Re: whirlpool type 111 cp1915409 top loader

A few things may cause a grinding noise during the spin cycle. If the washer fills normally, but when it starts to AGITATE or SPIN, it makes a noise, this is usually caused by a bad motor coupling, bad transmission, basket drive assembly, or drive motor that's starting to fail. I also wouldn't rule out the clutch. It's really hard to tell without being there to see and hear what it is doing. I would also hate to tell you to call a repairman, but it may be wise in this situation because, even if you DO know what the problem is, it may be beyond your capabilities to repair. I could give you step by step tips on how to replace the parts, but diagnosing the CORRECT one would be the challenge. I hope this helps you some. PS The likely suspect in this case would be the transmission. Not a guarantee, but a guess.

Machine gets stuck between rinse ans spin and sits for a while then spins but wont stop, then **** from the in the machine or hose is on the clothes???? Any suggestions? Machine is a top loader smart drive...

You could try a hot load with epsom salts....this will clean out the machine....Make sure it is with hot water. It goes slow in between rinse and spin possibly because it is slow draining...clean out the pump. Also as it FILLS make sure the water runs in properly and not just trickle in making a hissing noise. Good luck. Tony the technician.

My top loader Kenmore type 111 is working fine until it get to the spin cycle. It won't spin and it makes a really loud buzzing sound. like a weedwacker or something. Help!!!

verify that hot and cold water are not reversed and BOTH are turned on. Sounds like water is shut off. Water valves are noisy without water pressure.

Kenmore 80's series top loader only works on wash and rinse cycle

This is a problem with the pump being stuck so the motor cant turn the whole thing. Turn the washer on its side, underneath you can acces the pump, which is connected to the motor by two long clips. remove the pump and take out the colg that caused it to get stuck.

While it is filling up try this. Unplug the washer from the wall, if the water still runs then you need to replace the mixing valve. If the water stops then take the screws out at the base of the console and flip the controls back. Look for the clear hose that goes to the water pressure switch and make sure that it is connected. If it is connected take it off the switch and blow through it to see that it is clear of any obstructions.
If this only overfills after the first ore second wash then you may have the slow drain and the drain hose is in the downspout too tight.
Possible items needed;
#1 mixing valve
#2 pressure switch
#3 plumber
