Kenmore 80 Series won't spin out

Our Kenmore is 8 years old (Sears). Was working fine until a few days ago. It began balking at the spin cycle. We were able to get it going again a couple of times, but now it won't spin or drain at all.

    My Kenmore just stopped spinning. I have to wring my clothes out by hand after a wash, then manually drain the washtub and tilt it to get all the dirty water out. Then I have to run fresh water to put it through a rinse cycle and finally wring my clothes then hang them out on the line to dry. Once they are dry i take them to a dryer and put dryer sheets in them and that is how I iron. This is so tedious. My sister thinks that I need a belt on the machine but the instructions inside the door suggest that I change a fuse? my dad started taking the knobs off the machine to get to the fuse part but after 10 minutes he decided he didnt want to invest the time and suggested I buy a new one. I am going to get the strength to change the fuse one of these days because it can't be physically harder than washing clothes by hand for 6 people.

    My washer (Kenmore 80 series) stopped working last night. It washed the clothes, but when it got ready to spin, the dial turned and it sounded as if the water was started to drain out, but it abruptly stopped and nothing else happened.

My Kenmore washer drains after the rinse cycle but won't spin at the end of it's cycle. If I manually set it to the spin cycle, it spins just fine. Desperate!!! The lid switch was just replaced about


Possible there is problem with the timer controller unit. It seems that the stepper motor is not moving to the next cycle until you manually move it to the spin. You can use some contact cleaners on the switch and also carefully try to see if the timer moves within , replacement is a costly issue and must be debated

Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle


Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

Hope this helps.

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

KENMORE SERIES 80 WASHER


There is three things on this machine that concern me. Last week I rebuilt a series 80 and it did the same thing, mostly on perm press. It turned out the timer was fine and the mechanical had not been rebuilt in years. Because of this the motor could not spin fast enough to fling the water plus the pump was leaking. I need three things from you. Is leaking water and oil when looking under the machine, does the motor hum loud even when functioning normally and when its spinning lift the lid, is it still rotating after a quick count to 7? Drop me a line I would like to help.

Broken Washer


it could be the direct drive coupling that connects the motor to the transmission. fill it up with water and see if it will agitate, if it will NOT agitate then it is a good chance that this is the problem. 0404472.jpg

worse case scenario is the transmission is bad, but this is unlikely.

Kenmore 80 series washer


Your transmission is not engaging thats why the speed changes your making will sometimes get it to work.Honestly any machine after the 10 year age mark is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission.
