I have a Kenmore top loading washer, make/model 2125110. It's an automatic load sensing washer. The problem I'm having is with the spin cycle. The washer goes through the sensing, washing, and rinsing. When it comes to the spin cycle it seems like it is not completing it all the way. The clothes will still be very wet, but the washer is not filled with water.
I am using the HE detergent, not overfilling it and trying to even out the load. If I run a separate spin cycle alone it will get the remaining water out of the clothes and a lot of the time I don't have to rearrange the wet clothes. It only seems to not be spinning all the way on a normal cycle. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
How old is your machine? If it is a few years old, this is a common problem. If I were you, I'd just run a separate spin cycle, until it gives up the ghost entirely. Then I'd call a repair person. On my Kenmore, fixing the spin cycle was an easy and relatively inexpensive fix. I had it fixed about 4 years ago, and it is now 16 years old. (ps. It is not a belt. There are no belts in the machines now, that I could see when I watched the repairperson do his work.)
If the washer has a drain pump, check the pump trap. Sometimes that keeps the water from draining during spin cycles.
It's 5years old I run a separate spin cycle to get the water out of the clothes. It's a pain because it takes longer.
Is there a timer that could have possibly been thrown off?
Did you ever find out what is causing this? My mother's washing machine is an older one but is doing the same thing. If you run the spin cycle a second time it's fine but would love to know what you found out. Thanks Kellie
My Kenmore 70 series spins, but does not get all the water out. I took the pump out to make sure it was clean and it works great! Maybe it doesn't spin fast enough? Can you help?
You can check Kenmore online for customer service, request an evaluation by a repair service, etc.
My washer was doing that. The round object in the washer that pulses to get the clothes clean was not working properly. It finally stopped working altogether. When I pulled my clothes out of the washer that came out too. It was easily fixed by my husband but you have to order the parts from the company to do so. There was a round plastic washer about the size of a canning jar ring that had broken. If you can lift it out you can see but mine didn't come out until it was completely broken into. That is how I know what the problem is. Good Luck
