Default Noise at the Begining of the Spin Cycle
Model Number: 100.26912691   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

I was told that our washer was making a noise but I didn't get a chance to find out what kind of noise and during what part of the wash cycle. (I had to dive in instead.)

I took the washer appart to see if the problem was obvious but all I found was a somewhat loose noise-dampening gasket (the thingy that goes over the brake housing and alot of dust and crud. So I cleaned out the dust and crud as best I could and generally inspected the unit. I wasn't able to loosen the spanner nut however, because I had no spanner but I managed to clean everything else and put the machine back together.

But... now the machine makes a noise at the begining of the spin cycle which goes away when the machine gets up to speed. Do you think it's worth getting a spanner to get at the inner and outer tubs of the machine? Perhaps some part(s) associated with this part of the washer have needed replacing all along.

I am thinking the problem is that the brakes are not releasing entirely at the begnning and that is the noise you hear. It could also be a problem in the transmission.

You may want to try replacing the clutch and brake cam, that may fix things.

Okay, I'll try those suggestions but first I need to get a spanner nut wrench. Thanks!

Sounds good. You can replace the clutch and brake cam without the special wrench.

I did actually wind up buying the wrench which turned out to be a good thing given the overall dirt and crud lodged in the machine in general. When I accessed the basket and out tub, they both had to be cleaned and there was corrosion at the base of the underside of the basket that had to be dealt with.

Along with all of that, the lock ring was corroded and tub washer wasn't looking so hot either. (I ordered replacements for those.)

Next, I accessed the Basket Drive and Brake Assembly and found that there was such a build up of crud on the shaft of the Basket Drive... that I had to use a rubber mallet just to get it out of the Tub Support tube. Once I did, I was able to really see the ring of hardened crud on the shaft. (I have ordered a new Basket Drive... unit because I could not remove the crud.)

So... basically the machine needed a good cleaning and replacement of some inexpensive parts with the exception of the Basket Drive. Once the part come in and I put every thing back together, I'll post an update as to whether all this solved the original problem.

Wow, thanks for the update. I have taken apart washers a lot older than this one and have not had this kind of problem with crud buildup

Hope the cleaning solves your problem. Good luck and let us know.

Oops, I forgot to mention that the four lint catching thingys had been removed! And I'm guessing that that may have played a roll in the excessive build up of crud. I've only been at this residence for 1.5 years and do not know the history of the machine or why anyone would remove those four lint catchers. (Needless to say, I've ordered those as well.)

Okay, that explains a lot. Also this machine probably a lot older than you think, and being in the residence before you means it probably did get lots of crud.
