Question about Kenmore 42182 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Slow spin No matter which spin cycle is selected, the spin speed is slow. So slow that things are still wet after the cycle. Have not looked yet to see if this thing has a belt -- I will look at that first. Would a bad motor lead to slow apin? Could the dial/control cause a slow spin? -- Thanks

    I have the same problem. It doesn't matter what cycle I pick the spin is slow. It doesn't matter if there are clothes in the drum or not. Any help on this would be wonderful. Thank

Top loaders have a belt and a clutch. The motor has two sets of windings, slow for wash and fast for spin. You need a service engineer to correctly diagnose and fix.

There are parts here, but you need to correctly diagnose the fault.

SOURCE: washer won't spin fast, only slow

tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent. HE detergent specifically designed for front loading washers

SOURCE: My Kenmore Elite washer spins to slow cauisng the

If this is occurring mostly on heavier loads your clutch may be slipping. If you take a flathead screwdriver and push down the lid switch so the washer will spin with the lid up, grab the inside of the drum. If you can easily stop the drum its most likely a bad clutch. If you tip the washer back and see oil underneath then its probably your transmission leaking oil onto the the clutch causing it to slip (in which case you need transmission and clutch assy). If you see oil I would probably not bother calling a tech it would be a pretty expensive repair.
IF the problem is with the clutch only it may be worth repairing but to replace the clutch you will have to remove the pump, motor, transmission, and the clutch mounts on top. The other less common possibility could be a bad drive block under the inner tub. hope this helps. _MJ_

Maytag washer is sometimes out of balance and clothes are sopping wet when spin cycle ends. Washer is balanced on the floor.


1ST thing put less clothes in washer each time

second ck to see that drain hose is not obstructed from draining out the chamber , ive seen fabric lint get stuck inside the drain valves and slow and eventually block them off

last thing to look at
temp defeat the lid lock switch and or watch it spin thru window , your looking for the speed it spins at (should be a blur !!) , if its slow and not steady in rate but instead sort of gets slow/fast/slow/fast this could be an indication that your tub drive system isn't working well , this depends on a large bit of things working properly , but could be as simple as a worn out drive belt too.

WFS1073DD front load WASHING MACHINE Everything works but will not spin fast enough to spin the water out. It spins very slow


Early automatic washers used a motor with multiple windings to provide the various speeds required by different parts of each wash programme. Modern washers use an entirely different sort of motor and the speeds are selected and controlled electronically with feedback to ensure the speed is correct.

I suspect the problem is the electronics - the part of the programmer and controller that regulates the motor speed but you should check the motor and motor brushes, the drive belt and all electrical connections as a matter of best practice before you spend money...

Atlantis MAV6260AWW is not spinning at full speed, its agitating while spinning leaving cloths very wet .


check under lip of washer or around outside of tub. A garment may be in the void between tub and basket. It won't always slow down spin cycle as it may roll around when spin cycle is on but occasionally it will ball up and jam between the basket and tub thus decreasing the spin speed. Socks are a common problem and if you are sometimes whiffing a foul water smell that is the article of wet clothing that has remained wet for some time.

WSM2480 Clothes Still Wet After Slow Spin Cycle


It's possible that the tub didn't drain properly in the allotted time and the remaining water is slowing your drum from coming to maximum extraction speed.

I have a 2 month old Speed Queen top load (542) after the spin cycle, the clothes are still very wet


i assume the majority of the water is being pumped from the machine? if the clothes are very wet check your "fabric Select" setting and ensure you are not wahing on delecate handwash or wool wash (knits) setting, in this setting there will be a very slow or no, spin so the clothes will not stretch and have to be laid out to dry this is normal. if you are on a Permpress or regular setting the spin should be faster, also check your cycle selection is for Regular or permpress and spin is not missed .

I hope this was useful

Washer turns slow loaded or not


front load machines will normaly spin slow on first part of spin cycle this helps distribute load evenly before hi speed spin also if load is extermely off balance ..a large towel with load of light fabrics will never spin to full speed due to off balance produced by wet towel hi speed spin is normaly acheived in last 3-4 min of spin cycle

Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast


Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.
