This front loading washer sounds like a jet taking off during the spin cycle. It has done it from the first time it ran, so we've just assumed this is the price to pay for clothes that are practically...


This washer should make very little noise in spin. Check if there is something, like a nail, stuck in one of the holes in the spin basket. What does happen with these machines is that the support that holds the spin basket (which is behing the rear wall) breaks. But that only happens after using it for a number of years. See if you can move the spin basket up or down, or sideways when at rest. If you can, you would need a new spin basket.

Washer make noise doing spin cycle smell smoke make the power cord warm to touch


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site Joe. Usually, if a washer makes noises during spinning, it means the drive basket is broken. Make sure your pulley's are not sticking and rubbing the belt. This causes the basket to be unstable during the spin cycle. As far as the smell of smoke, try checking the belt and make sure it is not worn or loose. Inspect the motor to check for noises, grinding, or smoke. Your transmission may be burning up. Usually, the cord will remain warm, but not hot. The washer may be working extra if a belt is sticking or during the spinning process. If you have any other questions Joe, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

Kenmore washer model 110.23812100. basket not spinning during spin cycle.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23812100

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for these washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


If you can hear the motor and the washer drains during the spin cycle the Motor Coupler and Lid Switch (the usual problems with these washers) are not the problem.

These washers use a clutch which allows the "basket tube" to spin up to speed during the spin cycle.

If the clutch bands or springs are worn or damaged, the transmission cannot transmit power to the basket tube for spining.

See the following on how to remove the cabinet,agitators, basket, pump, transmission and basket tube. (It's not as difficult as it sounds.)

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

Instead of using a special spanner wrench on the spanner nut, I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked onto one of the tabs on the nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen the nut. I also put a short piece of wood under the Basket Drive Block and hit the wood instead of the drive block directly.

Check the clutch bands and springs and the tabs on top of the basket tube and the slots in the basket drive block.

Machine makes loud banging noise during the spin cycle


The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.

Washing machine makes a clanging sound during agitation/spin


Without being there to physically see what it's doing or hear the sound, I would say there's 3 possibilities. 1) drive block is slipping on basket drive / brake assembly. 2) basket drive assembly is worn where drive block seats onto it. 3) clutch slipping.

A dc error means that the clothing is not being distributed properly in the basket. This usually happens when the machine is lightly loaded. If the load seems o.k. then the problem is probably with the sensor at the side of the basket.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
