Remove top of machine and check the centralising springs are still attatched. If springs ok tilt machine against the wall after unplugging from the wall socket and check the shock absorbers. One of them could have jumped out of the guides. If shockies are ok, check the spider for cracks/breaks. The spider is the cast part that holds the outside drum in place. To check this you will have to remove the back plate.

I have a Kenmore 22990 top loading washer. it shakes violently and walks across the floor during the spin cycle. it started doing it about two weeks ago. moving clothes around inside the tub does not help much.

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

Wow...does it sound like it's about to take. You can hear it all over the house even with the door to the room closed? We have the same reason. THis started after a bout of lice in the house and we were doing many loads a day for a while. Help!

I just bought the exact same model this weekend that I found used in the classifieds. The person who sold it to me said it worked, but when I got it home and hooked it up, it did exactly what yours did, even with no laundry in it. It would get to the spin cycle and start banging around violently like it had a brick in it. I even used an electronic level to make sure it wasn't uneven on the floor. From doing a little research on the web, i read that the suspension could have gone faulty. I took it out and set it up in my garage and hooked a hose up to the cold to see it run a small cold water load with the back panel off so I could observe what was going on inside. From what I observed, the suspension springs were sprung and some worse than the others. I am going to order a replacement set from Sears tomorrow and replace them to see if the unbalanced problem goes away. Removing them is a cinch and should take about a half hour to do all four and put everything back together. I will let you know if my unbalance problem goes away.
