Fixing the Kenmore Washer Machine

The Kenmore Washer at my rental home fails at spinning step. It seems that either the belt or transmission part. From the google search, there have been failures posted for this common problem. My friend was lucky and all he needed to do is to replace those plastic parts on the top of the spinning shaft. But, it can be as complicated as to fix the clutch complex, etc.

Mine has the follow information:

	
  • Model number: 110.27872600
  • Series number: CU3140210
  • To diagnose, turn to spin and push the button, one can hear the motor running but no spinning occurs. Here are some very good help videos from those DIY funs.
