Question about Washing Machines
Have a kenmore washer that made a loud grinding noise in the spin cycle then quit spinning altogether. coupler is fine. had oil on the floor. thinking its the gear case? don't know how to remove the gear case. any help would be appreciated.
You were able to get to the coupler??? if so youre were half way there. first off you will need a gearcase and a clutch assy. 1/2 socket , 7/16 socket adn maybe a reg screwdriver.start by removing the agitator from within the tub, after getting hte fabric softener dispenser off there is an opaque handled cover to remove, the you will see a 7/16 bolt remove it and the agitator will come off, set aside you may also have to remove a small white plastic(something or ohter) with a piece of steel (sorta like a cam/ lock)willlift right off the gearcase, next remove the cover and the pump and disconnect the motor so as you now have access to replace motor coupling.. you ll hten need to tip machine back and remove the (3) 1/2 inch bolts mounting the gear case to the underneath of of the machine and the gear case will now fall right out( litle persuasion never hurt anyone!!, the clutch will mount to the new gear case, and there are detailed instructions as to how in the withthe part
