Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Sounds like an airplane taking off!

We have a Kenmore washing machine model number is a top load and as soon as it is done with the spin cycle and is going over to the rinse it shakes violently and sounds as if it is an airplane trying to take off! The clothes are level in it. It only does this at the very end of the spin cycles.
Any idea to what it is and how we can fix it ourselves?

My washer won't stop running.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

This sounds like a Timer problem. See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load / direct drive washers. It has a troubleshooting section and test procedures.$FILE/L-55.pdf

Check the lid switch. Listen for the clicking sound when you raise the lid. I have found them just loose or out of alignment on some. reply back if you need more help.
