Re: Kenmore Elite King Size Top Load Washer

I have a kenmore model 110.22642. My problem is when the tub is filled w/ water and is about to agitate it makes mostly a clicking noise and maybe a little of "grinding" sound near the bottom of the washer. It will not go any further in the cycle as it won't drain or do anything else. What do u think?

Re: Kenmore Elite King Size Top Load Washer

If your washer fills, agitates, drains, but will not spin, the likely cause is the gear case (transmission). A new gear case can run about $200 just for the part. With labor, this could be a bit expensive to repair. I hope this helps you some.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.

The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.
