Remember ,,the tub has a balance ring on top..and that filled with water,,,if your getting water at bottom make sure your drain hose is at proper height,,,+theres always water between the pump and the drain hose no unit can drain 100 per,,

Kenmore series 80 washer do not drain enough

It's normal to hear some water in tub, it isn't normal for the rubber wheel to be hard to turn, you need to replace the pump, they are much cheaper on ebay

Mold in Kenmore Series 80 washer

You most likely have mold/crud on the top outer edge of the drum and even the tub it sits in from years of soap and water splashing up and sticking, The cleaners probably cannot reach those areas, You will have to take off the cabinet and clean all that off (should be videos on YT on how to take it apart)

Kenmore 90 series washing machine, heavy duty, super capascity plus,quiet pak2 3spd motor w/5spd combo, when in spin mode, it smells like melted crayons

If drain hose is connected to a standpipe check that it's inserted no more than 4". You may be getting a syphoning situation that is allowing gray water to contaminate clean clothes.

Kenmore 80 series makes buzzing noise but won't drain or spin, smells like burning if left on spin cycle.

That sound a lot to me like yall have something inside the pump. Over the years I have found all kind of things from ladies undergarments to shoes strings. themobilian_1938.jpg

Smells like something is burnt but dryer works fine

You may need to clean out your lint trap. Not just the part that you pull out. I'm talking about the entire tunnel. Even though we empty the lint trap regularly there's a lot that gets left behind and over time can become a fire hazard. Your arms and hands cannot reach everywhere in there. For this you can attach an old sock or rag to a coat hanger that has been opened up. Go down in there a couple of times with it. You'll be surprised at how much stuff comes out. To further help this problem you can also pull dryer out and check that the vent hose in back is clear and free of debris. Cleaning the trap screen (the part you pull out to empty the lint) with HOT water occasionally will also clear residue that has built up from using dryer sheets. Over time that residue will make those tiny screen holes smaller & smaller & smaller. All of this can affect your dryer's performance.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good luck!

Washer wont spin in the spin cycle.Washer was full of water and making a buzzing noise.If you have any suggestions what it might be that would be great. Kenmore 80 series washer about 11 years old.

sounds like the lower bearing on the trans mission shaft is seizing up on you. had a frigedair that did the same thing. i took it apart to replace, but could not buy separate. it only came with a purchase of a new transmission,which ran $175- 275. so i junked it out. washer was only 5 years old.

Kenmore series 80 12 years old

hey thats eazy.your washer has a water fill valve.the two black hoses go to it in the back.inside the valve where the hoses attach their are screens that keep minerals from going into the water valve.also some have screens on the other side off hose too,and after cleaning run the water thru the hose into the drain/sink because minerals may be backed up in house line or hose.If dosent improve after this its in your water valve and theres nothing you can do but replace the water valve they dont come apart for cleaning,or could take apart but looking for trouble because wont then seal and will over flow on to can do it .God bless ,tom
