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

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-110.29842991/0582/0153200?pathTaken=

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

If the problem isn't in the switch, and the Timer continues to move, the problem is likely in the transmission.

We had the same problem:

If you lift the lid, put it down again and the washer begins to spin, the problem is likely in the transmission "Neutral Drain Assembly".

Those cams/gears etc. in that assembly keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode.

Apparently, by opening and closing the lid, torque from the motor starting throws the cams into the right gears so that the washer will spin.

Ours had the same problem, no spin unless the lid was raised and lowered or we shut off and re-started the cycle.

After looking at the transmission parts list (available on a number of sites) and on the Whirlpool site (Whirlpool makes Kenmore) we noticed that the one of the cams in the neutral assembly which is supposed to have a small spring, didn't on ours when we tore the transmission apart again

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

The Sears site for your washer may have a section on the gearcase. Check in that section for a Neutral Drain repair kit.

Found the part number for a kit (Whirlpool part number 388253 Neutral Assembly) for $15.00 and replaced the cams and gears.

In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators. The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt. You don't have to remove the drum.

OR ILLUSTRATED DESCRIPTION OF REMOVING CABINET THRU TRANSMISSION.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

Lay the machine down (after disconnecting power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside, remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission. Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft, remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 14 - 15Oz of oil, remove the clip holding the main spin gear on and check the plastic cams.

If the cam that should have a spring doesn't, or the others look damaged, or the main spin gear is damaged, the washer won't go into spin mode.

If that's the problem, install a Neutral drain kit, put everything back together carefully and the problem may be solved.

As an aside, fixing ours cost less than $30 including 80-90 weight gear oil vs. $170 for a new transmission.

Hello,

THe leading cause of the Kenmore washer not draining is a broken lid switch. http://www.fixya.com/support/r9939128-whirlpool_kenmore_estate_kitchen_aid

The part number for the lid switch on your model is 3949238 it could be purchased from your local appliance parts store or online at;

You can order parts from any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Make sure you use a complete MODEL NUMBER to ensure you find the correct parts listing. The first three sites listed also include exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. The Oasis has two pumps. One is a drain pump and one is a recirc pump. The pump you are referring to, I believe, is the drain pump. Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare.

If you do not find your model number listed at all the sites I have provided, use the part number from the Sears site for your search criteria. In some cases, the model number may not be listed, but the part numbers will.

If you need guidance on how to replace the pump, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4155097-checking_drain_pump_whirlpool_cabrio

The Cabrio is the Whirlpool version of your washer. Both models are manufactured by Whirlpool and the washers are configured the same, so these instructions should apply. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

How, can I clean the washer. I washed many time my husband dirty coverols and now its effects my washings.


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

KENMORE top load, direct drive, neutral drain washers are made by Whirlpool.

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.

The best way to completely clean the washer is to pull the agitators and drum in order to get to the tub.

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor, transmission and basket drive tube on Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper direct drive washers.

As an aside, you don't need a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've found that a short (10") pipe wrench hooked over one of the spanner nut tabs and tapped with a hammer will usually loosen the nut. Also, rather than hitting the Drive block directly with a hammer, put a short piece of wood under it first to protect it.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22632100&pathTaken=partSearch

I'd look at each of the diagrams in detail and try to determine which part it may be.

I'd also check the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manual for these washers as well as the Whirlpool parts list for their top load commercial washers (although the consumer models are basically the same.)

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Also see the Whirlpool Parts list for their Commercial washers, although the consumer models use the same transmission.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

What you're describing might be a Filter Plug that fits in the bottom of the basket. See Item # 12 in the Agitator / Basket/ Tub diagram.

As for the water draining out, it's possible that the drain hose is damaged or the end of it isn't above the water level.

I'd pull the cabinet to check the hoses and pump. See the following:

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

Check the areas for the motor and pump and the Agitator Basket and Tub.

If you've checked the hoses to and from the pump the problem points to either the pump itself or to the Centerpost gasket.

Neither of these is too difficult to replace, the Gasket requires removing most parts of the washer although the pump is an easy replacement.

My kenmore washing machine is not operational as if there was no power getting to the electronic panel. Outlet is okay and washer has operated there for many years. Is there a fuse to the panel?

For some washers, on the sub-components list there is a section on the right for manuals. If the section is there, you should be able to get a PDF file of the operating manual.

Without knowing the model number or type Neutral Drain, Cabrio etc.
I don't have a schematic.

90 series Kenmore washer won't spin


I have had this happen on a Kenmore in the past, and it was the motor coupling. It is a plastic part, and if it cracks your washer will not spin anymore. If you have the repair parts list, or can find it online, you will find the part I am referring to. Good luck.
