Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I got a Kenmore washer, 70 series model# 110.20702990 It just started a problem when in the spin mode. I hear a clicking sound down by the motor when it is spining and pumping the water out. The tub speeds up and slows down as it clicks. Something is not engaging correctly. I hear the click sound about every 2-3 seconds. any thoughts?

The motor is not getting to speed. There is a loose wire, bad selector switch, or bad start windings in the motor. Check all the wires carefully and push firmly into the motor connection. This is not an easy one to find unless you get lucky.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

My Kenmore 70 series is 18 years old. It will not


Hello. Since your machine is 18 years old and the agitation/spin is costly to repair I would definitely recommend a replacement washer.

Kenmore washer not spinning ans washing


Does it sound like the motor is running at all ?( if motor is running u need a coupler) (with machine off turn cycle switch around 3x roughly, then try machine) With the machine off do you hear a clicking noise if you open and close the lid?

Kenmore 70 series


sounds like the lid switch has failed-no clicking usually means it is broken.
If you can get the top control panel up,you will see the molex plug that connects the harness to the switch.Jump the white and gray wires out and see if the unit spins.

Good Luck!

Kenmore 70 series will not drain or spin


It sounds like the lid switch. If it ws the coupler the water would drain. Check to see if the lid switch is clicking when you put the lid down. replace the lid switch. You have a great washer. Fairly cheap fix.

Won't go into Spin mode


That is perfect, hey does it agitate but won't spin? If it hums and you get no action I would suspect a motor. The best case is a jammed pump, the rest is spendy on parts here is a source for you.
