Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sounds like a belt problem!
Or the linkage connecting the transmission to the agitator.
Or the WORST THE TRANSMISSION IS GOING!


If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!

Simpson washing machine


More info would be helpful (model? top loader/ front loader?)
If it fills then stops filling (ie. knows that it is full) yet does not turn, and no sounds etc, it is likely a motor control module or motor start capacitor or maybe PCB (If fully electronic). Does it spin if you manually turn the cycle to the spin point?

Kitchen aide front loader washing machine won't finish cycle


On ours, i think that those codes were overload codes.. i had to go downstairs and turn the circuit breaker right off for about 5mins - when i clicked it back on, the washer reset.. i took some of the extra wet towels out and ran another wash with no issues..

good luck

Machine does not complete washing cycles.


the lid switch must be working properly for it to spin.this is the area on most top loaders where theres a small hole and the actuator on the lid goes thru it and activates the lid switch .inspect this area for wear or damage

Water drains in wash cycle


It is probably a solenoid valve for the drain that is stuck open. There could be an object in it or may be defective.

Loud clicking noise at spin cycle


It sounds like you have a motor coupling that has gone bad. Most of the Kenmore top loaders that I'm familiar with are direct drive machines. Which means, they use a motor coupling between the electric drive motor and transmission to run. If you are in the habit of doing heavy loads like comforters, blankets and jeans this can put a heavy burden on the motor coupler and wear it out faster. The coupler is designed to take the burden of the punishment in order to protect the transmission and drive motor and it is common for them to wear out. The coupler is fairly easy to replace and usually runs about $15. It is located inside the machine between the drive motor and transmission under the wash tub. You would have to remove the outside machine casing, the water pump and drive motor to get to it, though. Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any repairs involving removal of the drive motor. If you are not mechanically inclined, you may want to seek the aid of a repairman. I hope this helps.
