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

1 Answer

Kenmore Model 80 get stuck between agitate and spin.

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 then it will spin out as it should. I have held the lid switch down and watched in get stuck after the agitation cycle. I was told that this could be a burned contact in my switch. I installed a new switch, but I still have the problem. Thanks for your help.

    Just gets bound up (motor loaded) at the beginning of the spin cycle. The water will pump out without the drum spinning. If I cycle the lid during this time, I will hear a clunk and the drum will spin as it should.



    Thanks so much for your help....Chris.

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 Model 80 get stuck after agitate and will not spin out


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

Agitated with my agitator and spin cycle


Your problem could be with your transmission, which is located directly above the drive belt pulley under the wash tub. If they go bad, your motor will still function normally, but the wash tub will not spin or agitate. Now, another possible problem could be a nail or screw stuck in one of the wash basket holes pressing against the outer tub. I have personally seen this a couple of times. A dry wall screw or nail will stop the wash tub from spinning and cause the drive belt to smoke as the motor pulley turns, but the belt stays stationary. That could be the source of your smell. If you're a do-it-yourselfer or do a lot of carpentry work, you may have washed some clothes with a nail or screw in them. Inspect all the holes in the wash basket throughly. A nail or screw can easily be missed if your not looking for it. I hope this may help you.
