SOURCE: Washer spins but not enough to extract water from clothes or tub.

I have a MAH5500AWH and experienced the same problem twice. Both times the R11 resistor on the control board was burnt up. The board is behind the cycle selector dial. To check, remove the outside screws holding the metal backplate for the user control console. Do not remove the inside screws as these hold components to the backplate. My advice is to replace the whole board. You can buy a new one (expensive) or try and get a used one from a repliance repair/parts center.

SOURCE: Washer spins but not enough to extract water from clothes or tub.

could be a loss belt or a kinked hose, since you say it feels weak i would think it is not getting up to speed which would be a loss belt or drive train issue, of course it could just be to big a load or on slow spin speed setting

Check if the belt is good and tight enough. If that washer uses a spring tensioner on the belt, make sure it travels freely and applies sufficient tension.

I have a kenmore 80 series and its not spinning out the water.


does it drain out the water and spin but the clothes are still wet or is it not draining or spinning?set the timer to spin,open the lid and stick a screw driver into the lid switch hole and see if it spins and drains,also if it doesn't push down and let the switch up,or close the lid down and open it a little do this a few times,you should hear the switch make a clicking sound,if it doesn't click you have a bad lid switch.if the machine is draining and spinning but the clothes are wet,do the same thing with the lid switch and watch it spin with the lid open,is it spinning fast,if not you have a bad transmission and it's not spinning fast enough to remove the water out of the clothes or you could have a kink in the drain hose or something in the pump and it's not draining all the way.let me know what you find and send the model number off of the washer,the number should start with like 110.

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.
