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.

My maytag washer model pav2300aww will not spin even though it agitates and drain but when it comes to the spin cycle it just kind of hums I looked at the bottom of the washer while it was in spin cycle...


Possible the revolution takes place on the top end of the pulley and belt but the centre stem of the agitator is not moving or it is slipping. It can be due to friction in the stem of the agitator due to clogging of dirt and the best option is to remove and clean the agitator.

Self propel does not work and it is real hard to push this way. We checked the belts and they both ok. Not sure what else to look at, the on line manual does not show any information


Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Ok on this particular machine the belts strtch quite a bit and make the machine very hard to push even though the belts seem to be ok. I would recommend first making sure that the driving self propell is actually working at all. Tip the machine on its back all flat and turn it on. When you push handle up and down you should see a pair of wheels spinning one way then the other (corresponding to the way handle is pushed or pulled). As long as the wheels are moving then it is just that the wide flat belt just needs changing even though it is not broken. If the wheels are not turning at all even though belts are in place then you have a more sinister problem that will require a technition to check over.
hope this helps!
happy Vacuuming :)

Washing machine won't agitate.


Depending on type of washer, typical top load Maytag, motor turns in opposite direction for wash and spin. Your problem will no doubt be the transmission.

Pav2200 model


Sounds like a transmission problem. It's locked in agitation mode. When it is in agitation mode you can't turn the drum or move the agitator. I'd check that out.
