SOURCE: Kenmore 90 Series fills with water but would not agitate or spin

You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.

2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.

Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.

Best of luck!

SOURCE: Washing machine wont work at all

Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

Fills up with water, wont wash, drum motors works


Sounds as if this computer is trying to display an error code. If switching cycles manually makes it work, then it is most likely a bad circuit board. Try doing a google search for "Kenmore washer lights blinking" or something to that effect.

My kenmore 80 series washer will not agitate. fills, drains, &spins great. coopler motor is good


inspect the lid to make sure it is closing properly. If the lid switch does not click into place correctly, your washing machine will not start. If the lid is simply bent, you should be able to bend it back into the correct shape to allow the switch to work. Otherwise, remove and replace the lid switch according to the manufacturer's instructions. move from wall, use a flash light and see if motor is running or it is a broken belt. check the lid switch first ! the easy way to check it is to open lid. hold down switch with a screw driver or simillar object. and see if it starts to agitate. if it does its the switch.

Will not wash or spin


the two most common things are a broken lid switch or motor coupling,if you can hear the motor running but nothing else is happening you have a broken motor coupling,if it filled with water and then nothing check the lid switch,close the lid and then open it a few inches,open and close it like this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when the lid opens and closes then the lid switch is bad.next time send the model number off of the washer,it will start with 110. or similar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU this will help you with the lid switch but the part number could be wrong,when you call your parts store give them the model number and you'll find it right under the bottom of the lid when it's open.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c copy and paste for the motor coupling,good lick and hope this helps

MY WASHER FILLED UP WITH WATER, BUT THEN IT JUST QUIT WORKING.


I believe it is your lid switch. I have replaced 3 this week. If you get me the model number i can tell you for sure. Another thing that caused this is the motor to go bad. Do you smell a burning smell when it is trying to run after the fill up? If not get me the model number and i will get you the part number for the lid switch.
