Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

The washing mechine will not spin (417-44152400). I opened up the back to look at the belt and it is fine. No parts or pieces are laying on the bottom of the machine.

Make sure the door lock light is on! as if the door does not lock and the machine sees that properly it will not spin..
second, make sure that all the water is being pumped out of the unit. if the unit senses excessive amp draw thru the pump it assumes there is still water in the unit and will not enter the high speed spin cycle. the pump may be partially cloged, or have foreign material wound around the motor armature shaft causing the problem.
if you remove the kick plate below the door there should be a technician data sheet (do not loose this and return it to the envelope when done) stuck to the side of the interior of the unit. this sheet will or can walk you thru diagnostics to further help you determine whether the motor or motor control board is bad if neither the door latch or pump are the culprit..
best of luck, and have fun,
ttfn

Why does my kenmore washer 110 fill with water but won't wash or spin?


Do you happen to hear a humming noise coming from the machine after the tub fills? This might indicate that the motor is spinning, but the belt that connects the motor to the rest of the machine works is broken. It is located underneath the washer. Tip the washer a bit and have a look. If it's broken, you'll probably find the belt laying on the floor. Take that to an appliance parts store where they can match it up with a new one. Installation is not too difficult. The belt will go around the motor pulley, the transmission pulley, the water pump, and in some cases, a spring-loaded tensioner. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

Tip

Washing Machine, Apliance help.


Washer works great during the wash and rinse cycle,the agitator works fine for those but the drum will not spin on the spin cycle. A couple of things go on when the washer goes from wash to spin, the motor pivots, tightens the belt and the drum spins up to speed. I had the same problem on my Maytag, I replaced the belt and the pullys and it has been washing and spinning great ever since, The belts can be accessed by removing the front panel, or disconnecting the machine and laying it down, if you see a lot of fine black dust,(rubber), the belt is probably worn out, change the pullys also at this time, it is cheap insurance that everything will go well. make sure that the motor pivots smoothly, if it does not, correct this issue first and run it. That may solve your problem, A great website that i use for parts and info is www.repairclinic.com. They have parts diagrams for tons of appliances, and stock parts, I have used them many times in the past.

Why wont my washer spin?


You need to replace the drive coupler. It is the piece that is between the motor and the transmission. You can see this part when you tilt the washer back and lay under it and look between the motor and the tranny. This is a very cheap part only about 25 bucks.

Kenmore 110.2970090 Not spinning, motor still runs


Your drive coupler is broken. It is the rubber piece between the transmission and the motor. This is what makes your washer spin. You can change this by taking the 2 screws out of the control panel and then flipping it back. Next pop the 2 brass clips holding on the case and pull the case off the machine. Next lay the washer back and pull off the pump and the motor. You will see how to get it off and on from here.

Washing mechine 1200 hoover


Hi, It sounds like it might need new brushes in the motor. Sometimes just before they wear down completely, they will wash but not spin, this is because the spin needs more power. Tom.
