When the transmission or clutch goes bad, it costs less to buy a new washing machine than to get the old one fixed. It's just possible that you could take it apart, lubricate it, and get it to spin properly. But if the machine is several years old, I'd recommend a shopping trip rather than springing for a service call.

I have a 9 yr. old Kenmore washer with oil underneath. Is it worth fixing, or should I replace it?


If you have oil under the unit dont fix it! At nine years old this is not worth it, if you have oil its the trans that is shot. Your looking at 300-500 for a repair. I would look at the new ge washers they have no trans, also fisher & paykel makes a great washer that has no trans

Washer spins slow or doesn't spin at all


Hello, If your machine is spinning slow, this can be an indication that your gearcase (transmission) may be going bad. One way to tell is to look under your machine. If you see any oil puddles on the floor, your gearcase needs replaced. A new gearcase runs about $200 and that doesn't include the labor charges (add about another $150). Good luck.

Thanks

Top loader does not spin fast enough to spin dry.


possibly the clutch is slipping, i've heard you can take a #10 washer and put it in one end of your clutch spring caps and that would tighten it up

Gearcase is leaking oil


What brand??? Whirlpool ,kenmores leak through the front shaft by coulpling. It will still run with low oil, it may get oil on clutch wich can make it slow spin.
Ge's old and new leak oil and can run for a long time with no oil. They will get loud and scize up after awile. Old maytags leak and keep on running. New ones drop dead.
Run yours till it dies, replace the trans with a new one or buy a new washer. There is no fix for any leaks, just replace transmission or washer.

Clothes still too wet after spin


Sounds like the trans has leaked oil onto the clutch. Lean machine back and look at inside of cabinet about 8 inches up. If you see oil spatter, then you need a transmition and clutch. It's usually cheaper to buy a new one.

Kenmore 23012 / Clothes still wet after spin cycle


Remove end caps from console (put fingers behind top and pull towards you. small flat head may be required). and the 2 phillips screws behind them. Pull console towards you and up, it wil flip out of the way. Unplug door switch connection on top rear right of cabinet (3 wires). Put flat head STRAIT DOWN into brass looking clips and push forward. They'll pop out. Lean cabinet towards you and shine flashlight inside. Look for oil splatter about 8" up from bottom. If there's oil, then the trans has leaked oil into the clutch and it's slipping. Repl. transmition and clutch assy. If you see oil, it's cheaper to buy new washer. Trans and labor is about 400

Kenmore top loading washing machine drains but does not spin


Sounds like the coupler broke. This connects the motor to the trans. The part is only like 25.00 and labor is about 140. When it tries to spin if the basket doesn't move at all, then this is it. If the basket is really slow or easily stopped with your hands then the clutch/trans. could be bad. More times than not, it's just the coupler. These are made to break under heavy load, so it doesn't hurt anything else. They are just rubber and plastic and sometimes break for no reason. Push the lid switch with a pen or something with the lid up and try to spin to see what happens.
