Washer will not start after filling with water. Kenmore Series 80
Why will washer not start after filling up with water?
Many washing machines will fill with water while the lid is open, but the washing machine will not progress past this point until the lid is closed. If the lid is closed, check that the lid switch is not stuck into position or has not caught in place to close firmly. Wipe the switch or magnet with a clean, damp cloth to clean away anything that might interfere with the lid closing, and then dry with a towel.
The washing machine cannot progress to the agitation cycle if there is something caught in the pump or in between the tub and the housing. See if there is something lodged in the pump or between the edges if the washer cycle is correct. If an object is visible, disconnect power to the washing machine before trying to remove it, but do not hesitate to contact a service professional if the item cannot be reached or removed."
