How to determine if the transmission is bad in a Kenmore-Frigidaire top loading washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 20 March 2012 · 1,570 views

Kenmore Frigidaire transmission washer test
This machine could be a stand-alone washer or part of a stack unit, doesn't matter 'cuz it's the same washer. If it has a Kenmore label on it, the model number prefix will be 417.

A common symptom of a bad transmission is that it won't agitate. Still spins and drains, motor runs, the agitator just won't move during the agitate cycle.

Grand Master kdog gives us the Quick n Dirty™ for checking the transmssion:

Remove the front panel and watch while it agitates - is the belt turning the transmission pulley ? If so, remove agitator and see if shaft is rotating - if not, transmission is bad.


And if the transmission turns out the be bad, here's your shopping list (click the pictures to buy 'em):
