In Topic: D/D Tranny knocking "What Part needed" ?

30 April 2014 - 02:17 PM

Brothers Scott and Willie speak the truth.


The direct drive trans tooling was getting very worn toward the end of its production.  For financial reasons (the VMW was being developed and the LEAP/Design 2000 being phased out due to energy star requirements) the tooling was not brought back into spec.  They continued to build trannys for current production and to stockpile service replacements.  


To compound the noise issues, the sheet metal gauge on the cab "wrapper" was cost reduced and is much thinner.  The base was also cost reduced.  This translates into a noisier machine.

Thanks Thirsty.


I agree most of these have some knock and I will let them go but some are so loud that I know if I sell it the machine a customer will be calling me back with a complaint of ."there is definitely something wrong", "get here and fix this" I have a machine here in my shop that's probably Last off the line and the knocking is quite loud. Looks like I'll have to set it aside and wait for an older washer that needs scrapping out for some other reason and use that tranny. Dontcha love progress!

In Topic: cross reference help needed MD# 592-491080

So I spent another couple hours looking this morning (I now have so much time into this machine that I think I have to fix it now) I'm pretty sure I have the correct part now.

Part number #DC97-14875B   almost the same part number as one I thought looked the same from an image but changed the A to a B,

$91.00 at my supplier

This was a tough one and I'd like to thank all the people who had a hand in trying to help.

Don't know where you got the 592-491080 as a model number but it seems incomplete and doesn't come up with anything close.


LOL, I knew I should have stressed that for sure I had the correct numbers.


Yuppers, That is exactly the correct model number even with the dash. I've taken to taking pics of the numbers now with my cell. No mistakes anymore. I'll add the serial number just in case that may be of some use.

Serial #Y02554AS800137T Date 2009 08

No way I'd go ahead and order just from a pic. Maybe a under $5.00 part I'd take a chance. Between those two pics I,m betting shaft size is different.


To Sho' Nuff Chozin, I don't have a Kenmore part number. Wish I did,

In Topic: MVWX700XW1 Maytag. Not enough water

28 March 2014 - 10:28 AM

An indication that they're using either too much or the wrong type of detergent.  Should be using no more than 2 tablespoons of HE detergent.  



LOL. That's my testing in my shop. I used just over 1 1/2 tbs of Tide HE soap "powder" It works great otherwise. I'm just going to go with recomendation to customers to not expect great results from the "normal" cycle. What I have to decide now is whether I want to clean this machine up for resale or scrap it for parts. Damb morality Lol

is that on the Normal cycle?, looks about average, most people that have these washers find better washing results on other cycles besides normal

Yes, That's on the normal cycle. As this is the clothes re-loaded you don't see all the soap that was left on top of the clothes after washing on normal. Anyway, I'm glad to know at least that this is to be expected with these machines. They simply don't do a good wash on normal. It did do much better using the "Bulky" load setting.

Thanks all who were involved in helping out on this.
