Kenmore won't agitate, spin

4 posts in this topic

This 8-year-old Kenmore two-speed speed control washer will not agitate or, when I move the agitator, works extremely slow in all settings. It also does not spin in any cycle. I can hear the motor and drive operating and have had a look underneath. I assume this is a direct-drive type of setup since I can see no belts. Is this a clutch problem or is there something else going/gone bad?

Most likely problem is a broken or stripped drive coupling. I believe our host has a link to describe this repair job.

Hello, my two-speed friend.  Yes, indeed our most glorious and all-venerable host has an enlightening link on this very topic.  Would you like to see it?  I'm sorry, you'll need to speak up; my hearing has been dulled by gunfire while serving with the Mujahideen fighting the Soviet infidel.  Did you say you would like to see it?  Very well, it is here
