Kenmore 11020722990, ck2220123. Water fills, no agitate, water drains and it
spins as indicted by the timer.
Pulled the agitator. Dawgs look OK. Pulled the cover off. Pulled the motor
and the direct drive three-legged forks and the rubber bushing that goes
between them are all in good shape. Put motor back on. Pulled water pump off
back of motor. Motor not turning when in agitate cycle. Spins like a mother
in spin cycle. While in agitate mode I manually turned the motor shaft a
couple of times and it started agitating. I stopped the timer and tried it
again. Same thing, no agitation until I manually turned the motor shaft a
couple of times and then it took off.
Replaced the start capacitor. Still not agitating on its own. It will start
agitating if I spin the motor's shaft by hand.
I suspect that the motor is bad, but at $145 I'd like to make sure before I
drop a dime.
