James, thank you for your efforts at finding an answer to my washer problem. My shorting of the lid switch temporarily indicates it's not the culprit. With the lid switch shorted, it would not spin.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the motor is not humming when you place the washer in spin, it likely has a timer issue or loose or broken wire. A faulty lid switch would not prevent this washer from draining, a faulty lid switch would prevent it from spinning.

If the motor is humming and not starting; disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the rear panel and grasp the belt and see if you rotate the belt, motor pulley and drain pump pulley. If the drain pump seizes, the motor may not start.

Your model does not show to have an off balance kick out switch and the washer does not have any fuses.

I added an image below of the motor circuit and how to check the motor. NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurements unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose the failure.

If it's a timer failure; the timer is no longer available. I recommend replacing this old washer rather than putting any money into it.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

To Joey S., thanks so much for your input. I logged an update yesterday, saying that I had done some more diagnostic work, and found that the motor DOES AGITATE, and the pump drains, but the washer won't SPIN, with or without the lid switch,i.e., with the lid switch shorted. (I disconnected the 2 lid switch wires AT the lid switch, taped the 2 metal connectors together with electrical tape, stuffed them in the little protective plastic case, closed the top, and ran the machine 2 full wash cycles. It wouldn't spin,but did everything else. Restored wires to original connections after that.) Washer timer is fairly new,2-or 3 years old. Another contributor,Lyle W., said it could be the transmission, the clutch, or a basket drive. What 's your opinion on these 3 as possible causes ? Is there a brake anywhere that could keep the tub from spinning ? Where is the basket drive ? As you say,it's not worth putting serious money into, but I don't give up easily if a cheaper fix is feasible. A loose or broken wire "smells" probable, based of the timing of the failure. Natural problems do not have impeccable timing; they typically occur at random.

Mike: There is a wig-wag assembly mounted on a shaft on top of the transmission with two magnetic solenoids. Once the water level drops enough when draining, the spin solenoid should receive 120 volts which should cause the cam bar to slide and release the brake and engage the basket drive at which time it should begin to spin. The solenoid with the red and white wire connected is the spin solenoid. The red wire has been known to break inside the insulation preventing the spin solenoid from energizing and from spinning. The solenoid itself could be faulty or the rivet (pin) at the top of the plunger could also be broken or the plunger could be bent preventing the plunger from shifting the slide bar. I hope this is helpful. Let me know what you find.

Joey, thanks very much for your knowledge. This Kenmore 11082441100 is pretty old. I could not find a clutch assembly anywhere, and am dubious about finding a solenoid, a pin, a basket drive, or a plunger. A wire is a different story; I can find that. So, it appears that the machine can be fixed if and only if the cause is a broken wire. I have no idea what the probability is that it's the wire.

Q:

what is a wigwag?

A:

The wig-wag is mounted atop the washing machine's transmission, where it oscillates back and forth like a railroad signaling wig-wag (hence the name). When either solenoid is engaged, a rod catches and engages the transmission in the desired mode.

One of the wig-wag's solenoids is turned on to engage agitation during wash mode; the other solenoid is turned on to engage the spin-dry mode. The motor must be turned on before the solenoids are powered. Only one solenoid may be operated at a time. When neither solenoid is engaged, the transmission is in neutral and only the pump is operating to drain water out of the tub.

During a normal cycle, most Whirlpool-built wig-wag equipped washers will fill, start the motor, then engage the wash solenoid. Upon completion of the wash mode, the wash (agitate) solenoid will be turned off, which will allow the pump to drain the tub. After a minute or two, the timer will then engage the spin wig-wag which will cause the rotation of the tub. This is in contrast to most other top-load washing machines which start spinning and draining simultaneously. There are no pauses between cycles in these machines.

Thanks very much, biker Dave. Here's the situation: this Kenmore 11082441100 is pretty old, so much so that parts are not available for it,e.g., a clutch assembly. It is a belt drive machine. While the cause of NO-SPIN could be a broken wire to the solenoid, I am too short of time to find the fix. There are inexpensive used units for sale by private parties that are newer and functioning well. So, it's come down to choosing between spending more $ on a used machine or spending the time, perhaps fruitlessly, trying to fix the Kenmore problem. If the solution is other than replacing a wire, well, you know the rest...

There does always seem to be more than one issue when a washer malfunctions. I do see the previous question. The expert will review both to respond within two days, if not sooner.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your washer. Based on your symptom and details it sounds like it may have a broken brake release actuator on the basket drive or it could have broken clutch spring or worn clutch. When the washer is in the spin cycle you should see the clutch drum spinning. When the clutch drum is spinning, the end of the clutch spring inside the clutch drum must strike the brake release actuator in order to release the brake. Releasing the brake will cause the basket drive to begin turning the basket.

I added a YouTube video showing how to access and replace the clutch . Once you have the gear case removed, look up at the basket drive which was above the clutch and see if you can release the brake and spin the basket drive. If you are able to release the brake and spin the basket drive then it likely needs a new clutch.
