Kenmore 90 plus series spin dry is not working

I have a Kenmore 90 plus series washer that is not spin drying the cloths. I hear the motor going i think. The water is draining out, but not getting the excess water out of the cloths before they go to the dryer.

The wash cycles are working.

There is a part between the moter and something else and i can turn it by hand when I lay it over on its side.

    inner cage won't spin during spin cycle. I took the back of the washer apart and the motor is running but makes a horrible sound. i don't know if it is a berring or what, but the gear directly connected to the cage doesn't spin. I know that particular gear isn't locked up because I can spin in manually

    I have a similiar problem on my series 90 washer by kenmore - agitator is working fine but the water does not drain at all and it will not spin dry at all. The coupler appears to be intact ( although the alternate pins on the motor side are somewhat loose with some play to them.) What would you suspect to be the most likely solution to this problem?

    Same problem, washer agitates and pumps out the water, but the spin cycle doesn't work. Motor is running but drum doesn't spin. Lid switch works fine. Can torn drum by hand with a little force.

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.

Kenmore 90 series


you can look at the water pump inlet and outlet hoses. sometimes socks and other small items would be sucked in and blocked the water from going out.

another theory would be the clutch on the spin cycle is slipping that is why the drum is not spinning as fast as it should.

tnx 4 using fixya,
