"Ratcheting" noise in wash cycle only

During the wash cycle the machine makes a LOUD ratcheting sound. This is the only time it makes the sound and is not affected by different washing selections. The sound started as brief noise and has grown to a full time noise.

Any ideas?

Take a look at the hub of the agitator and see if it appears to be turning enough. It sounds to me like you may need a Agitator Repair Kit. To get you to the correct part we would need your exact model number.

The exact model is: Kenmore mod. 110. 21302010. A top loader and it does not have the standard agitator in the tub, just a small bump at the bottom. I spun the tub by hand this morning, it moved in both directions easily with no noise.

Tip the unit back to access the bottom of the machine, please look at the large pulley to see if it came loose.

Thanks, I will check that when I get home from work today.

Tim, What happened? How can I check if it it is really agitating? when I open the lid, the motor stops and I can not check if works. I am hearing a strange plastic noise when its washing. Everything normal during spinning.

Thanks

Now the sound is gone but burned smell appeared.

The problem was a very simple issue in the end. A bolt... One... fell out. However it's the bolt that holds the main pulley on. As the bolt backed itself out the pulley worked it's way down and this model has a plastic cage over it. The pulley began eating it's way through the cage--- that was the ratchet sound and the burning smell. I put the bolt back in with a new lock washer and it has worked fine ever since. Total cost was 3 cents for the washer.

The washer is a kenmore model number 110.26292693 and its a top loader. The washer doesn't agitate while washing. Theres a squeaky note coming from washer. Found the belt had fallen off. Would a fallen off belt cause the washer to act this way?

Tim, thanks so much. My washer, same model had that noise, we just adjusted the bolt and voila. Thank you guys.

Hello All, I am experiencing the same issue. However, I cannot seem to figure out how to remove the bolt to the pulley. The bolt and the nut just spin, so I can't loosen or tighten it. Any recommendations would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I just fixed my washing machine by adding a 1/16” thick washer under the nut that holds the large plastic pulley on. Steps to fix:

  1. Disconnect power, hoses, and drain hose.
  2. Drag the washer out and turn it upside down. It will leak a small amount of water on the floor. The drum will dislocate a little because it hangs, this will not harm anything it will reposition itself to the correct position once you turn the washing machine back right side up.
  3. Remove the plastic cover protecting the drive belt and drive pulleys.
  4. Remove the drive belt by rotating the large plastic pulley a little as you displace the belt.
  5. Grab the large plastic pulley and, holding it firmly with one hand use a wrench to remove the nut holding it on.
  6. Place a 1/16” thick washer over the now exposed threaded part, placing it on top of the plastic pulley and sandwiching it between the pulley and the nut you removed in the last step.
  7. Screw the nut back on tightly.
  8. Put the drive belt back on using the same method you used to remove it.
  9. Tip the washing machine back up onto its’ feet, reconnect all hoses, plug it in, and Bob’s your uncle.
