Sounds like you migh have a bad motor coupling 285753a, this machines equivelint to a belt, motor turning but transmission not??? doesit agitate or just make same horrible noise??? well if so heres how to replace it. looks and reads a lot longer then it actually takes. should be done in under 20 min.

remove 2 screws holding down console, depending on year they are either on the bottom of the face of console in both corners or looking over the top of unit you'll see 2 screw head in both corners screwing down into machine. remove the screws and the console will flip backwards. disconnect the harness going through he main top(lid switch assy). and twist off with a screwdriver the 2 brass wavy clips 3 inches in from either side of machine.( you nay have to twist hard but they will pop theyre sorta spring loaded), lift of the entire cabinet and set side. youll see the pump assy 2 spring clips remove it(leave the hoses attached just hold out of the way, next 2 spring clamps hold the motor and youll find the coupling just behind there, youll need to smack the coupling back on to the shaft, i use the back end of my nut driver and hit with small hammer. dont need to kill it but will need to be forced on, and your done reassemble, (dnot forget ot plug back in the lid switch before closing the console,) ant the cabinet hooks under the front of machine and should fall right back into place, the brass clips will line up real good when cabinet is on properly just a firm push down and they snap right back in

Loud banging noise during spin cycle

If you balanced the machine, the only other problem could be the load itself. Either the load is too great or if washing a single item its falling to one side, tilting the drum and when spinning it will thump. Try even lodes.

My kenmore series 80 washing machine makes a clicking sound during the spin cycle.

Might be something lodged in the drain pipe on the drum, such as a coin or similar object.

Kenmore 90 series with speed selector switch set to heavy duty cycle it works fine any other setting , regular , hand wash setting the agitator makes a loud clicking sound as it agitates

sounds like a transmition problem. does the noise happen when it goes into spin on the other settings? If no noise in the spin cycle on the other setting, then it sounds like a the gears in the transmition internally when bad for the agitation.

Kenmore 23012, spin cycle problem

This sounds like a broken coupler gear. I'm having the same problem with my Kenmore-80 Series. The machine fill up, pump out, but when I try to spin I get nothing and the I can hear the motor humming/grinding. I've heard the coupler gear is not expensive $35 or so and the repair procedure is not difficult, but I can't locate how to fix it. If you find any additional information, please send my way. I don't want to pay $150 or so to have it serviced.
