Not spinning changed clutch

My Kenmore 70 series is not spinning clothes dry. I have changed the clutch and it still only works if I put it on the second spin cycle.

    All of the water drains after the rinse cycle and the basket spins but the clothes are soaking wet, the water is pumping out but not spinning fast enough to remove the excess water. When I start the 2nd rinse/spin cycle it spins the clothes properly.

    I havent't checked to see how hot the motor is getting. If it becomes hot...would that indicate need for new motor?

It is not suppose to work on the first time because it hasa spin pawl which allows the transmission to not spin while the washer pumps out the water. It is called a neutral pac tranny. from what you descibe it is a timer problem if anything at all.

    If there was something wrong with the tranny then it would not work at all.How hot does the motor get?

I actually had the same problem with my kenmore. It was making a noise like it wanted to spin, but it just would not start. I shut the power off on ever other appliance that was runing (electric wall heater, electric space heater, 2 televisions and and a toaster). Once I did this the kenmore started spinning! did this work for you?

Kenmore 80 series washer leaving clothes soaked after the spin cycle

In order to fix this, you will need to take off the outer panels and check the motor inside and the clutch, most likely the clutch is worn down and will need to be replaced, I have posted a picture of what it should look like.


Please let me know if you have any other questions or need further help, most likely replacing the clutch will solve your problem.

Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya

I got kenmore 70 series. it doesnot spin but it

You have a bad lid switch . This is the piece , the lid actuator piece , goes down onto , in the hole on the top . Try putting a screwdriver into the hole , to activate the switch , to drain the water and to spin the clothes dry enough to remove , until the switch can be replaced .
