I have a Kenmore model 110 top loader. Will not drain or spin on any setting. I have checked and bypassed lid switch, I am able to lower drain tube to manually drain washer. Any suggestions?

Two listed causes for this problem are bad or broken drive belt (I would suspect warn if it still agitates, but does not spin).
Next one is bad drum motor and that calls for a replacement of the part.
I would myself look at a possible third.
You have a pump located at the outlet tubes connecting point beneath the drum. I would check that to see if it makes a clicking sound first to see if power is reaching so that it is getting power. If it is, then I would check the wiring to see which leads power the pumps motor and bench test it (after removing it) to see if it is frozen.
If it is not then check to see if the impeller itself is turning.
If frozen ir still working but impeller isn't turning you need to replace that.
I actually would bet 5 bucks that there is your problem.
Good luck.

I have a kenmore front loader recently it has decided to stop spinning and retain water. Help?

Regardless of model, this is probably a drain pump problem. With many Kenmore washers, there is a pump trap that can become plugged. Remove the washer's bottom front panel, if there is a white drain pump casing, turn out the pump trap counter-clockwise, making sure to have a bucket to catch the water. Check and clean the trap, and try to spin the pump impeller, if the pump impeller is stuck, something may actually be stuck in the impeller. If the impeller feels wobbly, you will want to just replace the drain pump entirely. Depending on the model, there may just be a hose connecting directly to the pump, with no trap available, just pull the hose off and check for an item plugging the pump. With any model, there will be WATER that will POUR out. Be prepared.

Yes, more than likely this is you're problem. If the impeller is damaged, it will not pump the water from this machine. If you have or can get hold of a service manual for this unit, and you are mechanically inclined, this is something that you can replace on your own and can save you lots of cash.Small items can get through the tub and into the pump breaking off parts of the impeller or just wearing down the plastic blades.Sounds to me like you had this figured out already.

Model EWF1087 washing machine will not spin or drain just makes buzzing noise.

your pump impeller is blocked or fouling on something inside the filter compartment,turn machine off unscrew fiter (be prepared for water to come out),then get a long screwdriver and turn the impeller anything caught in there will free itself up,and you should be able to mremove forieghn object if impeller doesnt turn then it more than likely your pump is seized and will need replacing hope this helps.

Impeller or clog?

It sounds like you've done all the preliminaries, but now it appears you may have a bad drain pump. If the pump is only humming and water is not draining, the motor is probably bad.'s a few more questions to consider: 1. Is there water being left in the tub? Definitely a bad pump possibility. 2. When you had to pump open, were you able to spin the impeller? Sometimes small items like a piece of gravel can stop the impeller from turning. 3. Did you check the ENTIRE drain line all the way to the standpipe? You could have a pinched or clogged line still. If you've already tried everything, then I suggest purchasing a new drain pump. The prices vary depending on model, but they all are pretty simple to replace. Generally, there is one (maybe two) screws holding it in place. Disconnect the inlet and outlet drain hoses on the the pump, and remove the electrical connector. Make sure you have the washer unplugged when you do this. save you from a huge mess the next time, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and use you shop vac to drain the water THROUGH the drain line. That way you don't have a soppy mess to clean up afterwards. Good luck and let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
