SOURCE: Kenmore wont agitate or spin

Mindurrs, your motor coupling has gone to the great beyond. Time for mourning has passed and now it must be replaced. The job takes about an hour and parts run about $10.00, ready? First, go to your local appliance parts retailer and purchase a coupling, part #285753. You'll need this for repairs. UNPLUG THE WASHER!!! Standing in front of the washer, you'll see two screws on either side of the control panel... remove these then flip the control panel over. Now, toward the right side, you'll see a wire harness that plugs into the top of the top panel, disconnect this. Now, on either side of the top panel, you'll see two brass colored clips. Take a screwdriver and poke it into the hole, use it as a pry bar. Pry the handle of the screwdriver toward the wall behind the washer, the clip will pop out. Now tilt the entire cabinet of the washer toward you to about a 45 degree angle then lift it out of there and set it aside out of the way for now. OK, now we're into the guts of the washer... Look below and in the center, you'll see the drain pump (it has 2 big hoses attached). Behind that, you'll see the motor... that's what you'll be taking off. On the right side of the motor, you'll see the electrical connections. Remove the long white one from the motor. (CAUTION!!! THIS NEXT STEP MUST BE DONE, OTHERWISE PERSONAL INJURY MAY RESULT!!!) You'll see a black round thing mounted to the motor on the right hand side, this is the capacitor. It has 2 red wires on it. (It's basically a 120 volt battery that is just waiting for you to touch it so it can shock you, badly) THIS MUST BE DISCHARGED (voltage drained off) BEFORE CONTINUING. Remove the 2 wires using insulated needle nose pliers. Now, discharge the cap by touching both terminals of the cap at the same time with your needle nose pliers. This will discharge the capacitor so it's safe to handle. Now, above and below the motor, you'll see 2 clips mounted on it, remove the screws that keep these clips in place then (with a flat head screwdriver) pry the clips off the motor. The motor and pump will drop out of there. Rotate the whole thing off to the left (with the hoses still attached to the pump). Now you can see the broken coupling (compare the old one and the new one). Pry the old pieces off the motor shaft and the transmission shaft and throw 'em away. Install the new coupling (notice the semi-triangular shape of the inside of the plastic coupling? I use my screwdriver handle... poke the handle into the coupling, place the coupling squarely on the shaft, then tap [don't BANG] it home with a hammer) and rebuild in the reverse order of dis-assembly! Sounds complicated, but it's not. I've done a thousand of these and it took me longer to type this than it would have for me to do it for you! And, for what it's worth, you have a good washer there. It's actually made by Whirlpool, and well worth the repair.

SOURCE: Agitator moves slowly on wash cycle/not at all on spin cycle

it sounds like the dogs are worn. try twisting the agitator post by hand,it should move freely in one direction then lock up going the other.its a pretty easy fix if they are.pry off the top of the agitator post off then remove the cap inside,there is a bolt that holds the post down.i'm pretty sure it's 7/16 in. once the bolt is loose,lift the whole agitator out of machine and with your hand inside post turn it upside downand let the dog holder slide out.watch how the dogs fit into the holder, replace with new dogs and reverse the removal process.
if the machine wont spin, check the lid switch. thats usually the cause of a no spin situation.other than that a wet vac is your best bet.hope that helps.

SOURCE: I hear a buzz sound for 5 seconds when compressor starts.

The grommet simply holds the start relay in place.  Unless it is torn, you won't need it.  Likely the start relay.  The buzzing is possibly the relay contacts on the start relay burning if the problem occurs when the compressor starts...although it could be the compressor making noise as well.  You might try to "hear it out".  The start relay gives a boost to the compressor by adding in another winding inside to 'kick' the compressor.  
If all you hear is the buzz, you might just wait a bit to see what fails!

SOURCE: kenmore elite won't agitate properly

Does the bottom of your agitator work correctly? We had the same problem if you pop the cap off the top of your agitator there is a cam in there with 3 dogs that engage the agitator causing it to spin. If the bottom part is agitating correctly then chances are the dogs in the cam assembly are shot. If the bottom is agitating correctly then it is very possible you have something stuck under the bottom section of the agitator. If this is the case remove the top cover (same as before it's just a lid that pops off) inside you will see a 1/2" square use a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 3" or 6" extension unscrew this piece remove the top section of the agitator then the bottom. Once the bottom is out check to make sure all is clear inside the washer. Reassemble in the reverse order making sure the lower section sits all the way down on the splines for the drive mechanism. If neither one of those solve the problem I would suspect you have an issue in the drive train of the washer.

I have a Kenmore (Whirlpool) HE Top loading washer model 1102613412. It works okay but it clicks during agitation when it gets to the end of the "swish" range.

Could be a "clutch" problem. It's a cheap part that regulates the agitator. It gets worn down over time. Google it for your model. I was ready to replace my washer but rescued it with a $10 part. You remove the top of the agitator and drop in a new clutch, which is a ring with four polypropylene balls attached.

Washing machine knocks and dims lights only during rinse cycle

Possible that the bearings are a suspect, if the machine seems to wobble around. Also if the load is high, does the noise go higher, if so check the suspension, check the mounting and the counter weights.

The printer makes a clicking sound when it is turn on, Sounds like one of the plastic gears is slipping? Thanks, Brad

It heard that sound before our HP laserjet model. The reason maybe is that the roller plastic drum was torn off due to volume printing. This needs technician to replace that parts and it is replaceable. Most of them are torn because of heat emitted by the printer.

Washing machine is making a clicking/ticking sound when it is agitating during wash cycle

This is a sign of strained agitator components that are about to be damaged or stripped. I recommend pulling the agitator and clutch. inspect each device for stripped components and uneven ware. replace the agitator and clutch if found to be faulty.

Check the transmission(gear box) for damage as well. fill with oil if needed.

Agitates loudly when in use

It souds to me that you might have some bad agitator dogs. To test this problem, grab the agitator and replicate its motion during operation. If it moves easily in both directions, or makes the sounds you're describing move ahead. If that test passes, unfotunatley, you might have a transmission or tub bumper problem. not too bad, but more involved.

Begin by taking the very tipy top of the agitator off. You'll see inside a plastic piece you can pull right out. Next you will need a 9/16 or 11mm socket with extention. Remove the bolt and pull the top half of the agitator out, tip it upside down to remove the dog carriage. See those four small plastic things? Those are them. They're very cheap and redily availible. Reassemble, and enjoy your laundry! Let me know how things go.

Both drum and agitator spin during wash cycle. Is this normal?

What is the age and model number of the washer? It could be as simple as a problem with a part inside the agitator or it could be a bad transmission. A complete model and serial number from the washer not the book.
