SOURCE: kenmore washers, heavy duty 80 series, no spin

Hello, Your problem is going to be with your lid switch, this is located normally either in the control panel or about half way down on the right side under the lid. This is a safety feature to stop you opening the lid while the machine is in a high spin. Once you have located the switch trace the wires back to the wire harness in the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch from the wire harness and with an ohms meter check for condinuity on pin 1 & 3 (the 2 outside pins not the middle this is a ground) You should find you have no condinuity and should replace this switch. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

SOURCE: ultimate care supreme leaks underneath

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

SOURCE: I have a kenmore heavy duty 70 series extra

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, directdrive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most ofthe water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Seethe Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It'spossible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

My washer works perfect except in the heavy duty fast/fast setting It agitates and seems to be working very hard then stops. it starts for awhile then stops again. There is also a smell of hot metal.


Double check your coupling work first then try the drum bearings by reaching in through the front and see how much movement the drum has? Does it rotate smoothly? Have you run it with the access panel off and listened close up?

I have a kenmore elite washer model 26962502. It makes a loud banging noise on spin and turns slowly. What has broken? Underneath it looks like two pins have come out and fallen into little plastic c


Yes , it is possible that the heavy load could have made the suspension soft or the drive shaft could have shifted or damaged.
You need to remove and check the bearing and suspension ,

The water lever sensor/switch is not working and needs to be replaced. IT has a air tube that senses the water lever by pressure. It the tube is clear then the switch needs replaciing,, If they is a clog, clear it and retry before replacing it.

Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Leaking in the back


If you bought a new washer and you still have a leak, i guess it was not the washer but where it drains into. Sink or stand pipe has a leak. unless you are useing the old drain hose from your old washer. Dry up everything and look for the sorse of water with a bright light when the washer drains .

Kenmore Heavy Duty Washer Leaking from bottom


Probably the drain pump seal has gone bad.
Check it for leaks.
If your floor is good and level look for water near the front center of the machine.
