SOURCE: Kenmore washer will not agitate or spin & makes grinding noise

CHECK THE MOTOR coupler located between the motor and then transmission this will be a good place to start if you lean back the washer and look from the bottom you will see a thing between the motor and the tranny that looks like a oreo cookie check and see if that is broken in any way

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Sounds like a failed motor coupler part number 285753. It connects the motor to the trans. You can lean the unit back to change this part. Remove the pump remove the motor and you will see it.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

SOURCE: my Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin, and it just makes a loud gear grinding noise. What could this be, and how do I fix, in the simplest form please I'm chick... :)

rebecca it is probably the motor coupler. Move or slide ur machine over and if there is ruber filings under it then it is the coupler.

SOURCE: i have a kenmore frontloading washer, during the spin cycle a noise like grinding can be heard, grinding can also be heard when turning drum by hand...help

its the drum bearings that support the inner drum,you need to replace these bearings,the problem with this is it was manufactured by frigidaire for kenmore and you cant just buy the inner bearing and lip seal as it comes with the outer rear half of the outer.tub where as with maytag neptune or whirlpool duet you can drive these bearin gs out and re-use the tub half,but you can't buy just the bearings and seal for a frigidaire front loader

SOURCE: Why does washer make grinding metal sounds during wash cycle only?

When it is washing, look to see if the basket is moving at all. The basket should be stationary during the agitation cycle.

Samsung dryer, model: DV317AEG turns on, but won't spin


Could be the motor is full of lint. Depending on how mechanically inclined you are take the belt off and spin the barrel and the motor separately motor should spin free, barrel a little harder to spin,but spin at least a quarter turn after letting go.

Heat between the doors is normal, It can be a bit concerning but don't worry about it.
The fans do wear out on fridges and can be replaced if the noise bothers you. As long as the fan is still turning it won't affect the operation.

The washer filled up with water but not won't drain spin and is making a funny noise . It's an older magic chef.


The most common issue would be the coupler for the motor transmission. It is a rubber coupling and when it goes bad it makes a grinding, or whirring noise and the machine won't spin or wash. You need to remove the cabinet and look directly under the tub where the motor and tranny connect. This is a reletivly easy and cheap fix. Just google how to replace motor coupling on a top load washer and you may also include your make and model for more direct instructions.

Won' spin out and makes a loud noise like a grinding sound


The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.
