Kenmore 70 series model 100.xxxxxxx

My washer will not spin..after much research online we have taken the washer apart, discovered that the coupler is bad, so we will replace.  but there is also a belt that seems to be out of place and twisted.  The problem is: i have no idea what this belt is for.  Is is part of the clutch?  i do have pics if there is some way to post... help needed!!

    I have a very similar problem, mine is spinning a little bit, but not fast enough to spin out the water, I think it is the clutch. The little foam style belt in the area on mine seems like its out of place, I have no idea what this is for. It does not seem tough enough to be a belt, I don't think this has any belts but a direct drive style. I am going to get a clutch kit and try that.

  • amdaigle Nov 19, 2008 i am assuming i should just change the coupler, and just leave the belt looking thing just sitting there?? it is direct drive so i am not really sure what purpose the belt has anyway

Forget about the belt and replace the coupler first. if that doesnt fully fix it then replace the clutch. But just changing the drive coupler should fix it up good as new.

Kenmore 70 series washer will not spin, clothes are too wet

Not a belt, this is only a sound deadening devise on the brake housing. Not really needed. Replace the coupler

Kenmore 70 series will not drain or spin

It sounds like the lid switch. If it ws the coupler the water would drain. Check to see if the lid switch is clicking when you put the lid down. replace the lid switch. You have a great washer. Fairly cheap fix.

Does it hum or click? If it clicks your coupler is out or a hum could be a faulted gearcase.
