My washer started squealing as soon as the wash cycle started. Everything through the cycle works fine except for the squeal.
Answer Hello Thomas,
Sounds like you have a foreign object in the drain pump 3363394. Sometimes you can get lucky and get the item out, but with the pump being made of plastic, the chances of no damage being done to the pump is rather slim.
Can I get a copy of the wiring diagram?
Answer Hello. Sorry, but Kenmore does not offer their information. You should have a copy of the wiring diagram somewhere on the unit. Look inside the control panel of the unit. Thank you.
Washer stopped during spin cycle. It makes a loud noise and spin cycle doesn't work. What can be the problem? How do I troubleshoot that, and how do I fix it ?
Answer Hello Scott. You will need to check and see if the clutch 8299642 is bad or broke on the unit. If so, it will prevent the unit from spinning. Also, check the brake shoes.
