Question about Kenmore 2303x Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My Kenmore Elite Model 110 23032102 sometimes will not wring the clothes dry

My washing machine is not even five years old yet and it doesn't always spin the clothes dry. My husband and I thought it was the gear case because we found oil residue under the machine. He also replaced the motor coupler just to be on the safe side. We still have the problem.

I have also read it could also be a problem in the timer, the spin solenoid, the lid switch or the basket drive mechanism. Do you know if this model machine has common problems in any of these areas and if so how can I troubleshoot?

Thanks so much,

Re: My Kenmore Elite Model 110 23032102 sometimes will...

Before you do anything else...have you fully checked the pump system...thats starting at the pump to the termination of the drain hose. Coins and objects can cause partcial blockage which can cause the symptoms you described. Let me know how you get on.

Kenmore elite HE4 moldy smell

keep door open after you use it....keep them open until you use it again.... door can be opened just a little, but can not be closed

let machine work once with highest temperature without anything inside..... with little detergent you always wash away that smell...

if you keep it closed, then moisture will remain in and provide good environment to bacteria causing black mold to live there.....

you can remove that only mechanically..... take some old dry dampcloth and wipe it away.... it will take some time and hard work.:)

Softener reservoir doesn't drain when washing. Kenmore Elite about one and a half years old.

Possible blocking on the drain from the tray, remove the accumulated softener from the dispenser , clean and check the drain line. It can be blocked with residue or dirt.

I have a Kenmore Elite top-loading washer, the spin cycle doesn't wring out the clothes dry. Is it worth repairing or should I just replace the unit?


the problem a lot of times when that happens is a broken motor coupler and a coupler is easy and cheap to replace. This video shows how to replace the coupler so watch it to see how to get to coupler to see if its broken.

I hope this helps
