Kenmore 70 Series will agitate, wil not spin/drain
Posted 20 June 2005 - 03:50 PM
The machine will fill/wash/agitate OK but will not drain or spin.
I have both bypassed and replaced the lid switch to no avail (I already had the new switch, so I just put it in anyway).
Is this the pump? Something else?

Thanks again all. Really appreciate it.
Anyone have any ideas why that pump locks up?

Yes, you will be doing this same procedure again very shortly. Get yourself a new pump and install it.
That old pumps seals are going which has caused the shaft bushing to freeze up. Lots of times on these belt drive machines you can get the pump to unlock by giving the belt a good hard tug and it will break the pump loose so you can pump the water out and not have to bail it out.
But, once one of these pumps lockup once you can be assured that in short order it will do so again. You may get another month, day or year no telling.
