More than likely, you have lost your basket drive and clutch system. Its a pretty detailed job, having to remove the baskets, transmission, etc. Not usually a fix-it-yourself type repair unless you are really handy and have a decent amount of tools. The basket drive usually runs around $100.00, clutch kit around $40.00. Service charges could be from the low $70's to above $200.00 (Sears) in some cases. Let me know if this helped you out, or if you need further help. Thanks and good luck!!!!

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

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.

Kenmore wont agitate or spin


The motor has a temperature cutoff. When the motor gets hot it switches off and won't go again till it cools. But something is causing the motor to overheat. Some overload.

Kenmore Oasis has LF code on and won't reset


The LF code indicates "Long Fill" which means it is taking too long for the water to fill the washer (times out). From the owner's manual:

"LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press STOP to clear display.

Here's a suggestion I found that worked for me:

Check your drain hose to see it it's stuffed too far down the standpipe. Another poster had this problem and it gave her LF errors. If the drain hose hangs down too far it can siphon water out of the washer, and then the washer thinks it's taking too long too fill. There's supposed to be a U-shaped plastic bracket that sets the length of the drain hose where it goes into the standpipe. Your installer may have tossed it.
