no response from 1st post, probably too wordy....but new problems require a new post...

 



Kenmore Washer 110.81821100


Similar problems to many posters...
Washer originally wouldnt agitate, but would spin? After checking everything in the world, now it wont spin either. I reached in, and turned the tub (which is hard to do by the way...) in both directions, and it "caught", and agitated, but when it reached spin, it wouldnt spin, unless I turned it like a half turn, wherein it "caught" again and spun through the cycle. I finished that load, and tried it again, and when it reached the agitate cycle, it wouldnt agitate and there was a slight burnt wire smell. At this point, even turning it by hand wouldnt get it going. Tub was full of water, so I waited about 1/2 hr. went back, turned it to spin, gave it a turn, and at least got it to spin to get the water out.
Ive gotten down and looked, and there doesnt "appear" to be any oil coming out of the gearcase, and the motor coupler doesnt appear to be cracked or broken. Is this a dying motor, or possibly a clutch/transmision problem.

 

If i need to pay a few bucks for an answer, I dont have a problem w/ that...

Sorry we missed your first topic.

It's kind of a long shot based on your description, but it's worth checking the drive block. Details==> http://fixitnow.com/wp/2010/07/07/diagnosing-and-repairing-spin-and-agitate-problems-in-a-whirlpool-kenmore-direct-drive-washer/

If the drive block is okay, then you're looking at a bad transmission.

Thanks so much for your response.

The vid showed how to replace the drive block, but doesnt really say how to eyeball it to see if its the culprit.  I guess Im going to get down and see if the clutch is turning while its on spin, and if its turning,  that would narrow it down to the clutch, drive basket, or drive block, right?

Just wondering if theres anyway to look at, and determine if it needs to be replaced before shelling out any bucks.

Hello, my eyeballing friend. I can certainly appreciate that in the plethora of information available on the page that our effluvious host linked you to, that you would miss the definitive photo contained therein which illustrated how to assess the drive block. Here it is again for your viewing pleasure:
