It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer is 5 years old and making alot of noise during final spin


these frontloads are notorouis for having their rear bearing go out... if machine is all level and service told u the tub is bad then i would probably agree.... most of the newer frontloads had a 5yr parts warranty on the tub.....thet rear bearing is actually built in to the rear outer tub so replacing requires allot of labor as one must teardown unit and remove both drums and seperate and install new parts.... i would check your warranty for ur specific options,,, hope this helps

Washer wont spin in the spin cycle.Washer was full of water and making a buzzing noise.If you have any suggestions what it might be that would be great. Kenmore 80 series washer about 11 years old.


sounds like the lower bearing on the trans mission shaft is seizing up on you. had a frigedair that did the same thing. i took it apart to replace, but could not buy separate. it only came with a purchase of a new transmission,which ran $175- 275. so i junked it out. washer was only 5 years old.

Kenmore washer will not agitate or spin and makes a loud noise


I will cross my fingers that it isn't your transmission. One thing though that it could be is the agitator dogs. Pop of the top of the agitator and look down inside. You will see a ring of teeth and 4 little plastic pieces that sit inside. What these do is catch the agitator when it agitates and spins. Pull them out and see if the teeth on them are worn down and if they are replace them. If it is making noise though it is most likely going to be the transmission that is the problem. Try to find one that is refurbished as it is about 100 dollars less then a new one. If you have any other questions or need help with replacing the transmission let me know. I can give you a step by step walk through on changing that out. It's a pretty simple process. Let me know too if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help you out.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle


Have you checked the wire harness ,because the tapping of just 2 wires hitting the cabinet is overlooked alot.The noise just 2 wires makes simulates a hammer knocking inside.If the problem isn't escalating than check to see if your tub support arms are all tight.There are 12 of them.
