Hi,

What is the model number of your washer?
You can find the full model number on the model/serial number tag located on the washer.



Sears/Kenmore model number start with three digits and ends with eight.

For example, Model # 123.12345678
Hope you find our website helpful.

Whats it do during the spin cycle?

Can you hear the motor running during the spin cycle?

Here is a guide to help you check the motor coupling.
