SOURCE: Loud clicking noise at spin cycle

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that has gone bad. Most of the Kenmore top loaders that I'm familiar with are direct drive machines. Which means, they use a motor coupling between the electric drive motor and transmission to run. If you are in the habit of doing heavy loads like comforters, blankets and jeans this can put a heavy burden on the motor coupler and wear it out faster. The coupler is designed to take the burden of the punishment in order to protect the transmission and drive motor and it is common for them to wear out. The coupler is fairly easy to replace and usually runs about $15. It is located inside the machine between the drive motor and transmission under the wash tub. You would have to remove the outside machine casing, the water pump and drive motor to get to it, though. Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any repairs involving removal of the drive motor. If you are not mechanically inclined, you may want to seek the aid of a repairman. I hope this helps.

This may sound basic and I'm not trying to be a wise guy, but is there any metal objects in the washer, like a pair of jeans with metal buttons? This could be the clicking that you hear.

My MayTag Atlantis washer will not spin or drain the water out, when it gets to the rinse cycle or spin cycle , it just makes a buzzing or clicking noise.


The brake mechanism is not releasing properly. The noise your hearing is the motor trying to move but can't. Do not continue to operate the washer or you will burn out the motor...an expensive replacement. See instructions for my other solutions.

No spin cycle


dear zoofan.lets see hum.....to agaitate the motor goes one direction.to spin useing the same belt it goes the oposing direction.so when spins lid switch completes curcit to motor then it would spin so if click you hear is the motor protector switch [its like a curcit breaker] kicksout that means you lid switch is working. but could the noise be the timer advancing? timer makes clicking noieses also.then that would put into question your lid switch.but you said it starts again after a few minutes.if thats a sure thing then it ,your motor is involved but a possiable is somthing is between the tubs[thats a visiual inspection]sock,any clothing or if had a nail or somthing of that sort going thru small holes in inner tub then jaming or draging on the outer tub that could stop the tub but most of the time the motor would go and would burn the belt.hope i gave you a few clues,God bless ,tom
