Kenmore Washer won't spin
« on: May 13, 2010, 04:04:26 PM »

Kenmore Washer will agitate fine but will not spin or pump. I checked the lid switch, the coupler and the pump is free of junk. In the spin cycle the motor makes a humming sound and starts a burning smell. Im thinking the trans is locked but not sure if it's the motor or the clutch too.
Thanks for any help I will give as much info as needed. Take Care

Broken basket drive or cam driver. Remove the agitator and drop the tranny. Inspect the cam driver. Click picture to enlarge:
