My washer does not spin or drain.


If the unit will agitate but not spin or drain I recommend checking the lid switch first. You should be able to hear the lid switch click as you slowly open & close the lid. If you don't hear a distinct click, replace the switch.
Here is the part you need.

My Kenmore Elite Quiet Pac 4 allows water to slowly come in after a cycle has finished and everything says it is off. What is the problem?


There is a valve inside your washer that needs to be replaced. Call sears and have them replace it. You'll need to give them the model and serial #'s.

Water goes into the machine but the spin cycle don't work


Most washer under the lid you will see a peg of some sort that goes into a slot or hole on top face of washer. That is called a switch. It is designed to be a safety device, so when the washer is on that high speed spin cycle a child or not to smart adult does not open lid when washer is spinning at high speed. The switch is designed to only allow the machine to spin when lid is closed. It appears to me, which happens all the time, is from normal use, that switch might of Went out. Here is what you do to test it. Carefully!, have lid open and put washer on spin cycle and take a flat head screw driver in the slot where lid peg goes and depress screwdriver in slot, and listen as you put it in slot and release it, do it a few times, if you don't hear a clicking sound of like click, click, then switch is out and will not allow washer to spin. Switch then needs to be replaced which is cheap and pretty easy to do your self. With deal with that once you have determined the switch is working or not. Thanks mike

The washer fills up with water and doesn't do anything else. the water is still in the washer.


check the lid switch,set the timer on spin,open the lid and stick a screw driver into the slot where the lid strike normally would close down into,push up and down it should make a clicking sound and the washer should start to spin and drain out the water,if it doesn't click ,spin and drain the lid switch is bad.

Washer won't spin during rinse cycle. agitates fine during was cycle.


The lid switch is probably your culprit. the washer won't spin or drain if the lid switch is defective. Try pushing down on it with a pen or small screwdriver and see if it will spin then. There should be a slight clicking nois when it is activated, although it will sometimes click even though it is not working.

Kenmore Elite is now LOUD during spin cycle


It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Will not spin. makes ticking/clicking sound but no spinning.


For washer that's not spinning but making a clicking noise, then your washer could have a broken coupling. I believe that with Frigidaire, they're calling it as "Gear-crank"

Please check the link below so that you could see what a gear-crank is:

You need to contact a repair tech to check the coupling of you washer. If it's the one on the picture, then it would only costs you $5 for the coupling.

Have a great day!

What makes the washer spin out, this one will not spin


If it agitates but doesn't spin, it is probably the lid switch. Check to see if you get a click when opening and closing the lid to the washer. If you get the click, it might still be bad. If you don't get the click, it can be bad or the finger that depresses the switch is out of adjustment or broken.
