If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#
Part # AP3096209

The agitator dogs may be broken or the transmission could be bad. Try checking the agitator dogs first. They are an easy and inexpensive fix.

SOURCE: series 80 kenmore washer floods

You have a bad selector switch. It's the one that you use to set the size of the wash load. It turns the water valve on and allows the machine to fill to the level of water you have selected. When it goes bad, it will not open to tell the water valve to turn off once the water level has been reached that you have selected. This is why it's over flowing. You can change the switch with little effort. What you will need to do is take the plastic covers off of each end of the console. To remove, pull forward on the top to un-clip. Once you have removed both end caps, take the screw out of each end that you will see once the covers are removed. Now pull the whole panel toward you and lift it up. It will pivot over the back of the machine. Now you will see the back of the console where you can remove the bad switch. You can find the switch anywhere that sales appliance parts. One on the web is www.partselect.com I have found that they have the best price on most parts. Just enter you complete model number and it will bring up a blow up of your machine where you will be able to find the part and also order it with a credit card. Good luck and have a great day.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 80 fills with water and won't stop

Good day,
Sounds as if the water level switch is bad, or the hose to it has broken, come off or is plugged up at the base where it enters the tub.
Remove the 2 screws that hold the console in place. They are either at both ends front, both ends front but hidden by end caps that have to be un clipped, or lastly at the bottom back.
Pull slightly forward and rotate the console up from the front and away from you.
You will see the water level switch with a plastic hose pressed onto it. Remove the hose, and blow into it with the tube partially filled. You should hear it gurgle. If broken, the air will just escape, if plugged and you cannot get air thru it, it will have to be cleaned.
If everything checks O.K. with the hose, then the fill control (pressure switch) is bad, and needs replaced.

The agitation mode works thru the pressure switch, but the switch is bypassed in the pump out spin mode. That's why it performs as you described.

I have a kenmore 80 series topload washer. It washes the clothes just fine fills and drains just fine, but it has a leak. I looked under the machine and found nothing wet. Checked all the lines still...


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.

Check the areas for the motor and pump and the Agitator Basket and Tub.

If you've checked the hoses to and from the pump the problem points to either the pump itself or to the Centerpost gasket.

Neither of these is too difficult to replace, the Gasket requires removing most parts of the washer although the pump is an easy replacement.

My washer won't spin the clothes out. It agitates


the probem is more than likely the motor coupling you take the screws out of the control panel they are located on the front one on each side then lift the control panel you will see two clips one on each side remove them then the housing should come off the coupling is located between the motor and trans behind the pump

Kenmore washing machine 80 Series 110 20802 990 Will not agitate or spin"


You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.
