Hi,

More likely it sounds like Bad Coupler but still you need to check in the following order :-

Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Before that, follow the below trick :-

Start a cycle and press the cancel to get it into the 2 minute drain sequence. Listen to the drain motor. If it sounds like it's running then it is. If it sounds like it's jammed then something is jamming the impeller blade of the drain motor. The sump area (bottom of the pump) I've never seen to clog the drain, usually when you have a clogged drain line it's either the hose or the disposal that the hose goes into. You can take the kickplate off and disconnect the drain hose near the front middle/right area and blow through it to make sure it's clear.


Let me know the update.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My kenmore serie 300 washer only wash with cold wather no hot wather


If I understand, you are saying that you are not getting any hot water coming into the washer. First, I would make sure that you have hot water available at the washer spigots. SLOWLY unscrew the hot water hose at the hot water spigot and see if you have hot water available. If you do, the problem is usually at the water inlet solenoids, or if you are lucky, the water screen filter. Turn off the how water spigot and unscrew the hose at the washer. There is a screen there at the washer water inlet, see if it is clogged. If not, the problem is most likely the solenoids. To replace the solenoid unit requires some disassembly of the washer.

KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,


Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..

Leak top load kenmore


Excellent use of your deductive reasoning skills. You may be right on both assumptions. It is not uncommon for the pump or the drain hoses to develop leaks over a period of time. You will need to remove the outside casing of the washer, however to get a good look. This link explains how to replace the washer pump:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump

Even if it is not the pump, it gives you necessary steps on how to disassemble the washer. Step 7 of the write up tells you where the pump is located. Inspect the two hoses for cracks and leaks as well.

NOTE: You will need to by-pass the lid switch, however, with the case removed in order to fill the washer with water. Or...you can fill the wash tub partially, shut the unit off, unplug the washer and remove the case and look for the leak that way as well. Let me know if you wish to attempt to by-pass the lid switch - this does not involve cutting and splicing any wires.

If you require further assistance please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
