Try pulling out the center of the drum, this is usually where you put the fabric softener. Inside are little "elbow" type parts, they have teeth on them and they need to be replaced every few years as the teeth wear down the clothes won't get shimmy around in the drum.

Drum won turn


Wow, check around the bellows, gray rubber seal in front between the stainless basket, remove any item. Didn't find anything now unplug unit remove top and lower machine covers. Run the flashlight along the outer tub while looking inside the stainless basket, locate any items that may jam rotation of the inner basket and remove.

My washing no start and display view f34 Thanks


The F34 code normally only occurs when you are trying to run the CLEAN WASHER cycle. The washer should be completely empty of laundry when you are attempting to start this cycle. If the washer is empty and you are trying to run this clean washer cycle then you could have a friction problem with the spin basket that is causing the F34 code. Try turning the spin basket by hand with the washer empty and dry. The basket should turn relatively easily. If the basket will not spin easily you could have a problem with the bearing in the back of the outer tub or you could have an item stuck between the spin basket and the tub inside the washer.

When I hand turn the drum I still hear water behind the drum please help


You most likely are not hearing water remaining in the tub. You are hearing the water slosh around in the balance ring that is attached to the spin basket. There is a balance ring attached to the spin basket that is half filled with water. When the basket is turned by hand you will hear the water in the balance ring. This is normal.

Drum not turning properly


Sounds serious! If the drum is floppy, it probably means bearings on rear shaft.Or there may be something caught between the tank and the wash basket.Check for wire or similar caught in holes in was basket. Try turning the was basket slowly by hand to see if the banging happens at the same place......Nomess

Error code f50


The F50 error code is a stalled motor error. There is a part called a "Rotor Position Sensor" that sees the motor running. This error will display if it does not see motor movement during a cycle.This is a repair I recommend a technician do but there is one thing you can check.
You want to make sure that the spin basket turn freely. turn the basket by hand and it should turn freely. If it does not turn freely then it could cause the F50 error.
If the basket turns freely then the problem is most likely the main control or the Rotor Position Sensor has failed.
I recommend having a technician check this problem.

My Kenmore Model 11027086604 washer will not drain and spin. The display blinks back and forth between F and 51. The instruction manual does not address this problem. What can I do?


does the basket spin freely?
could be something stuck between the basket
i can help you to take apart if you need instructions.
This would only if it is hard to turn by hand and you can hear something rubbing when you turn the basket.
F51 can be your rps sensor,board but more than likly "knock on wood" you have something stuck between the baskets very easy to check.
let me know

F51 & F72 Codes


The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems. Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation. With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub. You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

Basket Re-engagement Failure.

F then 72 flashes when the basket check routine fails to determine if the basket is re-engaged after being disengaged.
Is the basket floating? If yes, pump out water. See Long Drain.
Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.

Won't Spin Without Assistance


It sounds to me like either there is an excessively heavy load in the washer and the unit simply isn't strong enough to get it going, or more likely the clutch mechanism/gearbox is malfunctioning. They use a clutch mechanism to allow the motor to run at a constant speed while the basket can start rotating slowly and pick up speed with time. If this clutch mechanism or gearbox isn't performing properly, the basket won't spin. It's not your motor or safety circuit since the basket will turn if given a little push.
