On those washers the waste water pump will get hair and **** wrapped around the shaft behind the pump fins. pull the washer forward and tip it back so you have access to under the front. on the right fron you will see a little pump. unplug the power clip and the ground wire. there will be a plastic tab you must bend a little so that you can twist the whole motor, not just the fin on the back, counter clockwise and remove. if you have water in the machine it will come pouring out. your machine will not rinse or spin if the waste water pump does not pump out enough water in its alloted time. when you have the motor out unscrew the pump fin cup thing and pull all the stuff off the pump. good luck.

ALL WASHERS HAVE A LOADING DOOR SAFTEY SWITCH ... THEY ARE THER TO PREVENT CHILDREN FROM STICKING THERE HAND IN THERE WHEN THE WASHER IS IN THE AGITATING OR SPIN CYCLE. WHEN THEY GO BAD OR STICK, THE WASHER WILL FILL AND THATS ALL ... THESE SWITCHES ARE USUALLY INEXPENSIVE BUT CAN BE A REAL PAIN WHEN THEY GO BAD. START THE WASHER WITHOUT CLOTHES IN IT AND LET IT FILL ... OPEN THE LOADING DOOR AND SEE IF YOU SEE A SMALL HOLE AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE LID OF THE WASHER ... NOT ON THE DOOR. IF YOU FIND IT ... TRY STICKING A SMALL UNBREAKABLE OBJECT THAT WIIL FIT INTO THE HOLE. MAKE SURE YOU WILL NOT LOSE GRIP OF THIS OBJECT FAND HAVE IT FALL INTO THE HOLE. THEN GENTLY PUSH DOWN ON THE SWITCH BELOW A COUPLE OF TIMES AND SEE IF IT WILL BEGIN TO AGITATE ... SOME NEWER MODELS HAVE THE SAETY SWITCH BUILT INTO THE HINGE ON THE DOOR. THESE SWITCHES ARE NOT EXPENSIVE SO DONT GET RIPPED OFF.

If it is out of balance it will automatically return to a wash cycle to try and redistribute the clothes more evenly. Maybe the out of balance switch is faulty. More likely though is a faulty control board. If that then get a new washing machine. That model is over 20 years old. Not worth spending money on it.

End of wash cycle, no draining or spinning, but can move to rinse cycle and it agitates again, no spinning after rinse either


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.

The drain and spin functions are started when the timer advances to the spin mode.

The motor is reversible. When agitating, the motor spins one way, when going to the drain / spin mode it reverses.

Since the machine agitates, the problem points to the timer.

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.

Our Smart Drive 601 wont rinse or spin properly and keeps changing its own settings and pauses


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum) Of course some direct the hose into sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your problem will be back for someone else to solve.
