SOURCE: Kenmore top load washer spin problem

its possible you have a bad clutch assy, or perahps something stuck between the outer and ineer tub(i.e. sock) preventing free spin of unit, the clutch is mounted on top of the transmission assy and requires a little bit of work to acess, im sure you can find a video on you tube as to how to acess that

SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer will not spin

Although I had just cleaned the filter about 5 weeks ago, my wife had recently washed a pillow that came apart in the wash. I did not know this but noticed the clothes dripping wet after the high speed cycle. I was thinking it was the drain problem like I read in the post from bluefuzz. I pulled the filter and it was LOADED full. Before calling the repairman, CHECK YOUR FILTER! You won't need to disconnect any hoses.

SOURCE: washer is not spinning fast

Most washers have a speed limiter in them to prevent the unit from damaging itself "IF" it is severely out of balance. Your solution is to redistribute the load, so it will not be out of balance and/or wash smaller loads so the machine can redistribute the load itself.

Hope this helps..

Kindly,

Jim

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.

Kenmore spin cycle issues


Does it agitate and spin at the same time? the motor has a pump on one side and gear case on the other. if the gear case is seizing then the pump is lagging because the motor is loaded from a seizing gearcase and the gear case needs to be replaced.

Washer won't spin fast, only slow


tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent. HE detergent specifically designed for front loading washers

Kenmore front load washer will not spin


I had the problem where my Kenmore front load washer would not go into the fast spin. The repairman replaced the spin control unit and the motor with still no fast spin. He came this morning to replace the front control board and still nothing. He then decided to replace the door/lock unit and that is what did it. After about a month, now I am able to wash my clothes and not have to hang them up to drip dry enough for me to place them in the dryer. By the way, the manufacturer said that it was either the spin control unit or the front control board. I guess they will have to revise their fix for this problem.
