Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Model 80 get stuck after agitate and will not spin out

The cycle will continue on pumping out all the wash water without spinning resulting in laundry that needs to be re-spun before on to the the dryer. If I catch it right as it is happening I can cycle the door, hear a click under the drum and it will spin out as it should. I have held the lid switch down and watched in get stuck after the agitation cycle. Need help narrowing it down to the gearbox / brake-clutch assm / or ?? Thanks for your help.

I have seen this on the same model recently, try lifting the lid during the neutral drain and reclose, if it engages spin then. then most likely your timer is bad too. The timer after two minutes of "neutral drain" will stop the motor (same effect as lid sw) then restart after a pause with spin/drain. this pause shifts the transmission to its next cycle which is spin. I found burned contacts in timer. Your timer list price is over $100 but easy to replace

many machine spin a full tub as they are pumping the water out
this helps to even out the washing load and reduce the unbalance situation
when the water is removed , the machine progresses the program to a high speed spin
call a technician as there may be a problem in the program board

Goes thru agitate cycle then stops - no drain of water, no spin. Control dial does not advance but manual advance also not result in drain or spin. Position of dial on agitate area results in agitation.


If the drain pump is not operating correctly, the cycle will not continue. Also, sometimes the pump has something jammed in it, and may just need to be unclogged.

Kenmore 80 series will agitate but not spin or let water out.


Hi, I know washer had a party, he just need a dancing partner, joking, that's a common problem, when machine is not properly level, you should used spirit level, to level machine, after leveling machine, place both hands on machine, and try to rock it from left to right, forward and backward, and it should not have any play, if there's play adjust legs to compensate, water has to be pumped out first before machine spins, rhere's something wrong with water pump, maybe some fabric stuck in pump impeller, or maybe wires disconnected from water pump, remove back of machine and check connection to water pump, check for kink hoses, visual check, if wire were remove, connect to water pump, you're smart. good luck.

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter
