Kenmore 70 Series Washer
Posted 20 June 2005 - 06:48 PM
I would really appreciate any help possible to repair my washer. It works great.....except...it doesn't spin. It fills...agitates....drains....and responds to which level and which water temp I choose. I've tested the lid switch and it was fine.(open/out..and continuity/in) I even jumped the wires to double check it. It has a new timer (the timer wasn't advancing so I replaced it). On the water level switch I jumped the violet wire(hot) to the pink wire to send an "empty tub" signal but still no spin........ When it hits the spin cycle...you can hear the pump but that's it. My question is......
If the washer agitates...isn't it safe to say the spin problem isn't motor, gearcase, or belt related? Also, what are the acceptable readouts on the spin solenoid?
Thanks for any help you can throw my way.......I'm getting arthritiis from wringing out my clothes.

but wouldn't drain and spin. Our trouble was the tranmission. It was leaking oil and I think it had to be replaced. We decided to look for a new one. This was a great washer it lasted us for about 19 years. I hope you can figure it out. Let us know what it was.
