Post Spin cycle drum winds down slowly- Doesn't stop w/LID opened

The drum does not stop abruptly when the lid is opened during the Spin cycle like it always has in the past.   The power to spin the drum is stopped, but it just winds down slowly.  Additionally, when the spin cycle is over the drum does not stop spinning quickly but rather coasts to a stop.  (around 18 seconds unloaded)
Once stopped the drum can be spun by hand.  If you start a new cycle, the drum is still movable when the water is loading.  Once the water stops and the agitation starts the drum is locked down and can not be moved by hand.  The agitator is working as expected.
The only other symptom is an occasional very short and high pitched "chirp" during the agitation cycle.  Thank you in advance!

Does not spin clothes dry


Run the washer empty on the lowest water level. Cold will save energy. Watch it fill, close the lid, stay there. Don't advance the timer no matter how tempting as this could skip a program interval. When you hear the water draining listen for a sound change and open the top and see if it drained completely -- pumped out empty. Close the lid so the cycle can continue. During the spin cycle open the lid. See if the drum was really turning fast -- it will be slowing down as soon as you open the lid because that stops the motor. If everything seems normal, then the problem may be transmission or belt slipping under load. Do you have the problem only on large loads? If the spin speed is slow during the test then the transmission is not shifting in to high, controlled by a solenoid. Check the solenoid for power during the spin cycle. Operate the washer on blocks or outside on saw horses to see full function of underneath parts and have access to electrical wires for testing. Use precautions testing and plug into a GFCI. Take your car battery jumper cables and clamp to a water pipe ground and to the underneath frame where the motor mounts. This should keep you from getting electricuted standing in water and holding a test meter.

Washer won't spin. Belt is slipping. Tub is stuck.


The belt sounds worn out since its slipping. Change it out. Its cheap fix.

The drum brake does just what is sounds like. brakes the drum. For instance when u open the lid during a cycle and everything stops thats the drum engaging and stops the movement of teh drum. If the brake is malfunctioning two things will happen, you open the lid (assuming the safety switch is still good) or the drum will not spin at all.

Kenmore 110 washer drum spins with lid open during Rinse/Spin


Slow agitator could be linked to shaft bearings going south. Pull the agitator off and check the block on top of the shaft. With everything turned off, try to turn the shaft. It should turn freely both ways. Other things to slow down the works could be a very worn drive belt from the motor.
The lid switch problem seems to be a wiring short--trace the wiring back from the switch to where ever it ends up (at the timer?). If it winds up at a relay, the contacts may be stuck together. It would be nice to have a wiring diagram--ah well. Don't know if any of this helps, good luck.

Washer stopping abruptly at end of spin cycle.


Hi, it sounds like maybe some dust has gotten in the basket drive pads causing it to stick. Has it been happening long? Sometimes it will work its way out. Try turning the tub with your hand clockwise. You can also put a heavy load in the washer (wet) and let it get to a high spin. Then open the lid and see if it starts stopping slower.
If this doesn't clear its self up, you will need to change the basketdrive.
Please let me know if this has helpped.

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore 80 Series washing machine - loud banging at end of spin


With the lid open, set the cycle to spin and press the lid switch button with a pen. Wait until the drum gets to full speed and release the lid switch. If the drum makes a knocking/ thumping noise and doesn't stop spinning within 2-3 seconds, the basket drive block is worn and needs to be replaced. (The basket drive block is located on the gearcase drive shaft, under the tub and agitator) If this has been happening for a long time you may need to replace the brake and drive tube assembly as well.

Basket drive block part number is 389140

If that's not it, let me know and I will try to help you further.
Good luck!
