Kenmore series 80 wont spin without helping to spin by hand.

The machine alway made a load klunk when shifting to spin.Now you have to catch the machine right when its ready to spin and help turn it by hand to get started.

This sounds like the drive belt is worn out and slipping. You'll need to turn off the power and water to the machine, pull it away from the wall, remove the back panel and change the belt. It's under the main drum assembly and visible. This isn't the easiest thing to do, so if you are not compfortable with this type of work, you may want to consider calling for service.

Our 80 series kenmore became unbalanced with a loud klunk. The metal shell came off the machine. It will not spin but will work on wash?

When in spin made loud klunking and screaching noise. now will not work in spin cycle without making loud klunking noise


Pull off the bottom panel, (three 1/4" screws along bottom). Check for chunks of concrete hanging down, or in the bottom pan. I have seen the lower front counter-weights on the HE2 break off several times. If not, reach in and give the basket a hard spin by hand, if you hear clunking or grinding, or the basket feels loose, you have a bad basket brace (usually caused by slop in the rear bearing). You would need to replace the rear shell (comes with a pre-installed bearing) and the basket. Depending on age, these parts may be in warranty, check your manual.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.
