Washer won't spin or agitate

Washer won't spin or agitate

I have a Kenmore Series 100 top load washer. It seems to be having and issue with not spinning or agitating. If I start a load it will fill up with water and then just sit there and do nothing. I can get it to drain the water but it doesn't spin when it drains and doesn't get all of the water out. I was able to put it into diagnostic mode and it gave me four error codes. The first is F7 E6- Motor Fault. Second is F7 E5- Shifter Actuator Fault. Third is F0 E2- Excessive Suds. Fourth error is F1 E1- Main Electronic Control Board. What should I try replacing first? Surely it can't be that the motor, actuator and control board all went bad at the same time?


"If your Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine refuses to spin or agitate during the wash cycle, see the Kenmore 110 Series Washing Machine Doesn’t Spin or Agitate problem page for possible causes and solutions.

We have too many error codes and need to get a clearer idea. Please unplug it for five minutes then plug it back in and tell us what codes you are getting. Do you have a history of any repairs on this machine?"

Well I went with my gut and replaced the lock latch mechanism. That fixed the issue. I guess since it was broken the washer wouldn't do the spin cycle since it was "thinking" the lid was open.

the clutch is burnt out...replace it..its easy to do yourself cost around $8-$12 for a new one on ebay
