It appears your drive belt/coupling 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.

Easy and correct wash dry instructions


Just as I suspected, this is made out of synthetic materials. [main body] Invista Lycra, [compression] PWX FLEX, [panels] Powermesh

I suggest that you set it on "hand wash" setting on your washer. If that is not available, use "Delicate" or "Gentle" cycle. If you don't have a washing machine, best thing to do is hand wash it. Fill a clean sink with water, add a little bit of gentle detergent (many different brands are available and labeled as "gentle care". I use Seventh Generation, which can be bought at regular grocery stores and even Target!

And then hang dry it. Dryers ruin clothing especially manmade materials. I typically hang something at night and it is dry by the morning. Also recommend hanging your top in the bathroom as the enclosed area has a greater deal of circulation/ air flow than other areas of the house.

Kenmore washer spins on gentle cycle but not on regular cycle


It sounds like you have a busted coupler. It's what connects the motor to the transmission. They will bust, letting the machine work unless it's under a load. It then spreads out and the motor shaft spins inside the coupler.

Washer does not work at regular speed, it works on other setting


Since the machine works in two of the three speeds the problem points to either the timer or the switch that sets the speed.

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.

Go to the control panel category and see their diagram and list of switches and parts.

These aren't that difficult to replace but they aren't inexpensive.

GWL15 no hot water on Regular or Heavy Duty Cycles


should you select a 40* wash it would not be right if the machine filled with hot water, as the water in the house tank is a lot more than 40* ( around 65* i think?) this would just damage the clothes and i am sure you would just complain again at that.

if the machine works fine then there is no problem

Only Gentle Cycle Works


You have a bad timer. You can take the cover off and verify. Look for burnt contacts.

Kenmore Top Load Washer


You say its a Kenmore, but have GE Listed, so will hope you have a Kenmore. Sounds like if its just not working in one cycle, its more than likely a timer issue. Would need a model number to look up the part, but they usually range in price from $100 to $165 in price. They are not usually that hard to replace, so if you want to replace it, let me know and will get you directions, etc for that. Good Luck!!!!
