Clicking Washer
« on: January 17, 2013, 12:06:33 AM »
Kenmore, 110.42822202, makes a clicking sound when turning counter-clockwise.  It doesn't make the noise when turning clockwise.  I think I know what's wrong but want to get other opinions.

Broken tub support, spider arm?

Is the video of it just at the end of the spin cycle?

I spun it by hand with my phone inside the tub.

It could be anything. Have you had a chance to take the cover off the back and inspect everything?

I checked the pulley and it's tight.  The inner basket has no play at all.  I think it's a cracked arm on the tub support. I don't usually see bad spiders until there way worse than this.  The basket and spider have a lifetime warranty but I want to be sure before I turn her over to Sears.
