Need a special tool to remove the jam nut that screws on the block. Try local appl parts store or look on-line. Very hard to do with a standard tool. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

There seems to be a sock or something stuck in the washer machine, Kenmore series 80, Model 110 26832690. It started leaking so we turned it off. How do we remove a sock from the washer? Can we remove...

First, see the Sears parts diagrams / breakdowns for your washer:

Next, see the following illustrated description of how to tear down the washer and remove the agitator(s) and tub.

And see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for these machines.$FILE/L-55.pdf

It's unlikely that a sock made it thru the inner basket but, I'd check the hoses to and from the pump and the inside of the pump to check for any blockage before pulling the agitator(s) and basket.

NOTE: If you have to remove the inner tub, you'll have to remove the drive block.

You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench ($20) to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (about $9.00 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

When replacing the drive block, basket, make sure that the tabs align on the block.

I have a Kenmore 20722990 washer. There's a smell

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.20722990

Thoughts are:

1. Fabric Softener dispenser. I'd remove it, run a couple of loads with just soap and see if the smell disappears.

2. These models use whats called a Motor Coupler between the motor and transmission. The center part of the coupler is a rubber device that could be worn and you smell the rubber "burning"

A way to check it is to remove the cabinet, pump and motor and see if the coupler is wearing.

Following is a description of how to access the coupler.

3. Depending on the age of the washer, over time "gunk" can build up around the agitator shaft and in the tub. That could be causing the smell.

In order to clean it, you'll have to remove the agitator(s) and the basket. It's not a really difficult job.

See the following for how to pull the agitators, spanner nut, drive block and basket. You don't need a special spanner wrench. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it. Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal). Put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up with a hammer.

With the agitators, and basket removed, I'd thoroughly clean the tub and any other gunk that you see.

At the end of each spin cycle, the washer makes a very loud sound like thunder that is audible throughout the whole house. What could this be?

That sounds like a bad drive block. I think the part # is 389140. Double check that though. It's a cheap part, and not that hard to replace. However, you will need a Whirlpool spanner wrench. I won't go into each detail of breakdown unless you want me too, just let me know with a re-post. But basically, once the cabinet is removed, pop off the tub ring, remove the agitator, remove the spanner nut with aforementioned spanner wrench, and slide basket up off the gearcase shaft. The drive block may stay on the gearcase, or it may stick in the basket center. The drive block slides onto the gearcase shaft, (only goes on one way, due to slots) the basket slides onto the drive block, and the spanner nut is then tightened onto the drive block. The rumbling noise occurs when the block is worn in such a way that when stopping, the block (and basket) slides up and off the metal tabs on the gearcase. If that sounds too involved, call Sears...they have a pricing thing right now where the labor is a max of $129. So with the part it would only be about 150. Otherwise, just take it slow. Hope that helps!

Kenmore washer model 110.23812100. basket not spinning during spin cycle.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23812100

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for these washers.$FILE/L-55.pdf

If you can hear the motor and the washer drains during the spin cycle the Motor Coupler and Lid Switch (the usual problems with these washers) are not the problem.

These washers use a clutch which allows the "basket tube" to spin up to speed during the spin cycle.

If the clutch bands or springs are worn or damaged, the transmission cannot transmit power to the basket tube for spining.

See the following on how to remove the cabinet,agitators, basket, pump, transmission and basket tube. (It's not as difficult as it sounds.)

Instead of using a special spanner wrench on the spanner nut, I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked onto one of the tabs on the nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen the nut. I also put a short piece of wood under the Basket Drive Block and hit the wood instead of the drive block directly.

Check the clutch bands and springs and the tabs on top of the basket tube and the slots in the basket drive block.

Water is leaking from bottom of washer. Product is a Kenmore, Model #110.26752500. Have also noticed that basket inside washer moves quite a bit.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.26752500


See the Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It's possible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

If the basket moves quite a bit more than it should I'd also check the Basket Drive Block to make sure that the "spin tube" is correctly inserted into toe slots on the block and that the "Spanner Nut" is not loose.

I's also check the springs and suspension pads on the Machine Base .

Kenmore series 110 model 80

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.

Two things to check are the Basket Drive Block and the Brake and Drive Tube.

The clutch on the transmission drives the Brake and Drive Tube when in spin mode, the Basket Drive Block transmits the spinning of the Drive tube to the tub.

See the following description of how to pull the cabinet, agitators, drive block and drive tube.

As an aside, you don't need to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the Drive Block Basket Lock Nut. I found that by using a short 10" pipe wrench, opened all the way and hooked over one of the tabs on the nut, and giving it a short whack with a hammer, the nut will come loose.

Check that the basket drive block fits on the drive tube with the two tabs on the drive tube fitted into the slots in the drive block.

Inner basket scrapes on bottom of liner tub during spinn cycle

It sounds like the basket drive block is worn. If it looks like the basket drive block has slid down the brake & drive tube (I believe you're calling it the spindle), it's definitely worn out. When this part is in place it sits on top of the brake & drive tube and won't allow the basket to go lower. To replace this, remove the cabinet to gain access to the the inner basket which you will have to remove. On the top of the brake & drive tube you will see 2 small tabs. Align these with the cutouts on the basket drive block. Mount the drum back on top, and tighten the spanner nut. Reassemble the cabinet and you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!

Oil leaked out of the washer transmission

This may be a bit above your skills but first unplug the machine. You will need to purchase a special tool to do this job. It is called a spanner wrench, and it removes the drive block nut securing the inner basket. Remove the agitator, by removing the cap, and loosening the bolt on the inside. Loosen (using the tool), the nut securing the drive block to the basket drive. Locate and remove the 2 screws that secure the console to the cabinet. Tilt the console backwards, and remove the 2 gold clips, and disconnect the lid switch connector. Tilt the entire cabinet forward, and off of the base. Remove the inner tub, and remove the basket drive block. Remove the clips securing the pump to the motor, but do not remove the hoses. Remove the motor clips, motor and unplug the motor wiring plug, and take the wiring clip out of the transmission. Gently, tilt the entire machine to a 45 degree angle, so that you can access the underside of the machine. Remove the 3 bolts that secure the transmission (1/2 inch). Carefully, pull the transmission out of the machine. You must remove the transmission and open the top of it and fill it with 85 or 90 weight gear oil. I suggest that you replace the clutch at the same time. The clutch is the round thing sitting no top of the transmission. The basket drive is the thing sticking out of center of the machine, with the plastic tab hanging down. Pull the basket drive out of the tube. Inspect the basket drive hub, to make sure that there is no oil on the hub. If so, make sure you clean it very well. Be as quick as possible, because oil will start leaking out of the shaft bearings since the machine is tilted, and you cannot stop it. Make sure that you use the proper spring for the brake and clutch, and then the re-assembly is the reverse of what you have done.

You may want to call a repair man!
