  Yes, but the washer must operate in agitation cycle first before advancing to drain and then spin. It must agitate for at least a few seconds in order for the transmission neutral drain to be "set". Then it will go into drain without spinning. If you just spin the dial around checking spin in each cycle without allowing any agitation, it should spin as the transmission will not be in neutral.

thanks for the suggestion Eric, I will certainly check the spin cycle more carefully and observed what is occuring before and after the spin cycle. One question. What you stated with a timer that is working properly will this sequence occur the same way regardless of the spin cycle that the timer is on?

  Might be a faulty timer. After agitation stops, the washer goes into a 2 minute drain period without spinning. At the end of the 2 minutes, the motor stops and then starts again. This takes the transmission out of neutral so that it will start spinning while continuing to drain. If there is no motor pause after the 2 minute drain, the timer is faulty. If it does pause but still won't go into spin unless you turn the washer off and on again, it looks like a faulty neutral drain mechanism in the transmission.

  I agree. Since the agitator stops spinning, the basket drive has stopped but the tub keeps going so looks like it's slipping on the drive block. Remove agitator, agitator clip and plastic washer to inspect the top of the drive block.

Washer Repair / Kenmore 80 series washer intermittent spin problem
« Last post by fn31 on April 16, 2015, 08:35:44 AM »
Hello, I have an 80 series top loading Kenmore washer. Washer would do everything but spin. I took the machine apart and found that the clutch pads were worn. I replaced the entire clutch assembly. while I was at it I also replaced the motor coupler( coupler was good)  along with the lid switch. It worked fine for a couple of days. Then the spin problem resurfaced again. I inspected the basket drive block and that was fine. I did find that when I turned the timer around to the different spin cycles that it would make a "clack" type of  sound (the sound of I guess the brake disengaging) and it would start spining again. It will continue to work for maybe 3 or 4 loads of clothes then the problem resurfaces again. At this point Im  not sure what to do. Its driving my wife crazy and she wants to take a hammer to it lol. At this point i'm not sure what it could be. Any suggestions, advice would be greatly appreciated

Saw this direct drive Whirlpool washer today.  Runs fine, but when it stops spinning it makes a weird noise.  I have never heard it.  Its not the coupler, it spins just fine. it was in storage for about 6 months and this noise happened when the got it out of storage.


Any ideas?


Here is a video

I appreciate the suggestion, but can you explain why I might need this part when the machine was functioning well for 11 months?  It seems to me, that if there was a design flaw, I would have noticed it sooner.
Thanks!
