kenmore 90 series washer wont spin
« on: December 26, 2008, 08:51:26 PM »

My wife told me my Kenmore washer only spins partially on the rinse cycle (clothes are still wet and have suds) and that she can only put a couple items of clothing in at a time on the spin cycle so that it will spin or has to hand spin it to start it spinning.So i decided to replace the motor coupler.After replacing it i checked it with the lid open and it seemed to work fine(although there was only a couple items in there),but she says it is still doing the same thing.I'm wondering what is the next possible solution?is it possible that the lid switch is bad?

Yep and check the hinge. Loose hinge will do it.

After you try that, you will still need a new clutch if I read your description properly.
Here's what to do..Clutch Replacement
