My ancient Kenmore Direct drive washer cuts off mid-cycle

14 January 2013 - 11:21 AM

My ancient Kenmore series 80 Ultra Heavy Duty Washing machine occasionally cuts off mid cycle and refuses to agitate or spin until I rotate the drum manually. Is this a transmission problem, clutch problem, or something else? The model no. is 82781800. I've checked the coupler and it works fine manually, but the problem persists. 


Any help would be appreciated.




Kenmore 70 series mod # 110.xxxxxx direct drive washer

02 June 2008 - 03:21 AM

Hey ya'll,

I'm working on a Kenmore Series 70 direct drive washer that makes a godawful noise when it gets to spin cycle. I checked the coupler (ok), bench tested the motor (spins like a champ). When i looked under the machine while it was trying to spin the clutch looked like it was trying to move the tub, but kept going back and forth with no result. Also found some greasy dirt with metal shavings on the top of the tranny housing. What do you think?


Goodman Furnace/AC Unit Mod#-PGB036075

31 May 2008 - 02:34 AM

My AC wasn't working - no fan, nothing, so I took a look at the control panel on the unit and checked to make sure i had power where it was supposed to go. Everything looked fine, so I checked out the circuit board and pulled the 5amp fuse out - blown! Great, so I replaced it and KABLOOEY! blown again. Then I did a really STUPID thing! I put a 15amp fuse in and the circuit board started to smoke :shock:. Little bubbles appeared on the chips. And still, Yes no cooling.

Can y'all help?
