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 :)

GE washer will only turn in the clockwise direction instead of back and forth for the oscilation. as a result the drum just spins freely durnig the wash cycle

either a broken belt or the drive gear is stuck in spin mode If you are not a handy person who can take the back off and look/fix you will need to call in a service tech

The wife needs her washer fixed !!

First tilt this machine back and examine the belt assembly and then start the timer at spin and note the action. If you see one pulley **** and try to turn check to see if it is the motor. Then try it with the belt off. If the motor spins free let it for 2 minutes to ensure it is not failing. The worse case is the gearcase has failed and will need professional help.

Hotpoint washing machine vibrate/oscillates violently when on spin mode. Installation instructions tell you to adjust the feet, which I have done. I have also tried different sizes of load - no difference...

have you removed the transit bolts? this is the usual cause of violent vibration. if not, do not use the machine till this is done as you can cause a lot of damage

Banging during high speed spin cycle

Laco, drop the bottom front panel and see if all of the shocks are in tact on the tub assy. They just insert and lock by turning. If these are ok, check the back belt pulley. Sometimes one of the tines will split or crack and you will get this symptom. back.
