I have as a 13 year old Kenmore clothes washer model 110. I believe it was made my Whirlpool. The issue is that it was overloaded and seemed to freeze up. I opened the top of the machine to see that it was full of water but not moving and there was a slight burning smell.

I drained the machine through its normal cycle and then tried to run it again but now it will fill with water but will not aggitate nor pump out the water.

I am assuming that I have a motor issue in that it won't move and there is a slight hum, but am confussed as to why it won't drain now when it did at first.

Any suggestions on repairs or replacement would be much appreciated.

Thanks

** Kenmore clothes washer model 110. **

That is only the very first part of a model number. We need the whole thing in order to identify the particular appliance in question.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** there was a slight burning smell. **

Could you tell from where exactly?

** now it will fill with water but will not agitate nor pump out the water. I am assuming that I have a motor issue **

That may be a good possibility... depending on the design of wherever model washer you have.
