SOURCE: Kenmore Washing machine spins slow

If it has a speed selection switch than this switch is likely to be bad, other than that are you sure that It once has high spin in the cycle you are using??

If the timer is advancing but won't spin out, it is possible that the spin contacts inside the timer are faulty. A technician will normally isolate and confirm this diagnosis witth a special power cord hookup to the motor. From the way you describe your complaint, I feel that a timer would correct your problem.

Hope this advice is helpful!

Dear Customer,

for ur water not drainin out, please do the the followin checks

  • Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the water pump
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect the motor coupler

  • n for ur rattling during spin cycle please do the followin checks..

    Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs

    Before working on the washer, unplug the appliance or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

    A washing machine may wiggle, rattle or move across the floor. It is often accompanied by excessive noise. There can be several causes and the problem is worse with some machines more than others.
    The most common cause is an unbalanced wash load. Open the lid and when it comes to a stop, redistribute the clothing to balance the weight. Heavy loads, especially things like comforters, are more likely to become unbalanced than small loads. If you do a lot of heavy loads, you should consider a heavy duty/large capacity washer when it comes time to replace your current unit.

    A washer must be level both from side to side as well as from front to back. Washing machines have adjustable feet to enable you to level them. See our article on how to level your washing machine.
    The outer tub is supported by springs, pistons or counterweights to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed.
    Unplug the washer and open the cabinet. Because of the variety of balancing mechanisms, you will have to inspect your machine to determine how it is balanced. Once you discover the mechanism, then inspect it for integrity. In the case of old parts that appear to be in working order, you may not be able to tell if they need to be replaced. They may be weak but appear to be in good condition. If no other solution resolves the problem, then replacing the balancing springs or other moving support parts may be called for.
    Another common cause for excessive movement is the floor on which the washer rests. The washer is heavy and even more so when filled with water. Any floor, other than a concrete slab, will tend to pick up and amplify the vibrations from the machine.
    There are a couple things you can try. If you have access to the joists under the floor, you may be able to beef up the support. Another thing to try is placing a large sheet of plywood under the washer. It should be 3/4" or even 1" thick and as large as possible to distribute the weight. Use a sheet big enough for both the washer and dryer to sit on. If possible fasten the plywood to the existing floor.

    • General tips mentioned above
    • Balance the load
    • Level the machine
    • Inspect the water pump for a blockage
    • Inspect the coupling
    • Inspect the transmission
    • Adjust the drive belt tension
    • Check the motor bearings
    • Check the drum brakes
    Please rate this solution.Thank you..

    My washer wont spin,


    If you had to empty the water manually, i.e the outlet pump did not drain the water out then I would suggest the pump is either blocked or has failed. This will normally prevent the spin cycle from occurring. Try checking and cleaning the pump filter out.

    After spin cycle clothes r still soaking wet. cleaned coin catcher. ideas???


    If the spin cycle is kicking in, then you can be pretty sure that the water has all emptied from the drain cycle, otherwise it wouldn't start the spin. So the chances are the coin catcher clean was not going to be the fix. The Highest probability is simply a case of overload. If the load is to great and the balance is thrown off as a result then it won't get up to full speed (the motor has several windings, so it slowly steps up from a slow spin, then up a step, then another, then full speed. poor loads will cause it to fail to kick in the fastest spin. Having said this, if that's not the case, then I'm afraid to say you may well have a motor, or a controller module fault. If so, it could get expensive.

    To test, run the shortest cycle you can with the machine empty. It will be a lot easier to hear and see this way. Make sure that you hear the empty pump eject the water and that you then hear it runn on a little after all the wayer is gone. This will show if it IS in fact enptying completely. Presuming it is, now watch and listen as the spin kicks in. Does it reach full speed when there is no load? If it does, then check the weight of your DRY load doesn't exceed the recommended load (remember a pound over weight will be several pounds overweight once wet!). If it doesn't get up to full speed with no clothes in it, I'm afraid its time to call an engineer.

    WILL NOT REACH FULL SPIN CYCLE, loud hum prior to spin, starts to spin, hits second speed but will not kick into full speed.


    I would suspect that you have a Motor and Motor Control Problem. This washer has a three phase motor in it and it could have one phase out of it or the Motor Control board could be bad. However it is recommended that you replace both at the same time with a motor conversion kit.

    Beach towels sopping wet after machine done spinning


    The washer will not proceed into high speed spin with just two large beach towels in the basket. The washer is detecting a out of balance condition, and remains in low speed spin. Solution? Try adding more items into the basket. With only two towels, there is not enough mass to balance the washer. With more clothing or towels, there is more items for the machine to balance, and reach full speed spin.

    The only other thing that could cause this, would be if the water in the tub is not completely draining in the time allowed. This washe does not have a cleanout, and checking for an obtruction in the pump is difficult. I would go with the more clothes first, then see.

    Kicks out?


    the smaller belt is causing the tub to spin too quickly. the shorter belt is causing the motor to overheat and causing the thermal overload protector to shut dowqn the motor. when the motor cools it starts up again. replace the belt with te correct size and that will solve your problems
