I have an old kenmore 80 series washer that won't spin or agitate. It will fill, but then when it gets to the agitate cycle, all I hear is a hum for a few seconds and then nothing. I found a external ground stuffed in the back, but I don't have a good place to attach to. Can I use the dryer, or will a screw in a stud be enough? If this isn't the problem, please let me know.

** kenmore 80 series washer **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify your particular machine. What is needed is its *model number* ("80 series" isn't it) as written on the machine's model and serial number tag.

You can find tips for locating that identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** all I hear is a hum for a few seconds and then nothing. **

Can you tell where it's coming from?

** I found a external ground stuffed in the back, but I don't have a good place to attach to. Can I use the dryer? **

On the washer? If so, I do not think attaching it to the dryer would be within any electrical codes but check with a local electrician.

** or will a screw in a stud be enough? **

I wooden stud? That wouldn't do anything at all.

BTW. I have no idea why you would have found any kind of "external ground". The appliance should be grounded through its cord when plugged into a grounded wall outlet.
