Re: washer not spining

Replace the loose belt. Regarding the dripping oil,look for the defective shock absorber. Good luck!

Kenmore Series 80 Washer Drips and Spin Cycle Sometimes Has Low Torque

Does it leak every time it's run, or only occasionally? It could be that the belt on the drain pump is going bad or is loose, so it works some times but not always. Could be that the belt broke or the drain failed, so it will always leak from now on. It's hard to say without actually taking it apart and having a look

My lg washer shake s alot when it is spining and makes a loud noise please can you help

The washer needs to sit on a solid foundation for this to work. When the washer is spinning a load of clothes, push the corner of the washer till the noise or vibration quiets down. When it does quiet down, adjust the leg below to reduce the noise.
Good luck

When washer is spining it makes alot of it the belt..

This machine doesn't have a belt. Instead it uses a motor coupling. A very common problem, that occurs when one overload it.

12 year old kenmore elite topload washer - replaced the coupler - works fine except makes horrible noise in any spining cycle- seems to be a rubber belt or gasket around the tub drive area but can't see...

ok lets see if i can help you out,, first the model number ( on most models) is on the inside of the lid, or raise the lid and look on the rim of the washer under the lid,, if its not there it may be on the back of the unit,, or in some cases its gone, fell off , wore out, ect.. second,, if the motor coupler went out then it may be a issue with your trans,, ive seen alot of these where the trans starts to lock up, or the bearings on your shaft start to seize, break the coupler

Amana LW8303L2 will not spine

Belt replacement on these is a slightly intimidating job to the uninitiated, but possible.

Lots of pictures and help at these sites.

Main thing is use ONLY the factory-authorised replacement belt on these. It is designed to have the right amount of slip/grip to enable your washer to work properly. This is CRITICAL on Amanas.

I changed the drive belt, so far so good. The belt I took off really didn't show signs of being bad, it may have been slightly glazed. Also, the drive motor is set to slide back and forth, I lubbed the glides. 3 loads have been run and it appears to be fixed.

Kenmore washer 24622300. clothes are very wet after spin cycle

washer may not be spining at all start in rinse cycle allow washer to wash and advance through cycle on it's own do not advance manually..after agitation listen for short pause after pause pump out should begin after pump out should be another short pause then spin should start..if spin does not start after 2nd pause suspect transmission if lid is raised spin may start but if it doesn't start during normal operation bad gearcase one other ck possible look underneath for oil it may be getting on clutch causing clutch to slip and not allow to spin full speed
