Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

My kenmore clothes washer is grinding on the spin cycle. It is not the coupling because I just changed that. I am thinking that it has something to do with the gearcase. It almost sounds like a shaft somewhere is hitting something as it is spinning. It is loud.

THE SPIN BASKET ON YOUR MACHINE SITS ON A PART CALL THE DRIVE BLOCK. THIS CAN BE BROKEN.

YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE AGITATOR. UNDER THAT YOU WILL SEE A BIG NUT WHICH IS TIGHTENED ONTO THE "DRIVE BLOCK. LOOK CLOSELY NEAR THE CENTER OF IT AND YOU WILL TWO EARS THAT COME UP SLIGHTLY TO JOIN THE DRIVE BLOCK. THE EARS COULD BE NOT CONTACTING PROPERLY AND ALLOWING IT TO SLIP. THIS CAN SOUND LIKE A MACHINE GUN SOMETIMES.

OR, THE DRIVE BLOCK IS JUST BROKEN AND ALOWED THE SPIN TUB TO SLIP DOWN AND NOW ITS RUBBING AGAINST THE OUTER SHELL.

I have Kenmore washer,model #110.28882790. grinding noise when in spin cycle. not spinning! What is possible defects?


Sounds like the washers drive coupling is broken. Part number 285753A. The coupling connects the motor to the transmission and when it breaks it can make a grinding noise. Since it is not turning the transmission anymore it cannot spin. Hope this helps

Our Kenmore top load model 22422 started having problems with the spin cycle. Once it gets to the spin cycle, it makes a terrible grinding like noise - it is not spinning. However it will drain if you let...


The double shaft motor does double duty. One direction for wash and another direction for spin. In wash mode the water stays put in the tub because the pump is running backwards. In spin mode the motors turns in opposite direction. This pumps the water out and spins the clothes dry. From what you have described the drive coupler is toast.

My washer wont spin


Most likely it's a motor coupling. (Between motor and transmission - brakes when you overload it.)

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
