Your washer is a direct drive which means the transmission that drives the washer drum to agitate it directly mounted to it. Between the two items is a coupler. That coupler has shear pins which have sheared off causing the grinding noise. The coupler can be obtained a a very low price and SEARS may even stock it

What is causing my Kenmore top washer to make a grinding noise before the rinse cycle?


Have you replaced the clutch or spin tube? There is a brake actuator that comes with the clutch kit and if this is broken it can make a very loud grinding or clacking sound.

My Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin, and it just makes a loud gear grinding noise. What could this be, and how do I fix, in the simplest form please I'm chick... :)


rebecca it is probably the motor coupler. Move or slide ur machine over and if there is ruber filings under it then it is the coupler.

Won't spin--just makes a grinding noise


Hi.

The grinding noise usually means that there are objects stuck in the drain pump filter.

with front loader the drain pump filter is often located behind an access door or a trim on the front side at the bottom. Open the door or remove the trim, then unscrew the cap. Be prepared to collect the water. Disconnect power before starting.

Top loaders have pump access from underneath or at the back.

My maytag legacy series top load washer sav405deww makes a horrible grinding noise. It also doesn't drain and seems to spin slowly when it decides to even spin. I've replaced the belt and the pulley wheel...


That grinding noise your hearing is most likely the center bearing in a maytag they are usally very easy to break and mainly because when they make maytags they dont put the right type of grease on the bearing itself which causes the machines not to last the 10 years that we all think they could. This repair is honestly not worth the amount of money that it would cost to repair I've seen technicians price this job out between 450 as a low and 600 as a high and considering you can buy a brand new top loader for 2-400 it really isnt worth the effort in trying to resurect the machine. Please also note maytags are notorious for the center bearings disintergrating because of poor factory assembly. Sorry about the bad news. when looking for a new washer if your going with a top loader stick to the whirlpool there easy to fix cheap for parts and last alot longer. Please remember to rank this opinion and if i can answer any further questions please message me back. Thanks again (p.s. on whirlpool make sure if you buy a new one you ask if the drive couple has metal around the shaft dont get the plastic one they let go in two years and then techs charge 180 bucks to repair a 6 dollar part)

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

80 Series top loader excessive vibration and noise on spin


check the screw feet, on the front corners, one may be not screwed down far enough to be 'tight' to the floor allowing a small movement that makes a lot of noise, halting under pressure suggests this is the case
