Question about Kenmore 88732 Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
I have a Kenmore Laundry Center Stackable washer/dryer unit model#417.99872990. I just replaced the motor for the wash unit. The water fills and drains but when it should agitate or spin the motor just hums and puts out the egg smell. I tested and the pump is getting power, the motor is getting power, there is continuity and power going thru the capacitor, when i spin the transmission pulley it turns, the lid switch is operational, and the belt is plenty tight. I am very handy but out of ideas. Help please!!!!!
Your problem could be with your transmission, which is located directly above the drive belt pulley under the wash tub. If they go bad, your motor will still function normally, but the wash tub will not spin or agitate. Now, another possible problem could be a nail or screw stuck in one of the wash basket holes pressing against the outer tub. I have personally seen this a couple of times. A dry wall screw or nail will stop the wash tub from spinning and cause the drive belt to smoke as the motor pulley turns, but the belt stays stationary. That could be the source of your smell. If you're a do-it-yourselfer or do a lot of carpentry work, you may have washed some clothes with a nail or screw in them. Inspect all the holes in the wash basket throughly. A nail or screw can easily be missed if your not looking for it. I hope this may help you.

Good Afternoon Sarah, thanks for your post!
From the information you have provided the washer on your Frigidaire laundry center will not agitate or spin and will drain. This sounds like a possible issue with your motor or belt. In order to pinpoint the issue with your washer you may need to disassemble the washer and test each component for electrical issues and cosmetic damage. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend you speak with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt
