    Replaced the supension springs, and now it "clanks" when in rinse cycle, then later the agitator moves really slow in the rinse cycle

Often times, the coupling is not fitted completely, and the excess pressure is binding the motor or gearbox up

Not a guaranteed solution, but something to check

reopen the case and motor, and use a dowel and hammer to ensure the spiders are fully pressed onto the gearbox and motor shafts

I have a Kenmore series 70 washer that stopped working and when I turn it on it makes a loud clicking noise. Any suggestions on what this might be. Thanks!!


Hi,
This is most likely a motor coupler. Set to spin see if it drains... If it drains then it is the motor coupler.
I hope this helps...If I can do anything else to help please let me know.

Kenmore 70 series will not drain or spin


It sounds like the lid switch. If it ws the coupler the water would drain. Check to see if the lid switch is clicking when you put the lid down. replace the lid switch. You have a great washer. Fairly cheap fix.

When this machine is not spinning, the water should still be able to drain, as the motor drives the pump on the same shaft as the coupler for the tranny. Set to the spin setting and depress the lid switch, if the water still does not drain, you may have something stuck in your pump, which would also lock the motor shaft and not allow it to spin or agitate. If the water does drain, check the motor coupler, which is located between the motor and transmission, if broken, the motor will run but there is no drive to the transmission. Hope this helps...

I have a kenmore 70 series washer,the machine won't spin. I hear the clutch but it's not engaging. The pump to remove the water seems to be operating but the tub just won't spin and makes a loud noise.


The loud noise (sounds like rattling or grinding) is the motor coupler. It's between the motor and the transmission. This part takes the place of the belt, and costs about $20.00.

Good luck!
