This is a direct drive washer so there is no belt. The drive coupler that connects the motor to the tub may need to be replaced.

How old is Kitchenaid washer model number KAWS750JQ3?

Without the serial number I can not say exactly, but the only reference I can find (and the fact that no one sells this exact model anymore) puts the age at 13-14 years old. These were made in 2001.

I bought this used 6 mo. ago. the previous owners said it ran great but needed detergent dispenser that locks into the lid. searched everywhere to find one. got it, put it in, and it ran great aside from...

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Usually a suspension problem causes the detergent dispenser to break. A weak suspension strut socket strut & bushing Item 4 this link:
will allow the tub to oscillate too much so the result is a broken detergent dispenser.
The procedure is on page 42 and 43 of this manual:

Look at the picture of the rear strut on page 41 and ensure your rear struts are sitting in the mounts properly.

Rear struts are Item 7 this link:

Lastly make sure the unit is level with none of the leveling legs allowed to float above the floor.

Once you solve the suspension problem you should no longer have beach dispenser breaking problems. Take some time and read the 1622808 manual (our Bible) above paying close attention to many of the notes from pages 40 - 45.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a problem and want to know if it is worth fixing. Can you tell me how old this model is? Kenmore ultra fabric care ii heavy duty 90 series.the model is 110 92591220.

The manufacture date is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. The following link explains how to determine this on a Whirlpool manufactured washer:

The second digit in the serial number determines the YEAR it was manufactured. The first two numbers following the second digit identifies the WEEK (52 weeks in a year).

I have personally worked on these model washers and they are reliable. The average lif expectancy is 15 years on most appliances, but some I have found to be 20 years old and higher. They are a simple desgin and easy to work on for consumers or repair technicians. Replacement parts are also fairly inexpensive for most common failures. If you need further assistance, please post back and explain what symptoms you have. I hope you find this information helpful.

Hello, information request (birth date)

The manufacture date is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER on the appliance. The serial number should be located along with the model number on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid. Kenmore washers are manufactured by Whirlpool. The serial number format is explained in the following link:

The second digit in the serial number will represent the YEAR in was manufactured. The first two NUMBERS following that second digit represents the WEEK (52 weeks in a year) that it was manufactured.

If you locate the serial number and still need assistance in how to detemine the age, post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Whirlpool washer age

Your washer was manufactured in March of 1993. The manufacture date is determined by the Serial Number. The second letter "C" represents the YEAR of manufacture. The first two numbers "14" represent the WEEK it was manufactured. The 14th week puts the manufacturing in late March. I hope this helps you.

I recently bought a used Maytag Washer. Is there a way to tell the year-model by the serial number or model number?? Thank you for your help---Gordon, at

The age is determined by the last two LETTERS in the Serial Number (the first letter is the YEAR, the second letter is the MONTH). If you post back with the information I can tell you when the washer was manufactured.

Washer will not spin or drain water

I have a roper washing machine model RAB 2121kw and about a year ago it did the same. I was at the machine when it tried to spin one day and i opened the lid and spun the drum by hand a few times then shut the lid and slowly the drum started spinning. One problem is that i have just moved the washer and i now have an oil leak. When the drum wouldn't spin i think the motor heated the oil seal on the gear case and now it leaks. I have looked into it and don't think its that hard of a thing to change.
