    Assuming that this is a basic Sears / Kenmore top load, direct drive washer. Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number? .......... Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines......... The model number on top load washers is usually found by lifting the lid and looking above the tub. The Fixya numbers are Stock Numbers. Actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem. If it's a top load, direct drive the problem initially points to a Lid Switch but I'd have to have the model number to further diagnose it. Will it agitate??? Have you tried it on different cycles??? Will it drain??

If it is a top loader then i think you have a bad lid switch,you can remove the 2 screws under the lid to remove it,or you might just want to by pass it by putting the 2 wires together with a wire nut and black tapeing it,i do it all the time for my customers,so they don't have to pay $85 for the switch-mike

these machines can get seized bearings, which can stop the bowl from turning at full speed. probably the motor after this.the clutch should affect full spin speed only if it's worn. this fault can be a timer issue also.

The wash stop in the middle while I'm washing a comforter and say e 10 how do I get it back on to spin the ware out of it instead of starting it over?


I have been managing apartment complexes for 3 years and have been troubleshooting washer/dryer problems. This is my best advice: Sounds like its overloaded. Take the comforter out and hang it to dry. Try starting the machine again to drain the water. You might have to manually remove the water. Try washing a medium-sized load to see if it was just over-full or if there are further things happening.

I have a Kenmore Elite washing machine-wont spin


remove the lower panel. it is held on with 3 1/4 inch headed screws. With a pail to catch the water, remove the clean out cover. Ifr the clean out is plugged, the washer will not drain.

Won't spin on last cycle


The pump is supposedly self cleaning.

There's a 'pre-chamber' behind a panel at the bottom on the front. The top of the panel should tilt forward & up. Turn the 'pre-chamber' anti clockwise, after putting a shallow tray under it to catch the small amount of water that may be there.

I think I have a pdf manual (found on web somewhere) on another computer, I'll have a look & send it to you if you can give me an email address.

Maytag doesn't seem to rinse.


Try this. Run the machine set for full load, short wash. DO NOT put clothes or detergeants in the tub. Water only. Let the machine agitate for 1-2 minutes. Gently advance the timer manually untill it locks into spin. Let the machine continue to spin until it stops on its' own and begins to refill. At this point lift the lid and see if there is any access water in the tub.

Most of the time this condition is caused by a blackage in the drain line. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked in any way.

Also, there are times when I've had to removes socks and other objects from the tub to pump hose. It only take a 10% block to cause the machine to retain water.
