Kenmore 70 series Model # 110-82878200

16 posts in this topic

I have replaced the pump due to a leak and the drive connector. It will fill and agitate in the wash cycle. but makes a clicking/clatter noise almost sounds like a  broken bearing race.  When it hits the rinse cycle, only motor hum. I can turn the dial in any position and only get the motor humming.

Bad tranny?

 

Thanks

You mean the noise is happening in the spin cycle instead of "rinse"cycle???

The clicking/clatter noise is happening in the wash cycle. I don't get anything but motor hum in all other cycles.

Recheck the coupler you installed between the motor and transmission, you might have split this tapping it onto one of the shafts.

Will do. Would this cause the motor to bind? That seems to be what's happening.

Unclip the pump, pull it off the motor and run it again to see if it still binds.

Yep, still binds without the pump attached.

Now unclip the motor from the transmission and run it.

Re-tested with motor loose. Motor runs noisy, then locks up. This motor is not rebuildable is it?
