Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Our 10-year-old Kenmore front-load washer has stopped agitating or spinning. What might be the problem?

The drum can be moved manually, so nothing is blocking its movement. We hear the sound of the motor at the times in the wash cycle when agitation or spinning should take place, but nothing moves.

Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!

11 year old Kenmore washer fills then stops.


in the machine under the front control panel will be a module that controls the wash agitation. Have it checked out as they fail . There is no connection between the timer and this unit as it comes in to play when the water reaches a set level. The timer just keeps working through the cycles believing the washer is agitating.
