Question about Kenmore 20722
Kenmore 70 Series (Heavy Duty Plus) Model 110.82372120: The tub fills with water and once it starts to agitate a sound like rubber grinding against a wheel is heard. What would cause this and is it fixable? This has been a great washer for over 25 years and I don't want to give up on it yet!

set the load size to small, fill with water.
now after it fills with water do you hear anything? motor noise?
If you hear motor noise, it probably has a broken motor coupler.
if it doesnt do anything I would look at the lid switch and activator, the lid has to close and the switch has to know it closed. did the tab on the lid break off?

It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.
You have now replaced the washer pump.

You have a broken lid switch. Check to see if the switch is broken off of the two screws that hold it under the lid. If it is, get a new one, take off the case and replace old switch with the new one.
