Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer
Washer fills and drains but agitator does not move and loud howling noise is heard when in wash cycle, no noise but spin cycle does not cause tub to spin. I have removed the outer cabinet completely and found three small plastic 'catch' cups with each holding a three inch long pin. The pin has smooth head is flat on one side the entire length with 1/4 inch hole near the point. Previous answer indicates the drive engage for the spin/agitate and gave some instructions on replacement. Would you agree with that analysis? What are the pins? They appear to have a purpose other than sitting in the plastic 'catch cups'.

It sounds like it has something to do with the pump which can be located in the direction of the noise. It could be something as simple as the belt wearing out or even just the pump came loose off of its mounts. Worst case scenario would be a new pump but it honestly sounds like something a little less intrusive. I know I had one that I had to hold down with a bungee cord because the mount had broken off of it.

This is an easy one to solve. Those are moving pins , when in transport. When it is delivered, the delivery people simply just pull on some straps and the pins fall in the cup. You need to keep these when moving washer to put back in, so not to damage anything.

SOURCE: terrible noise when agitating
Your transmission has gone out. The reason the spin cycle works is because the transmission spins two different ways and you agitate way stripped the gear. Some places rebuild them. Try with your local stores maybe they can rebuild it or get you a good used one. If not you can order a new one from sears.com

To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.
