My kenmore 800 washer is off cycle for example when i start a load of clothes it starts agitating before filling, and doesn't always spin all the water out of the clothes


I have the exact same problem with my Kenmore 800 top loader, Model # 110.29822800. It is only 1.5 years old. Any suggestions?

My 5-year old Whirlpool LSB6300PW Top Load Washer will fill with water but will not agitate or spin. There is no sound of the motor even trying to do anything. My husband thinks the motor would be making...


Bonnie,

I was able to fix a similar problem with the same model washer today so see if any of the following helps you.

First, this model is not belt driven; it has what's called a "direct drive" which could be the source of your problem, as it was for me.

Unlike in your case, our washer made a horrific spinning/clicking sound when it was supposed to be agitating or spinning but it filled and drained like normal, and the horrific noise stopped when the lid was lifted.

Because of those two facts, I discovered it was likely the direct drive coupling, which connects the washer's motor to the transmission.

Turns out, that horrific sound was the sound of one of the couplings spinning uselessly after it broke.

After some internet research, I discovered it was a simple matter of getting and installing the new coupling, which was very easy to do with a little professional help via YouTube.


Here is the website of a parts supplier with great schematics and great prices that I bought the part from.

Good luck!

Dan

Water leaks at base when filling washer


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

If the hoses are fine, check the shaft from the motor to the pump and check inside the pump to make sure the inlet and outlet aren't blocked.

I'd also check the gaskets at the bottom of the tub.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, these are easy fixes.

If you have to get to the gaskets at the bottom of the tub, see the following for how to remove the agitators, pump, motor, transmission, spin tube and basket.

(It sounds a bit complicated but it's not really that difficult.)

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

As an aside, see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for top load direct drive washers.


https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Depending on the problem (hoses or gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person.

Washer will not drain


Empty turn on side can be a couplke of things. Check drive transmission and water pump for obstruction/binding and for slippage replace parts as needed.

My washing machine has a broken drive belt!


Not a good model number, so I can't be positive on this. All whirlpool top load washers built in the last 25 years are no longer belt driven, they are direct drive, Broken drive coupling is a very common problem. If you have a wp washer older than 25 years with a drive belt, I don't recommend you repair it as there are a number of major repairs at the same time. Outer tub major corrosion, leaks small amounts of water onto the base plate and then into the wig-wag assembly(electrical shock hazard), main bearing-basket drive assembly, water pump bearings and seal fail(this is usually what burns out the belt. Ect, ect. For Repair manuals try Reliable Parts Co. at 1800-666-0313 Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Kenmore washer (model # 110 24872300) won't agitate.


Your machine has no belt. It has a direct drive coupling. The direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission must be replaced.

The washer will not agitate or spin. It does drain the water


Hi, this can be two issues here. Number one would be a busted belt. The next issue would be a drive assembly failure. this consist of the clutch and gear case(transmission) assembly. I would check these areas out. you will find the problem here.
