Washer will not spin

I have a kenmore model # 110.88754791 and when it goes into spin/drain mode the unit will drain but not spin unless I turn power off and then on again (open and close the lid).I have already replaced the timer and can't figure this out.

It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer stuck in drain and spin mode


Hello. I need the model number to help you accurately. When the unit drains, can you verify water *is* actually being pumped out? This is important because no washer will spin if it can't pump all the water out--modern electronic washers have to balance the load and water is an unknown, shifting quantity. I need the model number to assist you in initiating the diagnostic mode and explaining the possible error code(s) you might be getting. I hope I helped you!

Kenmore washer model # 110 20702 990 will not run past washer cycle or drain water


That is going to be your lid switch.
On this washer the pump is mounted on the motor. The motor goes in one direction for wash and the other for spin. The water gets expelled from the washer in the spin mode.

My Kenmore Elite HE 3 model #110 4822 201 will not spin. It runs through an entire cycle and fills and drains. The drum will turn a few turns clockwise when spun by hand but then will not move further...


Hello there:
The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool and Kenmore have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Machine will not go past wash mode. Machine does not drain or continue to spin mode, What can I do and how do I drain it.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

If it WILL spin but simply won't drain, the problem points to the pump or hoses. The motor directly drives the pump when in spin mode.

I'd pull the cabinet and check the hoses for blockage, and check the pump to make sure it turns and isn't blocked inside.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer model #110 and won't agitate


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23912100

Also see the Whirlpool (Kenmore) Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.

I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.

Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.

These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.

Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.

The washer on my double stack won't drain or spin.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Without a complete model number, I'm guessing but usually, washers have a lid lock built in that prevents the washer from draining or spinning unless the lid is closed.

If the lid lock is defective, the washer probably won't go into spin mode.

Check yours for the lock, where it attaches and replace it. It's probably not too expensive.

Won't Spin Without Assistance


It sounds to me like either there is an excessively heavy load in the washer and the unit simply isn't strong enough to get it going, or more likely the clutch mechanism/gearbox is malfunctioning. They use a clutch mechanism to allow the motor to run at a constant speed while the basket can start rotating slowly and pick up speed with time. If this clutch mechanism or gearbox isn't performing properly, the basket won't spin. It's not your motor or safety circuit since the basket will turn if given a little push.
