My washer spins on the rinse cycle but I do not think it is spinning fast enough to remove all the water from the clothes. The last few loads of lanudry are coming out to wet. The last load after it completed I could smell a burnt smell. I do not see a drive belt on this model. So would this be the "Basket Drive and Brake Assembly AP3094539"?
Answer Rick, First check the drain hose for kinks or sharp bends, then check and make sure theres nothing stuck between the top of the basket, and the tub cover. You may want to fill the washer on the highest water level, then let the washer drain and start to spin. The tub should be completely drained in 90 seconds or less. If all checks are OK, then the odor and the degree of wetness of the clothes would indicate a "slipping" clutch 285785.
The washer doesn't spin in rinse cycle. Coupler is good, drive block is also good. Washer makes loud screeching and grinding noise when in rinse & spin cycle. Please help! Thanks, Sam.
Answer Sam, Does the washer drain, you may have something stuck inside or the bearings have seized on the pump 3363394. You'll need to remove the transmission, and check the drive tube, brake pads and rollers, 285792 and clutch assembly 285785 the rollers could be stuck and the spin tube is locked, causing the clutch to slip, overheat and make noise, and not drive the tub.
OK - we seem to be going in circles here. I wasn't asking about the lid switch. I know that works fine. I was asking if there's a way to bypass the water level switch so that I can test the motor.
I also have been asking (and haven't gotten an answer yet), HOW does the motor transfer through to the basket in Spin Cycle? I keep asking questions and I keep getting answers that basically say to replace every part I ask about. That is NOT good diagnostic procedure ... and is quite expensive.
IF the motor works, AND if the transmission works as designed, AND if the clutch and coupler are all in perfect shape ... WHAT NEXT!? HOW do I identify what part has FAILED to keep the machine from spinning the drum in spin cycle, when ALL ELSE WORKS!!??
Answer Hello Dan-D-Lion. The problem is, you own a Kenmore and they do not release their wiring diagrams. Therefore, we can not advise you how to test the switch and the motor by giving you the wire colors. You will need to use the wiring diagram on the unit to do what you are wanting to do on testing the unit. This is the reason you were answered to test those parts you were asking about and if bad, replace those parts. Sorry we could not provide wiring colors, but your manufacturer prevents us from being able to provide that information to you. If you can not figure out how to test the parts on the unit, using the tech sheet that is on the unit, you may need a technician to test the parts. Sorry we could not help you more on this, but with the wiring diagram we could. Thank you.
