Wont spin, drain or agitate


the transmission is either burnt out or the freaky looking belt that turns the pump is off. or the switch that tells the unit that the top lid is down sometimes comes loose cause some companies used a caulk like substance to keep the foot attached to the switch as slid away from where it is and the lid is not pressing that foot down to close the circuit and tell the tranny its safe to spin etc. You can fill with the lid open but not spin. There is a motor that controls all the spinning and draining or agitation and if something in their design is opening the circuit it wont perform those functions.
another idea is the timer motor isn't making contact and you might have to replace that..... there are tons of issues that can cause that.

The water comes out in the detergent/softerner liquid dispenser; instead in the main washer.


Water Problems
Sometimes water will not enter the machine in order to properly wash clothing. In that case, the water may be turned off or the water fill valve, water temperature switch or timer may not be functioning correctly. A defective water valve or timer can also cause the machine to not enter the spray rinse cycle. Another issue that arises is when the water will not drain out of the machine. The drain may simply be clogged, or the drain hose or pump may be malfunctioning. Water will splash on the floor if the pump or water valve is not working, or if the machine is operating on a low level of water with a high level of agitation, which means the force that promotes all the functions of the machine.
Cycle Problems
Malfunctions of the various cycles are common as well. If no agitation occurs, the agitator spine may be stripped, or the motor or internal transmission system could be broken. If the machine will neither agitate nor spin, the belt or coupling is most likely the problem. There are a number of issues associated with either no spin or a slow spin including an open lid, defective lid switch, spin tube, wigwag, timer or wigwag wire or a drive belt that is not properly adjusted. When the motor will not run at all, first check the power cord to make sure that it is plugged in. If that does not solve the problem, issues are found in the timer, lid switch, motor or water level switch.
Other Issues
Sometimes washing machines will excessively vibrate or "walk," meaning that they begin to inch forward while the motor is running. Check inside the machine to see if there is an unbalanced load. Heavier items, such as sneakers, cause vibration as well. The load can be fixed and any unnecessary items removed. If the problem persists, other possible issues include an improperly leveled machine, a worn-out snubber, broken suspension springs or shipping pins that have not been removed. Another problem that arises with washing machines is oil leakage caused by transmission failure, which is one of the more costly issues to fix.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.

Washer problems


if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...
