I have a Kenmore series 90 washing machine, Model 110.26902691. I changed the motor coupling last week and after being proud of my work, I was able to complete one cycle before I started to smell a burning...


Hi,

Considering the info you`ve provided, specific to the history of replacing the drive coupling. You stated that right after replacing the coupling it started to smoke or as you said "I started to smell a burning smell". Can you identify if it was electrical, or was it rubber/plastic ?

I`ve seen these coupling`s when not put on correctly start to rub against the motor or the transmission, you might want to double check your work with installing the coupling.

Aside from that it could possibly be the motor, but if it agitates and manages to advance through the wash & rinse cycle up to the spin, I`d be skeptical of a motor problem. You should check to make sure the lid switch is being fully closed, in the event it isn`t closed properly the unit will do everything except spin.

Hope that help`s. Good luck.

Loud clacking sound from the washing machine as spin cycle starts


Yes you either have a whirlpool or kenmore...since you didnt mention the make I guessed :) It sounds like you have a bad coupling, have included a link giving you instructions for replacing the coupling and a link where you can buy the coupling.

http://www.thisoldappliance.com/howto/Motor_Coupling.htm

p.s you don't actually have to remove the cabinet, the motor, pump and coupling can be accessed by tilting the machine back and wedging something under it so it does not fall on you while your working on it.

you can purchase the part from:

Hope this helps.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Replacing a coupling, motor and isolation (3 piece part) on a kenmore washing machine


you have to remove the case off the unit , remove the pump retaining clips, the motor, and IF THE MOTOR HAS A CAPASITOR ON THE RIGHT SIDE WITH 2 RED WIRES CONNECTED TO IT USE AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER TO SHORT OUT THE 2 THERMINALS ON THE CAPASITOR TO DISCHARGE IT IF YOU DONT SHORT OUT THE CAPASITOR IT COULD IN SOME CASES BE A DEADLY SHOCK, REMOVE THE WIRING CONNECTOR FROM THE MOTOR remove the motor retaining clips and the coupling is right in frount of where you removed the motor just be safe at all costs

Kenmore Super Capacity Washing Machine


If your washer is the one you have chosen a Whirlpool built kenmore unit than your washer doesnt have any bearing that fail, It could be the spin tube mounting block becoming stripped ( most common) or a clutch or brakes not releasing issue (not likely). Also make sure the machine is agitating it may just be filling with water and draining and making motor noises. In this case the motor coupling has broken. both the block and coupling are inexpensive parts and easy to install.

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)
