Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes according to the picture above. If no light you probably have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.

How can I check the motor switch (pt# 8529896) on Kenmore washer mod# 110.26912690?

There are a lot of things that can cause this. A motor failure is rare and if the motor comes on then it is not the switch. There is a coupling that connects the motor to the transmission. IT is designed to fail if the machine is overloaded.

Cabrio washing machine wont finish spin cycle and comes up with a code blinking F 51. how do i fix this problem I cant finish one load of laundry, without this cod F 51 poping up. thank you wendy

The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems.
Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation.

With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub.

You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

My washer wont spin

Most likely it's a motor coupling. (Between motor and transmission - brakes when you overload it.)

your washer doesnt have a belt, it is a direct drive with a coupling on the motor, so that is not likely your problem.
i would look to see if the lid switch is broken, when the switch wont work it wont spin or drain. if the coupling is broken it wont agitate or spin, but will drain the water.
just look under the top and see if the switch is just hanging loose. it has 2 screws holding it to the cabinet and a wiring harness that goes to the control panel.

Washer wont work

If the motor is running but no agitation or spin is happening, then most likely the coupling between motor and gearbox has gone- look for black sooty deposits under your washer as proof. There may also be one or more pieces of white plastic. This coupling usually goes if the washer is overloaded regularly.

Dear usaguitarman Welcome to
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, washer fills with water. then the motor overload protector starts clicking
in and out.and there is a burning smell. I am able to spin the water back out.
The belt needs to be replaced but I don't know if that could cause my problem.

Yes I believe the belt could be the problem!
That is more than likely the burning smell!

Change to belt.!
While your at it, unplug the machine for 5 minutes or more and then it will reset the system too!

Kenmore oasis washer

top loaders use the same motor for wash pump and spin to spin the clothes the motor direction is reversed and a solenoid releases the drum brake allowing the drum to rotate this is governed by a set of clutch shoes in the pulley if these are worn then the machine wont spin at full speed but ol on the display indicates overload so check the solenoid is releasing the drum usually heard as a loud clunk on spin start
