Kenmore Washing Machine won't agitate, spin, or drain

My washing machine quit working. It will not spin or drain and makes a noise when it tries to agitate (it doesn't actually agitate, but moves slightly). We replaced the pump but that did not solve the problem. Any ideas? Thank you!

    You were right -- it was the motor coupling. Thank you so much!

    My daughter was helping with laundry and forgot to shut the lid. The water filled up and didnt finish the cycle since the lid was still open. Now we cant get the cycle to start or to empty the remaining water.

    I have the same problem with my Kenmore washer. Fills up, but agitate, does drain water out but not thoroughly. If it is motor coupling, is it hard to replace or can it be done without a service call?

    My washing machine only fills up with water and then it wont agitiate, drain or spin. it doesn't make any noise, it just sits there. Its not the coupling, because we just replaced it.

    My washer will fill with water but will not aggitate. It makes a noise and kind of smells when it is trying. If I skip the cycle on to "spin" it will drain and spin but it smells like its burning. Help please?

The problem sounds like the motor to transmission coupler. If it is not draining or spinning you may find that the lid switch is inop.

It sounds like the motor needs to be replaced, you can drain the water by taking the drain hose from the drain and lowering down water will drain.

Tip

Washing Machines will not rinse or spin


If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.
What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.

What causes a washing machine not to drain and spin?
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing.

Machine won't spin, therefore water cannont be emptied. The agitator works. I have a top open Kenmore 90 series machine.

Loud clicking noise - wont agitate or spin


I had the same clicking noise. Turned out to be the coupling between the motor and transmission. A $15 plus 1 hour labor fix
