Kenmore Model 110.2234 top loading wash machine About a year old It is so loud on spin cycle we cant hear each other talk in the other room with laundry door shut What is the problem?

Possible bearing failure but if only a year old, it should be under warranty. Check around the spin bowl for any foreign objects sticking through the tub. Perhaps a bra wire or nail , screw etc or something has come out and stuck in the tub.

Balancing problems with the spin cycle

Redistribute clothes in the tub. It may take several tries. If this doesn't resolve try it with just water and no clothes load. Still doesnt resolve, there may be an issue at the upper bearing load carrying or bearing adjustment surface. A slim possibility there is something under the spinner tub, but that would interfere with the tub reaching spinout speed.

Agitator getting clothes wrapped underneath bottom not releasing

Could be a Major issue! Unless the agitator will unhook from inside the tub. See if the Very Top of the agitator unscrews. If it does then the agitator should come up. The motor is directly connected to or part of the agitator shaft.

I have a GE washing machine model # WCSR2090DAWW and today I went to put a load of clothes washing. It filled the tub up with water like normal and then went into soak mode. The problem starts when it...

Possible that some item of clothing is jamming up the drive to the tub. The burning smell are the motor windings reacting to the excess of electricity flowing thru them before they burn out.

Ken more wot stop filling but think i got it want to make sure

A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Washer leaves trash on clothes when finished. has been doing this for some time now. some of the particles resemble dried tree leaves.

It sounds as if there is a soap buildup in possibly a couple of places and it is coming loose then ending up on your clothing. If you changed brands of soap this can happen also. The soap buildup can be under and inside the agitator. It can manifest itself in large calcium type flakes in the washer when it finally breaks down and you see it. You can remove the agitator by opeing the top of your agitator and removing the retaining biolt then lifting out the agitator. Use a putty knife and scrape off the inside of the wash tub under the agitator. Also take the agitator either outside or to the bathtub depending on weather and scrub it clean on the bottom and on the inside of the agitator. If after all of this you still have that same material show up you may have to remove the wash tub itself and clean the outer tub with a putty knife. There is a special tool that locks into the 4 slots of the tub nut used to remove the tub nut. You can buy it at most appliance part centers. Tell them you need a tub nut removal tool for a kenmore / whirlpool top loading machine and they will walk back and get you one straight away. Good luck andI I hope this resolves your problem.
