Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
HI. Ok, just to make sure this is not a simple control fault, I would advise to unplug the unit for five minutes. This will force a core reset. Both control modules will be forced to reset. Once the five minutes have passed, simply plug in the unit, and try to initiate a wash cycle once again. If the same errors continue to present a problem, and the spin cycle is not operating correctly, this will rule out a this particular fault. Move on to the belt inspection.
To inspect the belt, simply remove the rear panel. Twelve screws secure the back panel to the washer. Remove the 12 screws and remove the back panel. Once the belt and pulley are exposed, check the tension of the belt physically. If there is excessive play, this will be the reason for the no spin. the belt is stretched. If the belt is tight, and the structure of the belt is sound, The belt is not the issue.
Now. If all is well with the belt, this will lead to a failed Motor Control Board. This module controls the spin functions during the selected cycle. This will be the culprit. once this damaged device is replaced, the unit will spin properly.
Motor Control Board Part Number Is # 134409900
