Kenmore Washer Only Spins By Itself on Final Spin Cycle
My 7 year old Kenmore washer started acting up 2 years ago. It sometimes wouldn't start the 1st spin cycle. So we figured out to just open and close the lid to start the 1st spin cycle and then it would work fine the rest of the cycles. But one day it quit spinning completely and nothing seemed to work so I replaced the timer. That fixed it back to where we had to open and close the lid to start the 1st spin cycle which is where we still are today. If we do not open and close the lid, the water will still drain out of the washer, the timer will still move, the rinse cycles will still spray water, but it just won't spin on its own until the last spin cycle. I never checked the lid switch but if that were it, it seems like the washer wouldn't work at all. Any ideas? Thanks!
