Question about Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft. Portable Top Load Washer
Everything seem to work except on the spin cycle. It drains fine but then doesn't spin.
Themotor runs (I can hear humming and the lid shakes a bit) but it doesn'tspin on the inside anymore (eg: opening lid at different times showsclothes in exactly the same configuration). The tub can be moved ifmoved by hand (and the springs still pulls it back to the center).
About this model (I could provide photos if someone tells me how to upload to this site):
-Top load portable washer
-8 years old
-The "console" is at the front of the unit (and not in the back as I've seen on most pictures on this site)
-Putting it on its side reveals the following:
--There is no "panel"/sheet of metal blocking my view of the interior.
--It has a belt so I'm thinking that the motor is NOT directly connected to the transmission.
--Ican manually spin things and other things spin such as the belt andagitator (Not sure about the name but its the thing in the tub whenlooking from the top of the washer).
--The white-ish round plastic parts seem to be in good condition (no broken "teeth").
Check integrity of the belt. it is possible that it is slipping and not making good contact with the pulley to shift it in to the correct position.
