More information and model Number :popcorn:
I've run into a lot of these.  The ice maker makes a clicking noise when the fingers hit the ice cubes during a harvest and the gears click until the heater sets the cubes free.  I've tried reducing the water volume.  The only 'fix' I've found, per factory recommendation, is to replace the ice maker.  But...I've had the replacement unit do the same thing!!!  Any fixes you've come across that actually work?

Is there a ring of oil inside the cabinet at the bottom, under tranny? I know you said clutch was tight, but if theres oil like described then you've most likelygot a bad transmission and it easilly could of slung oil into the brake clutch, which would slip in spin with heavy loads. Best way to check a clutch is to throw a bunch of towels in spin and see if it leaves em wet. A bad clutch may do fine with small loads. As far rust being a go or no go, that's hard to call. The tub is no loner available for that model FYI...
Washer Repair / Re: Kenmore 592-49057 won't high spin

Hi JK,

I couldn't find any on the model# you provided. It looks like it's a samsung made kenmore, the part number you gave was samsung anyhow. Samsungs and LG are notorious for having issues in spin and, at least on LG's, the hall sensor is pretty common to go out. I'll go ahead and paste some links to how to check a hall sensor.Note however, that they were written for LG, so they may not be interchangeable, but I would bet they will give you an idea of whats going on.

But from what you described, it sounds like the hall sensor took a bad beating from all the shaking in spin, prob would be best to go ahead and replace it even if it "checks" good. I would also check the wiring harness to the sensor. It could have been damaged as well. I dont think they are too expensive, and it might be worth it to go ahead and replace it while you are in there.

Hope this helps,

Washer Repair / Looking for washer drain pan
« Last post by ameritech on July 19, 2017, 06:46:28 PM »
Can anybody tell me where to get a drain pan for a toploader that has a high enough lip to route the drain, instead of through the bottom? I had a moron moment and broke my customers when I was moving it  :oops:. Ive checked with lowes, home depot, local parts retailer, even online and cant seem to find one (at least from what i can tell in the pics).

If anyone has any suggestions send em my way.

Chit Chat / Re: Whirlpool Cabrio bearing replacement without tool?

Thanks for your input, mz3own.

Went ahead and ordered the tool. These machines are awful. I'm not at all impressed with their "durability". I'll be replacing bearings and shaft tomorrow when parts and tool arrive. I've read some excellent tutorials on this site and watched a couple of good videos about it. I'm not worried about getting the machine apart, as I've completely dismantled one. I do want to make sure I do the job right so I don't have complications later from putting this in  :-\

Thanks again for your response.
