Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
THE AGGITATER WILLMOVE BY HAND-BUT IT WILL NOT AGGITATE IT MAKES A GRINDING NOISE-DOES NOT SPIN-BUT IT DOES DRAIN
Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean
that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that
protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the
rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you
smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad
drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is
alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive
gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand,
indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught
between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch
problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch,
but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different
sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate or spin...
