Hi guys! I am working on a TL VMW washer that has a slight buzz in agitate. It seems to only buzz in the counter clockwise direction. It sounds like plastic on metal. I replaced the trans, cam kit, wash plate, hub, and actuator. It still buzzes and it is not entirely consistent. I have a video of it but I can't post it here. Maybe I can get it up on Youtube.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

Ok, good video!

Its sounds like the plastic hub underneath the washplate, that's starting to strip out, OR the plastic splutch cam underneath the washer transmission pulley.

Here's the hub for your model, its located underneath the washplate:
W10528947 Hub


Watch this video below to remove it:


I'd first check your plastic hub underneath the washplate to see if the teeth are starting to grind down.

The hub has screws that hold it in place, you will see them once you remove the washplate.

Look at these photos below of the teeth grinded down to smooth.

Wait, I just remembered what that noise is, it's the splutch cam underneath that's gone bad.

Here is a video of the noise

There is another video here with the same noise and you can see the new splutch cam kit fixed it:

Here's the splutch cam kit for your model:
W10721967 Splutch Cam Kit


There is a Video included in the part link that shows how to remove it and replace it.

Your Kenmore is made by Whirlpool.
