Kenmore direct drive washing machine... there no


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.

This problem points to a couple of places:



The first unfortunately is the motor. Kenmore / Whirlpool top load direct drive washers use a reversing motor.

When in agitate mode, the motor turn one way, When in spin mode it turns the other way for draining and spinning.

I'd check the following first before assuming that it's the motor though.


First, I'd pull the agitators and check for worn or damaged splines inside the agitator or on the agitator shaft.

Following is a description of how to take them out.

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

If the agitator and shaft are OK, the problem may be in the transmission.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

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

I'd also look at the troubleshooting section of the manual.


Starting at page 10, you'll see a description of how the transmission changes from agitate to spin mode.

The key (and likely problem) is the "agitator spring".

The spring holds the agitate gear down so that the two sets of splines on the agitate gear are connected and the agitate rack can turn the agitators.

See the following Whirlpool parts list for a blow-up of the transmission and how the various gears and springs connect.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

See the following for how to remove the transmission and clutch.

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

Tearing apart the transmission is a bit messy but if the problem is the spring or agitate cams, it's a lot less expensive to fix than a $170 transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover and drain the oil.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Carefully remove the clip that holds the main Spin Gear on and remove it.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

Check the spring, Agitate Cams and the cams in the Neutral Drain Assembly.

Re-assembly is obviously the reverse of taking it apart.

If you're reasonably comfortable with tools you can fix it yourself.

When we had a problem with ours, we ended up spending less than $30 replacing the agitate cams, neutral drain assembly and oil instead of $170 for a transmission. It was worth fixing.

As an aside, tearing the washer apart will give you the opportunity to completely clean it.

Whirlpool washing machine clutch replacement


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. For servicing the clutch you’ll need to first remove the gear case. The gear case can be removed by first removing the outer cabinet. After removing the cabinet, remove the pump and motor assembly. Now carefully lay down the washer on its back and remove the 3 bolts securing the gear case. Now pull the gear case straight out from the tube support assembly. Now, compress the clutch spring with a pair of pliers and lift the lining from the clutch hub. To remove entire clutch assembly begin by removing the spin tube thrust washer up & off the agitator and then remove the tube support ring. Remove the retainer ring and lift the clutch hub up and off spin pinion.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

NOTE:

You don't have to remove the agitator(s) to get to the clutch.

You do have to take out the bolts that hold the agitator(s) to the main spin shaft inside the drum. The main spin shaft is part of the transmission.

You also don't have to remove the Spin Tube and Brake assembly.

It is a lot easier to remove the transmission if you lay the washer down on its' back.

Washer makes loud metalic clicking/grinding sound when washing and spinning Model number (110.15942401)


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/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.15942401

There are a few places to check in the washer.

1. The Clutch

2. The Brake system

3. The splines on the agitate shaft and / or agitator

4. The agitate cam and / or gear in the transmission.

Please see the following :

ILLUSTRATED DESCRIPTION OF REMOVING CABINET THRU TRANSMISSION.

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

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore operations and maintenance manual describing how the washer works and in particular how the neutral drain assembly works.

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

You'll be able to see on the Sears site, the internal construction of the transmission. The Agitate Cams and Neutral Drain assembly cogs are plastic and can wear / break over time.

When ours had a major noise / grinding problem when spinning, we tracked the problem to the agitate cams not lifting the agitate gear high enough (less than 1/16" above the gear on the agitate shaft. Replacing it cost less that $15 vs. $170 for a transmission.

If the Drive Brake, Clutch, agitator splines and agitator shaft seem OK, the problem points to the transmission.

If it appears to be the agitate cams, following is a description of how we replaced them.

Assuming that you know how to remove the cabinet, agitator (you don't need to remove the tub), pump, motor and transmission the agitator cam and follower use the same whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.

I had the same problem with gear grinding and this solved it.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (16 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

Washing machiene agitator can only handle small loads


The dogs are not the problem. Assuming you have the series that uses dogs, the problem would be either: a broken motor coupling that barely grabs and can move the agitation with a small load but not with anything substantial (of which it will soon slip 100% of the time and nothing will move), or the clutch is worn and slipping---- just like a bad transmission in a car; when you go on level ground, the car has no problem, but start to go up an incline and the trans cannot do the job because it slips too much. Replacing the clutch/transmission assembly of the washer is no easy task. In either case, you need to remove the motor & pump assembly; this will give you a chance to see the coupling (if it has broken fingers). If the problem is not the coupling, you need to go to the center of the machine; the trans/clutch/shaft assembly and have good tools to handle it. A big word of advise: replace the coupling even if it does not look too bad because they go bad easily and are cheap to replace while you have it all apart. Good Luck. Macgivor.

Agitator doesn't turn or turns slowly


HI. Your agitator sits on top of a drive shaft that is connected to a clutch assembly that has many plastic parts. There is also a bearing assembly as well. I suspect the internal vital parts are stripped and, the clutch may be having issues initiating the agitation effect due to these failed parts.i recommend inspecting the drive shaft and clutch assembly for broken or stripped out parts. also, check the bearings as well.

please rate and god bless.
