Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer
On the spin cycle the machine makes a terrible noise and shakes the machine. It usually does shake on the spin cycle but this is a loud
bearing noise. If I open the lid and balance the basket - it helps. Someone told me this machine has no belts and says it sounds like a clutch going out. Is this machine worth placing a service call on it? I bought in 1992.
These machines are good washers. If you rearrange the load and that does not help, the washer not be level.This washer if it is the one I think it is, it does have a belt very seldom do the clutches go out unless you you maybe do50 loads a day. my guess is that it is not level and you will need a short level and place it on the front edge of the washer and see side to side then on the right or left side front to back . Most of these are equipped with self levelers. Put your foot in front of the washer at the base pull forward on back to lift the rear feet off the floor about 2 inches and set it carefully back down then check both ways again until it shows level, you may have to repeat this once or twice. If it still shows not level you my have to turn the front feet in or out until level. Remember use a combination tilting to the front and adjusting the front ones.

First check if the machine is level .Also makes sure you do not have an unbalanced load. Lint filter between the tubs is loose/broken, tub nut and drive block is worn, bad brake, worn spin tub are some various reasons when washer shakes in spin cycle.

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...
Check out this tip I wrote about the noise and vibration that front load washers can make..
