Question about Washing Machines
Kenmore 70 series (video above) top-load direct drive washer will not run spin cycle, but moves in 1/4 inch increments combined with loud grinding-type noise. It washes fine, it drains fine, I tested the motor independently and it works fine. I tried testing the brake underneath and it seems to release when I turn it manually, so I don't think that's the problem either. Could it be the gear box? The clutch? Is there any way to test these independently? Any other suggestions? Any help is very much appreciated!!
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
