Were is the counter balance spring


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the section covering the base and you should see where the springs fit.

Also see the following Whirlpool PDF Parts list with diagrams and part numbers.

Kenmore Oasis top load always out of balance and bangs


First just to let you know, the oasis is very sensitive to the load level and water ratio if its too heavy the load has to be perfectly balanced inside the tub. Next check to see if any of the straps are broke. The next thing is that the newtator has tighted up all on its own so when it spins the newtator grabs the tub while it spins at high speed. I have never had to fix this but i know it is a common problem. I hope i helped a little. Good luck!

Drum out of balance


There are a few things that can cause this issue.
1. The counter balance spring broke or the mounting hole for the spring rusted through.
2. One or more snubber pads may have come off.
3. The suspension springs may have stretched or broke.

Start by removing the shell as follows:
A.) Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
B.) With console lifted you will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
C.) There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
D.) Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

1.) The counter balance spring is located in the bottom rear. It should be attached between the cabinet and a bracket on the tub.
2.) Inspect snubber and corner pads. May be brown or white in color.

3.) Inspect suspension springs.

There are a few things that can cause this issue.
1. The counter balance spring broke or the mounting hole for the spring rusted through.
2. One or more snubber pads may have come off.
3. The balance ring may have come loose from the basket or the ring has been damaged and the fluid has leaked out..

Start by removing the shell as follows:
A.) The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
B.) With console lifted you will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
C.) There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Remove tub ring by pushing down then lifting each locking tab.
Inspect balance ring for proper fit and any cracks. By moving/shaking ring you should hear liquid sloshing around.

Check base mount springs, there are 3 from base to tub and 1 from tub to back bottom for counter balancing. If all are ok then you will have a skid plate problem. Best to call for help.
