Introdução

Here is a Kenmore 400 model 11029422801 with a clutch that was slipping. The washer went through all the programs but left the laundry soaking wet after the spin cycle. It sounded like it was spinning, but when we checked the drum while spinning, we noticed that it was not achieving full spinning speed. This was most evident on heavy loads.

    • With the cap removed, a 7/16 hex bolt becomes visible.

    • Use a socket wrench with 4 inch extension to remove the bolt.

    • The agitator bolt measures 5/16 X 1 inches, 24 thread size

    • Main parts of the assembly include

    • Drain pump

    • Motor

    • Transmission

    • This is a direct drive model. No belts but a motor coupler connects the motor to transmission. Check for any cracks etc.

    • Remove the wiring harness from the motor

    • Remove the wiring harness from the clip on the transmission

    • Drain lines from the drum and drain hose are connected to the pump with spring clamps.

    • Using a pair of pliers and squeezinge the opposite ends of the clamps together will loosen the clamp.

    • Here are the three bolts. They are 5/16 by 11/16 with a 1/2 inch hex head.

    • With the three bolts removed, pull the complete assembly out of the drum

    • With the assembly removed, the clutch is now completely visible.

    • It is not necessary to replace the whole clutch. For this repair only the clutch band needs to be replaced

    • Using a pair of pliers to compress the spring will loosen the clutch band.

    • Lift the clutch band out of the clutch housing

    • Clutch band removed. Replace with model specific part.

    our Kenmore 400 sometimes makes a loud humming noise and doesn’t spin. If I wiggle the agitator, it will resume spinning. Would you recommend changing out the clutch band?

    thank you for your insight!

Would this repair fix a 80 series Kenmore washer with same problem of no high-speed spinning

Larry Simonetta - Responder

Possibly but it depends on what is going on with it. This one spun just sluggish and not „forcefull“ enough. It pretty much stopped spinning with a full load because of the weak clutch

I'm a jack of all if I can get it out I can rebuild it im a maintenance man at chicken proscenium plant we got to fixs all of it

Ralph Lingelbach - Responder

I have had the parts to complete this repair for about a week now. Problem is, I cannot seem to get the transmission and shaft assembly to pull out and give me access to the clutch assembly for replacement. Any advice? Everything else is removed including the blots, wiring, motor, pump, everything… just can't get the transmission removed.

Kristina Lillie - Responder

You removed the bolts holding the transmission to the chassis? Check to make sure you got all of them. If everything on the bottom is removed, make sure that there is no issues on the top with the agitator etc.
