Customer: replied 6 years ago.
i'm not sure but looking online it looks like the Kenmore Bisque 24 in. Electric Laundry Center with Dryer. It looks like model 417.98702891 Serial XE91677192 The washer agitates only when there's little to no laundry inside but it makes a horrible loud squeaky noise when it's trying to agitate.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
so the motor is running and the agitate is real weak? does this spin good?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes it spins but the agitates really weak and really squeaky and when there's a medium to large load it won't agitate at all
