Kenmore washing machine design question


N

nucleus

concerning the design of kenmore washing machine (1998 model),
i think i remember that the motor spins one direction during
agitate, then for the drain cycle, reverses the motor direction
to make the pump operate. and, if i remember correctly, the
spin occurs in the same motor direction as the drain cycle.
(please correct me if this is wrong.)

if above is true, what i do not understand, is: when the motor
reverses direction for the drain cycle, what triggers the basket
NOT TO SPIN during the drain cycle? it apparently is not motor
direction, if the drain and spin are in the same direction???

if you are talking about "wig-wags", no, kenmore quit using them
before 1998.

For washers with a reverse direction motor, the motor reverses direction during the drain cycle and a separate impeller pumps the water out. See the pic i attached
