Belt for Kenmore 92284800 Washer?

Was told the belt needed replaced in a Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 80 washing machine. Model number is 92284800. I can't find any reference to a belt in the parts sheet. Is there a belt?

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://beta.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieveModelDetails.pd?modelNumber=11092284800&productCategoryId=0153200&brandId=0582&searchedModel=92284800&blt=06


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

NOTE: THIS MODEL NUMBER DOES NOT USE A BELT.

Look in the section for the motor, pump gearcase and you'll see the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

I have an old kenmore washer, on which I cannot find the model number. It needs a new drive belt. The only information that I have is that it is marked as a Kenmore Heavy Duty 80, and inside the door is...


Go to a local Sears or Whirlpool store and tell them you have an old "belt drive" Kenmore washer that needs a new belt. All of these were built by Whirlpool Corporation and I believe used a common belt.

Good luck.

Kenmore top load hqavy duty 80 series model 82980120 - how does one get to the drive belt. Washer motor hums but no action any cycle.


Your complete model number including the first 3 numbers , is needed to help you get to the coupling . The coupling , is the piece ( pt # 285753 ) which connects the motor to the transmission . When this piece breaks , the motor will run , but no machine action , except for water drain . Even spin , will not work , yet , you will hear the motor running .

Kenmore 80 Series draining problem


Check the following before replacing the timer.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Changing the belt is not a big job, but you will have to lie on your stomach for a while. You will need to loosen the bolts which hold whatever is used to tension the belt - the pump, the motor, etc.--- it should be apparent when you look at the entire setup. "Buy a new washer" sounds like a Sears solution.
