Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
The spin cycle starts out slowly, no problem.... ramps up to 'medium' speed, all is still well.... ramps up to highest speed, a banging noise starts and intensifies. The steel drum is minutely out of balance with the outer drum (seen with the rubber gasket removed).
This may be the problem, but it could also be an imbalanced load, a broken shock or a bad off balance sensor.
However, if you do decide to replace the tub, it's easier and a few dollars more ($229 cdn) to replace the whole tub as a kit. It will shave off at least 45 mins to an hour of your repair time, instead of spliting the tub.
Good luck. For a trained tech, it's an hour and a half job. So expect it to be half a day if you are doing it for the first time.
Also, beware when you put it all back together, the coin catch (black hose that goes from bottom of tub to drain pump) can be difficult to get back on, and if it's not on just right, it will leak.
