Re: kenmore washer direct drive

Most likely a bad motor. I have seen same results with a locked up gearcase, but you wouldn't be able to spin tub.

Kenmore series 90 washing machine clunking and burning smell

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.26902691

See the section on the Machine Base.

There are a number of balance springs and vibration pads that help keep the tub from vibrating and going out of balance.

It's possible that one or more of these is broken, loose or damaged.

Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet to get access to them.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for their direct drive washers.$FILE/L-55.pdf

For the vibration, I'd check the springs and vibration pads.

While you have the cabinet off, I'd pull the pump and motor and check the Motor Coupler. This could be the cause of the "burning smell"

Kenmore washer won't spin unless you help it get started

Replace the brake on the transmission shaft. It is binding. While you have it torn down replace the direct drive coupling also.

That is a bad water valve. Try my washer PICTORIAL for directions on replacing that water valve. NOTE: this is a pictorial of how to replace your drive coupling but you need to bust this ****** loose to get to that valve.

Kenmore Front Load Washer Drive Belt Keeps rubbing up against Tub

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you hav removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

Whirlpool duet washer wont run

sounds as if perhaps the hummm is coming form the drain pump not the motor, remove the front cover and you ll be able to acess the drain pump resivior, unscrew it and you find all sorts if things jammed into the pump preventing free spinning, 7 years servicing this unt never saw a bad motor, 1000's of pumps
