I'm asking because I want to a least try and recoup some of the loss on my craigslist buy.  I don't have the tie to investigate, but I can at least take out the motor.  It's a kenmore 80, so just popping clips and hex nuts and bingo, I have a motor.  Just waned to make sure hat what I sell works because I'm not a scammer!  :thanks:

the problem is that it does not sping and drain all the waer so at the end of a cycle your left with soaked clothes hat have detergent on them.

If a washer finishes it's cycle?           What is wrong with the washer, what is it doing or not doing?

As I said above, it does not completely drain, the clothes still have detergent left on them.  It also makes a loud whining high pitch noise during the spin cycle(maybe the whole time)?

Although I'm reasonably handy, I work outside all day and would rather just try and cut my losses as it seems this one might be a hassle.

Could be a bad drive coupling.
Bad clutch.
Also sounds as if something is stuck in the pump.

How much do you want for the washer? Where are you located?
I used to repair RADAR then they discontinued vacuum tubes. Pity
