Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Kenmore 110.20722990 Sub-frame leans

I replaced the transmission and reassembled the washer exactly as I took it apart -- or so I thought. Now, the frame assembly which the motor/transmission attaches to (and, therefore, the tubs) lean to the front and right of the machine (looking at it from the front of the machine). It is as if the motor is weighing it down in those directions. Consequently, when reassembled, the tub is out of allignment and wobbles.

All the springs are in their proper place/allignment -- I think. I did not have the frame assemblies apart or off the machine.

Urgent help/advice/diagram needed as we have been without a washer for two weeks now and our family of six is losing friends from the aroma!

Thanks

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

I took apart my kenmore seires 90 washer not knowing what i was doing. i took out the tree bolts holding the transmission on and a c-clip holding what apears to be brake parts. how do i get it back...


See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

The brake is a part of the spin tube.

The clip you removed is probably for the clutch.

Also see the following Whirlpool Service and parts manuals for their top load, direct drive washers.

Washer won't agitate. New transmission...new timer.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Top load, direct drive Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a reversing motor.

It turns one way for agitating and reverses for draining and spinning.

It sounds as if either the motor is shot or one of the connectors is bad.

As a place to start, see the Whirlpool Service manuasl (with wiring diagrams) for their top load, direct drive washers.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

You should be able to see where the springs attach by looking at the base diagram.

Following also is the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDF on how the transmissions work but it also has a good diagram of where the springs attach.

I don't believe that the counterweight spring attaches to the brake.

Washer all over the place.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

In addition to the springs, I'd check the suspension plate and base assembly pads. These are also used to keep the washer from walking.

See the Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and maintenance manual for these washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

When we took ours apart to work on the transmission, we broke one of these and the washer walked all over the place.

$10.00 for a replacement set solved the problem.

If you removed the drive tube to fix the brake, make sure that the two tabs on the drive tube fit into the slots in the basket drive block.

Kenmore 70 series washer, clothes are soaking wet after spinning


If it fill and motor runs but will not agitate it likely is the coupler. If you have the cabinet off and see the motor here is what you do.
there are 2 metal straps that attach the motor to the transmission. take the screws out that hold the straps on and pop the straps out of their slots. the motor will then come off and the coupler is between the motor and transmission. One section goes on motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft with rubber bushing in between.
Coupler part number is 285753A

Washing machine won't spin


Sounds like you a broken coupler. This is what makes the washer spin. You can check this by leaning the machine back and feeling for a rubber coupler between the motor and transmission. if this part wiggles or is missing replace it, its broke. Another sign of it being broke is rubber under the machine when you tilt it back.
