    Kenmore Elite Washer (Model#110.82873120) Spin Probs
    I have the Kenmore Elite King Size Washer, Model#110.82873120. Last night it quit working on the "Spin" cycle. I can still hear and feel the cycle operating, but there is a "clicking" that goes on and the agitator doesn't spin, nor does it agitate during the cycle. The draining mechanism continues to operate as well.

    Any thoughts on how I can fix this? Will it require a repair man? I have pulled the washer out from the wall and would like to open up the back, but want to find out if it is even worth it before I get knee deep into this.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Sounds like the motor coupling between the motor and transmission,an $11 part that takes about 45 minutes to change ,if you are experienced.It is accessed from the bottom of the washer.If you see black rubber shavings/pieces under the washer,this is definitely your problem.An EZ fix for an experienced repair man.And a very common problem with all of the newer direct drive washers.

    I have a Kenmore Elite washer. Model 11022994100, S/N CL 1902301

    It started making a loud ratcheting noise after the spin cycle and continues until the tub stops spinning.
    It appears to wash and go through the wash cycles OK. Problem is the loud noise when the tub is slowing down after the spin cycles.
    I am mechanical inclined. What do I need to do to fix it?

    That sounds like the motor coupling is broke as it still drains. It's located underneath the washer pretty easy to spot, Its actually about a 20$ part depends on where you get it. Also easy to fix I went on and typed in how to change a motor coupling on ________ type of washer. Easy P-easy, Hope this helps.
