Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
My daughter's washing machine stopped spinning during a spin cycle. Sounds like the motor is still running but tub is not.
This is a Kenmore washing machine, model #110.92588210.
There was some black rubber residue under the motor, but the only thing that looks like it could have come from is a small rubber on a white plastic pulley on the bottom of the motor assy. (Doesn't really look like a belt. Can't tell.)
Also while checking it out, a small brass pin fell out. Was not sure if this is the problem or not. I will post a picture as soon as this posts.
Would appreciate any suggestions.
The pin is a shipping pin and serves no purpose after the machine is set up. These machines comes with a plastic strap through the back panel to hold components in place for shipping. There are plastic cups that the pins fall into after the strap is pulled.
Ignore the pin.
Your no spin problem is a stripped out direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.
It is a easy fix.
Use the attached video as reference to change out the part.

It doesnt have any signs of wear - the only thing I can think that it may be is a moving (shipping) pin.... securing the suspension during transit.
Usually when the dolts come to install - they pull the cotter pins and leave them in the little mounted cups under the washer in case you move in the future - you can re-use them.
Maybe you'll find more in there while you're replacing the clutch!!
Typically - the ones I have seen are round (see link aboev). May be a different style ??
If its about 2" long - thats what you have there me finx !!

I had the same thing happen about a year ago.
"small amount of black bubbe" on the floor. it turn out to the coupling from the motor to the drive. sheap enough and easy enough to change, no need to disassemble anything but to dismount the drive.
