Kenmore Laundry Center model # 417.02000 No Spin
Posted 10 February 2006 - 12:20 PM
The center agitator goes in the wash, but the barrel doesn't go for the spin. Could it just be a belt or something?
I know NOTHING about appliances whatsoever. My dad is coming tomorrow to have a look but I would like to have some information for him to go by because we need this washer to work! Please help, I have 2 small children who can't stay clean, and an small apartment filled with hanging wet clothes. Any advice whatsoever is greatly appreciated.....

With the front off, put it in spin and watch the belt and pulleys. If the drive motor is turning, but the belt isn't, remove the belt and see if it has burned areas and cracks. Just push in the idler pulley some to get some slack, and loop it off the gearcase pulley. Remember how it was on.
Also, try turning the gearcase pulley by hand and see if it turns free. If so, start with a new belt. Belt replacement is easy, don't even need a tool. Just have to weasel it around some, and push in the idler pulley to get some extra slack in the belt.

And, make sure everything is clean and dry before you put the new belt on. Don't get any grease on the belt , I don't even take it out of the wrapper until I'm ready to put it on. Wash and dry your hands before you put the new belt on to avoid fouling the new belt.

Start by replacing the belt.
