    It agitates somewhat. If took a socket and turned the drum and it appears that something seems stripped in the transmission. It catches about half way through a turn of the wrench. I purchased this washer in 2003. How would i tell if the transmission is still under warranty?

    During agitation, the washer has begun to make a very loud noise. I've found that it is not spinning out, but agitating during the spin cycle, too. I just made some inquiries on repair and was told that the transmission has a ten year warranty...BUT...$225. for installation plus $60 in seal/bearing kits. Look on the Maytag site for a repair business in your area.

IT COULD BE SOMETHING IN THE TRANSMISSION. DOES IT AGITATE AS IT IS SUPPOSED TO? IF IT DOESNT, I WOULD SUSPECT THE TRANSMISSION, IF IT DOES, i WOULD START BY LOOKING AT THE PUMP. THERE IS A PIECE OF METAL THAT HOLDS THE BEARING CENTERED IN THE PULLEY OF THE PUMP. OVER TIME, THE METAL CAN COME OUT AND MAKE CONTACT WITH THE BOTTOME OF THE PUMPS MOUNTING PLATE CAUSING QUITE A NOISE. ALSO, DEPENDING ON WHEN YOU BOUGHT YOUR WASHER, THOSE MACHINES HAD A TEN YEAR PARTS WARRANTY ON THE TRANSMISSION.

2 possible things. the spinner drum bearings are giving up. This can show as a rusty water dribble under the machine.
The motor bearings are giving up.
Both of which require a good DIYer or an appliance engineer.

The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Kenmore 90 Series Washer Noise--Won't spin


For Tegres
If the noise is only when there is water flowing, check tighten the screws that mount the water fill solenoid valves to the case. The solenoids operate on line current so they vibrate at 60/50Hz (local suppply frequency) if they are loose at all, the noise is loud the body acts as resonators

For SRONEAL, that symptom describes coupling failure exactly, have you removed the coupling to check, often times the motor side hub is stripped, but there is no visible external damage

Washer won't drain, makes loud noise


This problem, or some variation thereof evidently is very common with these Whirlpool Washers!  I have same problem.  So far, best I have found is at  http://applianceguru.com/forum2/5958.html#
diagnosis by someone who knows.  What William Burk says there makes sense.  However, to get to the drive block there's quite a bit of disassembly required.  I am stopped because I cannot get the spanner nut off.  Hope this gives you some help toward finding a more comprehensive answer

Kenmore 80 series top loading washer won't agitate and is noisy


Sounds like u may have broken the coupler gear between the motor and transmission... the replaced the belt with these gears on this model... But should go fill & pumb water out and NOT spin Or agitate... IF these gears or broke or stripped... heavy loads like u  said would do this... recheck and see if wash will pumb water out But will NOT agitate or spin.. IF so the above is your problem  and is Not to hard to repair  or much money

Below is a pic with the motor remove the white piece in the middle is 1/2 of the gear system with a rubber piece in the middle (not there)  and another like gear on the motor
sounds like these gears may be broken or stripped on your washer
