Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

The basket does not move at all on my Kenmore 70 series washer

I had to replace the motor coupling in my Kenmore 70 series washer. In doing so I mistakenly dropped the transmission. After reading I was able to get the brake to go up and get the transmission back in, but know the basket will not spin at all. I was able to spin the basket manually before I took it apart. Thanks for any help

It appears your gear box 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.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
