Please use this website above to help you isolate your issue, what you really need to do is get a Service manual for your exact make and model. Often the balance weight can come off, or the motor goes unbalanced. but you need a service manual to be able to troubleshoot,

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore 600 model 110.28622700 that

This assumes that you have a KENMORE top load, direct drive, neutral drain washers are made Whirlpool.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.28622700&pathTaken=partSearch

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The problem points to the brake.

The washer uses a brake system to stop the basket at the end of the spin cycle.

Just like a brake on a car, it's designed to slip a bit so that the basket / car doesn't come to an abrupt halt.

Over time, the brake shoes can jam against the brake drum and bring the basket to a halt too quickly with a lot of noise.

A way to solve this (that I tried and it works) is to pull the basket tube / brake assembly and if the brake shoes look OK, spray a small amount of silicone spray on the inside of the brake drum.

Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor, transmission and basket drive tube on Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper direct drive washers.

As an aside, you don't need a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've found that a short (10") pipe wrench hooked over one of the spanner nut tabs and tapped with a hammer will usually loosen the nut. Also, rather than hitting the Drive block directly with a hammer, put a short piece of wood under it first to protect it.

Following are the Whirlpool Service manual for this type of washer and the Whirlpool parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models are basically the same.

Whirlpool has a replacement brake lining kit if you need it.

Why does my samsung washer thump when it is trying to spin


Load is not balanced. Move clothes around in bowel to distribute the weight. If its front loader, take some out and see how it does. They typically balance themselves, but if you load too much in them you may have to help it a little...front loader may have leg out of level also.

A/c is cold, but loud noise and shaking in dashboard when on high. sounds like something is wrong with fan. can you offer some assitance?


Either fan is out of balance (slung off balance clip or cracked at the center mount) or something has gotten into the fan. I've personally had things such as pencils in the fan that fell down through the defroster vents. I've also (living in rural area) had a mouse die in the fan. It not only went "thump, thump, thump", but it really stunk up the truck! Remove the fan to check for foreign items or damage to the squirrel cage.
