Kenmore washing machine won't spin on its own

Today i noticed that when I opened my washing machine after it was done, the clothes didn't look like they had been spun and they seemed wetter than normal. So I turned it to the spin cycle and ran it again. It spun just fine and I could open the lid and see it spinning. Another thing I've noticed that the washer pauses for about 30 seconds to a minute between ( I think it was ) filling and then agitation. It seemed much longer than normal.

SOURCE: My washer does not wash the clothes or go through the spin cycle.

It sound like a belt problem. Try to move tub manually first, in case it move smoothly -open the front panel, the belt should be between the motor and the drive pulley (lower front). In case it torn or not in its place, you should replace it. In case it doesn't move smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, it should be removed. Good luck !!

SOURCE: The washing cycle takes much longer than the time listed on the panel.

Sounds like the pump may be clogged. If it doesn't get rid of all the water, it wont' spin. Remove bottom panel. Locate what looks like a big white screw. Remove counterclockwise. (It's tight). Have a bucket ready under neath, or a shop vac. Remove slowly to catch water as it comes out. When you pull the white part of the pump all the way out, there's probably things clogging the holes.

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 Series fills with water but would not agitate or spin

You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.

2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.

Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.

Best of luck!

SOURCE: will not go in to spin cycle

Remove agitator (it will pop off when pried) then you will find your answer. Mine was a broken tub collar to shaft.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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.

Hi,
First open the filter door and remove the water from the machine and the "garbage".
Second the problem sometimes is the water pressure, you have to control the amount of water.

IT´S NOT A ELECTRONIC PROBLEM
