Question about Kenmore 22642 Top Load Washer
When the machine gets to the spin cycle it wobbles around like its off its axis. It leans to one side. I have to hold it so it will spin properly. I'm sure its lop sided when it agitates too, because there is water on the floor. Not a whole lot.
Elizabeth, it sound like a counter-weight spring issue. Spring's function is to keep tub's balance. Open the machine and look for the spring, it should be connected between tub's bottom to the machine's bottom. It seems that the spring either "run away" from its place or was broken. In any case, repair cost for it very cheap. Good luck !!
