Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
Washer making a squalling sound during spin cycle.
It might be your motor coupling going bad. The motor coupling sits between the motor and the transmission and is what spins the transmission when the motor starts. It's a cheap little part made out of plastic and housed in a rubber gasket. What you can do to check it is this. Unplug the washer and tip it back. Put your hand between the motor and transmission in the small little crevasse. You will feel the motor coupling between there. You can turn it by hand and as your turn it feel to see if it feels melted or if there are any soft spots. Feel if there are any weak areas or if it feels torn at all. It may feel fine though, it could be that one of the teeth on the inside are broken which you won't be able to tell unless you remove it. That's easy too, two screws on the two black clamps that hold the motor up. Remove those and pop one of the clamps off with a flat head screw driver. The motor will come right off and the motor coupling will come with it. If it's damaged just get a new one. They cost around 10 bucks and are common enough that they should be available at any local appliance repair shop. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck.
