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.

To remove the tub, you'll have to remove the agitator(s), cabinet, the spanner nut and drive block.

See the following illustrated guide. You don't have to pull the pump, motor or transmission.

You also don't have to buy a special spanner wrench. I've used a short (10") pipe wrench hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner nut and by tapping the handle of the wrench, the nut should come loose.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up.

Make sure that the tabs on the drive tube align with the slots in the drive block when putting the washer back together.

Remove the agitator, you need a spanner wrench to remove the nut holding the spin tub down, then it will lift out. You will need a new tub donut seal that fits into the outer washtub, check for corrosion on the support tube, if it is corroded and not smooth, it will likely leak with the new seal.

Kenmore Series 90 washing machine, won't start cycle


First, see the Sears Parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.26912691&pathTaken=partSearch

Next, see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load, direct drive washers:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

I hate to say it but it sounds like a Timer problem.

I'd use the troubleshooting section of the Service Manual and the timer testing procedures to confirm the problem.

Note that there are two types of timers with different procedures to remove them.

Also see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer and other controls.

Kenmore 90 series washer. As the tub tries to


Hi,
It sounds like you have a bad timer. If you change the position of the timer and it does not change what is going on the the timer has to be bad. However I am not certain what you mean by the agitator turns all the time. Is it agitating while spinning and draining?

Kenmore Series 90 top loading washing does not fill with water


Well you eliminated the fill valve when you said it does fill with water. More than likely its a bad connection on the control board. I wouldn't betmy paycheck on it but thats where I'd start. Take the cover off the control board and while machine is on being really careful wiggle each wire until the water starts in the tub and you have found the problem.

The tub sometimes gets moved to one side. Open lid and center the tub before you test run try that first.
