one more "kenmore washer not spinning" thread
« on: May 06, 2008, 10:41:45 PM »
Hello. just wanted to say what a great resource this forum. and also my washer isnt spinning. basically it agitates and empties but it really struggles to spin. without a load it seems to spin fine but once its fully loaded it refuses to spin on its own.  i help it along but it never reaches full speed. i took it apart and changed the coupler. the old one seemed fine. it was in good condition but i figured id change it anyways just in case. it didnt make a difference. i suspect that the clutch might be to blame because i can see the clutch spinning when the machine is on but the tub wont spin. anyways any advice or tips would be appreciated. thanks

model: kenmore 110.29812890

Sounds like "clutch time" from here :)

replacing the clutch is no big deal. Very easy job. You must first yank the agitator out, then the transmission. The clutch mounts right on the transmission.
