I have a Kenmore Front load wash machine Model 796.40441900. It started making a noise while spinning. I have checked all pump and hoses and all are clean. I replaced the bearings, spider/drum support, and rotor. Still have the same noise. I can spin the drum by hand with no noise at all, when powered off. The noise occurs when the power is on and the stator becomes energized to turn the rotor. It will turn the drum left and right (noisy) but not enter final spin.
At this point I am not sure what may be the culprit. I cannot figure out what is making the noise (a metallic clunking) as all the moving parts have been replaced.
