, and when it normally would drain and spin, everything just quits.  Clothes are just soaking in washer full of water at that point.  I see a couple of similar questions you have answered, but it was not clear on those if the agitation was happening...mine is.  Hope you have an idea what the problem could be.  

Thank you!


Basically if the motor is not coming on I would still check the lid switch.  Depending on how they are wired, it actually may agitate with the lid open.  Check this first before I get deeper into this diagnosis....  Jump out the lid switch and lets eliminate this.  Thanks for your patience on this one.

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
