If there's no error code present try this. Unplug power cored from outlet. Open the back panel cover. Turn manually the wheel at the back of the drum. Do you a clicking noise? say every 2-3 revolutions... If yes, tighten the nut at the center of the wheel (turn clockwise to tighten the nut). Check again, hopefully this fixes your clicking noise.

Kenmore agitates doenst spin


You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.

Makes noise when spinning


Hi.

Have a look at the drum bearing, that is the most common cause for noise on the spin part of the cycle.

Kenmore washing machine not empyting all the way during the rinse cycle? the machine washes fine but not empyting all the water during the rinse cycle?


Does it go into high speed spin? If it does and there is still water than check to see if the filter or hoses are clogged. The hoses the run from your basket to the pump and the drain hose too. A washer is only given so much time to drain all the water. Most of the time the filter or coin trap hose is clogged. If everything is clear u may have a weak pump.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!
