Stacked washer drum came off axis

Not able to use washer now because drum came off it's axis when I was washing sheets. THe drum now lays lopsided. Cannot be straightened. THe washer is a little over a year old. Purchased at Sears. They said it's not in warranty after a year. Are there any other warranties with Kenmore to cover this problem?

    I have the same problem with my Kenmore washer. The drum has come off axis. Any idea what the problem may be and what my options are?

    I am having the same trouble. I think we had an extremely off-balanced load that ran while we were out of the house. My partner manually lifted the basket and settled it back centrally. The thing is spinnig again, but not with clothes in it. When we add a load, it goes off axis again.

That would the user interface board (touch panel)behind the dash. Sorry, but not a cheap fix at all. Maybe search Ebay for the part, sometimes you can find it cheaper. Very expensive part and repair. Good Luck to you. Jim

Today (4/3/09) I got a letter from Sears. They will replace the electronic control board (you know, the F-51 business) for FREE, in warranty or not. Serial #s for the Bad Board begin: CS48 - CS52 or CT01-CT49. Call Sears at 800-847-9083. The voices of all of us have finally been heard! There is a class action attorney firm in San Francisco looking into a legal remedy.

It sounds from your description like the machine's tub bearing may have collapsed. If this is the case, the tub will be very noisy during operation.

Drum wont spin looks lopsided

The "Guides" around the drum are worn out or the bearing is bad, which usually causes it. Replace the bearing and guides. You Tube has many videos on these fix's. and there is a good chance your machine will have one to view.

The drum on my maytag stacked washer came loose. when it spins it shakes so bad it turns off. Is it worth repairing?

yes, sometimes the nut that holds everything down comes loose. remove softener dispenser from top of agitator, the nut is under it, make sure it is tight. the other thing could be one of the shocks that attach drum to machine housing broke, lay machine on its side to check this.either is inexpensive to fix

Dryer drum not rotating

Drill holes all the way through the drum. Use carrage bolts to reattach the Bearing block through the drum into the block. Use lock washer and or locktite.

Those clips are plastic and the top should just pop off with a little prying on the sides. However, if the drum is off keal, its probably because a balancing spring on the bottom has either broken, or somehow come off. you would need to take the front and sides off of the lower unit, and find the springs and make sure they are connected to the tab that receives them, protruding up from the bottom of the washer frame.. There is usually a plastic piece on it, that has what looks like "teeth" where the spring would set into. Its hard!! make sure all springs are in the same position (grooves) before putting the machine back together. Also remember not to overload the machine, nor wash very large items such as comforters. Once the damage is done by one comforter, you will have to go through this whole mess to fix it.
