Kenmore 80 series washer model 110 doesn't fully drain when cycle complete


With the lid open, try to turn tub by hand. If you can you may have a bad clutch. If you hear the washer agitating at the begining of the cycle without any water and filling at the end of the cycle, replace the ATC switch. Try spin cycle and open the lid, if you don't see the tub turning, but hear the motor, check motor coupler, or if it never spins after you close lid, check lid switch. These are the most common solutions to this complaint.

I have a Frigidaire FTF530ES1 front load washer that doesn't spin or agitate. The door lock light comes on and I don't think it is that. It fills with water, then you can hear the clicks for each cycl


Good Morning Vickie,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES1, will not spin or agitate. I also see that the door lock light came on so you checked the door latch, due to it not unlocking right away. Now, you have removed the back panel and restarted the cycle, to find out that the motor is not coming on. There is a possibility that it could be the motor, or it could be something completely different that is causing your washer to not spin or agitate. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why it is not spinning. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My washer wont rinse. It seems to have a hard time spinning, any suggestions?


do you hear the motor running ,it will drain but no spin,this has no belt in it it's built just like a whirlpool washer because whirlpool owns maytag now and this washer has a motor coupling,i would check this first,do you know if the agitator is working or do you hear a grinding noise when it's running?watch this video and you don't have to disconnect the wire harness to the motor if you don't want to,i don't just put motor off to right side still connected

AGITATOR WILL NOT SPIN, WATER WILL DRAIN BUT NO SPIN


Does your motor sound like it is running in the agitate or spin cycle or is it quite? If the motor makes no sound, then you need to replace the lid switch with this part.
If you hear the motor running in the agitate or spin cycle but you don't see any action, then replace the motor coupler with this part.

The washer is not spinning and clothes are extermely wet top load 3.5


Hi, Well try to set the washer on the regular cycle, large load and let it fill. After the washer fills to the selected level, the motor should start and the agitator should start agitating.
If you hear the motor running, but the agitator doesn't move at all, do the following:-
Stop the washer and set the timer on the spin cycle and let it run.
If the washer motor runs and the washer empties the water from the tank, but it won't spin, that is an indication that the motor coupler is not turning the transmission at all.
The motor coupler is made of two pieces of plastic called fingers and a hard rubber piece that goes in between the two fingers. One of the fingers is attached to the motor and the other finger is attached to the transmission. The had rubber round piece goes between the two fingers. When one of the plastic fingers breaks, the motor is no longer coupled to the transmission and the washer will not agitate or spin dry the clothes. The reason that the motor coupler breaks before it should, it is that the user overloads the washer. People stuff the washer with too much clothes, big comforters, small placer rugs, snickers, etc.
Another reason is that the washer is used every day; normally the washer is used 3 times a week. So if you have a washer that is 5 years old and you use it every day, it has the wear and tear of a washer that is 10 years old.
Replacing the motor coupler is not hard to do, once you see how the repair is done. You will save at least $100 by replacing the motor coupler yourself.

Thanks!

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
