Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Kemore washer MD#24902200

Washer will not spin with load in unless you give the clothes a shove and then it catches and spins okay. However it will spin when tub is empty. The washer is 6 yrs old and other than the spin cycle it works great.

    I have the same problem. I took the outer case off, and there is oil puddled on the floor, the outer case of the gearbox has oil on it, and there is a spray pattern on the outer case. I plan on replacing the coupler, gearcase and clutch. What do you think about doing that?

This problem can be attributed to any one of the following items:

1. Worn Clutch/Brake assembly.
2. Gearcase (transmission) starting to go bad.
3. Basket Drive assembly worn or loose.

The more common problem is a worn clutch assembly, but you can't always be sure. If the gearcase fails, a common tell tale sign is a light colored oil leaking from it. You will notice puddles under the washer and/or spray pattern marks along the interior walls of the casing. Sometimes these two problems are interrelated as oil leaking from the gearcase can cause the clutch or brake to slip.

The following link explains how to replace the gearcase assembly:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

I'm not saying you have a bad gearcase at this point, but include this link because it gives information on how to remove the clutch/brake assembly. If you go to searspartdirect.com and type in your model number as "110.24902200" there are some very helpful drawings under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading. The gearcase is listed as item 9, the entire clutch/brake assembly is listed as item 5. The Basket Drive is listed as item 1.

This problem can often be hard to diagnose as any one of these components mentioned can cause a slow spin problem. I would recommend you remove the outer casing and do a visual inspection of the gearcase and clutch assembly (under the wash tub), first. Let me know what you find. I hope this gives you some guidance.

PS A basket drive failure will require you to remove the wash tub to replace. Since the basket drive penetrates through the bottom of the wash tub, it is recommended that you also replace the wash tub seal. Let me know what your preliminary findings are before we touch on this topic.

Won't spin fast when fully loaded


You may have a weak clutch. If you can stop the washer during spin by hand, that's what it is.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer will not spin...


I would say you have a burnt out clutch. did you over load it with a quilt or comforter?

Time to consider a new washing machine, unless its under warranty I would recommend replacing the washer vs. fixing it.

Whirlpool doesnt build them like they use to!
