Question about Kenmore 22622 Top Load Washer

Reply to Screeching noise and oil

Thanks for the info on the Kenmore washing machine leaking oil and making noise - you replied to my post a couple days ago. The machine is a Kenmore model 110.226221, and the gearcase part number is 3360629 from Sears. Is there another source that's cheaper than the $163 they advertise? And yes, I'd be interested in step-by-step directions for the replacement of this part.

Fischer & Paykel Excellence 6.5 1999 model Neclace has gone through wash and drain holes. Making terrible grinding noise. need instructions how to take off cover to find neclace.

Hi just read your posting.Now try this.Select a spin cycle and push the start button.Do you hear the noise straight away after the button is pushed or do you hear the noise later when the machine is starting to turn the bowl?The reason I ask you this is because as soon as you push the start button the drain pump will activate and then a couple of minutes later the bowl will start to turn.So if the noise starts straight away then the necklace is in your pump and if the noise starts later it is stuck to the bowl.Please reply with the additional information and I will guide you throe the removal of the necklace.Looking forward to your reply.

Oil is getting into wash water

Hi Bob just read your posting.I am afraid your gearbox is leaking oil into the water .This means to repair the machine your gearbox needs reconditioning or replacement and also the main shaft seal will need replacing.I am putting this posting as a clarification request because my brand of expertise is FISHER@PAYKEL but I have some experience with SPEED QUEEN and KLEENMAID,which are the same machine only different names.Posting this reply as a clarification request will still leave your posting up in the washing machine area for other experts to hopefully help you further.But I am 100% sure that your gearbox needs repairing.Please reply if you need further help or information from me.Good luck.<br />

Kenmore 70 series washing machine making screeching noise

If both things have something to do with one another. It sounds like a bad motor. When you removed the coupler, did you notice if the part that goes over the shafts might have been cracked. If one is, it will spin on the shaft. But the motor keeps coming up when I read your description.

Banging screeching noise with Kenmore front load washer

It appears your tub roller/guides has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Kenmore Washing Machine MOdel 22622100

If the sound is a grinding noise, this is usually a symptom of a gear case (transmission) going bad. However, it could also indicate a motor coupling that's starting to fail. If you look under the washer check for any drips or puddles of oil. If you find any, the transmission has begun leaking and needs to be replaced. If you find a black powdery looking substance, this is an indication of a motor coupling that is failing. I hope this may help you. Let me know what you find.
