kenmore washer will not tumble or spin
« on: September 29, 2010, 09:05:03 PM »
Will only fill and drain.  Motor does not move at all or make any sound.  Timer sits on drain on final spin.

Model 417.44102300

Did you check the belt?

I am sorry, I forgot to say, I checked the belt and it is ok, the drum rolls freely and the belt is attached securely.  That was my first thought.

The owner of the washer stated before it was getting "stuck" on cycles.  Now it just fills and sits there.
