Introdução

Here is a Kenmore 400 model 11029422801 with a clutch that was slipping. The washer went through all the programs but left the laundry soaking wet after the spin cycle. It sounded like it was spinning, but when we checked the drum while spinning, we noticed that it was not achieving full spinning speed. This was most evident on heavy loads.

Would this repair fix a 80 series Kenmore washer with same problem of no high-speed spinning

Larry Simonetta - Responder

Possibly but it depends on what is going on with it. This one spun just sluggish and not „forcefull“ enough. It pretty much stopped spinning with a full load because of the weak clutch
