Washer will not spin
Posted 13 September 2006 - 07:00 AM
My Kenmore washing machine will fill with water and drain, however, the machine will not spin/move during the wash cycle and it will not spin/move during the drain cycle. A couple of years ago, I encountered a problem similar to what I am experiencing today. I replaced the coupling and the washer started to work properly. I have taken the washer apart and noticed that the coupling does not appear to be damaged the way it was the last time. None of the teeth seem to be broken nor is the black rubber severely damaged (there was some rubber fragments/dust present). Is it possible that the problem exists with the lid switch, how can I make a positive diagnosis between the coupling and the lid switch?
Thanks in advance!

I replaced the cam dogs in the upper agitator and the lower/upper agitator is still not working. I took apart the motor and the direct drive coupler is in good condition, however, the agitator shaft does not spin when I rotate the coupler. Due to the fact that my washer assembly is completely broken down, what is the best course of action, taken in consideration everything that has been done thus far?
Coupler in good condition
Replaced cam dogs
Lid switch clicks and seems to be working
Water fills the tub and drains, timer appears to work properly
Wash cycle activates, however, the machine does not move
