This is a bad motor position sensor. Since the machine cannot tell what position the motor is in it just spins back and forth trying to figure it out. Often an error code will pop up after 15-20 minutes.

A technician should be able to replace this part relatively cheaply. Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Unbalanced load? Don't over stuff the washer. The load sensing moves the drum back and forth at the start. If it can't balance the load it will err.

My Kenmore Top load washer works fine except from time to time it won't spin and discharge the rinse water thoroughly. Sometimes if I move the drum back and forth while manually spinning it, it will...


The first thing I would check would be the motor coupling, sounds like this is worn on your unit, you shouldnt be able to spin the basket by hand very easily. The couling could be engaing and then slipping. When the tub doesn't spin the water will not be pumped out. If it is making any grinding noise or whirring noise then that would point to the coupling. The coupling is only around $25.00 to buy and then a service call to get it replaced. Also check the lid switch to make sure it is working, if this switch does not make, the machine will not spin, this is a safety devise. You can push down on it with a pen or small scredriver and see if this is making and the drum spins while the lid is open. Sometimes when the coupling goes bad you might also get a slight burning rubber smell and this is an indicator that it is almost gone.

Washer is not rotating fully during wash cycle


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.

Some Kenmore washers have a two piece agitator. The lower section will rotate back and forth both ways.

The top section has "agitate Dogs" that allow it to rotate only one way (to keep the clothes moving downward.

If yours has a two piece agitator there shouldn't be a problem.
