Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Kenmore 80 series washer wont rinse/spin's what happened: I loaded my washer, made sure to evenly distrubute the clothes (since it has a tendency to shake really hard when it's on spin cycle if weight isn't distributed properly). Well about 20 minutes later I heard that load banging/shaking noise so I ran to check. I re-distributed the clothes and turned it back on and it started shaking again and then I heard a kind of bang and stopped. I tried to run the wash cycle from beging and it stops once it gets to the rinse cycle. I then turned it to the rinse cycle and it begin to fill with water..nothing else. What broke and can it be fixed without the help of a repairman? Will it cost a lot to rapair or am I better off buying a new washer?

    Yes....I just threw a load in earlier today. I heard this terrible banging noise. The whole washer was moving around due to the banging. I opened the lid and noticed that the clothes were not spinning, but the whole inside basin was just jostling around banging the sides of the washer. I evened out the clothes, thinking that the weight maybe needing more even distribution. Still, when I turned it on, it kept happening again and again.

    I am having a similar problem with my washer. It fills for the rinse/spin cycle - but does not spin. Instead the machine is just making this very loud annoying sound that is difficult to explain. It is not a clicking noise- but it is also not a vibration noise either. I removed to soggy clothes - redistributed them and it still did not spin. I ended up taking the entire load out and letting the machine finish its course. The water did drain but the machine was still not spinning and was making that annoying noise.

    The machine was here when I purchased my home - the house is about 8 years old - so I am figuring that the machine is about that old as well.

    I am not mechanically inclined, so I can not even fathom where to start in fixing it myself. Is this something that a repair man can fix -inexpensively , Or should I just consider purchasing a new machine ??

We have a Kenmore 80 series top load washer model 110.28803890. When the timer moves to spin it makes a load clicking noise and does nothing.

Timers are not supposed to make loud clicks. If it is, it's going bad. The same problem happened with my parent's Estate washer. It its on it's third timer!

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.

Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

Kenmore 80 series washer leaves soap residue on clothes no matter

After speaking with someone with trouble shooting experience in these matters, I now believe the problem lies NOT with the washer but with a bad batch of laundry detergent which fails to dissolve properly in the water.

Kenmore 80 series spins but won't ring out clothes

Check for buildup of detergent/foaming while washing. Check for oil leaks around the clutch area. Could also be the clutch lining is worn out. Replacement parts kit includes all parts

Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin

Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy

If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.

Washer trouble

Broken motor coupling. They are cheap and easy to install. Even paying a tech to do it will sure beat buying a new one, and these are great designed washers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
