A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

The console is bookmarked by two plastic pieces. Take those of by sliding them to the side firmly. Unscrew those screws and lift the console so it hangs over upside down, Unplug the plug and pull the clips out by setting a screwdriver down into the front of the clip and push the screwdriver away to spread the clip open until they both pop out. Pull entire metal casement away. If it's the motor coupler you'll see black rubber crumbs on the floor. goto the repair clinic to get a new set. They're cheap.

I have a kenmore 90 series washer that won't spin. It makes a grinding type noise at that point in the cycle. I followed the trouble shooting guide and checked the motor/gearbox coupler. The coupler looks...


If the coupling is OK then the problem is most likely to be further up the drive-line, which means the gearbox has probably failed. .........Nomess

Kenmore 90 does not spin (sounds like working & coupler is good)


If the coupler is ok then the next thing to check is the brake/ basket drive cam driver, the ear breaks off on em and won't release the brake. You must remove the agitator and drop the tranny to check itffbcc2d.jpg
Nothing is difficult about repairing the washer. I have repair photos HERE

Kenmore series 90 washer won't go into Spin


This is probably a bad drive coupler between the motor and the gearcase assembly.

Kenmore 90 series will drain but not spin


Hello,

You definitely have a broken motor coupling. This is the piece that connects the motor to the trasmission. The pump is connected directly to the motor on the other side opposite of the coupler. When they break, the water will drain but the washer will not spin.

Here is a repair manual that will help you replace the motor coupler.

If you have anymore questions please ask. This is an inexpensive repair and something you can do yourself. Just refer to the coupler in the manual and you won't have any issues.

Thanks

Squeaking/grinding/rattle noise during wash and spin


That sounds like a clutch problem - probably just worn and need replacement. Will definitely need to pull to find exact fault.
