Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Not a problem but more of what is it?

I was fixing some minor problems when I had the machine on its' back side a pin fell out. I wasn't sure where it came from; looked but to no avail. I put everything back togther and the spin cycle didn't work so back apart thinking the pin was the problem but I remembered a connector that I left loose. While I had the machine on its' back I was using a very bright light and found a small plastic bottle with a pin in it. Upon further investgation found another bottle but no pin. Perfect fit of the original pin that I found. Leading to my puzzling question, WHAT IS FUNCTION OF THESE TO PILL BOTTLES AND PINS?

The pins are shipping pins, heldin by cotter pins to prevent the tub from shifting in delivery, when the unit is set up initially, the shipping cord releases all the pins ans instead of having htem hit the floor they fall into conviently located plastic cups. they have no function past that you can discard them

It seems a minor problem for me, but cannot say anything without checking your washing machine. You should better call washing machine repairer to fix this minor problem.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer. While moving it into the house, it made a loud sound and a small copper pin fell out of the bottom. Does anyone know how to put this back in place?


That pin is a pin used to move the washer (secure the drum) and is not used when in normal operation. There are 4 total that should be removed. They are stored in little cups on the legs, and likely fell out of the cup.

The pin fell out of a catch cup used for transporting the washer when new. It is not important unless you put it some place it does not belong.

If you laid the washer down to do the repair you probably got the base plate out of alignment. Open the lid,reach inside and grab the wash tub. Pick it up as much as you can and shift it around. It will usually reseat the plate.
Also block the front of the washer with your foot and raise the rear of the washer off the floor. The self leveling legs should drop down. Let the back of the washer loose and it will settle in on the leveling legs.

This washer should be left in the upright position to change the drive coupling.

A pin fell out of the bottom of the washer


The pin is just an alignment pin used during assembly at the factory. You need not worry about it. However the water leaking is a separate issue. The leak could be the pump leaking. But I suspect since that pin was knocked out of it's plastic holder during your move, the suspension traveled enough to damage the hose going from the bottom of the tub to the pump. Come of those hoses were a harder (read cheaper) corrugated plastic instead of rubber. It's an easy fix and I replace those plastic hoses with a rubber one.

Washing machine not spinning


The pin is a shipping pin and serves no purpose after the machine is set up. These machines comes with a plastic strap through the back panel to hold components in place for shipping. There are plastic cups that the pins fall into after the strap is pulled.
Ignore the pin.
Your no spin problem is a stripped out direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.
It is a easy fix.
Use the attached video as reference to change out the part.

The pins are supposed to fall out thats why there are plastic catch cups. Its designed for shipping with the pins put back your washer will not work properly and may damage it if continue to use it with the pins.
