I just spent the last 4 hours troubleshooting and fixing the washer\/dryer I bought today :)<br><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-777" title="5Lf5Nb5H23F53L63H7bcvd9c6e63ee5511dd8" src="\/\/cdn.joejiko.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2012\/01\/5Lf5Nb5H23F53L63H7bcvd9c6e63ee5511dd81.jpg" alt="" width="224" height="300" \/><br>Will & I went to pick it up from a family in St. Pete after finding their offer on craigslist. We got there and it looked great! They didn't have the washer\/dryer hookups so I got them to drop the price. I thought, "their house looks nice.. the outside and inside of the washer\/dryer are in good condition. everything will probably be OK". Roberto hooked up the power so we could see that the dryer got hot and didn't squeak.<br>Well, we got home. Unloaded and installed the appliance. Started a test run. It went through the first few cycles and then STOPPED. I looked in the drum and all the water was just sitting there. For some reason it didn't want to drain the water or start the spin cycle! Oh nooo! I jumped straight to Google of course. Called my dad. After all my research, I narrowed it down to the pump (since the major symptom appeared to be the water not draining). I looked up the parts and instructions. Oh well, $35 and easy to swap out. Then it hit me! What if the lid switch is bad? What if it's stopping because the machine thinks the lid is still open.<br>The problem ended up being the lid switch. I took the washer apart, pulled out the switch, cut the wires and spliced them. Then put everything back together and.. Bingo! Works flawlessly.<br><img class="wp-image-775 size-large" title="kenmore 110.88752793 bad lid switch" src="\/\/cdn.joejiko.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2012\/01\/2012-01-01_20-18-12_249-1024x577.jpg" alt="kenmore 110.88752793 bad lid switch" width="660" height="372" \/><br><img class="size-large wp-image-776" title="tools to fix a bad lid switch on a kenmore 110" src="\/\/cdn.joejiko.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2012\/01\/2012-01-01_20-18-22_315-1024x577.jpg" alt="tools to fix a bad lid switch on a kenmore 110" width="584" height="329" \/><br>I now feel at least 10 points more manly. What a great way to start the new year!
