My washer makes a loud noise when it is stopping. My husband thinks it might be the brake because it happens when the spin is about done and getting ready to stop. Only had this washer for a few years.

The washer doesn't spin in rinse cycle. Coupler is good, drive block is also good. Washer makes loud screeching and grinding noise when in rinse & spin cycle. Please help! Thanks, Sam.

OK - we seem to be going in circles here. I wasn't asking about the lid switch. I know that works fine. I was asking if there's a way to bypass the water level switch so that I can test the motor. I also have been asking (and haven't gotten an answer yet), HOW does the motor transfer through to the basket in Spin Cycle? I keep asking questions and I keep getting answers that basically say to replace every part I ask about. That is NOT good diagnostic procedure ... and is quite expensive. IF the motor works, AND if the transmission works as designed, AND if the clutch and coupler are all in perfect shape ... WHAT NEXT!? HOW do I identify what part has FAILED to keep the machine from spinning the drum in spin cycle, when ALL ELSE WORKS!!??

Is there a way to CHECK the motor with it pulled from the washer (along with the transmission and drive shaft)? I figure there must be a sensor somewhere which will not allow the motor to start until the water is at the set level. Can this be bypassed (jumpered), so I can verify if the motor is running ... without having to re-install everything and fill it with water? That's a huge amount of work, and it still may be another part (i.e. clutch, tub drive, or transmission) causing the no-spin problem. The videos on how to remove the parts is great. There needs to be similar videos on how to IDENTIFY the problem through a series of tests. I'm quite sure in a repair shop they don't just go through replacing parts to find the problem. Right? Any help in this regard would be appreciated.

My Kenmore washer just stopped spinning. On Chat they suggested that I may need a new transmission. (?) However, in reading the function of the Basket Drive ... I'm beginning to think that maybe THIS is the problem, and not the transmission itself. How can I make sure it is one part or the other causing this problem? Symptom: I can hear the motor spinning, but the drum does NOT spin and the water does not drain.

The tabs on the basket drive shaft are gone. I'm going to order the basket drive and brake assembly part. The drive block looks fine. Are there other problems I should order parts for that might have caused those tabs to be worn away? They are completely gone and metal shavings are caked on top of the drive block. The problem was that the washer was vibrating badly and loudly at the end of spin cycle. Thanks for your time.

My washing machine works fine, but once the spin cycle ends, it stops hard, and makes a loud bang noise as if it hit a wall. So much that the machine jumps a little. The machine is about three years old.
