Kenmore Clothes Washer Won't Spin
« on: January 26, 2012, 08:31:00 PM »
My top loading washer (model 110.23032102) WILL fill, drain, and agitate, but it WON'T appropriately spin the clothes. Rather than being "stuck to the side" of the drum at the end of the cycle, the clothes lay at the bottom of the drum, are quite wet, and end up with softener spots (because the product is being dispensed directly on the clothes instead of being diluted in the rinse water first). Its a great machine otherwise. What should we do to fix this? Help!

Yep, replace the clutch. But I would go with this kit instead.

I would go with that kit too. I was unable to get the link for this cause the website was unavailable. O0

Awesome - thanks for the quick response! :)  Will post back how things turn out after I get the parts.

Does it try to Spin at all ?

This may be the part you need.
OR
Possibly a timer if you do not get the pause in the timer prior to spin.

I want to watch it move through the cycles to see what is actually happening, but, I can't find a way to defeat the safety on the lid.  It seems to be hidden inside the machine on this model.  How can I watch it enter and exit a spin cycle? ???

if it's a ball activated switch (back right of lid) I use a soft cloth with a flat head screw driver to engage the ball as I lift the lid.

What in this world are you speaking of?
There are NO ball activated switches on a top load Kenmore/Whirlpool washing machine.
