Hi, when I bought my house three years ago there was a top loading Kenmore Fabric Ultra Care I washing machine in the basement. It worked OK but not great. Last night I put a load of washing in but left the lid open. a hour and a half or so later I went to remove the clothes from the washer and smelled an electrical burning smell and the found the washer w/ the tub full of water. The agitator works but the tub won't spin. I believe there is a safety switch that blocks the tub from spinning when the lid is open. It probably burned out a switch due to the lid being left open.
I wonder if it's worth while calling Sears too repair the machine or should I buy another top loading washing machine. After reading the reviews in Consumer Reports I don't want to buy a front loading machine. Where else can I find recommendations for washing machines? I failed to mention I had the original documentation for the machine but misplaced it. Still might find it though.
Should I post this message in another group?
