My Kenmore Elite HE 3 model #110 4822 201 will not spin. It runs through an entire cycle and fills and drains. The drum will turn a few turns clockwise when spun by hand but then will not move further...


Hello there:
The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool and Kenmore have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Tub will not spin unless I manually turn it, then it will take hold and finish spinning. Someone told me it was the clutch. The washer is 8 years old. Is it worth fixing?


Hello,

If you are able to hear the motor running "normally" while the tub is not spinning, then it likely is the clutch. Leaving it running like this (motor on but tub still) will eventually produce an acrid smell which will confirm the clutch.

If the motor just seems to hum and not spin, then the start capacitor is likely faulted.

Both are reasonably cheap as far as parts go, but clutch replacement can be a chore. Capacitor replacement is very easy. If you are mechanically apt, you can replace the clutch itself.

This washer is definitely worth trying to save (my opinion), but ultimately it is up to how much time you have, how much money you want to put into it vs the cost of a replacement.

Wont spin


Hi,

Do you See any Error Code? If yes, let me know. Unless i could provide you with a Generic Guide that would help you :-



It doesn't spin or pump

If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns

If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Tub spins while in wash cycle


suspect what ge call a mode shifter pull front panel off by sliding putty knife along edge at each side and pressing clips front comes right off look on motor for a flashing green light (washer must be in operation) there are 2 wires in a single plug on motor these run back to transmission area with a volt/ohm meyer unplug and ck between the wires for continuity should be roughly 90 ohms if bad will not show any continuity

Washer wont run but is trying to


Sounds like the motor or capacitor (next to the motor), the capacitor helps the motor to start, once running a switch inside the motor disconnects the capacitor from circuit.

because of the grinding noise your talking about it sounds like the motor bearings are bad which would require motor replacement. but, thats normally not what cause the " not completly turning problem" your having. general thats cause be the motor speed control not sending the proper power to the motor. remove the belt and turn the motor by itself to see if the noise is really come from the motor and not the back of the tub. if it is the motor, replace the motor. if it coming from the back of the tub the replace the motor speed control. the noise coming from the back of the tub would just be the ball bearings and they do make some noise on this model but you wont hear it when the washer is running
