My washer recently has not been spinning all of the water out of the clothes. I took some of the clothes out and put it in for a second spin and the drum would not move. I had to have only 2 towels in there for it to spin and the water was still not coming out. I have cleaned it out with a rag. There doesn't seem to be any water laying in the bottom of the washer; it just won't come out of the clothes. These were not big loads either. Thanks
I have a kenmore 70 series washer model 10020722990
it will fill with water but will not wash. if you put it on spin the water will drain but it will not spin. it sounds like the motor turning. is it a clutch that has broken.
If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch.

Re: Kenmore 70 Series Washer
Ressa, there could be a couple of things going on here but let's start with the nuetral drain. After agitating the washer should enter a nuetral drain period of about 90 seconds before spinning. Your water in the tub should be gone. You can observe this by taking a small screw driver and holding down the lid switch during a regular load. If it's not going into this nuetral drain your clothes are going to be wet. This is a gearcase problem which is covered under warranty for 5 years, part only. Other things to consider is a restricted drain hose or clogged pump. Catriver..post back.

most likely you have a sock or, some cloth obstructing the pump. you will have to bail out the water then: remove the Sears 700 series 4screws holding the washer's control panel and, remove the washer side clips under the panel to remove the washer's sides then remove the 8 pump screws to remove the pump face and, remove the obstruction. the exploded drawings can be found at: http://beta.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action
I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.
First thing is to remove the 2 screws from the console, they may be hidden in the front or bacl of console. After removing screws, lightly push the base of the console towards the front of the washer and pick up. This will expose your lid switch connection. Using a jumper wire, jump out the black and white wires then try advancing your washer into spin/drain. The culprit will usually be the lid switch assy.
look at the bottom of the control panel on the end caps and back out the two screws then pull the control panel slightlyforward and tilt it back then you should see gray wires either going in the body of the washer or to a switch on the left side un plug the harness and put a jumper wire across the connector going to the control panel then try spin
