Question about Kenmore 43042 Front Load Washer
My front load washer recently starting banging during the spin cycle like it's going to tear itself apart. I took the top and back off and I can find no problem with anything in the unit. The bearings and pulley/belt all seem to be fine with no noise or rough spots. I have seen some prior similar posts and it appears that some people are replacing the complete inner and outer drum units to solve the problem. Prior to spending another 1/2 of what the washer cost was originally I was hoping this might be a common problem with a more simple solution? Does anyone know if there is an easier/cheaper fix for this problem?
sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO TGRY TO PAY ATTENTION WHEN YOU LOAD THE CLOTHES IN. TRY TO LAYER THEM LIKE A CAKE AND NOT JUST TROW THEM IN. I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM

SOURCE: bearing noise
You have to remove the outer tub assy from the cabinet then split the halfs, We're told the the bearings are part of the rear tub housing. You might be able to press out the bearings

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.
Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.

from the top access ,
check the suspension out like you would a car,
move the drum up and down and sideways ,
it should resist and settle w/o bounce,
the springs should be tight.
the placement of the marks will give you an indication as to which opposite arm or spring is weak.
