Kenmore 90 Series Washer 110-92491210
Posted 17 June 2006 - 10:01 AM
The washer is currently fully functional but It's just a matter of time before "what-ever it is" breaks. I'm trying to determine the "what-ever it is" portion. :)
There's a loud noise (squealing) that occurs when the washer begins to agitate. The noise continues through out the agitating cycle and during the spinning cycle.
Can you help me diagnose this problem? The noise is getting louder.
It's a Kenmore Direct-Drive model

When the washer is filling up there's no noise but once it's completly filled up with water and right when it begins to agitate is when the noise starts.
While the water drains there's no noise, but once it begins to spin the noise is present again.
I'm asuming it's not the pump. But what else can it be? Drive Coupler? Motor?
I don't think the dog-ears would have anything to do with it... would it?

I think it's time to replace the motor coupler. Is there anything else I should check?
Once I receive my part, is there anything else I should verify? Free moving tranny ? Etc?

The bearings looked fine on the motor and there was no play on the shafts.

And, just for grins, check that drive block:
