My Kenmore series 70 washer will wash and then the machine stop. If I move it to the rinse cycle it will start agitating again and then it will shut off again. It seems li9ke the spin cycle isn't working
Either of these three problems may be occurring.
Faulty Direct Drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)
Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore
brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct
drive 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.
It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.
Defective Lid Switch
Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.
The agitator is driven
by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined
and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the
transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined
to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling.
If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch
the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a
small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator
shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or
the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not
work properly, the problem is in the transmission.
