Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
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)
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.

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.
