Re: Kenmore Washer

  If this is a Kenmore or Whirlpool washer less than 20 years old it may be a motor coupler.  This part couples motor to transmission.  It can also be a transmission that has a bad seal that is leaking oil onto the clutch.  In this case you need a new transmission and a clutch.

Re: Kenmore Washer

The problem could be several different things depending on the make or model. quick answer would be to replace the belt(s). after a while belts stretch and become worn. not so quick answer would be a problem with your transmission and or motor.

My Kenmore 70 is also overfilling...

Sounds like it could be a faulty water level switch. A defect or an obstruction can mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. This switch raises the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises, the pressure increases on the air in the plastic tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch and turns off the water. It also signals the washer to begin the wash cycle. Clean out any obstruction in the plastic tube or replace the water level switch. Hope this helped.

Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

Kenmore Model 110.26712693 stuck on agitator cycle

Your air pressure hose going to the water level switch is pinched.
Open the top control panel to access the clear plastic tube and relieve the pinched area.

Not sure if manifold is leaking

Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Matag top load washer model # LAT9604AAE filled but no agitation

If just getting the water out is your main goal, this can be accomplished using a shop vacuum.
Be sure to unplug the power cord before attempting any repair! Another way to drain a machine is to use a bucket. Put the discharge end of the drain hose from the washer into the bucket, making sure the hose end is higher than the level of the water in the washer, and slowly lower the hose and bucket until the water flows into the bucket. Raise the bucket and hose end back up above the level in the machine tub to stop the flow. Repeat until the machine is empty.
Give the machine a try after removing some of the water as you may have tripped a limit switch and the unit may just be overfilled

Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.

No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.
