SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

SOURCE: Kenmore spin cycle thumping noises

I just went through the same issue with my Kenmore front loading washing machine. I assumed (and a Sears repairman also told me) that it is the bearings. After I took the drum assembly out, I saw the rear drum broken and the inner tub hitting the outer tub. I ordered the outer drum assembly and only when I took the inner drum assembly out I realized the the "Spider" attached to the inner drum (and spindle) was broken. Entire drum assembly cost $417 + shipping and it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new washer. I like the front loaders because they save water and good for the environment, but the US manufacturers have not yet perfected the technology like European manufacturers (or they don't want the machines to last too long just like cars). Anyway, I am looking into welding the spider tomorrow. If not will return the outer tub assembly and buy a top loading washer for $300!

I have a kenmore front load washer, model: 417 42042100
It makes loud noise and becomes louder during the spin cycle.
The drum is loose when I inspected through the front door.
My problem is how to open the cabinet and replace any broken parts.

Thanks.

SOURCE: kenmore series 80 washer makes loud knocking noise during spin cy

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

Our Kenmore top load model 22422 started having problems with the spin cycle. Once it gets to the spin cycle, it makes a terrible grinding like noise - it is not spinning. However it will drain if you let...


The double shaft motor does double duty. One direction for wash and another direction for spin. In wash mode the water stays put in the tub because the pump is running backwards. In spin mode the motors turns in opposite direction. This pumps the water out and spins the clothes dry. From what you have described the drive coupler is toast.

Won't spin clothes dry... possibly bad wiring??


Casa, make sure your model number starts with 417.43042 otherwise this post is trash. First have your husband drop the bottom panel and check the drain pump for debris, coins, etc. This model will not go into high spin if the pressure switch detects there is water in the tub. There was also a service flash out on this model regarding the timer not advancing. This had to do with electrical noise generated by the opening and closing of the timer contacts. This sent corrupt signals to the motor controller and the washer would stall in cycle. They corrected this problem by adding 3 jumpers to the motor controller. Part 134306000. My feeling is that you have a pump drain issue, but it's hard to tell without being there....Catriver...post back.
