Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer does not spin

My washer will not spin although the water does drain. Motor appears to be running--humming noise when it should be spinning. This is probably a 14yr old machine. Spec info:

Kenmore, model 110 (Sears Roebuck & Co)
91550100
Serial: CD3519702
Stock: 15501
9.8 amps
60Hz
120 volts

Name plate simply says "Kenmore Heavy Duty Large Capacity". Inside lid has "stylemaster 909873" if that helps at all.

Might this be something we can fix ourselves? Thank you for your time.

You must replace the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission. About $30.00

    I just had to fix the same problem on my girlfriends machine. It was fairly easy to install. FSP PART NUMBER 285753 or 285753a. I paid 19.95 at a local supply house. I saw it used on the internet for $4.99 but I wanted to get the job done asap.

The washer will fill up with water but it wont start washing or drain or spin you hear a humming noise then everything stops. Then in about 5 mins it will hum again then stop again


If the washer will not agitate, spin or drain it's a motor problem, capacitor or a broken motor coupler. It's either a loose wire connection on the start circuit or failed contact in the timer. When you say that the motor hums during spin, that would indicate that the motor has run voltage, but it has no start voltage. It needs both start and run voltage in order to get the motor started and running. The start voltage gets the motor started, and once started all it needs is run voltage to keep it running. The only difference between agitate and spin is that the polarity is reversed in order to start the motor in the opposite direction. The reversal of the polarity is controlled by timer contacts 7 and 14.

Most likely it's a timer or loose wire connection.

WASHER MAKES A HUMMING NOISE IN SPIN CYCLE BUT DOESN"T SPIN & CLOTHES ARE SOPPING WET.


what's the brand name and model number,all washers are different,most likely it's the motor humming or the pump is humming,could have something stuck in pump,if the water doesn't drain the washer won't spin,if you have a shop vac pull the drain hose out of stand pipe or sink,stick the shop vac hose onto the drain hose,get it down as low as you can and suck out the water and then see if it spins,if there's alot of water in the tub suck it out of the tub first then go to the drain hose,if it spins when water is out you know it's the pump but if you say water is still in tub i would have to say it is the pump,

Loud grinding motor protesting humming w/no spinning or agitating


The drum/agitator bearings are bad I believe, or the gearbox has been damaged. This is an expensive repair. I would strongly consider buying a new washer. This is a great time to buy appliances since the stores are really competing, and the prices are at their lowest.

Washer does not remove water in final spin


If washer hums when it should spin, and the washer will not drain, you may have 2 issues.
First check that the drain pump, drain hose, and wall drain are free of debris.
The washer may not spin properly if the drain system is not operable.
Once you are sure the washer drain pump, drain lines, wall drain, and drain hose is okay, run a test wash.
If the washer hums but now drains, you fixed one issue.
If the washer still hums, you may have a bad belt, motor coupler, motor itself, etc...
Check parts for wear and replace as necessary.I pulled the drain impeller and found a sock from my little guy stuck in there. Fixed!
check all water outlets to make sure there is nothing blocking the pipes.

this is a direct drive,no belts,good washer you won't find any washers built like this anymore,on top console pop off the clips on each side,then remove the two phillips screws,lift the top console,with a regular screw driver stick in into the hole where the clip goes into frame and on top of the clip and push forwards and the clip will pop out,then there's a lid switch a white wire connector on the right top,unplug it,now grab the cabinet and tilt it up and pull back and remove the cabinet.if the motor is humming and it's not draining it sounds like some thing is stuck in the pump or a bad pump,look down and you'll see the pump on the front of the motor,with a screw driver pop off the two clips and slide the pump off,get a piece of wire and stick it into the white connector where you disconnected the lid switch from,this will jump out the switch,set the timer to spin and run it,if the motor spins then you know the pump is jammed or bad.let me know what you find.the pump part is WP3363394
