Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Replaced motor coupling now i smell rubber burning and a high pitch squeel that comes and goes i disasembled again and its coming from the water pump side of the motor i also have back and forth play in the shaft
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
First thing to check is to make sure that you have pressed the couplings on the motor and transmission shafts all the way on to the point where the metal ring on the new coupler is totally flush with the shaft. If you do not do this, you will get a binding condition.
Another is that some people really pound on those couplers to get them on, and this can damage the bearings in the motor. First do as I outlined and make sure the new couplers are on all the way, and is the noise does not go away remove the coupler altogether and re-install the motor and listen for the noise. if you ruined your motor, you will know. FYI that motor is not servicable; it will have to be replaced. The way I install those couplers is to use a deep socket that closeley matches up with the metal ring on the new coupler (you may have noticed the old one had no ring) and tap it LIGHTLY to get it to seat on the motor shaft and tranny shaft.
Hope this helps you..!
