    I open the Avanti W789SA machine and found the belt for spin (drive?) is damaged. Now, by replcacing the belt, the washer can be easily fixed. However, I don't know how to get the correct belt.

Hi I see your having the washing machine won't spin problem. The first thing I would sugest is to disconect the AC power from the machine. The next step is to remove the front panel from the machine. Look at the top lid for a plastic tip that fits into a keyhole in frame. Underneath there there's a safty switch. This switch is designed to stop the machine from spinning if the lid is open. Sometimes the switch gets corroded over the years. It may have to be replaced or adjusted to align with the plastic tip whin the lid is closed. The black thing hanging down from the motor you described could just be some electrical tape the manufacture uses the bundle the wires from the motor. Some manufactures use a spring to keep the wires from the motor from interfering with any moving parts. Hope this helps.

My kenmore top loader 80 series wont start. I traced power to a black cylinder next to motor. i get nothing, no water fill or motor action in any cycle.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.



Also see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

It has troubleshooting and component testing procedures.

My Kenmore Series 80 top loader will not drain and begins the spin cycle then shuts down after a few spins depending on the water level. The machine can only be drained manually. There is no blockage of...


There are many issues that can lead to a no drain situation. check the following areas for faults.

Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

My washer wont drain nor spin...


don't suspect yet for the belt! if the motor runs then the belt could be the problem but not exactly! you could tighten the belt by adjustments of some components.

for the drain, make sure that the drain hose is placed down. try to look for connection for the drain knob going to the drain outlet. it could just be a cut/broken line!

notice also if there is a leak (water) on the bottom of the washer spinner. if it has, then the water seal has worn out causing slipping and poor spinning!
