Default Washer makes clunking noise during wash cycle
Model Number: 11026752502   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


During the wash cycle, it makes a clunking noise - not a heavy clunking noise, but like gears are slipping. The agitator seems to be working ok so far.

I looked underneath it to see if something obvious might pop out, but it's pretty basic - just a cast iron transmission (I'm guessing) and an electric motor.

I was hoping I could get some suggestions here before I go tearing into it.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Can the top section of the agitator be turned either way? If so, you have bad agitator paws.

There are two parts to the agitator. The top-most part is about 3" deep, it' the part the fabric softener goes into. It spins and pops right off.

The second part is the agitator itself. Foot and a half maybe. I can spin that back and forth by hand when the machine is off.

Where are these paws and how tough are they to replace? I'm guessing I have to get to it from underneath.

Thanks for your reply, Rich.

OK - I think I figured out where they are. That top part pops off and they're under there. I'll get the parts and replace them.

Thanks

Ok, I'm figuring this out as I go along.

The agitator is a single piece (not including the fabric softener thingy). I think these paws or dogs are for the two-piece agitators and not the solution I'm looking for.

Could it be in the transmission and if so, should I just keep running it until it breaks altogether or should I rip it apart to find the problem? A guy down the street can get me a rebuilt transmission for around sixty bucks, but if it's doable, I might just try to replace whatever part is broken.

Thanks again.

Ok - got it fixed.

I mistakenly said earlier that the agitator was one piece, it was two (my wife gave me bad info - yeah, I can blame it on her ).

Anyway, picked up the dogs for six bucks and put them in. Took 10 minutes and all fixed.

Case closed.

Thanks for the help.
