SOURCE: WHAT IS THE LOAD CAPCITY SIZE OF WASHER MODEL 110.20702990

On newer, and sometimes a little newer, Whirlpool and Kenmore (Kenmore is made by Whirlpool) considers a few things in determing capacity. Most of the inner baskets are the same size, but they also add in agitator action into the mix. A Kenmore with an auger top agitator would have higher capacity than a Kenmore with just a normal agitator, even though it has the same sized drum. So a super capacity washer would have theoretically less CLEANING CAPACITY than a super capacity plus. The agitator action is actually what determines capacity on these models. So, with that in mind, cubic load should be about the same on both units. Sorry that I had to go into "Bill Nye The Washer Guy" mode, but thats about the only way to describe. Let me know if I can confuse you any more haha. Seriously though, if you need further help or info, write back, and will try to get you some other information. Remember, this theory only works on top load "normal people" washers, not the front loaders.

SOURCE: kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate

this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.

SOURCE: GE washer agitates but won't spin

I think you may have a stopped up pump does it drain the water out if not it will not spin. A putty knife inserted 2 inches in from each side will release the spring catches and gently pull on front as you release sprins then look to the bottom right hand side and there is the pump clamp the tub to pump hose or **** water out with a shop vac take off tub to pump hose and then two 3/8 in screws that hold down the pump turn over where you can look in the pump may have an obstruction as always disconnect power before service.

I have a GE, 4 to 5 years old, Super Capacity WJRR4170G1WW. When it agitates, the drum goes back and forth with the agitator. I though it should stay still. Please advise.


sorry to say you have a very expensive to repair problem ):
the transmission has a brake built into which is suppose to hold the tub in place during the agitation cycle and then release on the spin cycle to spin. the brake isnt engaging and the only fix is to replace the transmisson which is very expensive.
it may work for awhile then as it gets worse and the tub moves more during the wash cycle water will slosch out of it all over the floor,sorry to break the bad new

Washer will not agitate but fills/drains/spins


Could be related to pressure switch which measures the amount of water in tub. Does it fill and then just sit there?

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.


Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Not spinning


I am assuming that you washer is agitating, right? If it is...and, your symptoms are: normal fill, agitate, but when it gets ready to spin, the washer stops - this is usually a symptom of a defective lid switch. Try opening and closing the washer lid, you should hear a distinctive clicking noise as the lid closes. This will activate the lid switch, which will control the timer and all other functions. The lid switches come in two basic types for Kenmore:

1. It will be located on the right-hand side of the lid opening as a small slot with a plunger from the lid activating it as it closes.

2. It will be located on the left-hand side of the lid opening in the back with a rod on the lid hinge activating the switch.

This is a fairly common problem that can be easily fixed. The switch usually costs about $35.

If this sounds like the symptoms you are having, let me know and I can determine what part number you might need, and give you advice on how to fix it.

If not, please post back with comments and elaborate in a little more detail. I hope this helps you.

Washer make a clicking noise


Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.
