    Thanks. What is the best sequence to dismantle the washer to get at the belt. This is a first for me and would appreciate any input on replacing the belt.

  • David Reis Oct 14, 2010

If you have a Whirlpool or Kenmore direct-drive washer with a weak or lazy spin which gets worse with a heavier load, it may have a bad clutch or transmission Chances are the clutch is just slipping the only concern is if the trans is leaking oil thats getting on the clutch causing is to slip. If you tilt the unit back you can look inside the cabinet if you see oil slung around the inside trans is leaking if not you just have a worn out clutch

Your machine is direct-drive therefore it doesn't use a belt. The motor is directly coupled to the transmission by means of a coupler not a belt. The problem is in the clutch assembly.The clutch band has a tab that pushes the brake cam driver to release the brakes and allow the basket to spin. If the clutch lining is worn or the clutch spring is weak, the friction between the clutch hub and the lining is not enough to drive a large load.

Hi,
The drum doesn't spin in large loads because the belt driving the drum may be lose.Due to which the belt slips off and the drum doesn't spins.Change the correct belt size and it will be fine
thank You

Top loader series 80 Kenmore doesn't stop after the whole wash cycle, it goes directly to 2nd rinse, then spins again and stops?


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 does everything else, the problem points to the timer.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and service manual for top load, direct drive washers with an extensive troubleshooting section.

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.
