Question about Kenmore 23022 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing Machine Dance

I just replaced my washer with a slightly used Kenmore washing machine. Everything works gret except on the spin cycle, the machine dances across the floor. I have evenly distributed the load, adjusted the feet and still the same problem. It is on a concrete floor and the older unit I had never had this problem. Any ideas ???

Re: Washing Machine Dance

Cars, does the basket lean to one side? There might be a couple of issues. The coupler that seats between the motor and trans could be wollowed out causing vibration. Another is that one of the balance springs came off or broke. I'm going to attach a photo of the springs so you can see what this looks like. You can remove the whole cabinet to check things out or tip the washer back and take a look.

Kenmore washer 110.16112503 works in wash & spin cycle but not rinse. After wash cycle finished I hear a humming sound and the machine does nothing until I manually start spin cycle. Broken timer?

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

Everything works but it does not spin

There is an auxiliary switch in the door lock and switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. This is a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during the spin cycle and the machine will not spin unless the switch is activated. The machine works except advancing to the spin cycle and this signifies that the auxiliary switch cannot be activated and the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Replaced the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) to address the issue. Click on the link below for the complete and detailed procedure.

Washer fills with water but will not continue with the wash cycle. There is power to the machine because I can her an electrical humming when I try to start the cycle.

If the water in the machine empties when you move the selector to spin but does not spin, you may have a machine that uses a coupler to connect the motor to the transmission (many Kenmore models and others). When the coupler fails, and they do, then everything will work except for the agitator. If this is the case, you can see it if you flip the unit over and look.

If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.
