Question about Kenmore 22622 Top Load Washer

Kenmore washer won't spin

My washing machine will fill, agitate, drain, rinse but doesn't spin. I followed your excellent advice on replacing the motor coupling but found it to be in good shape. My uneducated guess would be that it's the gearbox. The machine is making a thumping sound during the spin cycle but nothing is moving. Could it be the brake or drive tube? I don't want to spend too much hiring someone if I can replace the required parts myself. Thanks

That's a tough one, Billybob. It can either be a Gearcase problem, or a Basket Drive. Since the washer seems to be performing all other functions, I'm leaning towards your assessment of a Basket Drive. You can get the entire drive and brake assembly as one unit at searspartsidirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor and Pump" heading for item number 1 (part #285792). I would be prepared, however, that if that doesn't correct the problem, you may have a gearing problem with the gearcase (especially if your gearcase is leaking oil really bad). Usually when they go bad, the washer will usually exhibit symptoms of slow spins, assisted spins where you have to spin the tub by hand to get it started, or loud grinding noises. If you require instructions on how to replace the drive, let me know.

PS I would recommend you also purchase a new motor coupling if your doesn't have the steel grommet in the center (you'll thank me later if you do). That's item 13 under the same heading. Also, you will need a center post gasket (tub gasket) which listed as item number 16 (part #383727) under the "Agitator/Basket/Tub" heading, and a tub ring gasket which is item number 9 (part #3976308) under the same agitator heading. Replacing these seals will prevent potential leaks when you are done.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
