You need to check this parts.
Inspect the drain hose for kinks
Test the timer control
Test the lid switch(some models)
Inspect the water pump
Inspect the driver belt(belt drive only)
Inspect the motor coupler

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012It spins, but doesn't pump\015\012\015\012If\015\012your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is\015\012probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of\015\012clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds\015\012the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into\015\012the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump\015\012itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump\015\012and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub\015\012port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter\015\012rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub.\015\012Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing\015\012through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck\015\012clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the\015\012outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and\015\012you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified\015\012appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line\015\012isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump\015\012appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you\015\012need to replace the pump.

\015\012\015\012\015\012It doesn't spin or pump\015\012\015\012If\015\012your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running,\015\012your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to\015\012replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer\015\012and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if\015\012it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

\015\012\015\012\015\012It pumps, but the water returns\015\012\015\012If\015\012the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine\015\012after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a\015\012laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual\015\012remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is\015\012something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

  • \015\012
  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
Hope it will help you.

Hi, I have a Kenmore 15879 that is basically working except the bottom water spinner...lol (don't know technical name). The dishwasher pumps the water into the bottom of the dishwasher, will heat the water, but not disperse the water in the spinning sprinkler manner it's suposed to. I've opened the dishwasher in time to see that water is spurting out of the holes about 2" high, but it's just not spinning. The water also drains just fine after the whole cycle.

This is caused by the impeller being clogged or the pump is failing, When the pump is woring properly the water will shoot out with force. ... Kenmore 15879 Built-in Dishwasher
