Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Sears Kenmore 110.23014101 Top Load Washing Machine

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?????

Thanks, Jim

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle

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

SOURCE: whirlpool washer lxr9245eq1 doesn't spin dry completely

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..

I have a kenmore elite oasis washing machine model # 110 2706201. during the sheets/towels cycle i keep getting an error f51. what needs to be done to correct this?


Call your Sears customer service representative and not repair people. Our repair representative for Sears in Houston flately denied there was a problem. I called the right people and took care of that. Make sure you give them the model and it manufacturing ID number. No matter what they tell you it is a defective board made by Whirlpool who also made your machine. It is covered under a warranty( recall) . If you Google oasis kenmore problems your computer will light up. It took me a while, but they fixed mine. Two weeks later it was another problem. I spent 1200 new in 2007. We have hade no less than 6 service calls. My old washing machine is being used by my inlaws and is 15 years old. The way sears has handled this they have done a great deal of damage to thier loyal customers.

Instructions on how to install a belt on a kenmore top load washing machine model #: 110.24622300


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.

Next, see the following illustrated description of how to replace a belt on top load washers:

Kenmore Oasis washing machine is giving me a UL code with every wash now. Do I have to call for service or can I fix it myself?


See the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio washer which is the same as the Sears Oasis.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/409753510a90c8be852571e90073421b/$FILE/8178583.pdf

You may get an idea of the (UL Unbalanced Load) problem and solutions.

The top of the spinning post in the middle of the tub now won't spin when washing (evidently disconnected from lower part of spinning post)?


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.

Some Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a two piece agitator.

The lower piece will turn both left and right while the upper unit is designed to turn only one way.

The device that allows the upper unit to turn only one way are called "Agitator Dogs" small plastic pieces that can wear over time.

See the following for how to check and replace them if they are worn.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=7bfb2504c9c31a483dd78b22ff7e405a

See the Sears parts site for the agitator. These are relatively inexpensive parts.

My washer works great, however, I have to manually change the wash cycles. It won't change through the cycles on its own. Is there an easy fix it solution that i can do at home? Or do I have to order a new...

Unfortunately it sounds as if you do need a timer motor.

Lint on clothes


The lint filter should be in the agitator. Pull the softener dispenser off the top of the agitator and check for a filter. You might even find that the agitator shaft is very dirty. Put through a warm wash with a solution of 1 cup vinegar to one cup bicarbonate of soda and let it go through complete wash. This should solve the problem.
