Kenmore Elite Top Load does not spin on spin cycle

Wash machine does agitate, water does drain out during spin cycle but porcelain tub does not spin and appears to have dropped down and is resting on main plastic tub. I am having to ring out clothes by hand. Does this whether small or large load and if running without any laundry in tub.

Hi, If the inner tub has dropped down, you will need to change the block that holds the tub to the shaft. Remove the agitator cap and then use a 7/16" socket to remove the bolt holding the agitator in.
Lift the agitator out and look at the block holding the inner tub. There should be two slots with two tabs sticking up inside them. You will probably see metal shaving as well.
If this is what you see, please let me know and I can direct you on further repair.

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore warsher, Model num 110.14202300, not drain or spin


The clothes too wet after spin cycle tells me that the water ump is functioning. If it wasn't, there would still be lots of water in the machine when the cycle ended. These Kenmores have the water pump mounted on one side of the electric drive motor and the transmission, drive shaft, and agitator on the other side. The transmission is fastened to the motor by a "coupler", a three piece assy that often breaks. This common failure allows the machine to complete a cycle, however, because of the broken coupler, there is no drive to the tub and no spin or agitate. The clothes seem wet because the spin motion is supposed to provide the force to extract the excess moisture. Leave the lid open and verify that there is no agitate or spin.(During spin cycle use a pen to press down on the safety interlock, a small opening on the the of the machine, toollow the unit to spin with the lid open). If you verify this, flip the machine over and locate the coulper on one side of the motor. One side will be cracked along the shaft. Sears parts stores carry the coupler in stock. ($18.50) Hope this helps.

Kicking out water during wash cycle - spin instead of agitation


Hi,
Try these

  1. Check the drain hose, it should be at least as high as the top of the wash tub, about 38 inches.
  2. The drain hose must sit loosely in the house drain. Do not seal the air gap around the drain hose or a siphon will occur.
  3. Check the drain control lever
  4. Test the drain control coils
  5. Check the cam bar
pls rate my suggestion..

Water drains during spin cycle, but tub does not spin and appears to have dropped down. Machine does aggitate.


If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.
