Question about Kenmore 2.1 cu. ft. Portable Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Portable Washer will not agititate

My Kenmore (model 84671100) fills and does not proceed to the agitating.
It also makes a high pitch sound after the filling. If I do not turn the machine off the high pitch stops and returns. It sounds like it is attempting to do something but can not proceed. Any ideas on what can be causing this problem? How should it be repaired?

Thank you

Washer will not spin.

Check the lid switch. Many models will not drain if the lid switch is bad. Hope this helps!

Agitator moving just a little.

If it is a Whirlpool or Kenmore make washer you probably stripped the "dog ears" in the agitator. They give you the duel agitation that makes your clothes cycle from top to bottom of the machine. Should only rin you around $8.00 or so. Hope that helps.

Kenmore Super Capacity Washing Machine

If your washer is the one you have chosen a Whirlpool built kenmore unit than your washer doesnt have any bearing that fail, It could be the spin tube mounting block becoming stripped ( most common) or a clutch or brakes not releasing issue (not likely). Also make sure the machine is agitating it may just be filling with water and draining and making motor noises. In this case the motor coupling has broken. both the block and coupling are inexpensive parts and easy to install.
