I have a kenmore 700 series top-loader washing machine. Its about 8 years old but looks pretty new. My knob turns fine but the housing enclosure for the number does not turn with the knob. I have to...


The burnt plastic smell is probably the belt that drives the agitator. There may be something stuck (wrapped) around the shaft under the agitator that tightens the gears so the belt just slips and heats up. Remove the agitator and make sure the shaft is clear. also if it is belt and gear driven, check the gears. This means removing a panel or turning the unit sideways to inspect from below. The hum is the motor either not turning or turning with the belt too tight.
Hope this helps...

Kenmore Washing Machine won't agitate, spin, or drain


It sounds like the motor needs to be replaced, you can drain the water by taking the drain hose from the drain and lowering down water will drain.

Washer won't spin or agitate


hi, Does the water drain out in the spin cycle? Sounds like the coupler might be bad. Is this a top load machine? Asking questions so I can be clear and give you better info on your question.
Please let me know.

Thanks

if the motor runs than it is just a belt,not a big deal to install
be carefull because the new ones are direct gear connect and it is a bit harder to place the warn off plastic gears

Hi There,
Check to see that the belt is being driven by the motor when it goes into the wash cycle. Let me know if this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

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.
