Question about Washing Machines

Kenmore front loader washer squeaks in washer mode and shakes in spin.

Recently, our Kenmore front loader washer started squeaking in the wash mode. I thought it was the rubber on the back of the bath mats that were washing, but then it started shaking in the spin cycle. Since then, the problem has gotten worse. It sounds like a belt slipping or maybe a bad bearing.

Hi,

One of my favorite problems!

We often think that washers are level BUT one of the 4 feet probably requires adjusting downwards so that it really presses against the floor. So-

Remove power.

Press very firmly against one front corner and in towards the centre (sorry- I'm a retired Englishman living in SW France!) and try to rock it. If it moves even the slightest it's the foot at that corner which requires adjusting- with the open-ended spanner which came with the machine (what spanner?)! An adjustable will do and make sure that the foot is adjusted downwards so that it does really press against the floor, almost to the point of raising the corner but not quite.
If not that corner then do the same with the other.
Once adjusted lock all 4 feet by screwing the lock nuts up tight to the base of the washer so they will not move. You should not be able to rock it anymore.
If, after this action, the washer STILL shakes during the spin cycle, I suspect the drum suspension springs/shock-absorbers as being faulty..........................but I would bet that adjustment will cure it!

Good luck,

John C

Kenmore top-loading washing machine squeaks


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check if there are any sucked small clothes, safety pin, lint or debris in the water pump. If the pump is fine then the squeaking sound may be due to gear dogs in the agitator or bad gear case. The washer will spin and agitate at the same time. If the washer is still under warranty then do not try to open, repair or replace any part to void the warranty.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore he2 plus front loader washing machine comes up with an error code or rL


The rL error code during the clean cycle is likely caused by friction on the spin basket shaft since you indicate that you hear squeaking when the washer is spinning. The squeaking is normally caused by a bad bearing in the rear tub shell. I recommend that you have the washer diagnosed and repaired by a Sears service technician. This type of problem will normally require an extensive tear down of the washer to repair. It is not a problem that you can normally repair yourself.

Open the door & slowly rotate the spin basket to see if you can feel any kind of drag on the bearings. If the bearings check good, the control board is sensing a load & will need to be replaced.

Squeaking noises are hard to find unless u open it and pin point where its coming from.. you can open the back cover if you are comfortable doing so.. let it run to see if you can heard... sometimes the bolt holding the pulley to the drum is loose and need to be tighten. Other possible is the shocks came loose or when install new.. the shipping materials were not remove..
