Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
My wife said it started making clunking sounds,02f error. I found that the front of the inner tub moves up and down about an inch. It did not fully drain. Checked the drain strainer underneath and it was chock full of what looked like ground up particles. Some long thin plastic strips also and a couple of these strips around front lip of inner tub. No water was leaking out onto the floor. Whatever holds the front of the inner tub up is no longer there.
What you have is called spider failure. This is the three spokes that connect the basket to the spindle. The plastic is shavings of your tub.You need to get the rear of the tub replaced and the basket replaced.
