Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Won't spin I have a kenmore 80 series top load wash machine. It no longer wants to spin. I was told it went off balance and when lid was closed again it made a humming noise, twice, and decided to go on strike. I'm somewhat handy but have no clue about appliances. What should I look for?

The main motor bearings have seized up. The cure is a replacement motor or a new machine. Unless you can do it yourself it will be cheaper to buy a new machine as a new motor costs around $250.

Hello Dbriner,
It would appear that the lid switch is defective and is in need of replacement. I included a video showing basically how to replace it (It is a series 80 machine but that is minor).The steps are the same.

Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin


Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.
