My washer will not spin and acts like the inner drum with holes is stuck, what is wrong?

One of two reasons: The drum belt has broken and needs replacement, or TWO, check for an object that may have accidently jammed the drum from turning; such as a sock falling into the tract where the drum rotates, or a bad seal. Check the drum for movement by hand, and see if you can free it up manually. Last: check alignment. Look for damaged fittings.

Hello. My Kenmore 80 Series/ Heavy Duty(Model # 110.24852300) is shaking like crazy during it's spin cycles. I've been doing research online about this. I will proceed in turning it over and searching for...

It is not recommended to turn the washer over, or on it's side. These top loaders have a direct-drive gearcase that is filled with oil. Laying the washer down can cause oil to leak from the breather hole on top of the gearcase unit.

I would recommend you check the level of the washer before doing anything else. These model washers have an auto level system on the back two feet, followed by a manual level on the front two feet. The following link explains this leveling system and how to properly level the washer:

An unlevel washer is the number one cause of off balance issues and vibration.

If you do wish to view the washer internal components, the correct way of accessing the interior is to remove the exterior washer case. This procedure is not difficult. The following link explains how:

Other causes of vibration (if the washer is level):

1. Loose suspension springs on the lower support under the drum.
2. Loose agitator bolt causing the agitator spin unbalanced.
3. Loose spanner nut under the agitator causing the wash tub to be loose.
4. Suspension pads under the drum worn out and requiring replacment.

You can view exploded view diagrams of your washer at any of the following websites to assist you with your inspection:

Refer the "Washer Base" drawing for a view of the suspension components. Refer to the "Agitator" parts list for a view of the agitator components.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.

Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

Object in the drum

this aint an easy fix.
Sometimes a bra wire gets through the holes and gets stuck.
the only thing you can do is split the drum housing and empty it out.
No hard to to but takes a lot of time and patience.
Sometimes when you are lucky take the pump hose off the drum housing and look in that hole. sometimes it gets stuck there
