Roper washing machine

My machine runs through all of the cycles allrigt, but when it spins it doesn't spin fast enough to extract all of the water from the clothes. I have gotten underneath , and checked but if there is a belt it is not vsible. Is there one or is this simply a direct drive? Margi

    I looked for any oil under the washer and on the floor. The coupler is a little worn. I was wondering about the clutch. While it is not a very old washer, we have put it through it's paces. (I have four teenagers!) I know that it is a direct drive, and I have studied some of the schematics for my make and model. I know that nothing is rubbing against the tub, and I had to wire the lid switch circuit to bypass, so that the washer spins if the lid is up or down. I will start with the coupler, as I believe that is the least expensive part. I may have further questions, and thank you for taking the time to respond! Margi

It's direct drive. It may have a bad coupler. Did you see any black particles under washer? Also look for oil on floor and bottom of washer. Transmission can leak oil into clutch causing slow spin.

What causes the water not to spin out of the clothes?


Hi, it means that the machine is not spinning fast enough and pumping the water away. If its not spinning enough then you have to get the machine looked at as its not clicking on in the cycle for it to spin fast enough. You also have to have it set to wash cycle that has a fast spin. If it is spinning fast then you have to look at the pump to make sure its pumping the water away.

THE CLOTHES COME OUT VERY WET EVEN IF I USE AN EXTRA SPIN CYCLE. IT SEEM'S TO BE SPINNING BUT MAYBE NOT AS FAST AS IT SHOULD.


Make sure that the load is properly balanced, if the load is heavy like a bunch of towels or out of balance it will not allow the machine to spin fast enough to extract the water

My washer is making a clicking sound when it is about to begin the high spin cycle to spin the water out of the clothes and is unable to begin the spin cycle on it's own. I have to manually move the knob...


If this is a belt drive unit it could be the belt or whats called a actuator also call a shifter. This componet switches the gearbox from agitate during wash to Spin to extract the water from the garments.

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.

Washer spins but not enough to extract water from clothes or tub.


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
