    part #285753A coupling, motor & isolation was replaced prior to my arrival home.

    please explain more about this "balancing ring" I cannot find it isolated on a schematic unless it is part of the tub. How does it go bad?

  • Anonymous Dec 23, 2008

    I located a spanner wrench to remove the inner metal basket with molded plastic hollow top. There is water in this expanded plastic top. When basket is on its side the volume of water takes up half the space. Should there be water inside this space? No balancing ring is found in this model. I ran the drive shaft without the internal basket and it runs to speed without wobble. The block has some wear on it but isn't more than a few thousands out of true. There appears to be more slop on the basket collar when the block is reset into the detached basket, but I do not know if this is lost when the nut assembly is tightened down.
    1. Should there be water in this plastic collar.
    2. With the apparent abscence of the counter balance in this model is it most probable that the inner basket slope (no more than a couple of mm) is the cause of the wobble on spin that shuts down the cycle?

    There s nothing on the top of the outer tub of this model-at least not now. Model number:11092597200

    After 5 attempts I have finally received an undamaged tub with fluid filled plastic balance ring and installed into washer. This has not solved the problem. Spin cycle still gets out of balance, shakes wildly and shuts down. Same as original problem. All springs have been replaced by me. Direct drive couple was replaced by my brother while I was overseas. Where should I look next?

    I have until this question just had the skeleton attached. I used a wire inside the power plug to allow the spin cycle to function so that I could test the balance of the tub before assembly. I put the machine back together and, yes it does work through all the cycles including wash. It will begin the "galloping" sound of out of balance only at high speed spin when all the water is out of the tub.

    Thank-you for your response

    A balance ring snaps down on top of the outer plastic tub. It can go bad or simple come loose from the pastic tub.

Kenmore washer wobble, banging


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/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.24902200&pathTaken=partSearch

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131&osCsid=90fdc122f6335c7c64f46f2ea1b1c887


Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

WHIRLPOOL TRANSMISSION DESCRIPTION AND SPRINGS

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/2550f737b3129b0c85256b0600504738/$FILE/787772%20%234.pdf


If it's not the springs or pads, you may consider that the "Agitator Cams" in the transmission are not raising the Agitator Gear high enough (about 1/16" ) when the washer goes into spin mode.

See the description of what the Cams do in the Service Manual.

We had the same problem, excessive vibration and noise during the spin cycle.

In order to solve that problem, :

Assuming that you know how to remove the cabinet, agitator (you don't need to remove the tub), pump, motor and transmission the agitator cam and follower use the same whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

It sounds a bit complicated but it really isn't too bad and (For a $15 part, saved buying a $170 transmission.)

Following is the Whirlpool parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models use the same part numbers.

Jan 09, 2010 | Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Spin cycle spins out of control - the machine seems to work just fine up until it reaches top speed on the spin cycle, then it wobbles really bad. Its like the load is unbalanced, but no matter how few...


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.29812890

Look at the section for the Machine Base.

Sears / Whirlpool / Kenmore top load washers use a set of springs and suspension pads to keep the top of the washer with the tub and basket from vibrating against the base of the washer.

It's possible that one or more of the springs has come off and / or that the suspension pads have worn down or broken.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to the springs and pads.

They are relatively inexpensive.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't have to remove the agitators, tub, motor, pump or transmission, just the cabinet.

Washer shakes as if unbalanced during spin cycle I think that part of the suspension has failed, the result is the washer shakes violently during the spin cycle but otherwise seems to perform reasonably...

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.

Whirlpool / Kenmore top load, direct drive washers use a number of springs between the main suspension plate and base assembly as well as friction pads that are designed to minimize shaking.

See the Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

It's likely that one of the springs or pads has broken or come off.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet to get at these.
