Kenmore Commercial washer 110.20172001

Help! Our commercial Kenmore washer won't run. Washer fills with water and then just sits, while waiting to switch to agitate mode we can smell
electical wire smell. Felt motor hot as a pistol. Checked wireing found rats had eaten wires in harness getting into coin box. Fixed this wireing problem
and thought we had the problem completed but it didn't seem so. Still doing same thing. Fills with water then just sits with wire smell. Thanks Frances

Sounds like motor is bad. See if you can find the 2 main wire leads on the motor and hook up directly to see if you can get it to work.

My whirlpool commercial washer is not draining properly. The close is extremely wet but there no excess water in the drum. what could cause this issue?

Sounds like the water drained but the drum did not spin. Select spin and see if the drum actualy turns. If you hear a motor running then it could be just the drive.

Kenmore washer 22632100- a couple of days ago, found a small black plastic ring object in with the washed cloths. It has small tongs that appear to provide a screen function. Looks like it was glued to the...

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22632100&pathTaken=partSearch

I'd look at each of the diagrams in detail and try to determine which part it may be.

I'd also check the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers as well as the Whirlpool parts list for their top load commercial washers (although the consumer models are basically the same.)$FILE/L-55.pdf


Also see the Whirlpool Parts list for their Commercial washers, although the consumer models use the same transmission.

What you're describing might be a Filter Plug that fits in the bottom of the basket. See Item # 12 in the Agitator / Basket/ Tub diagram.

As for the water draining out, it's possible that the drain hose is damaged or the end of it isn't above the water level.

I'd pull the cabinet to check the hoses and pump. See the following:

Whirlpool commercial washer stopped running mid

Most likely the pump is plugged with lint, pillow stuffing, a small object, or some other obstruction which is not allowing the motor to turn.

Maytag MAH20PD washer does not do the High Spin Cycle

with what you have described the problem should be in the door lock unit. there is a check switch that gets pressed down and sends a signal to the computer board telling it that it is locked. if the switch isn't working then that signal will not be sent and the washer will just turn and never enter spin. replace the switch and this will clear up the problem
