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.

WSM2480 Clothes Still Wet After Slow Spin Cycle

It's possible that the tub didn't drain properly in the allotted time and the remaining water is slowing your drum from coming to maximum extraction speed.

Washer spins slow or doesn't spin at all

Hello, If your machine is spinning slow, this can be an indication that your gearcase (transmission) may be going bad. One way to tell is to look under your machine. If you see any oil puddles on the floor, your gearcase needs replaced. A new gearcase runs about $200 and that doesn't include the labor charges (add about another $150). Good luck.

Washer spins but too slow

Clean out the drain pump. Sounds like water is pumping out too slow. This added weight is slowing down the spin.
If water is pumping out OK and you still have the same problem, replace the drive belt.

Series 70 kenmore elite washing machine

If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.
