After completing a cycle a series of real loud thumping noises occur.This has been going on for quite a while.Ive head this on other machines of same make and model.It happens when the drum is slowing down.
Answer Joe, A thumping noise at the end of and sometimes at the start of the spin cycle is usually an issue with the "drive block" 389140 turning or spinning on the basket drive tube assembly 285792. You'll need to remove the agitator, tub cover, spanner nut and spin tub. You'll need to check the "tabs" on the top of the basket drive tube, if the tabs are worn or rounded off you may need to replace the drive tube.
My washer want spin after replacing clutch assembly, and putting another transmission.
Answer Hello Robert. If the unit runs, and the coupling is good, then you either have a bad drive tube or the drive block is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
The washer stopped washing and there was a smell of smoke and the left side of the washer got warm, after that the agitator will not turn and the motor only hums when it is turned on.
You will want to check to make sure that the pump on the unit is not locked up. Check to make sure that the pulley spins freely. If not then replace the pump. Also check to make sure that the thrust bearing is not locked up. Turn in one direction it should release the brake and the other it will just spin. You will also want to check the belt for wear.
Washer makes a loud rumbling sound during the spin cycle. Seems to ramp up then rumble to a stop then start again during the spin cycle.
Answer Washer Bob,
You will want to check the agitator to make sure that it is not loose. Also check the hub nut that holds the inner tub in place is not loose. Check your springs to make sure that they have not popped loose and that they are good.
If we c./o'd the Clutch assembly & the Lid Switch & still the Drum won't spin while in the Spin Cycle, what else could be the reason why the washer won't spin? I noticed that the Agitater is
working fine, and the pump is working good too!

You would want to check the air dome hose and air dome to make sure that they are not clogged. If the unit does not sense the water level reset then it will cause the unit to not drain. If this checks ok then it sounds like a problem with the neutral drain hanging up. This is part of the transmission assembly.
Washing machine stopped agitating and spinning still drains water.
Answer Hello Pat. Based on the information you provided, you need to check the motor coupling 285753A and see if it is bad in the unit.
I have a Kenmore 90 Series washing machine. It does drain. I already replaced the coupler, so that is not the problem. 1. I am wondering if the clutch needs to be replaced. 2. If the clutch needs to be replaced, how do I remove the agitator. I watched your video on You Tube, and it was excellent! However, on my washing machine, there no bolt. Once the agitator cap is removed, I can see where the agitator is held in place by a pin, that lies flush.
Answer DJ, In your case, you have a nylon composite retainer and spring 3946995 3946995, that is in the center of the agitator "dog and cam" assembly. You may find it easier to use a pair of "needle nose" or "slip joint" pliers and grasp the retainer by the square portion of the assembly at the bottom, and turn the retaine clockwise to loosen and remove. Once the retainer dogs and cam are removed, you'll need a "deep set" 7/16 in. socket to remove the agitator bolt and the agitator.
