Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Top loading Kenmore washing machine (Model 110 064518527) agitator makes noise when spinning. Sounds like agitator is rubbing. Any suggestions on how to repair?
I can't find your model number on the Sears Parts Site:
If this is a basic top load, direct drive, Neutral Drain washer, the problem could point to the transmission "Agitate Cams".
See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for these washers.
The agitate cams are used to raise the agitate gear above the connecting rack during the spin cycle.
Following is a Whirlpool parts list for commercial versions of these washers although the consumer model uses the same part numbers.
See part # 62580 (About $15.00)
I had the same problem with gear grinding and this solved it.
See the following for how to pull the transmission. You don't have to remove the tub!!
Pull the transmission.
Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.
Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.
Remove the transmission cover.
Pull off the spin pinion.
Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.
The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.
Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.
Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.
The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)
It sounds like a complicated job but it really isn't and certainly less expensive that a $170 transmission.
