Water leaks under the washing machine Kenmore top loadin washer, model 110-234642300


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump

removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Also see the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to the pump.

Check the areas for the motor and pump and the Agitator Basket and Tub.

If you've checked the hoses to and from the pump the problem points to either the pump itself or to the Centerpost gasket.

Neither of these is too difficult to replace, the Gasket requires removing most parts of the washer although the pump is an easy replacement.

Im trying to remove the motor assy from my washing machine and am stuck it seems to be free but wont come all the way out it is a kenmore 4544190


Most Kenmore washers are made by whirlpool, though I cannot find the model number you gave (most Kenmore model numbers start with "110." then the rest of the model number) That being said, I'll see if I can help:

If indeed it is the whirlpool style, then when the cover of the washing machine is off, you will see on the front of the motor the drain pump. first that has to be taken off, remove the two clips, remove the two hose clamps and then the hoses off the pump, then (it may take some force) remove the pump.

Once the pump is out of the way, press the tab on the wiring harness connector to the motor and remove the connector from the motor.

Next there are two clips that hold the motor on, one on top and one on bottom. You will need to remove the two screws out of the clips and pop them off with a flat tip screwdriver. You'll have to hold the motor at this time. Twist the clips 90 degrees to remove the out of the way. The only thing now that will be holding the motor is the motor coupling and the rubber grommets to cushion the motor. Now you can pull the motor free from the front of the unit.

If this does not sound like the proper type of machine, Please recheck the model number of the washer.

My Kenmore Elite top load Washer tub won't turn. The water will pump out. There's a loud grinding sound when it should be agitating or spinning.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

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

Kenmore top load, direct drive, neutral drain washers use a "Motor Coupler" which acts as a fail safe between the motor and transmission.

When the washer goes into drain / spin mode, the motor reverses itself and drives the pump.

After draining for a while the motor drives the transmission.

Since it won't agitate or spin, power isn't getting to the transmission.

This is a relatively simple and inexpensive fix for these washers.

Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

Remove the cabinet.

Remove the pump held on by two clips.

Remove the two screws holding the motor clips on and remove the motor clips. You don't have to disconnect the motor electrical connections, just be sure that the power is disconnected from the washer.

Remove the motor and the two 1/2" bolts from the motor mounting plate.

Remove the plate.

You'll see plastic 3 pronged pieces on both the motor drive shaft and the transmission drive shaft.

Carefully remove these, I've found that using a small 6" pry bar works very well.

The rubber 6 hole piece between them is likely damaged or destroyed.

Install new plastic pieces on the motor and transmission. Use a 1/2" or larger socket to be sure to center and apply equal pressure around the plastic pieces.

Put the new rubber piece on the transmission piece.

Re-mount the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor piece with the three un-used holes in the rubber center piece and re mount the motor.

Clip the motor back on remembering to re-install the two screws in the motor clips.

Re-mount the pump using the clips that fit into the motor housing.

Re-install the cabinet, remembering to re-plug the Lid Switch and that job is done.

I hav ehte Kenmore 70 series model 22722. It seems to drain, but my clothes are still wet?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

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

If the washer pump drains (and you hear the motor), the timer is directing power to the motor to reverse itself and spin the pump. (timer, motor and pump should be OK)

If you lift the lid, put it down again and the washer begins to spin, the problem is likely in the transmission "Neutral Drain Assembly".

Those cams/gears etc. in that assembly keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode. Apparently, by opening and closing the lid, torque from the motor starting throws the cams into the right gears so that the washer will spin.

Ours had the same problem, no spin unless the lid was raised and lowered or we shut off and re-started the cycle.

After looking at the transmission parts list (available on a number of sites) and on the Whirlpool site (Whirlpool makes Kenmore) we noticed that the one of the cams in the neutral assembly which is supposed to have a small spring, didn't on ours when we tore the transmission apart again

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

Found the part number for a kit (Whirlpool part number 388253 Neutral Assembly) for $15.00 and replaced the cams and gears.

Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase


In order to get the transmission out, you have to remove the cabinet, the fabric dispenser and both agitators. The top agitator uses a plastic 1/2" drive bolt. You don't have to remove the drum.

Lay the machine down (after disconnecting power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside, remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission.

Broken washer belt


This machine has no belt. It does have a motor coupling. Easiest way to replace it is to lay the machine on its back. Remove the pump cilps and slide the pump out of the way. Remove the motor clips (they may each have a 5/16 screw), and slidt the motor out. Replace the coupling and assemble in reverse order. Coupling # 285753 available at www.timerking.com for 9.99 or from sears. Hope this helps!

Kenmore washer


On the top load models, you need to remove the washer's 3-sided cabinet and then the pump is secured by two clips to the motor.
To remove the cabinet, open the control panel up, then find the two retainer straps that hold the cabinet in place. Pop them out with a screwdriver and pull the cabinet back and up. The pump is in he center by the floor, you can't miss it...
