1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Kenmore elite washer model 110 won't empty water and spin


Does it agitate? If it does not then it maybe the coupler that connects the motor to the transmission. If you hear a clicking sound. This may be your problem.

Won"t spin or agitate. Makes a loud rattling noise


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Roper, Estate, Kenmore, Amana, and Frigidaire), you may have a damaged or broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers use a motor coupling between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) in place of a drive belt. This configuration is known as "direct-drive". The coupling can break through normal wear and tear. Washing frequent loads of heavy items and reduce the life span of the coupler. Common symptoms include the following:

1. No spin or agitation.
2. Washer will fill and empty.
3. Drive motor still runs.
4. Strange rattling, grinding or clicking noise during agitation or spin cycles as the drum sits still.

If your washer is exhibiting these symptoms, then its probably a safe bet that the motor coupling is bad.

The following link explains how to replace one:

The part number for a replacement motor coupling is inlcuded in the link I provided. Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also included helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

If the washer is top load then it is probably the drive coupling between the motor and the transmission.

Kenmore Elite Model 11023032101 will not Spin


if it agitates and pumps out water it is not the lid switch.  you most probably have a bad brake/clutch mechanism.  the fact that it spins tells me the transmission is good

I have a kenmore 80 series top load washer. the agitation has gotten weaker but still works but now it will not spin after the rinse cycle. any ideas?


sounds like you have a problem with the motor. It could either be that the motor itself is going bad or it could be that the coupling between the motor and the transmission is broken. Have a look underneath the machine and look for bits of rubber. If there is some rubber down there its probably a busted coupling otherwise you may need a new motor.

No, this is probably a direct drive that has a faulty plastic coupling from motor to transmission. Go to:
