kenmore 80 series washer spin cycle

I have a Kenmore 80 series washer (model#23832100). When using the ultra clean wash settings (not sure if the problem persists in the other cycle options (will follow up if it does not happen in other cycles).

The cycle will run just fine all the way to the end when the spin cycle should engage. At that point the washer stops. The water has been drained, but not wrung out. If you move the selector dial around to the spin cycle again start the cycle at that point it works just fine.

Do you know the possible cause of this?

Thanks!

It does agitate. No funny noises that I am able to detect (will update if I notice anything unusual, that I did not notice before, next time I use it. The timer does stop at the spin cycle. Give 100.23832100 a try for a model number. The problem is on all cycle options.

Thank you for your help!

Possible lid switch
To check lid switch. Find slot in top under lid. Put hand under switch and lift up. Use a pen or small screwdriver and push down on lever with washer in spin. turn on and if washer spins you need a lid switch.

Just realized that I was wrong it the last post. The timer goes straight though the spin cycle. I know that probably changes everything.

No odd noises observed though.

Check the lid switch most common reason for your problem

Hi, I'm new here but what a great site. I'm having sorta the same issues as the OP in this thread. The washer will not spin or empty water. If I set it for a spin cycle after the initial one it'll pump the water out but the clothes are soaking wet. I do have the oil sprayed 6" up underneath so I'm assuming I need the gearcase top seal, clutch, and drive coupler.

I am looking here for parts:
Gearcase replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL LXR7144EQ1 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Can someone please confirm the part numbers I need to fix this. I'd also appreciate a tutorial if there is one.

Many thanks!

Many sites for tutorial, just Google whirlpool gearcase repair also there are many places for parts but here are the numbers from site you have. seal ap2908074 clutch ap 3094538 drive coupler ap 3963893, even if drive coupler looks good replace it, Common problem with washer. Clutch can be cleaned with brake cleaner but better to replace., The part # will be different if you go to a Whrilpool site.

Pugsl, thank you so much! I got everything ordered. I assume I only need the clutch lining like you gave me the part number for and not the entire clutch assembly?

I ordered everything you mentioned. Again, thank you!

Pugsl, Ok I have it apart, but the seal I bought looks way wrong. The one around the shaft looks to be the one thats leaking and it's only the diameter of the shaft which is a lot smaller than the one I have. I think you had given me the outer seal, but the inner seal looks to be the problem. Also do I remove the top silver cover to replace the seal? I didn't want to loose any oil. Please help! If I need another part, I need to get it ordered ASAP.
Is this what I need?

EDIT: I had to get these ordered, so I hope one of these is right. I bought these:
AP3873737
AP3132857

Thanks

here is a site for disassemble gearcase and another site to buy parts. Look in your local yellow pages for appliance parts, May have what you need in stock.

Pugsl, did you see my thread edit? I ordered those two seals I listed from appliance pros. Is one of them the proper one?

I can't ell from pictures you will have to dissemble and look. I personally don't rebuild gearcases that's why I have given you the web sites to see how it's done.

In your responses in other threads regarding the oil sprayed around the inner case you mention
needing a gear case seal. Now I'm asking which seal it is I need and you don't know? The number you
gave me before seems to be the outer seal around the shaft where as I need the inner one. The picture shows exactly what I need. The seal inside the coller on the shaft is what I'm after.

Ok, I put everything back together and the washer worked for a few days, now the same thing again. It'll work with a small load, but if my wife does a larger load the clutch is obviously slipping as the clothes are soaking wet when the cycle is done. I bought three seals to try and replace the gear case one that was leaking but none of them were correct. I had to put it back together with the existing seals and I'm guessing it's throwing gear oil unto the new clutch again. So frustrating.

Whrilpool gearcases have been the same you many years. Don't know why you are having problems, Do you have a local appliance repair store there May have the right seal in stock or can get you the right one.

Yeah I'm not sure either. The parts place went off their parts diagram and it was still wrong.
