I have a Kenmore 417.43142200 washer that spins, but spins at a lower speed then usual. I took off the back cover today to have a look inside and noticed that one of the stabilizers is not attached. Could this effect the spin cycle? I know the motor works because it does still spin just not as fast as it used to, my clothes are still wet when it finishes. I need to re-attach the stabilizer but I cannot figure out how to get the screw/pin out that is holding it in. Any help on either point is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

**I have a Kenmore 417.43142200**

A front load washer.

**noticed that one of the stabilizers is not attached. Could this effect the spin cycle?**

One of the shocks is broken? If yes, won't help the spin!

** I cannot figure out how to get the screw/pin out that is holding it in**

The plactic pin should have a small tab on the rounded end that must be pushed in and held in so the pin can be taped out.

There is a kit that replaced both shocks with a newer style and has instructions...

Shock absorber kit, 2 per package.

I have a series 90 Kenmore washer that just stopped spinning and agitating. The model number is 110.28912790-- serial ch3453446. I have been reading about "brushes in the motor", etc, but someone suggested I might need a new transmission. (It is 8 years old.) Advice?

** series 90 Kenmore washer model number 110.28912790 **

That is not a front-load washer like the OP was asking about. Yours is a plain Whirlpool built (see the following link) 'direct dive' *top load* washer.

** I have been reading about "brushes in the motor" **

There are not unusually any "brushes" in conventional (ie 'top-loading') washer motors.

** just stopped spinning and agitating. **

Will it still drain?

If it WILL still drain but just not agitate or spin, on Whirlpool built direct drive washers that is most often caused by a broken motor coupler (see the following link).
