Title: kenmore washer wont spin
Post by: futch13 on October 06, 2007, 06:53:24 PM
I have a kenmore 70 series direct drive washer that goes through the entire cycle in the correct way, drains but spins very weakly or does not spin at all. I have checked coupler and ok ,taken off aggitator and cheked drive block  and that is also ok. When it is going into spin cycle , I looked under washer with the cabinet off and noticed the top of the transmission spinning but nothing else spins . Any thoughts?

Hi fetch13,

It sounds like brake or clutch problem. Could you give me your model number?

Model number 110.26732502 .  If it helps, I can manually spin the drum without a problem

If you checked the the drive block and it looks ok, then it's most likely the clutch pads are worn out. You can replace the clutch part# 285785 (http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=store;sa=view;id=22) . It's not too hard of a repair. Let me know if you need help. Good luck

Thanks for the help. Clutch was bad and it was a pretty easy fix.
