Correct model # 110.24642300
my washer will not spin on it's own - the motor runs, the knob turns, but it does not spin. it will spin if i turn the knob to spin (i've been doing that for months). i also noticed, when this happens, that the knob is about a 1/4 of an inch before the spin cycle should start. i was told it sounded like the timer - i replaced it and it's doing the same thing. could the timer be installed wrong or can it be adjusted? please help. thank you.
I have a Kenmore 80 series mode #2289400. It will wash but will not drain and spin. I have turned the knob to a different spin cycle put it won't spin. I have drained the water out of the tub thru the drain pipe so it's not plugged. When it's ready to spin and it making no noice. Any help would be great.

try turning the knob just a bit at a time and see if you can get the spin cycle to start. if you get it to start spinning it means the timer has failed. if you are a handy girl, you can change the timer yourself. you need the information from the machine information label to get the correct timer. you need the make______________________ model_________________ serial number____________________

First lid must be down before washer start spinning. Remove any obstructions in drain hose and or straighten drain hose to remove kinks. Lid or other object hit timer knob and turned the washer off - Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out. If the lid was opened with too much force when adding clothes, it may have hit the timer knob, pushing the knob in.
If a laundry basket or other object hit the Timer knob, the Timer knob may have been pushed in shutting the washer off. Washer lid is not locked (Not on All Washers) - The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock. Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.
If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin. Use a flashlight to inspect the holes in tub for foreign objects like screws, nails, bra wires, etc. and remove if present.
It could be a timer, motor or wiring problem. You would need to check for 110 volts at the timer or motor when in the higher spin mode. If you are getting 110v you have a bad motor. No or low volts you have a bad timer. The motor is either a 2 or 3 speed motor and you would have to determine which winding to check for the 110v. The schematic is usually glued to the inside rear cabinet. Please rate this post.
Possibly a lid switch. The washer shouldn't spin if it thinks the lid is open. Possibly a wiring issue. Check the wiring to the motor. If those check out it could be a problem with the timer. Sometimes bad contacts in a timer can be checked by turning the washer on in the spin cycle where it should be working and wiggling the timer shaft up and down and around without turning the knob. If the washer starts and stops, you've got a bad timer.
If the timer is advancing but won't spin out, it is possible that the spin contacts inside the timer are faulty. A technician will normally isolate and confirm this diagnosis witth a special power cord hookup to the motor. From the way you describe your complaint, I feel that a timer would correct your problem.
