SOURCE: kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.

SOURCE: kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle

I have a Kenmore 22990 top loading washer. it shakes violently and walks across the floor during the spin cycle. it started doing it about two weeks ago. moving clothes around inside the tub does not help much.

SOURCE: 90 Series Kenmore Washer Not going to spin cycle not draining water

If the unit is still agitating as it is supposed to, this is usually due to a faulty lid switch.

I've had the same can purchase a replacement lid switch at your local appliance parts store for about $35. Fortunatly, the sales person at the appliance store had diagrams and provided instructions to replace the switch. I was able to finish the job and fix the switch in less than 1 hour. Good Luck.

I have kenmore 110.26912690 washer. I want to remove and replace the water intake valve and it seems I nearly need to take the whole machine apart. Is this so? can you send me the how to get it out and...

The washer comes apart very easily. Problem is how the control panel is released. Either there is two screws in the front or rear of the control panel once these are removed the panel pulls forward and leans back. On some models there is two clips under the front edges of the panel which have to be depressed with a putty knife. On some models the end caps on the control panel pry off exposing the screws. After leaning back the control panel you must un-plug the lid switch, remove two brass coloured clips holding the case to the rear panel by prying with a screw driver, lean the case forward and remove the case.

If the front is a separate panel then it is made by ge and just insert a putty knife between the top and front panel a few in in from either side . Pull out and up to remove.

Overloaded the kenmore 70 series washer and it stopped spinning. It still drains the water and fills up with water but it wont spin. It just makes a noise.

More then likely the coupling between the motor and the transmission. To get to it tilt control panel back (held down by either two screws font or rear in the end caps or two clips under front of end caps . Remove two clips holding back to case . Remove plug to lid switch . Tilt case up and forward from back and remove. clips hog pump to motor. Clips hold motor to trani.(screws to hold clips).Coupling in three pieces

During the Spin Cycle my 90 Series Kenmore is not Spinning...

I have same series Kenmore washer with a similar problem. On the perm press cycle it stopped after the pause/cool down cycle. The door switch was bad. To ohms check the 3 wire switch, remove the right side console cover and pull the back cover back slightly. You should see a 3 pin connector with 2 black wires and one green wire. Ohms check the two black wires with lid switch pushed in with the lid down. Its about $40.00 and easy to change. Separate the male connector from the female connector mounted on the cabinet, remove 2 screws on switch, spread the two built in clamps securing the wiring harness to the cabinet and detach the ground wire screw. The replacement switch may look different from the original. Good luck. Hope this helps with your problem.

Why My Kenmore 70 Series Washer Won't Drain Or Spin?

You need to replace the lid switch. This is located under the case. you have to take the case off to change this part. This is done by taking the 2 screws out of the front of the control panel. Then flip the panel back and remove the 2 brass clips that hold on the case. Then you can remove the whole washer case to get acces to the lid switch. This is a very common problem and an easy problem to fix.

Kenmore 80 series lid switch

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosned, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.
