Kenmore washer no spin

My Kenmore washer won't spin with a load in it. If I run it without clothes, it seems to do alright. Does sound like it slows down though.

Re: kenmore washer no spin

Does the washer drain the water quickly?? Are there any error codes?? Usually the drain pump sump is clogged and not draining, thereby not letting the unit advance to spin.

I have a Kenmore elite he5 gas dryer and when it is turned on it will not spin. Can you tell me why?

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings OTHER WISE CHECK FOR A LOOSE WORN BELT

My washer will not spin and oL keeps coming up on it

My guess would be that oL stands for "overloaded" and that it will not run becuase of a weight sensor that says there are too many clothes in the load. You might try removing some of the clothes to see if it will spin as expected. if not, maybe the sensor responsible for reporting this error is registering an overload situation even when there isn't one.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer

Hello genny2626

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises

Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

dryers take a lot of power to run.the circuit is tripping because it cannot take the load of the may have to get a dryer line installed.check the value on the circuit breaker.u need to use twice that value on the dryer.with clothes added to the dryer the motor takes more current to spin.this extra current is greater than the circuit breaker value so it trips to prevent the house wire from going on fire.
