I have a kenmore 90 series washer that won't spin. It makes a grinding type noise at that point in the cycle. I followed the trouble shooting guide and checked the motor/gearbox coupler. The coupler looks...


If the coupling is OK then the problem is most likely to be further up the drive-line, which means the gearbox has probably failed. .........Nomess

Will not agitate or spin


On Whirlpool brand made machines the drive coupler between the motor and the transmission is probably stripped out or broken and needs to be replaced.

Keep in mind that Whirlpool also manufactures: Estate, Roper, Kitchen Aid, some Kirkland and some Kenmore washers. All have the same coupler that gets stressed and breaks. A cause for this often times is overloading the machine.

After inspecting and finding the problem, make sure you have the model number and call your local appliance parts store or repair center and they probably have your part in stock.


Repairing a stripped out coupler is pretty easy for the doit yourselfer.

I suggest watching this video before attempting the repair:

What can the problem be when the agitator and tub do not spin or agitate? the washer fills with water, but agitator will not agitate and tub will not move. there is just a humming noise


Well, this is one of those times when it is important to note what brand of washer you have.
The fact that you hear something humming tells me that the motor is turning and that tells me the lid switch is activated and functioning correctly

If it is a whirlpool brand made machine the drive coupler between the motor and the transmission is probably stripped out or broken and needs to be replaced.
Keep in mind that Whirlpool also manufactures : Estate, Roper, Kitchen Aid, some Kirkland and some Kenmore washers. All have the same coupler that gets stressed and breaks. A cause for this is often times is overloading the machine.
Most other brands use a belt drive system and the belt probably burnt in two or broke. Again the cause in most cases is overloading.

How to change a belt on a kenmore 90 series?


Assuming that this is a belt drive Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper model, See the following illustrated description.

Newer models use a direct drive system with a Motor Coupler instead of a belt.

If you find you have one of these, see the following for how to change the Coupler:

WHEN SPINNING, SOUNDS LIKE GEAR IS STRIPPING


This is usually caused by the coupler very inexpensive and easy to fix. This video will walk you thru the process. Scroll down to the video on taking apart a whirlpool stlye washer it goes thru replacing the coupler properly. Your washer will come apart the same as in the video.

Washer only fills. then completly dead.(timer still advance)


is there any humming coming from under or front of your washer? whirlpool built machines for about 10 years now are "direct drive" ...the motor has a plastic coupling held in place by a rubberish plastic donut type of thing, its an inexpensive fix and there are videos on youtube on how its repaired..its under 10 bucks and usually cures any lack of agitation/ spinning ...i had a roper by whirlpool and once i replaced it from a parts machine i salvaged it was fine.. so check you motor coupler/ coupling and that maybe your answer, if not there is a set of wires and a cut off in back of the motor to prevent overheating, which may have tripped..also a good point to check.. good luck

Washer wont spin


if the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.
