It appears your motor controller or pressure switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I assume you mean spin.You should have a slow/half spin selection on your machine if not select a delicates or wool program this will give you a slow spin.

Kenmore Washing Machine Model 23912-100 Won't spin or spins only at very slow speed, leaving clothes wet.


you may have spin tube grease leaking into the clutch causing the clutch to slip during spin and then not getting up to full spin speed. it is common and will require you to replace the clutch. its not an easy job for the do it yourselfer as you need to remove the transmission to get to the clutch.

Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast


Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.
