First, see the Sears Parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22712100

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Initial thoughts are a worn/broken motor coupler.

See the following for how to get to it and check it.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=135&osCsid=6019c5e82bfa177df953f5d6ebeac983

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

It's possible that the prongs have broken and the humming that you hear is the pieces rubbing against the center rubber piece.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

SOURCE: loud jet noise in spin cycle on Kenmore stackable top load washer

it is the drum bearing seal and it has gone out and ruined the bearings,you would need a lip seal kit and appropriate bearings for that particular unit,i do a lot of maytag front loads and it can take anywhere from 2 hours up to 8 hours depending how the old bearings come out and the damage to the bearing and seal surfaces,the sooner you get to it the less chance of severe damage it will cause,because water will kep on destroying bearings till they lock up and destroy the drive pulley

Venting. When elements or thermostats burn out it is almost always caused by venting restrictions. Vent is plugged with lint, smashed(usually from the dryer being pushed back to far) vent run is too long, or nylon stocking on vent outlet. Also check to see if you can pour water through your lint screen. Sometimes fabric softener builds up on the screen and restricts the air flow. Scrub your lint screen to get this build up off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Dryer is displaying AF


i got this from the other site.


The code AF indicates that the control senses a restricted air flow. To clear the code, press STOP once and the estimated time remaining countdown will return to the display. The AF code will continue to appear with each cycle until the low airflow condition is resolved.
Try the following troubleshooting to resolve the air flow problem:
  • Clean the lint screen.
  • Check at the outside of the home to make sure that the vent exhaust hood is not blocked.
  • Check the flexible vent connection behind your dryer. Make sure that it is not kinked or clogged.
  • You can disconnect the flexible vent and start a cycle with the dryer venting directly into your laundry room. If the AF code does not appear, this will verify an exhaust vent duct problem. Otherwise you may have a component failure.
  • Have your home dryer venting run cleaned professionally.

hope i was able to fix your problem,

tnx 4 using fixya,
