    This washing machine doesn't appear to have a belt... direct drive. This is from an observation at the bottom of the machine when lain on it's side.

    My Kenmore 80 Series does not always spin through both the rise and spin cycle. Is it worth fixing and how difficult is it?

    leaves clothes wet

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    washer won't completely spin dry at end of rinse cycle. The machine spins slowly and sounds like it is trying to speed up but can't. Sounds like higher speed is trying to engage. Eventually it will stop still in rinse cycle and the clothes are still wringing wet. Any suggestions for the fix to this problem?

Belt going..
A bit of a pain to replace, but doable..
Belt dressing will keep it going for a while..
Dont get your fingers caught in it..
Serious injury is possible, unplug the machine
and stand on the plug while moving the
belt to goop it..
(why? that way it cant get plugged in!)

Kenmore Series 80 washer NO High Speed Spin


It could be a timer, motor or wiring problem. You would need to check for 110 volts at the timer or motor when in the higher spin mode. If you are getting 110v you have a bad motor. No or low volts you have a bad timer. The motor is either a 2 or 3 speed motor and you would have to determine which winding to check for the 110v. The schematic is usually glued to the inside rear cabinet. Please rate this post.

It probably is your clutch. You will need to remove transmission to repair this.

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

Broken washer/dryer


This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.

Kenmore 90 Series, clothes wet after spin


First thing you need to check is the speed of the spin cycle. As long as you are not overloading the machine, it should spin the clothes pretty dry. the basket drive may need to be replaced. If it is spinning very fast, then check the drain hose, make sure the water is coming out nice and fast. If not you may have a water pump problem even lint clogged inside it.
