Washing machine spins slow in spinning cycle, leaving closes too wet. All the other cycles work good.
What could be a problem?
Answer Hello Virgil. You need to check the drive block 389140 to see if it is stripped out and the clutch 285785 to see if it is loose and worn first on the unit. If both of these check good, then you will need to replace the transmission 3360629 in the unit.
My washer does not agitate or spin. It makes a loud noise like loud spinning/slash grinding noise.
Answer Hello Paul,
This can be a brake 285792, clutch 285785, or gearcase 3360629 issue. This will have to be disassembled to find the source of the noise.
When starting the rinse cycle my washer will hum and not spin. (I peak in with out tripping the lid switch) Once i move the agitator around a bit, and close the lid it will sound and spin normally. I just replaced the clutch, dogs and drive coupling.
Answer Cole, It's not likely a mechanical issue, at this point, and with the work you've performed. Since the washer fills and agitates, it's not likely a fault in the motor or lid switch. The humming and then the washer operating after the lid is raised and closed again, indicates an issue in the timer W10199989. there is probably a weak contact that isn't resetting, when the timer advances and attempts to start the spin cycle, the motor hums, when you raise and lower the lid, you interrupt the power to the timer, the contact releases, and the motor runs and spins.
Washer will agitate but wont spin.
Answer Hello Tim. You need to check the lid switch and see if it is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit.
Hello! My washer will fill/spin/drain but will not agitate. When the issue first occurred there was a strong burning smell. When it gets to the point of the cycle where it should agitate it just hums/buzzes. I have replaced the motor and the rubber coupler that goes between the transmission and motor. I am thinking this must be an issue with either the transmission or the clutch. Is there a sure fire way to tell which one is causing this? Thanks in advance!
Answer Ben, It's not likely the clutch or the transmission, or the motor. The washer fills, drains, and spins. Your most likely issue is a faulty contact in the timer, in the agitate cycle there are several contacts that have to close and complete the circuit, so the motor will run in the agitate direction. If a contact has failed or is faulty, the motor wont run, and it will make a humming or buzzing noise and produce an odor, from the motor windings overheating.
My Kenmore washer won't spin or agitate I have changed the agitator am and the direct drive coupling it spins slightly then stops ant suggestions?
With the unit not spinning or agitating you will want to check the lid switch to make sure that it is good. In most cases this is the most common reason for no agitation or spin.
