SOURCE: Hello, information request (birth date)

The manufacture date is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. The serial number should be located along with the model number on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid. Kenmore washers are manufactured by Whirlpool. The serial number format is explained in the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap

The second digit in the serial number will represent the YEAR in was manufactured. The first two NUMBERS following that second digit represents the WEEK (52 weeks in a year) that it was manufactured.

If you locate the serial number and still need assistance in how to detemine the age, post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Washer fills no agitation spin cycle ok


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. 

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. 

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

hi tecate.

This can be a few things, either bearing,transmission, drivebelt or motor.
Start with the drive belt. Take it off and see if the drum when rotated makes the same squeak as befor when you apply a little pressure to the drum.
If it does not do it it can be the tension in the belt. Or the belt is gone HERE are drawings and partslist. You can also obtain the parts here

Need to ask about Maytag 7600


You should reove the belt and check for roughness in the way the water pump bearings "feel". If they are tighter one way than the other you may have "string" or something wound inside the pump or bad bearings. also do thew same test on the motor it should spin free both directions also. And check the "thrust" the in and out play on both shafts. Lastly check the transmisssion mAIN DRIVE PULLY for true and streightness a warped or bent pulley could cause a noise problem but usually will do the same noise in either direction.

No spin cycle


Get the plug off the wall, open up behind & check what it is. Maybe the belt is off...........Only severe cyclones are catastrophic........
