Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Washer agitator does not move, washer does not spins, does drain the water without rotating the drum.
We had a problem with spining last month, replaced a switch and everything worked well, today I smell like rubber burning and washer stoped working
Sounds like you've already replaced your lid switch and now the washer stopped agitating and spinning, but WILL still drain water. If I'm understanding these symptoms correctly, these are common symptoms of a broken motor coupling. The burning rubber smell is another symptom as the coupler has a rubber bushing that can tears apart when the coupler breaks. There may also be a strange rattling noise associated with these symptoms too. The coupling is located between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) and this is what transfers the energy from the drive motor to drive the transmission, which makes the drum spin and agitate. It is common for this coupling to wear out, strip, or break over a period of time. This is a very inexpensive replacement part (usually $15 or less) and can be replaced easily by the average do-it-yourselfer with a little guidance. The following link gives you step-by-step instructions how:
Some of the orginal motor couplings that came from the manufacturer were totally made of plastic. Over a period of time (especially with heavy loads) the center shaft on the coupling would strip out and the coupler would free spin. The manufacturer came out with a new improved, longer life coupling with a steel grommet. The link provides you with the new part number and where you can order the part if you wish go online. If you do not wish to order from the website, take the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part they carry. I hope this helps you. If you require addtional assistance, please contact me and let me know.
