Question about Kenmore 22622 Top Load Washer
Okay...after working on these model washer numerous times, it is NOT uncommon for a gearcase to fail. At least, it wasn't in my area of the country. It's also not as big of a job, nor an expensive one. A new gearcase runs about $163 at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number and locate item number 9 under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading. The part number is 3360629. If you decide to replace this on your own, the following link explains how to replace the gearcase step-by-step:
You would be amazed at how easy it is to perform this repair. I've personally done many of them. I don't know where the DIY estimate came from, but this repair should not cost you $300. I would recommend, however, that if you replace the gearcase, to replace the motor coupling as well. I hope you find this information encouraging. Let me know what you decide.
