Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
When the washer is in the first stage of just agitating the clothes, full of water, no matter the size of the load, it makes this horrible tapping noise. it seems to be concentrated on the front right side of the machine, but i'm not a repairwoman! i had a friend lift it up because i got a tip that it might be one of the springs underneath popped off, but all three springs seem fine. no parts are hanging off or broken. does anyone know what might be wrong? it's an older model, but no old enough to be breaking on me!
Likely the drum friction pads are worn.
