My Kenmore he front load washer stopped at the rinse and spin cycle. I don't know the model but it only a few years old. It made a load noise before stopping. I attempted to get it going again wit

Kenmore front loader. stopped at rinse. First ck to see if you washer works at different settings if so its very possible its your timmer or what called the wig wag or solonoid this switches the machine to spin & rinse. A basic service call should resolve your problem.

I have a kenmore 110.82372110 70 series heavy duty plus washing machine that drains but will not spin. Belt is intact and spinning. 'Wigwag' is oscillating


WOW you have a old washer its been a few years since i even heard "wigwag"
now then their are a few possiblities;

1) the belt is loose/ their more than a 1/2inch play in it...if yes try adjusting it by loosing top bolt on motor bracket and tighten belt by using hammer and push motor bracket to the left

2) are the plungers on the wigwag straight..if they are bent the plungers need replacing

3) is a wire on the wigwag broken..after years of "oscillating" a wire will break..the side with the red and white wire is for the spin

4) the lever that is pulled by the red wire side of the wigwag hanging up..check spring on back part of transmission to be good and pulling down the plate it attaches to when wigwag has positioned that lever in spin position

5) finally..when the above mentioned lever is in spin position( lever moves toward the rear) is the pulley above and in the center of the transmission spinning free or is it turning...if it spins free when lever is set to spin it should not spin free but move the tub to spin

Here are the part numbers;


WIGWAG w/the plungers...89814

SPIN TUBE...285897

Thanks for taking me down a trip on memeory lane..its been since 1987 that Whirlpool has made a washer with a belt all are direct drive and its been a few years (several) since i have worked on on as "vintage" as the one you have...but like riding a bicycle i have never forgot :)

Hi my hotpoint washing machine is near 3 years old the last few weeks it is making a terrible noise when on spin only. \r\nthe noise is really loud but everything is washing and drying the same its just...

Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.

If it was spinning slow before the total failure It would be your clutch ,Check your lid switch.
