It appears your drive belt/coupling has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Hello, My Kenmore Model #11042822203 Front load washer stops after water goes into the drum. It makes a straining noise. It spun last time I tried it, but went slower than normal.


This could be a lot of things. There is a belt drive on the drum, The belt might be worn out, there could be a bearing that is starting to fail or it could be the motor or motor control board. Kenmore Washer Won Spin

Noise during high speed spin cycle


sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.

Kenmore washer Model 110, Serial No. 27602690 won't spin


If wash cycle operates and water drains as should before spin indicates motor spinning. Chances are bad timer If your a real fixer you can remove timer control from panel check and clean all contacts internally making sure none are stuck closed . (Have had 3 110s in my time).not easy but can be done or buy new about 150$ reassemble and check operation.

Washer wont spin in the spin cycle.Washer was full of water and making a buzzing noise.If you have any suggestions what it might be that would be great. Kenmore 80 series washer about 11 years old.


sounds like the lower bearing on the trans mission shaft is seizing up on you. had a frigedair that did the same thing. i took it apart to replace, but could not buy separate. it only came with a purchase of a new transmission,which ran $175- 275. so i junked it out. washer was only 5 years old.

Washer does not spin or agitate at all. Timer works.


Check your belt. It may have become loose.
On the top right and left of the front panel insert a putty knife about 3 inches in where the top meets the front panel.
This will release the front panel so that you can see the motor and belt operation.

Better still, a 5 month old machine call for factory authorized service.
