Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
There is also an excellent PDF document from Whirlpool describing how Direct Drive washers work.
We has the same basic problem with a Kenmore direct drive washer. At the end of the spin cycle we heard a loud noise as the brake stopped the drum from spinning.
Sometimes, what can happen is that the brake will grab the brake drum, like a brake on a car suddenly locking a wheel.
The brake is supposed to slow down and stop the drum without locking.
We were able to spray a small amount of silicone spray inside the brake drum, which allowed the shoes to more gently grab the drum.
See GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase
Remove the cabinet and look at the drum directly above the silver colored clutch assembly.
Using an spray can of silicone spray, and a directional tube, spray a very small amount into the brake drum.
