your basket shaft is broken or the bearing are bad it probably sounds like a freight train when it goes into high spin you need your washer rebuilt but it would be cheaper to buy a new washer. to rebuild the washer it will cost aleast 800 dollars

SOURCE: HE4t kenmore washer rubber drum gasket not attatched.

Removed the top and Front reinstalled the counter balance. the rubber gasket has a 1" tear in it which I patched with a rubber tire patch for now. Two of the locking nuts for the leveling of the machine were loose it went out of level causing the machine to rock and probably caused the counter balance to loosen up. My daughters come in from collage and over load it on weekends which adds to the machines demise. All have been warned.

There can be a loose bearing between the drum and the outer wall of the machine but, there is definitely something loose. I know that this is not what you would like to hear but, the best advice anyone can give you is have your machine looked at by a specialist. Moreover, going to your washing machine retail store, should have the equipment you are looking for, or you can search for it online and compare prices.

During the spin cycle basket vibrates very badly - very rough


I had a similar problem. During the final high spin and there was POW and the drum went funky eating into the plastic. I opened the back of the washer and look things over,.The belt for spinning was intact. I set the washer on a drain/spin option and watched from the front and back. While watching the pulley on the drum and could tell there was a hiccup as it went around. I pulled the pulley off and put on a new pulley. The new pulley was going in a perfect circle to spin the drum. It's not a hard repair, just need a little muscle to loosen the nut holding the pulley on and the same muscle to tighten the nut as much as possible. Hope this helps.
