Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
So..........my washer is not spinning. Water goes in....goes out yet the clothes never moved. Soap is in the same spot. I am smelling a slight burning and once I moved my washer and checked it out from below I am seeing a pile of black something ( maybe a belt ot grinding motor). The washer is fairly new. I am in unsure what to do. Any help will be welcomed. ( mother of 3 who has come home from camping and has NO washer !!!!! )
The problem you describe is a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and easy fix if you follow these insturctions:
The black stuff you mentioned is usually from the rubber bushing of the motor coupling. Some of the old couplers are made entirely of plastic which means they wear out faster. The newer couplers have a metal grommet that makes them more durable. Use the part number provided. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.
It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.
