Washer spins loudly and seems to free wheel and other times does not drain properly


Check the motor to transmission coupling, probably broken.
Also check the inner basket drive block. The drive block is attached to the top of the spin tube-basket drive assembly under the inner basket. The spanner nut is under the agitator, locking the basket to the spin tube. The drive block has two slots that lock onto the two ears of the spin tube. Replace the damaged drive block, and/or replace the basket drive/brake assembly.

I get an F50 code - how do I run the test to see if I can fix it.


The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

My washer is not operating properly in spin cycle. It seems that the motor is running much faster than it should while the basket is spinning much more slowly than it should.


Hi,
You have not specified your washer type or model, but the most likely cause for the syptoms you decribe is the drive belt between the washer motor and the basket pulley which is slipping. It may be possible to adjust the belt tension or replacing the drive belt will almost certainly solve your problem.
Best wishes,

Model 23832 Spin cycle doesn't spin


I believe this is the direct drive model. Your clutch is slipping. There is a quick easy fix available that I have used in the past. Remove cabinet from washer. Make sure you know the easy way to do this... 2 screws on top back of washer and 2 holding control panel. cabinet tips toward from of unit and off. Real easy... Remove wire harness from motor under basket. Remove 3 screws holding motor to basket. Remove agitator inside basket. 1 screw holds it in place. Remove entire motor and shaft from unit. Clutch is attached to shaft on top of motor. Pinch spring to remove clean everything with alcohol. Insert #10 washer between cup and spring to give a little more tension. Replace and viola.... all should work well.

F51 & F72 Codes


The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems. Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation. With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub. You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

Basket Re-engagement Failure.

F then 72 flashes when the basket check routine fails to determine if the basket is re-engaged after being disengaged.
Is the basket floating? If yes, pump out water. See Long Drain.
Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.

The basket in our kenmore elite washer is not spinning or agitating. It is going through all the cycles and seems to be running fine underneath but the basket it's is not moving.


Hi, It sounds like the coupler has broke. It connects the transmission to the motor.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Kenmore 70 series won't always spin. It agitates but does not always spin. Lid switch, tranny, what?


It could be lid switch. It could be spin basket drive as well. Will you ewasher agitate with the lid up? Does the washer motor run but the tub doesn't spin? If the motor runs in the spin cycle with the lid down, it is not the lid switch.
The spin basket drive is driven by the transmission.
Let me knwo if I can help further. Thanks
