Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

Kenmore washing machine series 90, will not agitate, spin, or drain. Door switch is good. Wigwag solenoids have continuity. Motor start capacitor good. Motor will spin if belt removed.

Water pump checked out good. Buzzing noise, not like the out-of-balance buzzer, when switched on in an agitate or spin cycle. Goes away, then returns after about 2 minutes.

Unplug the unit. Remove the hoses on the water pump to check if it is clogged. Water will come out so be prepared. Check how you can check for error codes.

Clicks when it agitates and does not agitate very well


Look on the wigwag solenoids. their are 4 wires a white common wire on both solenoids and 2 different wires one on each solenoid. Check each solenoid for continuity. now here is the secret. This washer is getting age on it. The solenoids have shift pins mounted on shift levers to change the action from wash to spin. the motor on this model does NOT reverse. It relys on the wigwag assembly to do the shifting. The shift pins get rusty and won't move. Remove the shift pins and sand them down so they will slide easy when the solenoids are energized. if you feel like it is something wrong with the solenoid or the time you cans witch the none white wires and it will spin instead of wash and vice versa. This washer is a good un but an old un. unless it starts leaking i would hang on to it as long as possible. Let me know if you have more questions.

Kenmore 60 series will not drain


Well if this is a belt driven model then your solenoid coil is bad.
This model 's motor only revolves in one direction. To spin it has to shift gears. It does this by means of a solenoid mounted on the transmission called a wigwag. Note: if the lid switch is bad no power can go to the wigwag and shift it. If this is a direct drive model(no belt) then it has to be a bad lid switch.

Kenmore 90 series that wont agitate or spin


Could be the door switch, do you hear a clicking sound when you close the lid?

Does the motor hum at all in drain/spin?
