Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
It is not the lid switch, and i have looked up from below to see if there is a belt off or broke, but can not see anything obvious.
Okay, most recent model Kenmore top loaders have a DIRECT DRIVE transmission, which means it does not use a belt. If the model you have this listed under is correct, then the information below will shed some light on what may be wrong with your washer. Since the motor is turning as you stated, more than likely you have a motor coupling that has broken. The following link provides you with the steps necessary to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission). Some of the couplers that came from the manufacturer were made entirely out of plastic. Over a period of time, the center hole of the coupler (where it mounts to the motor shaft) would begin to wear and crack. Eventually, the coupler breaks. This is a common problem. A new improved coupler was manufactured to prevent frequent breakage and is more durable. At the bottom of the link is the part number you will need to order a new one. You can order on line at searspartsdirect.com, or go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part they should carry. The cost is about $15 or less.
I hope you find this information both helpful, and encouraging. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know.
