Ge washer whre5550k2ww tub wont spin


It may be the rotor position sensor. i used you tube tutorials. There are many washers that are the same, but different brand names. Matag, whirlpool, kenmore elite oasis, all the same and parts. I got lucky and a cleaning hack. It was to clean between the tob and thre shell. This is located up under where you cannot see, use a mirror and look wherr your detergent, fabric softer and bleach dispensers are. And i found a tutorial on diagnosting code that will do it for you. I think it was holding a cycle 5x for 5 seconds and it will tell you. Whats wrong, Good Luck

I have a Kenmore washer #11026002010. I am having problems with the water overfilling and not progressing to the next cycle. Would you have info on the fault codes and also the recalibration procedure


Does it sound like it wants to spin? If so more than likely the motor coupler broke causing your washer to not spin. It is one of the most common parts that fail.

Anyhow Sears is the best bet for your answers they even list all the steps needed to trouble shoot.

Motor locks up when the washer tries to spin opposite direction to agitate


When rotated on the opposite direction to agitate the main pulley below the drum releases the brake in order to spin, remove the pulley and lower plastic components and check condition, when they become worn the brake is not released properly hence no rotation.

Clothes still wet after final spin cycle


It sounds like you might have a broken belt or the belt just slipped off the pulley!

Washer noy spining water out.....


First check to make sure there is nothing sticking through the holes in the basket keeping the tub from turning. (screws, nails, etc)
Next, tilt the machine back and turn the large pulley by hand. If you turn it one direction it will agitate, turn it the other direction and it should release the brake and spin the basket.
As you turn it the direction that releases the brake, you should see the brake just above the pulley raise up. If it is not pushing the brake up, you probably need a new pulley assembly.
If the brake release on the pulley is ok, the brake liner may have come apart and the brake will have to be replaced.
Post back with any questions. You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your model number and look at parts diagrams to get a better idea of how it is put together.
Thanks/Mike
