Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
...only getting a humming sound....i think a small pillow may have caused the problem....also if you need to check the belt on washer or dryer how do you go about it?
If the machine is not spinning or agitating and you are getting a humming sound the the motor coupling is probably out... lean the machine back and look in between the motor and transmission... you either see two round plastic pieces sandwiching a rubber piece, or you'll see chewed up rubber and broken plastic... these machines don't have belts... this motor coupling acts as the "belt"

There is no belt on this washer. It uses a motor coupling in place of a drive belt. More than likely the motor coupling has broken and requires replacement. If the washer will fill, will not agitate or spin, but will still drain, these are the symptoms of a broken motor coupling. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:
The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase a replacement on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11.
