Kenmore Elite won't spin...
« on: March 08, 2009, 02:17:14 PM »
Hello all.... "MAYDAY" My kenmore washer won't spin... Motor runs but it will spin slow or not at all. At times if I give the drum a push with my hand it will start to spin but slow.... can someone please help?

Remove the cabinet or tip the washer back and look under it for a oily gear case/transmission.

This pdf file should help you remove the cabinet if you don't know how.

The clutch sits on top of the gear case. If the clutch is oily it will slip and not spin the washer very good.

If the clutch is oily I would replace The Clutch.

This is driving me nuts...fyi I also checked the coupler but its good.
Question if not to much bother.... How does that clutch get oily & if so can I just take the clutch out & clean it up?

The oil maybe coming from the transmission.

If it is I would replace the transmission too.

How old is your washer?

The clutch sits on top of the transmission. Did you not have the washer apart and see it?
