Question about Kenmore 24902 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I bought a used Kenmore 110.94572201 about 6 years ago. It won't spin with the machine full of wet clothes. If I take the clothes out, it spins. It also stops washing in the middle of a cycle sometimes. It just stands there full of water. I have to press "start" and then it works again. This usually happens if I am doing several loads in an evening. Any ideas?

Most of spinners have weight capacity to spin. Please check the following:

1. Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.

2. Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.

3. Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.

4. Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.

5. Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.

6. Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

For the washer problem, do you smell something like burning? If yes, you might have a loose belt. Some washing machine stops working once it senses a loose washer belt.

Another thing is you got some thing stuck in the pump or it could be the motor issue. When it starts to short/burn out it overheats and letting it cool down will get it to work again for a short amount of time. Eventually it will not work at all. Other than that, it could also be the timer.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle


If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

Kenmore front load wet clothes


Before going further it is important to determine if the machine is reaching full spin. Make sure the unit is set to MAX extract and watch the inner tub. The tub should be spin really fast (1000 rpm's or better) during the final spin. If not you have lost one of the phases on the motor.
