Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Sears 90 Series Washing Machined throws ground fault during spin.

I have a Sears 90 series WM that "sometimes" throws my ground fault during spin cycles. Sometimes it doesn't happen for a couple of weeks then it will happen during every spin cycle. I have torn the machine down and am going to replace the transmission coupling because it looked like it needed it but I can't find the cause of the tripping of the ground fault. It makes sense that water is leaking somewhere and getting on electrical but I can't see any water damage or corrosion. Please help.

Pvatki, I am a licensed electrician and the NEC (national electrical code) does not require a clothes washer to be on a ground fault circuit interrupter. Replacing your gfci with a standard duplex receptacle will fix the problem you are having.

Throw it in the trash. There are too many consumer complaints about the sears 700 washers and dryers. Quit shopping at sears. Kmart owns them, so now it's bad to worse.

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.

Squeaking/grinding/rattle noise during wash and spin


That sounds like a clutch problem - probably just worn and need replacement. Will definitely need to pull to find exact fault.
