Kenmore washer 110.24862300 HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

OUR WASHER STARTED MAKING MORE NOISE THAN USUAL WHEN AGITATING AND THE AGITATOR APPEARED TO TURN MAYBE 50% OF THE TIMES IT TRIED (LIKE IT WAS SLIPPING). NOBODY LISTENED TO MEAN WHEN I TOLD THEM TO TAKE IT EASY ON THE MACHINE UNTIL I HAD A CHANCE TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND AFTER ABOUT A  WEEK IT STOPPED AGITATING AND SPINNING ALL TOGETHER. I TOOK IT APART AND DISCOVERED THE MOTOR COUPLING BROKE AND THE AGITATOR DOGS NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. SO I BOUGHT BOTH REPLACEMENTS AND INSTALLED THEM. HOWEVER THE MACHINE STILL ISN'T WORKING CORRECTLY. IT FILLS AND AGITATES JUST FINE. WHEN IT GETS TO WHERE IT SHOULD BE DRAINING AND SPINNING, IT DRAINS AND THE TUB SPINS BUT THE AGITATOR DOESN'T TURN IN  ROTATION ALONG WITH THE BASKET. INSTEAD IT TURNS AS IF IT'S AGITATING AND THERE'S A LOUD GRINDING NOISE. I'VE TRIED SEARCHING THE INTERNET BUT AFTER THREE STRAIGHT DAYS OF WORKING ON IT I'M STILL AT A LOSS FOR A SOLUTION. I LITERALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING WRONG OR WHERE TO GO FROM HERE. I'D APPRECIATE ANY ASSISTANCE SOMEONE COULD OFFER. THANK YOU.

Agreed , sorry 😐.     BUT you really need to fix it or hire it fixed .  That washer fixed is better than 99% of the new ones you could buy !

If the lid isn't rusty it's definitely worth fixing. We love that machine.

I would still put a new lid on and keep it going.

I tell people that have one of these to keep putting money into it as long as parts are available.

NOW WHEN YOU SAY TRANSMISSION ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE WASHER GEAR CASE?

Its specifically a plastic ramp gear in the tranny that wont shift it all the way our of agitation and it grinds another metal gear. If the gear is ok then you can just replace the ramp.  But.... those parts and labor if your not handy, will cost you as much as a tranny whole.
