Kenmore Washer 70 Series - noise at the end of the spin cycles
Posted 04 May 2005 - 04:13 AM
In my situation, the noise is only happening at the end of the spin cycle. I appears to make noise when power is cut to the spin cycle. In essence, the brakes are applied. That's why Samurai thought my problem was with the brake cam.
And since I found a "paste" of metal filings around the drive block, that sure looks like the solution to the problem. I'm hoping a new one will fix the problem for good. But frankly, I suspect the problem will reoccur after a year or so. (which equates to *after* a normal warranty period runs out!!)
I wonder if writing a letter to Sears would do any good? Maybe we should start a letter writing campaign and a class action lawsuit. No, forget about that. The lawyers will make millions and you and I will get $20 off the next washer. No thanks!

All of this depends on the amount of time I have before the wife comes home with a new washer!
Keep in touch, thanks.

I coincidentally have the same problem which has reared it's ugly head :shock: within the last 24 hours on my Kenmore 70 series dual action but the tub turns when lid is open or closed.
During spin cycle I get a noise which sounds like the agitator tub splines may have stripped partially , I get a grinding noise only sporadically during the spin cycle. Someone please tell me how to get off the agitator tub! I have pulled with all my might from every side imaginable, what is the magic key oh honorable masters! That will open Pandora's box of problems but at this point I don't know what I am dealing with as the tub basket wont budge !!

How did you determine the transmission was the problem? Was the drive block ok? Mine has a bunch of metal filings all around it.
What model do you have?
How old is it?

Since the other guy in this thread replaced the transmission and that seemed to do the trick for him, I'm going to live with it and let it rock and roll till it dies. I have spent enough time on it trying to fix the problem and not getting anywhere.
And I'm not paying someone to fix a washer that was defective in the first place! :poison:
SEARS - Take this!! :rocketman: Build a better product!
