Question

Kenmore washer 110.26742500 – very loud sound after filling and during spin, clothes are much wetter than usual, have to wring out after washing

Washer is 7 years old, was in house when I purchased 3 years ago. Have not had any issues until now. Tried a small load of light clothes to make sure it was not due to overloading with same results.

      Hello KASO2019,
      Based on you symptom and details, the motor coupler linking the motor to the gear case could be partially stripped. In order to accesss and check the motor coupler, the washer cabinet must be taken off and the pump and motor. If you do not feel confident in repairing this yourself, call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a rapair appoinment.
