Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Series 80 washer 11027802690. I've replaced the pump (3363394), coupler (285753A), clutch (285785, including the mating white plastic piece that clips to the bottom of the drive basket), top seal in gear case (3349985), oil in gear case. There are two problems which existed before I changed those parts out: (1) Spin cycle doesn't always engage with torque and/or stop quickly when I open the lid (it just spins freely and gradually slows down). (2) Water drips from center of washer seemingly when the loads are full, towards the end of the wash cycle and into the spin cycle. The water appears to have some small black particles in it. The black can not be runoff from the top of the gear case since I cleaned the exterior. The housing interior previously had a ring of gunk about 6" from the bottom, that's why I changed out the top seal in the gear case and put in new oil, replaced the clutch including that white plastic piece. I inspected the gear case, I didn't see any chipped or broken parts inside. When I had the agitator out, I didn't see any items underneath potentially blocking drainage. The lid switch works and the timer starts every cycle appropriately as the knob turns.
Does it leak every time it's run, or only occasionally? It could be that the belt on the drain pump is going bad or is loose, so it works some times but not always. Could be that the belt broke or the drain failed, so it will always leak from now on. It's hard to say without actually taking it apart and having a look
