Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer won't spin

I have a kenmore elite top load washer that has stopped spinning. All my clothes are just sopping wet, and have no idea what to do next. This is an older machine, 2003 model, not sure what model # exactly. The troubleshoting guide that comes with the washer offers no help to the issue. All it says is to not use an extension cord and to make sure the lid is closed. I'm just getting frustrated with this and would like some help.

Check your drive coupler between the motor and the transmission. You can check this by leaning the machine back and checking with your hand. If it wiggles loosly back and forth its no good. Another sign is rubber pieces all over the floor under the machine. If that seems to be tight then you most likely have a bad clutch.

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