Kenmore 80 series washer leaving clothes soaked after the spin cycle

Hi everyone,
Please help...I have a Kenmore 80 series washer that works through all cycles but after spinning, leaves clothes(all size loads) soaked. We have to dry clothes usually twice and thats after wringing all of them out before putting them in the washer. I have made sure that it is spinning by cracking the lid and watching the spin cycle but after the spin cycle, clothes are lying in bottom of the washer soaked not stuck around the drum and dry like they used to be. I have taken it apart and nothing is stuck in the drain pipe. I have no idea what to do but I called Sears and was told that it would cost $215 just to send someone out to fix it. Also does around the top of the drum there is a disgusting black mildew smelling goo around the case around the drum and the actual drum itself. I would also like to clean this but the water does not go up this high and it is difficult to get to. Any cleaning ideas would also be appreciated.

    Yes, I have checked the entire draining hose and there is no obstruction. I did that when I took the washer apart

  • WillieT213 Apr 24, 2008

    If it is the clutch on the basket drive, will the washer spin at all? And as far as the cleaning, as I mentioned earlier, it is hard to get to. Can I separate the basket from the drum to clean it and how easy is this?

  • WillieT213 Apr 24, 2008

    If this is my problem do you have any idea of the cost of the clutch or how I can get one?

  • WillieT213 Apr 24, 2008

    It looks like the motor is spinning as usual when drying

  • WillieT213 Apr 24, 2008

    Can anyone tell me how to get one of these clutches and how to install it?

    Oh sorry bestdarngood, I see your reply. Do you know where I would get this clutch?

  • WillieT213 Apr 24, 2008

    Here is the serial number : 110.26882502 Can you tell me what part number that I will need? I can't find it on the website you provided?

  • WillieT213 Apr 24, 2008

    Well, you're right...If this is my problem, it looks like it may be cheaper and less time consuming to let Sears repair it or to just buy another washer. Thanks to everyone for your help!

In order to fix this, you will need to take off the outer panels and check the motor inside and the clutch, most likely the clutch is worn down and will need to be replaced, I have posted a picture of what it should look like.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or need further help, most likely replacing the clutch will solve your problem.

Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya

    To remove the clutch, lift off the round metal washer at the base of
    the output shaft. Then remove the "E" clip and then pry out the
    wire-looking clip (loose end first) from the inside edge of the 4 tabs.
    The clutch will now lift off; make sure to retain the plastic insert.
    Reinstall the parts in the reverse order on the new transmission. Clear
    the breather hole in the top of the transmission (arrow pointing to it)
    with a needle or straightened paper clip. Transfer motor mount plate (I
    usually re-install it upside down from the way it was on the old
    tranny) and install the new coupler. Gently tap the coupler onto the
    input shaft until it is flush (I use a ratchet extension so as not to
    break the coupler with the hammer). Apply small amount of grease to
    output shaft and slide back into chassis. Assemble in reverse order
    from this point. Make sure to reinstall the plastic and metal spacer
    clips before installing the agitator. Once cabinet is back on and
    machine is back in place, lift the back of the machine up and down to
    reset the rear leveling legs. Any further questions are certainly
    welcome.

It sounds like the clutch is out on the basket drive. They wear out over time and won't let it spin to full speed. The black goo around the tub is most likely left over fabric softener. I only use dryer sheets. You have to take the shell off to clean it but you also have to take the shell off to change the basket drive.

    The clutch is part #285785. But at that point I would put in a whole basket drive. Part #285792. But you will also need a spanner wrench to remove the nut that holds the basket drive in and holds the basket in the tub. At that point you are not much below sears cost. You may call a few independent or Whirlpool servicers in your area to check prices now that you now what you need.

Kenmore Series 70 Top Loading Washing Machine Model # 110.20722991 Serial# CL 1134809 Hello, Our washing machine is leaving our clothes soaking wet when finished. What could the problem be?


2 things are possible. Can you tell if the spin cycle is engaging? If the spin cycle is not engaging properly or very fast, then the water will not leave the clothes. less likely is that the machine is not draining the water away properly or fast enough.

No spin cycle


This is usually caused by the pressure switch. Here is a link with the other possible problems. To check the pressure switch follow the link to the video. http://appliancehelponline.com/topwashernospin.html

Kenmore 80 Series Won't advance to spin


You will need to replace the timer. Let me explain why;
After the agitation cycle, the machine will enter a drain mode where the basket will not spin, only drain. After some time, the timer should 'pause' causing the machine to engage the spin clutch. The timer contact has become stuck, not allowing the pause, thus never entering engaging the spin clutch.

My Kenmore Ultra Fabric care II, 80 series


Hello Friend, The problem is the motor coupler has broke. Replacement is easy, it's installed between the motor and transmission. Almost anyone could replace that part themselves.
