Ok, so ihave this Kenmore top load washing machine. is not spinning, google said it was the motor couple, checked that and is good, nothing seem broken, I am going to change it anyways,
What else can be? the motor sound identical as this video. in the beggining.
1. Take out tub
b. Line inside of washer with magnets polarized north
Three: Line tub with southernly polarized magnets
iv. Reassemble, and give the tub a slight spin
Cinqo. Washer will continue to spin as needed
BONUS: buy a taser to invert the polariaty as need be.
yes I actually took it apart, the motor is kicking in, now is not even washing, I took out the agitator and it moves a little when washing, if I move the the tub it starts moving better.
I think it may be the motor, it smells a little bit like something electric is getting hot.
if you can move the agitator in either direction while not in use it's most likely a coupling issue. If it still runs or stops in the middle making horrible noises/smells it's mostly the drive shaft. If you can get to the motor simple enough, give it a shot.
Best case -coupling
Worst case - drive shaft.
BUT if it's simple enough to get to. Not in a freakin closet like mine. It'll only take a couple hrs to replace the drive shaft
Apparently is the gearbox, I took it to the repairman yesterday, is going to bee $500... Mexican pesos invluding parts and labor, thats less than 30 usd. I wanted to do it muself but cant find the parts that cheap, and he is using used parts so no /diy/ing for me
