It won't spin without the belt. You need to place the belt from the motor to gearbox and there may be a tension pulley. Most are adjusted by loosening the motor and pulling it tight

KAWS677EQ0 washing machine.KitchenAid. It Wont agitate,spin,drain,hum,nothing.It stopped in the rinse cycle with wet clothes and all the water. what is wrong . the outlet works.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If your washer doesn't drain or spin, you may read and learn what parts may cause this. First, you will want to check your water pump. You need to make sure it is working. Make sure you check the belt on the pump. Make sure it is not broken or loose. Also, make sure your pulley is not stuck in place. Sometimes, they will stick or barely turn at all. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. If the pump, pulley, and belt are working, make sure your motor is working. You should be able to hear it if it is. If it isn't, check your lid switch. The lid switch can cause the motor to not work. It may need adjusted. If not, go ahead and change it. A bad lid switch may cause the washer to not work at all. Now, if your pump is pumping and the washer still won't spin, you will want to check your belt and clutch. Once again, the belt may be broke or loose. Check to make sure your clutch is not worn also. This may be a case of a bad lid switch again as well. You could have a bad drive motor. This is what controls spinning, draining, and agitation. You could have a broken motor coupler. Over time, they will go bad and need replaced. It is possible that your transmission is slipping or damaged. And lastly, you could have a bad basket drive ir spin bearing. This is what allows the inner tub to move. If this is the case, you will probably hear loud sounds or loud banging.

Machine wont drain or spin to end the cycle


HI,
This problem is caused by either a broken washer tub drive belt or a broken washer tub drive coupler, look under the machine for evidence of this.If it is found to be true you have to go for a replacement of that particular unit.
Thank you!

Hi, I have a Sears model 110 top load washer. When spinning the drum shakes violently. I took a look and found a belt looking flat piece of rubber shaped like a lemon. It was broke on one end. Could this...


What you are describing sounds like the rubber bushing on your motor coupling. The coupling is located between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) and takes the place of a drive belt. This type of system is known as "direct-drive". If it has broken, this will cause agitation and spin problems. The following link explains how to replace one:

This is a very simple repair, but if you have any questions, please let me know. The part number is inlcuded in the link I provided and can be purchased at appliancepartspros.com for about $11 or $12. I hope this helps you.

I OVERLOADED THE WASHER AND NOW IT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN


your washer doesnt have a belt, it is a direct drive with a coupling on the motor, so that is not likely your problem.
i would look to see if the lid switch is broken, when the switch wont work it wont spin or drain. if the coupling is broken it wont agitate or spin, but will drain the water.
just look under the top and see if the switch is just hanging loose. it has 2 screws holding it to the cabinet and a wiring harness that goes to the control panel.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care HD Plus Model #LSR8233EQ0 won't agitate or spin


It sounds like the coupling between the motor and gearbox has worn out. It should cost around $15 plus shipping and handling.
