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.

Hums andwill not drain and do final spin


Probability is you have a blocked pump. That humming noise you are hearing on the spin, is the pump motor polling as it cannot turn. The machine will not spin until the water is out. This is the safety function of the pressure switch. Centrifugal force would otherwise cause the water to be forced out of the machine from places like the dispenser draw and flood your laundry.

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 did not spin out message E20 appeared on panel. Attempts to start just humming noise.


is the humming comming from the motror trying to run or is it just a humming sound if the machine has washed correctly upto that point then check water pump for faults and or blockage machine will not advance if water trapped in machine the humming sound could be the water pump either free spinning indicating a blockage or humming as it is trying to run indicating a faulty pump

The humming noise you can hear is probably the pump trying to go.
It is probably blocked, or the filter needs cleaning..
You need locate and clean the filter, usually at the bottom front of washer.

Washer runs fine until spin cycle--will not drain, though the drain pump motor hums. Also will not spin, which I assume is related to the fact that the tub is still full of water. If we manually empty the...


Hello, This is going to be one of 2 problems...either your drain filter is clogged or your pump is bad. Take off the lower panel on front, Behind this panel you will find what looks like a gas cap to a car. Unscrew this gas cap(have some towels handy to mop up water) remove the drain trap (filter) you should see alot of debris,coins maybe a sock blocking it...clean out the trap and replace. If this does not fix the problem replace the pump, although it sounds like it's humming it may be siezed or impellers might be broken. The pump should be located right next to the drain filter at the front of the machine. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike

Something is stuck in the pump. Remove the hoses and remove the items. It will probably be a coin.
