My washer intermittenly doesnt spin - not all water is pumped out (response)

Thanks for the solution. Is the basket drive the same as the transmission/gearbox? I found, with further observation, that what seems to be the real problem is that it doesn't always spin. If i open the lid, and turn the basket manually, the spin cycle will work most times. Then do i need to replace the transmission or the moter assy.

No the basket drive is above the must remove the gearcase(transmission)out first,but you need to take the agitator of first and there is a spanner nut there from above.

Spin cycle not getting all water out

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

Check that the hoses aren't blocked and, If the hoses are fine, check the shaft from the motor to the pump and check inside the pump to make sure the inlet and outlet aren't blocked.

Maytag Neptune TL clothes still dripping wet after full cycle

Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good.

No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine.

You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head.

Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached.

""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code.

The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle

I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min. I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM. At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle. You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine. Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

Washer doesn't spin

let the machine rest for a long time (cool off) then with no water or clothes try spinning it...
no spin problem can be several headaches:
too much clothes (too heavy)
drive coupler broken
broken lid switch
basket freeze
pump locked
clothing in pump
clothing in between basket
clutch locked up
brake locked up
transmission seized!!!

it is hard to determine exactly without being there to help you...just check what you can... if you have additional questions let me know

Direct drive Kenmore washer does not spin

. If water does not pump out and not spin, check lid swicth. If it pumps the water out but does not spin you could have one of the 3 following problems. Ck in this order. Drive couplin is bad between motor and transmission. usally will make a rattleing noise/chatter. Next possible clutch. While hold lid switch down with pencil or something small spin tub with hand. if it takes off and spin replace basket drive and possible clutch if doing this much tear down. last of the 3/ look around the sides of the basket holes with a flash light for something like a sock/ rag or something like that has gotten between the outer tub and basket. it is hard to see but with a good light you can see it or remove cabinit and check sides of outter tub . you can see through the tub.

Wcvh6600hbb ge washer does not spin.... pump is pumping out the water.

could have a problem with the basket drive tube assy,,,,what happened to mine was the brass t-post on the bottom of the basket drive tube had been ground off causing my clip that holds on the brake release arm to fall off,the arm and cam fell down and thus had no spin,,,i bought a used tube installed it with a new clutch and it works fine now! I'd check that are of machine!

Why wont a washer spin out when it doesnt have a belt

Hi, The coupler replaces the belt and it could have broke. Other options are, the lid switch is bad or the spin basket drive assembly or the transmission. If the coupler is broke, the washer will not agitate either. If the lid switch is bad, the motor will not run either while in spin cycle. If the spin basket drive or transmission are bad, it might spin a little but not strong enough to get the water out of the clothes.
Does nay of these sound like they are what is going on with your washer?
Please let me know if this has helped you at all or if I can assist you further.

How do you diagnose a bad washer pump vs a cloged line?

Amana ALW480DAW seems to be not completely draining. When I start a new load water in basket becomes dingy and smells. Washer smells when it has not been used for a couple of days. We have checked the outflow and inflow drain tubes found no problems. It seems to spin and agitate normally, it drains to a point and leaves water in it, not visible in the basket. When we blow on the outflow tube when it is done draining there is still water present, we can hear it bubble.

My washer intermittenly doesnt spin - not all water is pumped out

there is no belt, if the coupling was bad then it would not spin at all. Sounds like it could be a worn basket drive.

Kenmore Series 70 won't spin

Sounds like you have got a basket drive and sub-pack issue. These are very hard to change out because it requires you to remove the inner basket, motor, transmission, agitator, pump, etc. The part number for these are:

Clutch Kit (Sub-Pack): 285785
Basket Drive/Spin Tube: 285792

If you think your up to the task, let me know and will send you some general info on getting the stuff in and out. Good Luck!!!!
