SOURCE: Kenmore 90 Series Washer Noise--Won't spin

For Tegres
If the noise is only when there is water flowing, check tighten the screws that mount the water fill solenoid valves to the case. The solenoids operate on line current so they vibrate at 60/50Hz (local suppply frequency) if they are loose at all, the noise is loud the body acts as resonators

For SRONEAL, that symptom describes coupling failure exactly, have you removed the coupling to check, often times the motor side hub is stripped, but there is no visible external damage

I had the same problem and it went on few months. Then the final spin didn't work and I could smell something buring. Called AHS and they sent a tech, who said it was the bearing. Cost about $350. to fix. Will be replacing the washer soon, I don't think we paid too much more than this at the scratch and dent place.

Make sure all springs are still in their place tilt the machine back and look under it and you can see them. 2nd all legs must be level as well as the floor.

SOURCE: noise/not draining on spin cycle

I had that problem and it was the drain pump trying to drain but it coulsn't because it had lint, plastic, 3 underwires a looney some costume jewellery stuck in the pump. By the pump underneath you'll see a black plastic boot leading away from the pump. disconnect this and inside you'll find the lint trap and if you dig you'll probably find the culprit that stopping your pump from moving. Put it all back together and Voila!

My blind son overloaded the washer and it will not spin after I removed the clothes. The washer makes a noise like the motor is working but not connecting. how do I fix it?

The washer may have a broken drive coupling. This is a plastic coupling with a rubber insert mounted between the motor and transmission. If the coupling breaks, the motor will operate and make noise but the basket will not turn. You must access the motor to make this repair. The part is inexpensive but labor more costly. I've seen this many times while I was working on Kenmore washers. It is a lot better than broken transmission, and worthwhile repair. Overloading and wear and tear over time will cause these to fail.

In the spin cycle at high rpm's the drum is making a load noise. Is it he drum belt? If so how can I replace it? I can't find a cutsheet on the parts list.

Hi there
Before you startreplacing partsin the machine, observe weather the washing is evenly distributed in the drum when it is working.
If the washing is not evenly distributed, there is a lot of noise and the drum does not go its rounds evenly.
good luck

I have a heavy doty 70 series top load washer. The drum and agitator do not move and the motor is making alot of noise. What is most likely wrong

Older style Kenmore washers had a belt. This washer probably don't have no belt that drives the tub. It has a coupler to transfer the energy from the motor to the tranny. If yall washed a rug or comforter lately then I suspect the drive coupler might be broken:
Replacing the coupler is fairly easy. You need a set of screwdrivers and some pliers to repair this puppy. Flip up the controls so the case can be removed on these washers. You never work from behind on this washer. Once the case is off you yank the pump and motor off and remove what is left of the old drive coupling from the tranny and the motor. Don't jam the coupler on the motor or tranny too tight or you will have problems.

Kenmore front load washer

My Kenmore front-load washer starts to make the huge noise. The noise happens during the wash cycle, but is mild. During the spin cycle, the noise becomes really loud. It looks like the drum is getting loose and hitting other part of the machine.
I checked the drum, and I can sway the drum easily with my hand. So it looks some supporting structure is broken. I don't know if it is easy to open the washer to check what has been broken.
