Question about Washing Machines
Sears / Kenmore top load, direct drive washers are made by Whirlpool.
Following is the Sears parts site for these washers with diagrams and parts lists.
From the main page you should also be able to link to their manuals site.
Following also is the Whirlpool Service Manual for these washers:
From my experience (I have one), these are solid machines without all of the electronic bells and whistles of the newer machines.
They are also VERY easy to fix if something goes wrong.
The main problems that I've seen are defective Lid Switches (it won't agitate nor spin unless the switch senses that the lid is down) an $18.00 part and worn/broken Motor Couplers, also very easy to replace.
