Serial number on washing machine does not match what can I do

Usually serial numbers are found on doors which can sometimes be swapped out and replaced by similar make from another machine.chances are you just need the model and make as belts are quite universal within the makers model range.

It could be that the bearings that have gone. This is not an easy fix but you can try by searching this site (fixya) for solutions regarding change of bearings for your brand of machines. Not impossible. The next problem which is possible is that the spider arm is broken. This arm is inside the drum and cannot be seen unless you open up the drum, most likely it is the arm. For the bearings it could be a grinding noise, but the tub will turn if turned by hand. I am giving you suggestions, not solutions. While searching this site type out your make and model number of the machine. While dismantling note which part goes where for re-fitting.

Kenmore front loading spin noise small vibration

It is probably the bearings on the rear of the wash tub. There have been multiple issues with the bearings. Try rplacing the bearings and the drive belt. I also have a 417 that I've had for almost 10 years.. I've not have a problem yet but it is slightly louder on spinning than it was when it was new. I did some research and found out about the bearings.

Washin Machine Spinning Problem

The main tub bearing is stuffed, thus the noise. The spindle becomes loose and the belt rides off. Bearings can be replaced.
Hope that helps.

Kenmore top-loading washer won't spin

take cabinet off, from the front, control panel first, then lay on back and take water pump off then motor off and you will see where the couple goes on. Pretty simple job how ever you may be missing some transmission clutch plates that will make it grab and stop with a bang like that.

Washing machine belt won't move

You probably have bad spin tube bearings. Look above transmission for a water leak or evidence of one.
