What is causing my Kenmore top washer to make a grinding noise before the rinse cycle?

Have you replaced the clutch or spin tube? There is a brake actuator that comes with the clutch kit and if this is broken it can make a very loud grinding or clacking sound.

The coupler between the motor and the trans is history. The part only cost about 15. Pull your washer away from the wall and tilt it back against it. See the black deposits on the floor? That is the debris of the coupler - rubber and plastic . Take off the water pump = remove the clips and let it hang. Next remove the screws in the clips for the motor and pry the clips off. The motor will now come away from the trans. Remove the damaged coupler parts and replace them with the new one. Reassemble the parts and wash your clothes.

A grinding noise from a washer more often than not means that your motor coupling is worn or broken. The coupling is a small plastic and rubber piece between the motor and the transmission. Not too difficult to replace yourself and very inexpensive. If it is the coupling you may see bits of rubber beneath the machine. If you look up underneath the machine it will be obvious of the coupling is your issue. If not I would recommend calling a licensed repairman to check it out.

Kenmore washer will not spin or drain water,agitate works fine

Sounds like a lid switch. there should be a hole under the lid on the right side about the size of a dime. Make sure the plastic "flipper" is inside and "clicks" when you push down on it with a pen.
