Here are some reasons for not spinning
It does not have to be a motor!

Defective Lid Switch

Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
Water Level Switch
If the water level switch is not resetting once the water is drain, power will not be available to operate the motor during spin. Check the water level switch for proper operation.
Whirlpool/Kenmore- Weak Clutch Spring
If the clutch is slipping the spring is weak and must be replaced.

Kenmore washing machine model 20712990 wont spin


If you don't hear a click when you close lid, replace lid switch. If when in spin, you hear motor but does not spin, replace motor coupler.

I have a whirlpool toploader.The coupler broke. Idid not see this . I thought it had stripped a gear or some thing because it would not wash or spin, but the motor would turn. Iopened the gear box stripped...


See the following three Whirlpool / Kenmore documents:

Pay particular attention to the "Neutral Drain Assembly" since there is a very small spring on one of the plastic parts that pushes the part into the main spin gear. If the spring is missing or broken, the washer won't spin. (we had the same problem and only found it after tearing the transmission apart the third time.)

Kenmore 90 does not spin (sounds like working & coupler is good)


If the coupler is ok then the next thing to check is the brake/ basket drive cam driver, the ear breaks off on em and won't release the brake. You must remove the agitator and drop the tranny to check itffbcc2d.jpg
Nothing is difficult about repairing the washer. I have repair photos HERE

Spin mode does not work


Dear "FixYa,"

I have fixed the problem with my washer.

I started clothes washing machine with one load of clothes.
Wash and rinse process completed, as it came to spin,
Machine stop, only I heard was running motor. I opened
machine and found coupler is cracked (broken) and was
unable to rotate the gear.

I replaced new coupler and machine started to work normal.

Thank you
Kanu

Washing machine, kitchenaid, found brass looking pin w/hole in en


No,there are two such pins in the machine for shipping purposes only when it is shipped out,they drop out into little plastic cups under the machine after delivery,
 If it doesn't spin or agitate check the coupler located between the motor and gear box consists of three pieces two are plastic one on the motor and one on the gear box the other connects the two in the center it is rubber.
 If it spins but doesn't agitate,most likely a bad gear case.

Washer wont spin


if the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.

Washer problems


if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...
