General electric washer makes clacking soun in wash cycle every time it cycles.


There is a known problem with this GE model. Remove the front panel, look at the base plate below the motor. Can you see that it has been rubbing there? On that model the "front apron bracket" fails allowing the motor to rub againist the base. You will need to replace the apron with the new design they have out. Here is the part to order.
You may also check this by removing the front and run a load of wash and watch the motor.
Please post back your findings.

GE WDSR2120J wash cycle sound


It's possible that the tub suspension system is out of position. Open the cabinet top (use a thin putty knife in each front corner to release a spring clip) and watch the mechanism while washing. Try shaking the assembly to see if you can spot something rubbing. Hope this helps!

Grindin sound when washer agitates


Pop the front off and make sure the motor isn't rubbing on the bottom of the washer. I've seen the bottoms get bent up and touch the motor. Or sometimes the front brace at the top gets bent down and causes the whole tub to drop and motor to rub. If they are rubbing, you need to get that fixed or your clutch will end up falling off.

Hotpoint ultime wt640 has a slight squeek seem to be on front around door area had top off and turned drum motor and drum seem fine and springs ok


Remove rear cover of washer, remove drum belt,and from front of washer, spin drum by hand.
There should be no noticeable noise.
If you can still hear sqeek, then it could be a drum bearing that is dry or starting to fail. or the drum is rubbing on the front of the door seal
You should be able to detect what it is this way.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Rubbing noise from agitator in top load kenmore washing machine


I can't find your model number on the Sears Parts Site:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

However.

If this is a basic top load, direct drive, Neutral Drain washer, the problem could point to the transmission "Agitate Cams".

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for these washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

The agitate cams are used to raise the agitate gear above the connecting rack during the spin cycle.

Following is a Whirlpool parts list for commercial versions of these washers although the consumer model uses the same part numbers.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

See part # 62580 (About $15.00)

I had the same problem with gear grinding and this solved it.

See the following for how to pull the transmission. You don't have to remove the tub!!

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=962131af4fd992034867327e32162166


Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

It sounds like a complicated job but it really isn't and certainly less expensive that a $170 transmission.

I have a Kenmore topload washing machine, model 23034101. It vibrates & walks. I have adjusted the front feet to insure it is level, locked the nuts on the feet, and have reset the back feet - several...


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.23034101

Look at the section for the Machine Base.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load washers use a set of springs between the top and base of the tub, along with a set of vibration pads to control vibration and walking of the machines.

It's possible that one or more of the springs has come off or the pads have worn enough that the top frame is rubbing against the lower frame.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual to better see how these springs / pads are used.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

You will have to remove the cabinet to get to the springs / pads. Here is a description of how to do it.

It appears that your washer may not have end caps on the console that remove. If so, slip a thin putty knife under the ends of the console to release the clips that hold it to the cabinet.

Washer makes banging sound as it washes.IS NOT OUT OF BALANCE AND NO CODES ARE SHOWN .IS IT POSSIBLE DRUM IS LOOSE


Could be a suspetion fault, a broken top spring or lower shock absorber gone faulty. Tip the machine back and check the shocks aren't breaking up, also take the lid off and check the top springs are good(usually 2 screws at back of lid, lift and pull back to remove)

Kenmore Front Load Washer Drive Belt Keeps rubbing up against Tub


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you hav removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.
