This is a symptom of a broken motor coupling. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

Many of the original motor couplings were all made of plastic. The center hole that mounts on the drive motor shaft would start to form cracks and eventually break. A new modified motor coupling was manufactured with a steel grommet to prevent this from happening. The link has the new part number at the bottom of the page. You can order this part online at searspartsdirect.com by typing in your model number and locating item number 13 under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor and Pump" heading. Or, take the part number provided to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part they do carry.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions or require additional assistance.

SOURCE: KENMORE 110 -LETS WATER IN..DOES NOT SPIN

Hello Sylvia,

You said,
HELLO...I HAVE A KENMORE 110 WASHER, LETS WATER IN BUT DOES NOT SPIN. PLEASE HELP. SYLVIA



It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

* The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


* The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small,
relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


* A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts.
If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


* The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed.
As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all.
If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified
appliance repair technician.


* The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor.
For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other.
It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other.
If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


* The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool®
have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective,
the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem,
you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


* The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized.
These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem,
you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety,
washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed.
The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up."


Bless You,
Please give me a good rating for the sound advice , before you sign off.
Thank You

SOURCE: kenmore washer...the water just runs it never fills up.

I have seen this problem numerous times on service calls. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. The key symptom is the wash tub that continously attempts to fill, but cannot achieve the proper water level. This is often caused by not having an air gap on your drain line, improper placement of the drain hose, or a standpipe that is too small in diameter. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

If you place the drain hose in the standpipe too far, or seal the top of the standpipe, this can cause a vacuum which will cause the symptoms you describe. A tell-tale sign will be a sucking noise as you pull the drain hose from the standpipe. Read through the link I provided. If this does not correct your problem please post back and let me know before you rate this solution. This way I can try to assist you further. I hope this corrects your problem.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22432100&pathTaken=partSearch

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the following Whirlpool Service manuals for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Assuming that it WILL spin, but not drain, the problem does point to either a pump or hose problem.

If you can hear the motor turning during the spin cycle, the pump should be working.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to / check the pump.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=134&osCsid=7eb3280b232f728490afcac4574c759e

If it will neither drain NOR spin, the problem points to the Lid Switch?

Irt sounds as if your pump is somewhat blocked.

Kenmore 70 series will not drain

I'm assuming that the washer will Agitate and Spin but will not drain.

Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet and pump on top load direct drive washers.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=134

Be aware that when you remove the hoses from the pump, any water in them will come out so you should have a bucket set to catch the water.

Check the hoses leading to and from the pump for any obstructions.

Check the shaft on the pump to verify that it will turn without any excessive side to side movement.

Try to look into the pump to see if anything is blocking the inlet and outlet areas.


If the washer will NEITHER drain nor spin, the problem is likely in either the timer, Lid Switch or transmission.

Re-post a question if that is the case with the full model number.

The water in my washing machine does not drain once it goes to the spin cycle. How do i get the water out and what do you think the problem is?


Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number?

Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Assuming that it does spin, the problem points to the drain pump and/or clogged hoses.

See the following on how to remove the cabinet and pump.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

Remove the hoses carefully and drain the water into a bucket or tub.

Check the hoses and look inside the pump (try to turn it by hand) to look for obstructions.

If it won't spin or drain, the first thing to check is the Lid Switch.

See the following on how to bypass the switch.

Check the discharge hoses and see if there is an obstruction in the pump itself.

WASHER FILL, NO PROBLEMS AGITATING, WHEN TIME


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is the Whirlpool PDF on installation and maintenance of direct drive washers. See the section on how to bypass the lid switch and on the transmission.

Following is an illustrated description of how to remove the cabinet on Kenmore / Whirlpool top load direct drive washers.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

Since it won't drain, the problem points to the lid switch. You already have the cabinet off so replacing the switch isn't too difficult.
The Sears site has the Sears (and probably Whirlpool) part number.

My washer is not spinning.


Sounds like the gearbox may have stripped out if it pumps the water out (motor is good as the same motor is used for the pump and the gearbox, pump on one end, gearbox on the other, of the motor.).

Go to Sears Parts Direct and type 110.22422 for the Model number, look at the exploded view for the agitator.

Washer fills/agitates and stops prior to draining


If pump works fine or still pumps out water, then it is a timer malfunction. Replace the timer and you should be fine. To locate a part number for your timer, refer to www3.sears.com with the model number off your washer.
