Sears 110.23812100 washer leaks when spinning

I have a problem with my Sears washing machine; when set to the highest load level it will start to spin when completely full and spin water out of the machine during the "drain" parts of the wash and rinse cycle. Usually washers pump the basked down or reasonably dry first before they start to spin, but this starts immediately. I'm wondering if the pump/transmission ist misbehaving or there's a problem in the sensor level or timing circuit.

When the water level is less than the uppermost setting this isn't a problem simply because the water level is lower, and sometimes the basket will pump out first though this seems to be a random occurrence. Any thoughts??

There is a pause after the pump out that shift the tranmission into spin also if you open the lid the unit will go into spin before it pumps out completely . They have since fixed this issue...The newer models work offf the pressure switch to tell the unit when to go into spin only after the water level switch is open telling the machine there is no water left in the unit

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

I have a HotPoint washing machine, and it is leaking water bad. It leaks whenever the spin cycle starts, and the washing machine shakes pretty bad in that cycle. It's my ex girlfriends washing


The leaking could be coming from the exit port on the washing machine. Check the hoses leading from the washer to the drainage port in the wall. As for the shaking, check that the level adjustments at the bottom of the machine are level.

WATER LEAKING FROM TOP WHEN START SPINNING,MY WASHER IS MAV 7600AWW,I CHANGED THE SEAL AND STIL LEAKING


Does this happen on any water level setting, or just on full load? If the machine is overfilling, the centrifugal force at the start of the spin cycle will throw the water up the sides high enough to overflow the top of the tub.

If the machine is overfilling just a little as I suggest, then the water level switch may be out of calibration or the water level hose may be partially clogged at the tub end. A quick fix in the latter case would be to disconnect the hose from the level switch and blow compressed air through it - it's a lot easier to get into the control panel than the side of the tub. A leaky hose would have a similar effect.

Water leaking from under machine, doesnt do it all the time, but when it does leak it makes a skreatching noise too


This sounds like the transmission making the noise you are talking about. If this is only happening on the highest water level setting and when you have a big load, the tub may be adijating and spinning at the same time causing the water to slosh over the top of the tub.

There's not much I could reccomend that you do if this is the case other than lower the water level setting and load size and/or replace the machine. Don't waste your money investing in a new transmission - buy a new machine instead.

Washing machine won't always spin on its own


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/index.action

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

Since it will spin on lighter loads, the problem points to the clutch.

When the washer goes into spin mode, the motor is reversed to spin the pump and a clutch on top of the transmission engages to spin the tub.

Following is a description of how to access the clutch and check the clutch bands.

Sears and Whirlpool have a replacement parts kit for the clutch.

If the bands look OK, the problem could be in the neutral drain inside the transmission.

Whirpool LSQ9200LQ Top Load water leaking on start of pump out


Transmission may be bad. When machinbe goes into very start of spin it should drain the water first and then machine will actually spin; tub should not be spinning. If it is, water cyclones up sides and will come out at tub cover. Only fix is to repl trans or select lower water level if I am correct in the diagnosis.

Washed clothes while on the 'clean washer' setting


I'm sure that the exact make up of clean washer or tub clean cycles vary from brand to brand, but basically that cycle fills to a higher water level, hottest water, and highest spin, turning off load sensors / out of balance sensors so the machine can spin with water in the tub (allowing tub cleaning agents to contact all tub surfaces). (all other cycles pump the water out before spinning) Having a load of clothes in the machine at this time could result in overloading machine (gererally causing an error code), damage to suspension components, damage to hoses or connections resulting in water leaks, etc. Due to the large water level, your clothes would be agitated more ****, but the hot water might damage some fabrics. A FixYa rating would be appreciated for this info. Thanks.
