Kenmore Washer Not Agitating/Spinning


Our Kenmore washer (70 Series, Model 22722100) recently stopped agitating and spinning. It fills up OK, and then when it should agitate or spin, there's a hum like the motor has seized up.

Is there much to replacing the motor on this model?

Before you get all agitated about replacing motor read this. You may have something as simple as loose belt.

Read especially section 2-5 http://www.appliancerepair.net/washi...-repair-2.html

Specific to Kenmore, read everything thru section 3-3 http://www.appliancerepair.net/washi...-repair-3.html

that washer would not have a belt. You probably have a broken motor coupler.
