Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

The spin/drain cycle is not working

Hi,
The washer seems to be working, except for the drain and spin cycle. The clothes are still very wet at the end, because I don't think the spin/drain cycle is working. It is also making a strange smell--almost like burning. It is model # 11042722201.

If the machine is stopping at drain, start checking the drain hose, if the drain lines are free, there is need to access to the drain pump and check pump and hoses.

    The problem can be either with the cycler control or with the drain system.

    If it smells like burning stop the machine, and get a repairman, that means that there is a short , and that is the cause for cycle not completing.

    Regairding the drain problem, if the control is faulty this can be related, otherwise check drain lines, and have the pump and the drain filter checked.

I have a maytag frontload washer 2000 series that will not start spin cycle won't even try unless the washer is empty. no error codes showing, even after I do diagnostics. help...wife is miffed..


After determining that the washer is plugged in, the drain hose is free from kinks, the "No spin" option is not selected and the washer door is securely closed, the cycle should be reselected to see if the washer will spin. If this does not solve the problem, it is advised to contact a trusted repair service. Problems with the lid switch assembly, drive belt, drive pulley, drive motor, tub bearing or transmission can also cause a Maytag washer not to spin. These repairs should be carried out by a professional.
If the washer is spinning but clothes are still wet at the end of the cycle, one should ensure that the washer is not overloaded or unbalanced and that the correct wash cycle is selected. Delicate or handwash cycles spin at a lower speed, resulting in wetter clothes

If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.

Broken washer/dryer


This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
