Yes.

Check for a kinked or blocked drain hose.

UNPLUG THE WASHER from the wall

Remove the front screws near the floor and pull off the front cover. In there you will see the water pump and belt. Check belt to see if it's stretched or worn.

Disconnect the water hoses from the pump and check the hoses, pump and tub screen (if equipped - follow the hose from pump to tub to find it) for a sock stuck in there.

Look inside the pump for the impeller vanes and rotate pump by hand. The pump should turn easily and the vanes should not be chewed up.

Maytag pumps and belts are plentiful, cheap (relatively) and easy to replace.

    Almost forgot. If your drain hose goes deep into the laundry sink or pipe and/or you have a slow sink drain, the washer will siphon water from the sink BACK into the washer when the pump stops.

    Best to keep the end of the drain hose near the top of the sink.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine will fill up with water, then nothing happens


Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care Heavy Duty 80 Series washing machine (Model # 110.92389200; Serial # CF 1122814) went through the wash cycle completely, but rinse not the rinse cycle. Motor was going but washer not spinning. Also smelled something like burnt rubber. Could the belt have gone out? Is this something that I can fix myself?

Washer will spin but won't drain automatically


are you sure it spins? usually something is in the pump like a sock. You could remove the front and take the hose off the pump to see if its clear. It also sounds like it could be the lid switch. if you have to close it make sure you hear a clicking noise from the lid switch.

Washes fine, drains, will not spin


Well, it sounds like the lid interlock switch is bad. This switch keeps the machine from spinning when the lid is raised. When the switch is bad the washer thinks the lid is up.

Yes, if you have reasonable skills & experience you can fix it yourself.

Look for a hole in the rim under the lid. The switch is under that hole.

How can i fix my washer myself?


The washer will not ever completely drain according to Maytag. A certain amount of water stays in the outter tub for balancing the machine for final hyper-spin. However if the machine is not spinning all of the water out and your clothes come out sopping wet....read the long thread I typed out to another person earlier.....it's about 2-3 questions up on the same topic

Washing Machine not draining


I have just fixed the same problem. At the front - bottom right is the filter - you may have to remove the kick board on your fitted kitchen to see this - put a small dish under to capture water - unscrew half a turn - drain off all the water - then fully unsrew and pull out - I had money and treads from jeans blocking the filter - clean out, replace filter and fully tighten. My machine worked after this. - Steve
