Washer only spins about half the time... - Kenmore 24932 Top Load Washer

    110.24932202 Kenmore

    It will drain even when it does not spin. You can hear a motor even when it does not spin. If it is not spinning, lifting the lid and closing it does not help.

  • oldguy5 May 11, 2010

    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. Since top load and front load washers are very different, the actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem. When it doesn't spin, will it drain????? Can you hear the motor when it doesn't spin???? If you lift the lid and put it down again, will it start to spin????

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.24932202&pathTaken=partSearch

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

If it will drain but won't spin the problem is likely in the transmission. "Neutral Drain Assembly".

See the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for top load direct drive washers.

Those cams/gears etc. in that assembly keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode.

When ours had a similar problem, we looked at the transmission parts list (available on a number of sites) and on the Whirlpool site (Whirlpool makes Kenmore) and noticed that the one of the cams in the neutral assembly which is supposed to
have a small spring, didn't on ours when we tore the transmission apart again

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

Your Sears parts site has a detailed diagram of the gearcase with the assembly.

Found the part number for a kit (Whirlpool part number 388253 Neutral Assembly) for $15.00 and replaced the cams and gears.

In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators. The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt (a 1/2" socket extension works well).

You don't have to remove the drum.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

Lay the machine down (after disconnecting power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside.

Remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission.

Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft), remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 14 - 15Oz of oil, remove the clip holding the main spin gear on and check the plastic
cams.

If the cam that should have a spring doesn't, or the others look damaged, or the main spin gear is damaged the washer won't go into spin mode.

If that's the problem, install a Neutral drain kit, put everything back together carefully and the problem may be solved.

As an aside, fixing ours cost less than $30 including 80-90 weight gear oil vs. $170 for a new transmission.

Replace bearings in drum


If this is a front load washer, replacing the back drum bearings is probably not worth it cost and time. It usually requires a complete strip down and removal of the complete outer tub and drum assembly.Once removed the outer tub has to be split in half to remove the spin drum. Rear bearing is sometimes part of the back half of the outer tub so that half will need to be replaced and possibly the rear shaft on the back of the spin basket. I have done a few and it takes 2 techs and about 4 or 5 hrs to do the complete job. Only worth the time and parts if still under warranty.

Maytag washer model MAV6200AWW


pop off the front panel and look at the inside of it,if you see black dots on the bottom half and on the other walls like half way up from the bottom you have bad tub seals,the seal is made of metal and rubber,when it leaks and in spin it will shot out water and it will be black from the rubber,also you can fill it as high as it will go,then turn the timer to spin and watch where the tranny.and tub meet,if it sounds like marbles spinning and grinding and water leaks out it's the seals.if so time for new washer

Won't spin well


hi,
Pull the front off of your washer and look to the sides about half way back, there is a shock on each side which holds the tub. These often break and cause what you are describing. Look closely because often just the loop on the end breaks and at first glance they look ok.
These parts are not exspensive for you to buy.
