Hi,

 

I have a Kenmore 110.20932991 Elite washer. The clothes are still wet after the spin cycle completes.

What I have done so far.

1. Removed the washer cover, and checked between the two tubs for a lost sock or some other item.

2. Checked all water drain lines for blockage.

3. Removed water pump from motor and checked for blockage. Was able to spin pump by hand.

The washer agitates strong so that rules out the motor coupler, and the pump / water flow is strong when draining. I also have verified that the tub is spinning I can see the tub spinning if I open the door just a bit before the cover switch shuts it down.


If I put a small load of laundry in the washer, (like 2 towels) the washer works!  However under a normal load (and I also verified that the clothes were balanced properly) the clothes are still wet after the cycle.

 

Any advice as to what to look at next would be appreciated.

Thank You,

Joe

During pumpout, lift the drain hose so you can observe the discharge stream, should be the same diameter as the drain hose and full n' strong.

Is this is an unusual drain hose configuration, e.g., discharge is above the washer?

The unit is pumping well, and is installed in a standard configuration. The washer has worked well for the last 6 years.

I am now looking to replace the Basket Drive & Clutch.
