Re: kenmore washer not draining

The pump might be clogged with coins or what not. Check that first.

My washer stops after washing. It won't drain or spin. What is the problem?

Whats your washer brand name. Is it top load or front load. The model number. It all depend on your machine model.

If it is KENMORE or Whirlpool top load more than 6 years old, then most likely it is your door switch. It is straight forward fix and cheap.

Kenmore Dryer-Mod.#11066514694-won't spin or heat

This could be caused by an internal thermal overload switch. These usually have a limited life span in any appliance that uses heating elements. Try to locate the overload switch which usually looks like a small diode or resistor. You can determine if this is the cause by bridging the switch with a piece of wire, then trying the dryer once more.
Best wishes,

Kenmore 66512690 problem

Appliances which use heating elements almost always have an internal overload protection switch. This overload usually looks like a small diode or resistor somewhere on your incomming power inside the machine. Try to find this overload and bridge it out and try the machine again. These overloads usually have a rather limited life span and are most often the cause of a "dead" machine.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer

Hello genny2626

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises

Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!
