I lloked up your washer and it is an old belt-drive machine. they were real workhorses, but now kind of outdated. there are not many repairmen who are willing to work on these beasts. the problem is that as one problem is fixed, another might pop up and the repairman will be expected to remedy any future problems...because he touched it. if you can locate a repairman who will work on your washer, if it is in good shape, it would probably be worth fixing

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

Grinding washing machine agitator


more than likely the pump is the part that is making the noise. You can verify this by leaning the machine back where you can see the pulleys, your pump will be the one in the back. Remove the belt and each pulley should turn smoothly. The part number for the pump is 35-6780

I have a Lady Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care Heavy Duty 90 series top load washer that is about 20-25 years old and works very well. I think that an object has slid under the big thing in the middle of the...


if it is like the other you have to remove the top cover of the agitator cap with a small flat head screwdriver, then using a 7/16" socket and ratchet with an extension remove the bolt(right hand thread) and pull up the agitator.

good luck to you.

Won't spin and loud noise


Kenmore washers could hold a few problems. First, without a model number you don't know who makes it. See, Kenmore does not make washers, they have someone else make them such as Whirlpool or Frigidaire. More that likely you have a Whirlpool (which is a good thing). What you are probably hearing is the coupler of the machine broken. A coupler is what replaced a belt in the newer machines. This piece is installed in between the motor and transmission. If it breaks it makes a loud rattle/grind sound. It is possible that the transmission is also the culprit. However, this noise is entirely different. A bad transmission generally makes a loud screech noise. If this does not help, please post a model number of the washer and I will gladly further assist you :)
