Washer bangs loudly in middle of spin cycle


Hello,

Make sure the back spring is still on the back of the tub. That tends to come off sometimes. Check all the other springs while you're down there too. You can balance the unit if you tilt the back side of the washer and then set it back down. it has auto leveling feet. What's happening is once the water is all drained out, the unit will enter the final spin cycle and spin very fast putting the unit off balance so the tub bounces around.

Good luck, let me know if this helped.

The washer bounces during spin cycle


Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.

I have a Kenmoer front load washing machine that doesn't spin.


You have an issue with your off balance detection program.

The problem could be at the motor control unit (MCU) or the central control unit (CCU). The quickest, easiest and least expensive one to replace is the MCU.

Take off the front access panel (at the bottom, held on with three screws). The MCU is located on the left hand side. It looks like a white (or off-white depending on the age) box.

Open the plastic flap on the front of it, and disconnect all the quick connects (make sure you mark them so they go back in the same spots).

To remove the MCU from the bottom of the cabinet, there is a locking tab on the front tab. Lift that, and slide the whole unit forward.

To replace, do these steps in the reverse order.

Good luck!

Kenmore Waher spin cycle out of balance


Sounds like your front to back spring is pulling to tight, sometimes you need to replace it and sometimes you can take it off and stretch it. hope this helps
