Question about Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore 90 Series 20922990 Washer. The agitator had stopped working and the machine also would not spin. I searched online and found out it was probably the motor coupling. I followed the instructions, opened it up, and replaced the coupling (it was broken). I put it back together, and it worked nicely for a few minutes, then it started making a very rapid clicking sound and stopped agitating. I opened it up and put back two more times to make sure everything was in place. Now I'm afraid there is something else wrong. Also, when I took it apart the FIRST time, there was a puddle of dark brown/black gunk under the machine.
That dark brown gunk is the oil from the gearcase (transmission). If you had the washer tipped back, or laid it down, you shouldn't have. The oil will leak out. Leaking oil is also a symptom of a transmission going bad. It sounds like you need to replace the gearcase now. They aren't that expensive if you shop around. Searspartsdirect.com and appliancepartspros.com carry them. The part number is 3360629. The following link explains how to replace one if you decide to perform this repair yourself:
If you have any questions, plese let me know. I hope this helps you.
