Kenmore washer does not agitate or spin but does drain ok. Hear constant clicking sound in both modes (as if plastic gears are stripped). Please advise cause. Also, I am pretty handy so I would like to know if this sounds like something I can repair?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi,

Kenmore is made by several different companies....model# is ?

"90 Series" isn't it ;)

Some model# helps.

If your washer turns out to be a WLP made direct drive Kenmore, the motor couple may be broken. Some info on that....

That is a Whirlpool built 'direct drive' model and as Jeff said, a broken drive coupling is a common case of such a symptom.

You can read about that job at the following link:

I thank you for this posting. Our washer wonuld not agitate not spin but would drain and clicking noise. We read this post and VoiLa!! ;-) My husband carefully got the cabinet off (found a step by step photo site of different brand but got the jest)and sure enough the 3 piece part was broken into pieces. Good thing they brake like this because otherwise the motor would have burnt up!! However the new part (motor coupling) has been improved to be a bit stronger but will still brake when need be. My washer runs great!! We did it. Thanks to you all.
