Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
I have a kenmore series 80. It now has a loud noise during the spin cycle and wont agitate. Everything else on it works fine.
The problem is with your motor coupling. The motor coupling sits between the motor and the transmission and is what connects the two so it will spin. This go bad and break with age and with over loading. It is an easy and cheap repair. They cost around 20 dollars at your local appliance repair shop and are almost always on hand as they are common. To change it simply unplug the washer and tip it back. The pump will be the first thing you see, just remove the two black clips on the pump and push it out of the way. Don't take the hoses off the pump or you will have water everywhere. Next is the motor. Unhook the wire harness connected to it. There are two clamp on the motor connected by 4 screws, (two on each). Remove the screws and then with a flat head screw driver pop off the clamps. When you take off the first clamp you will want to be holding the motor as it is going to drop. Careful not to smash your fingers. The motor coupling is going to fall off with it, probably in pieces. Put your new one on, it only goes on one way, and put everything back together again. You will be back to good as new in no time. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad I could help.
