Does the washing machine empty as normal? I am assuming it does and think the brushes on the motor could be worn. Hope this helps.

Looks like it was in the 16th week of 1996 so that would be around in April 1996... according to your serial number... btw it was actually made by Whirlpool for the Kenmore line at Sears..

The date of manufacture is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. If this is a Kenmore washer, it was probably manufactured by Whirlpool. The following link explains how to determine the age of an appliance manufactured by Whirlpool:
The second digit in the serial number represents the YEAR it was manufactured. The first two numbers after that digit, represent the WEEK it was manufactured (52 weeks in a year).
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: For future reference, please post a MODEL NUMBER and/or SERIAL NUMBER when submitting questions to get quicker and more accurate responses.

transmission has gone out. You need to have this looked at before using due to motor burn out. The transmission connects to the motor and operates tthe spin cycle.

If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:
1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.
2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.
a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.
b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.
3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.
4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.
5. Reinstall reverse of removal.
