The spin cycle doesn't drain the water out, the spin cycle rings out the clothes. There is a drain pump that actually removes the water from the washer. If the tub is staying full of water check the hoses (2 of them) that come off the drain pump. Now if you mean the clothes are not spinning dry enough that is a different. Your Kenmore is actually a Whirlpool washer that uses what is called a DIRECT DRIVE COUPLER. It couples the motor to the transmission instead of a normal belt. Think of it as a Oreo cookie device.on the outside is 2 plastic pieces. Each piece has 3 plastic prongs sticking outward and each one will press on to a metal shaft. One goes on the motor shaft and one goes on the transmission shaft with the prongs pointing at each other. In the center between these plastic parts is a solid rubber disk with 6 holes drilled in it. The 3 prongs on each shaft go into the holes on opposite side to couple the motor to the transmission. when this part goes bad, either the prongs break off or the holes in the rubber disk wear all the way through. In either case the coupler would need replaced. It comes as a 3 piece set for about $10 to $15 and takes about 1/2 hr to fix if your handy.

Kenmore Series 70 Top Loading Washing Machine Model # 110.20722991 Serial# CL 1134809 Hello, Our washing machine is leaving our clothes soaking wet when finished. What could the problem be?


2 things are possible. Can you tell if the spin cycle is engaging? If the spin cycle is not engaging properly or very fast, then the water will not leave the clothes. less likely is that the machine is not draining the water away properly or fast enough.

OK- my Kenmore He2 won't spin fast enough to drain when there is a heavy load involved. This is what I've done- emptied the filter- lots of change and other gunk, cleaned out attached hoses and the p

Kenmore model #22622100 top load washer. My question is our washer has a sour smell and we have pulled it out from the wall. We are wondering how to take the top off.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer with diagrams and parts lists. Always a good reference tool.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-11022622100/0582/0153200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=11022622100

Next, see the following for how to release the console and remove the cabinet:

As a final reference, see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers:

Does not spin dry enough


Look for pinched or restricted drain hose. Is the water volume exiting the machine, enough?

Kenmore washer top load all cycles normal but when in the rinse/spin cycle notice it does not seem to spin fast enough to remove water from clothes and the are wetter then normal


There could be a number of reasons My best guess is that it will reduce the spin speed if it thinks it can't drain properly. Check that all the pipes/ filters etc are clear and that it can drain all the water out. Also it wont spin fast if the load is unbalanced. Does the spin speed change according to loading or is it low all the time? It may have a motor control problem, but that seems unlikely if it's working normally other than the spin.

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.

Kenmore 90 Series, clothes wet after spin


First thing you need to check is the speed of the spin cycle. As long as you are not overloading the machine, it should spin the clothes pretty dry. the basket drive may need to be replaced. If it is spinning very fast, then check the drain hose, make sure the water is coming out nice and fast. If not you may have a water pump problem even lint clogged inside it.
