Kenmore Direct Drive Washer

I have a, I don't know, 15 year old Kenmore Direct Drive Washer.

A year ago I replaced the transmission to keep it going.

Model 110 20702 991

Last night walk into laundry room to find that my towels were not spun, on the second spin. Just full of water. Tried to manually spin myself, made a HUMMING sound. HUMMMMMMM. HUMMMMMMMMM. Filling with more water didn't seem to work either.

Unplugged washer. 2 Hours Later, I got about 3/4 of the water out as it spun with the hum and then quit.

I don't think its the transmission again since it now makes ZERO sound when you try to spin. It will fill with water now though. The lid switch can't be the culprit as I've replaced it regularly so I know how to temporarily make it work, etc. Plus it wouldn't have been causing the humming last night.

What could it be? Should I try the electric motor?

Thanks!!

Does it agitate? If not and it just hums in agitate and spin sounds like something stuck in water pump. Unclip water pump and pull off motor shaft, (leave hoses on) Try it in spin how. If works you have a sock stuck. 90% of times will not be able to get it out and will need a pump.

Thanks. Now it stopped even humming though.

I will check for a sock. I did order a pump and a motor so the order would be started should I need it. The pump is on its way already.

Thanks so much! I just hope I haven't overlooked other parts it might be. Great forum! I will keep you updated.

Should not need a motor. Very seldom motors go bad.
