Does your Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine no longer stop spinning when the lid is opened? Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machines are susceptible to a range of problems that could prevent them from ceasing to spin when the lid is opened. Check the following causes to identify and solve the problem.
Cause 1: Faulty Lid Switch
If your washing machine does not stop operating when you open the lid, the lid switch is likely faulty. Use the Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine Lid Switch Replacement Guide to replace your washing machine’s faulty lid switch.
Cause 2: Faulty Door or Lid Latch Assembly
If the washer’s lid or door won’t lock, the machine’s switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem as the lock and switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohmmeter for continuity. According to their design, the switches should have continuity. If there is no continuity in any of the electrical switches, the culprit wire will need to be replaced.
Cause 3: Faulty Door Lock
If the washing machine’s door won’t latch, the door lock assembly may be faulty. The door lock assembly is generally made of plastic, so if it is broken, it will need to be replaced.
Cause 4: Faulty Main Control Board
If the washing machine’s door refuses to unlock, the problem may be with the main control board. If you have tried the previous solutions and the problem persists, use the Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine Electronic Control Replacement Guide to inspect and replace the main control board, if necessary.
