This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.20902991+

See number 28 in the control panel section.

Also see the Whirlpool PDF Operating and maintenance manual for top load direct drive washers.

It's quite likely, since the gentle spin works, that the "spin speed switch" is defective. Part number 3953144

Not spining- water standing can't get water to


If your washer is not spinning ! You first need to drain it. Then underneath your washer you will find your drive system. It will consist of drive belt, drive pulley or pullies and motor. Belt could have come off , if so check the condition before reinstalling, also some times from overloading the belt will spin on the pulley which will make it hot and thanks to the manufacturer the pulley is likely plastic. Parts supply shops best source for belts and possibly pulley though sometimes they want to sale you the whole motor with pulley which you don't need. If so uae internet to find your pulley probably under 10.00 dollars. Hope this helps.

Kenmore series 90 washer won't go into Spin


This is probably a bad drive coupler between the motor and the gearcase assembly.

Occasionally won't spin and when it does it is not at full force


You need the coupling replace between the motor and the transmission.  It's a $20 part.

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.

Kenmore 80 series makes noise in sping cycle


Its the transmission. Try to find a used appliance store in your town. Most save used parts and you should be able to pick up a used tranny for around 100 bucks.

Kenmore 90 Series, clothes wet after spin


First thing you need to check is the speed of the spin cycle. As long as you are not overloading the machine, it should spin the clothes pretty dry. the basket drive may need to be replaced. If it is spinning very fast, then check the drain hose, make sure the water is coming out nice and fast. If not you may have a water pump problem even lint clogged inside it.
