Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I've posted this problem before and got some great solutions to my problem but none has worked. My washer shakes and moves around during the spin cycle. Here's what I've done:
Checked the suspension springs, all 4 attached
Leveled the machine front to back / side to side
Cleaned the rubber leg bottoms and the cement flooring
Tilted the machine to level the back legs
Replaced the water pump in case too much water was left in the tub
Checked the balance ring on the top of the tub for fluid. Half full/empty
Any other suggestions?????

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

I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck

Try this... while in in spin turn your spin selector switch and listen if motor spins slower or faster.. at fast spin open your lid quick to see how fast its spinning.. check and make sure your drain line is cleared and the water flow out fast...and if its spinning too slow problem is in the gearbox area..
