Kenmore 70 Series Washer No Spin
« on: August 03, 2009, 03:29:55 PM »
I have a Kenmore 70 Series washer it is about 8 years old it just started to not spin the water drains out of the tube but it will not spin.  I am trying to figure out if it is worth having the machine repaired or to just buy a new one.  Can someone tell me the low and high end of fixing this.

Although you will get in trouble for not starting a new post, you can replace the direct drive coupling to correct your problem.

Hi Hilory,

What is the model number of your washer?
You can find the model number on the model/serial number tag that is on the washer.

This video will show you how to replace the motor coupling.
