Have a look under the machine, should be a pulley on the elec motor and another on the centre shaft of the tub which goes through to the bottom pulley
Not sure if you have a top loader or a front loader
If that machine is a late model it may not be as I described but it won't hurt to have a look anyway

Kenmore washer model 110 26712690 fills up with water and does nothing. wife said she smelt something burning. I thought maybe a belt but when I took it apart I didnt see any belts.

no belts in a kenmore,if it filled with water and stopped most likely you have a bad lid switch.close the lid,open it up a few inches and close it down a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound every time you open and close it the lid switch is bad.,if you already have it apart,you can jump it out,the white harness you disconnected next to the right clip is the lid switch harness,stick a wire in the two outside holes,put it on spin and pull the timer out,it will run.the model number you sent isn't correct,i was gonna give you the part number and price of the switch,just give it to your parts store and they will sell you the correct part.

Last night my wife was using the washer and when the washer went into the spin cycle it sounded like the washer was chugging. The drum was turning but not at full capability. the washer is a Kenmore...

I had a Kenmore washer that had a somewhat similar problem. It had a rubber sprocket that had started to deteriorate that caused my drum to stop spinning. I'm not sure if your is the same but you might try pulling the back panel and see how the drum is driven. I am guessing the sprocket or belt has started to wear out.

My dryer won't turn on (start button?) The timer works though. It quit working in the middle of a cycle and I'm pretty sure the heat was still working, it just stopped working.


Sound`s like a broken drum belt. When the belt break`s on most kenmore/whirlpool dryer`s it prevent`s the unit from starting via a ``kill switch`` located under or next to the belt tensioner/idler pulley.

Since you`ve indicated the timer appear`s to advance/work, it is not the thermal fuse/cut-out.

The other possible fault is in the start button, but that is not very common.

I`d look at the belt. That`s what I`d check first. Hope that help`s.

Good luck and thank`s for visiting fixya.

First, call 911 (just kidding).

Sounds like the belt is loose or broken. Remove back and have a look see. Unplug first!!!
