SOURCE: My washer does not wash the clothes or go through the spin cycle.

It sound like a belt problem. Try to move tub manually first, in case it move smoothly -open the front panel, the belt should be between the motor and the drive pulley (lower front). In case it torn or not in its place, you should replace it. In case it doesn't move smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, it should be removed. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

There are three screws under the plate beneath the door. Remove these three screws and remove panel. Immediately you will see a removeable plug about 2 1/2" in diameter made of white plastic. This is where your problem lies (or at least one of them). CAUTION - before you remove this plug, put a bucket under it because water will come out. After you unscrew the plug completely, pull it out toward you. You will no doubt find many items that washed out of your cloths. I found legos and coins tangles up with strigs and lint. The entire area was completely plugged. The coins were probably the source af the stains we had on our cloths as they were all black from the water and soap.

The pump on mine burned out and I am trying to replace it. Then I will sell this junker.

I hope this helps some of you. Please advise.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 630.17303406) and it just stopped working. Doesn't drain what's left in the bottom and just makes a humming sound when turned on. Power is good, sounds like the...

If nothing obvious like blocked / obstructed outlet pipe
You need to check if the outlet pump motor in line with the outlet hose is spinning when in the outlet mode. First check if it is spinning by looking at it and see if the small fan is spinning. If it is turnning this means that it has power and the internal "impeler" that pushes the water out has become loose. Remove the pump (easy job) and repair. If it does not spin you need to determine if the 2 push on terminals have power on. If there is voltage and the motor does nut spin this indicates that the pump motor is open circuit and must be replaced.

I have a older model heavy duty kenmore washer after it filled up with water it just stopped on its own no nosy no smell I pulled on the nob to restart it but no luck I then unplugged the unit

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Without knowing the model number etc. I can only offer a couple of suggestions.

1. Try to set the knob to another position such as spin and re-start.

If it starts to spin and / or drain, the problem could be with the timer not advancing.

2. Is it possible that the washer isn't getting power? Check the house fuse box / circuit breaker to be sure, or plug a lamp into the outlet.

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngMost of the other Whirlpool / Kenmore troubleshooting answers for the motor not running point to the motor or its' connections itself.

Fan not spinning

clean your fan motor. remove carefully part by part(your fan motor, the coil and the rod). remove all the dirt. put machine oil at the rod, front and the back part. try to spin it. oil it and spin, do it again and again until the rod spin smoothly. and then put back those part as before you 'open' the fan. but remember, do not do this while your fan plug is still plugged to the power source. or you will be dead instantly. for your safety, you know. so be careful. last step, try it! :) i hope this will help you in fixing the fan.

HOTPOINT WMA46 filter reconnect problem

Regardless of the filter not being back in properly, this would not stop the m/c spinning. Remove the filter, and check it again for blockage. Push the hose on as far as it will go, or it will leak
Try spin again
Make sure you have not disturbed any wires to the motor, if still no spin, then remove motor and check carbons in motor.
Plz rate this solution.
