Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Washing machine not spinning

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.

    Below is a pic of the pin that fell out while I was checking this out. Is this from the washer?

    Did not find a cotter pin. Of course it amy still be up inside somewhere. This was purchased used last year so I am not even sure this pin is actually from the machine. It just seemed odd that when I turned the machine on its side it fell out.



    I was looking at the parts list yesterday. (Poor quality when zoomed in.) Couldn't really see if that pin is on it. There is no part listed as such.



    What is there to dropping the motor/clutch/brake assy. down? I see there are 3 bolts holding the gearcase to standoffs. And it looks like 2 bolts holding the motor to mounting brackets. Is that it?

    Yeah, that looks like the pin.



    About the clutch...do you believe that is the problem? How difficult is it?

    OK guys.



    It was the coupling. Here is a photo.






    $16.50 for a new one.



    As you can see the old one IS ROUND. :-)



    Thanks for all the help. The video was great!

    yeah - just bolts!! (and the agitator needs to be removed to drop the shaft)

    I have seen this before - not necessarily on a washer though!!!

    I take apart alot of stuff - and it all blends together after a while.



    Maybe it just reminds me of a carb. float pin.

    Very similar.



    Stumped on this one.

    there is the parts list for the washer - I dont have time right now to PIN it down for you. I will do some more investigating in a few.



    Looks like a knurled pin, or head pin from an idler or leg.

    Did you find a small cotter pin as well? it should fit in the hole.

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.

    This video helped me out alot. The coupling was fine but I was able to eliminate that as a possibility of the problem. Unfortunately I broke the pump while I was down there. Be careful with those pumps. Cheap ****. Anyways the problem turned out to be the lid-switch.

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 !!

    Yeah - sounds like the clutch is fried and not engaging.

    Its not too difficult if you have room to work in.

My washer will spin but very slowly. Motor and shaft spins out of washer.


Your problem sounds like the drum/tub drive clutch is worn. Especially if the motor operates fine and attempts to spin the tub. This model is a direct drive unit, no belts, so if the motor operates during the spin and drain cycles but the tub is barely moving, only two problems can cause this, bad clutch (which is engaged only during the spin cycles) or worn drive coupling on the motor. If the coupling were a problem, though, you would also notice sluggish or erratic agitation during the wash cycle.

Hope this helps

High pitched sound during spin cycle


That machine doesn't have a belt. It is more likely that you have a bearing going bad. You may also have a tub seal starting to go which then leaks water onto the bearing, damaging it.

Washing machine will not spin


Hi, If this model has a belt, you might need to replace it. Once the belt gets wet, they are ruined. If the motor runs during the spin cycle and the tub does not turn, it is most likely the belt. If the motor is not running in the spin cycle, we need to look at other causes. If I can assist you further, please get me a model # so I can see exactly what washer you have.

Thanks

No spin cycle


Sounds like a pump problem. If the tub is full of water, it likely won't spin...it's just too much for the motor. The pump is supposed to do it's job first by pumping out all of the water so the motor can spin the tub. I bet the noise you hear is the belt trying to run in a seized v-belt pulley.

Change the pump...bet that does the trick.
