Question about Washing Machines

Kenmore Washing machine spins slow

Machine washes normally but will not kick into the "fast" spin cycle. It just spins the same "slow" spin it uses during the delicate cycle.

    The washer has 3 wash cycles. With the Heavy and regular cycles it is supposed to spin at a "fast" speed but it only spins at the slower speed which is supposed to be for the "delicate cycle." Therefore it doesn't get the clothes as dry as it should.

    Correct, no "speed selection switch" just the 3 different cycle settings. I'll try the timer. Thanks!

    If the switch is not bad depending on the model underneath towards the back there is an electronic part called the speed board. This could also be the problem.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenmore-Elite-HE... Here is an example of the speed board. you can look your model number up at www.searspartsdirect.com and that will give you the part numbers. You can then use those numbers to search on ebay. I have gotten a few parts this way makes it a bit more affordable.

If it has a speed selection switch than this switch is likely to be bad, other than that are you sure that It once has high spin in the cycle you are using??

    are you saying that it has no speed selection switch?? If so, then the problem is likely the timer.

My washer is stuck in fast speed. Can't make it agitate in slow speed. Model # 110 26892690 .


I assume you mean spin.You should have a slow/half spin selection on your machine if not select a delicates or wool program this will give you a slow spin.

Maytag LAT8426AAM agitator only works in delicate cycle


Best guess is a timer contact problem, usually caused by advancing the timer by hand without pushing the dial in to stop the machine first.This causes burnt contacts.

It spins during rinse cycle but the clothes don't spin dry. Still very wet, even after a second spin without any more water being added.


It may not be spinning fast enough. Is the agitator operating at normal speed?

Possible causes for slow spin are overloaded washer, slipping belt, bad bearings in the motor or clutch, or slipping clutch.

Another possibility is a problem with the pump, but I suppose you would also see some water left in the bottom of the machine in that case.

Hello The washing machine is not going through


The lid switch has failed. It will not spin because it is a safety device.

Machine will not agitate during rinse cycle of normal wash.


The brake is part of the mechanism to function the spinning. The agitation is another mechanism to function in the other direction of the same motor. This mechanism is below of the other. The helix part needs to replace to fix this. This should be done when you change the brake. Of course this is a result from the brake change since you have take this apart before you can get in the spinning mechanism. It is good that now you don't have to touch the spinning mechanism, but only the agitation mechanism. It is not from the tight belt. Hope this can help.

Washer just fills up and that is it


Sounds like a winding on the motor is burned out or the timer is defective. The motor uses a low power circuit during the delicate cycle both during wash and spin. The timer selects which winding is energized (fast or slow).
