Tip the machine back and inspect the bottom of the gearcase for oil. If oil is present, the oil has migrated to the clutch causing it to slip during spin. The gearcase and clutch may have to be replaced.

Kenmore washing machine catalyst stops during rinse cycle


The hum you here is the probably the motor trying to turn, but it is about burned out. If it moves a little with a full load and more with no load, it is probably bad. If you hear a hum and the drum never moves at all you probably have a broken belt.

Water drains during spin cycle, but tub does not spin and appears to have dropped down. Machine does aggitate.


If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.

The pressure switch is mis-reporting the water level to the ECU.

Test/replace the pressure switch.

Kenmore Elite Washer top load Wont spin


Sounds to me like the belt is broken or has slipped off. Try taking the back off (6-8 screws) and you will immediately see if that is the problem.

Kenmore top load washer spin problem


its possible you have a bad clutch assy, or perahps something stuck between the outer and ineer tub(i.e. sock) preventing free spin of unit, the clutch is mounted on top of the transmission assy and requires a little bit of work to acess, im sure you can find a video on you tube as to how to acess that

If your washer fills, agitates, drains, but will not spin, the likely cause is the gear case (transmission). A new gear case can run about $200 just for the part. With labor, this could be a bit expensive to repair. I hope this helps you some.
