Washing machine shakes badly during spin cycle. I
If you have moved it recently there were some Kenmore washers that had pins on the tub underneath that fit into sort of cups. I leaned mine over and didn't get them back into place and it shook like a earthquake . There are some machines with bumpers underneath that keep the tub from moving too far to the sides. See if you can move the tub by hand side to side on all four directions to check movement. Go online and check your model for recalls, consumer complaints, world of wealth on the net.
Bought a Model A412 from
Maybe lid switch is bad. I think that model has a fuse in the switch assembly if I remember correctly.
Won't stop filling up. Water
Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow
1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking
2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement
Good luck, i hope this helps.
I have a kenmore 80
Good for you. I don't think this model has a belt, I believe it is a direct drive with a coupler. Most likely, if you can hear the motor, the coupler has done it's job and sheared. The coupler is 20 bucks and my wife and I just changed ours out. I need the entire model number and I will get you the part schematic and we will get you going.
Kenmore Series 80 washer NO High Speed Spin
It could be a timer, motor or wiring problem. You would need to check for 110 volts at the timer or motor when in the higher spin mode. If you are getting 110v you have a bad motor. No or low volts you have a bad timer. The motor is either a 2 or 3 speed motor and you would have to determine which winding to check for the 110v. The schematic is usually glued to the inside rear cabinet. Please rate this post.
