Hi, The washer's having a problem at the end of the spin cycle. The brake is not applying much pressure so the basket slows down very slowly and makes a banging sound. The frequency of the sound slows as the basket rotation slows. The noise is louder with larger, or out of balance loads. Opening the lid does not make the basket stop any faster. Appreciate the help!

Washer won't spin. Kenmore 80 series model # 11023812100 Washer won't spin for either rinse cycle or spin cycle. If you hear it enter either the rinse or spin cycle the motor strains and it will not spin until you turn the power off and then back on with either the lid switch or timer switch. I inspected the coupler, replaced the transmission, replaced the clutch (includes brake cam) and most recently removed the lid switch and replaced with a jumper for troubleshooting. With the lid switch removed I have been able to observe several cycles (same symptoms in Ultra clean or Permanent press modes). When it is in a spin cycle (and not spinning) if you turn off the power you see the tub move just a bit as if the brake was released. Is the brake engagement completely mechanical? Is the brake possible sticking? When I replaced the transmission there was a good bit of oil splattered around and coffee ground looking particles on the top side of the transmission. What should I trouble shoot next? Brake, timer switch, motor or other electrical component??? Please help?

Spins once in a while. I have replaced clutch and I have bypassed lid switch. I noticed brake shoes are greasy. When it spins it spins great. Thanks Joe

I have replaced the motor , coupler and the clutch assembly , and as the washer does final spin it doesnt complete the spin out 100 %. As the clothes are not spun tight to the tub wall. I rotate the dial to spin and it then spins out as it should. You had replied that it might be the brake shoes and not the timer swich. Anything to do with the agitator dogs ? Please give me your thoughts.

We experienced a sudden failure -- at the rest period of a wash cycle there was a very loud ongoing staccato bang while the basket continued to spin at high speed. I was able to stop the basket by hand. It turns freely and restarting a spin cycle works fine, and I can again stop the basket by hand (same loud noise). The strange symptom is the accompanying up and down motion of the basket. If I turn it slowly by hand, I can see that the bang is coming from the basket physically dropping at one point in the rotation, so it seems to be on a rise/fall, rise/fall pattern. I estimate the rise/fall to be maybe 1/8 inch or less. Seems like more than just a brake shoe problem?

I have a Kenmore series 80 washer that I have just changed the drive clutch on. While the washer now spins again I still seem to have a problem. Whenever the washer comes out of a spin cycle it sounds like someone is hitting it with a hammer. The noise stops when the drum stops. New brake shoes maybe?

Some times the unit will not spin. Not all the time but some times. I moved the basket until it won't turn anymore and it begins to spin. It seems that it isn't a "Hard Part" broken because most of the time it works well. One would think that if it was a "Hard Part" broken, it would always be broken.
