It appears your tub bearing has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Gas smell in washer after gloves were washed


My Dad was a diesel mechanic and his clothes would be full of gas and diesel fuel and grease. My mother would use Oxydol powder and liquid Wisk and a little water, make a paste and put it on his clothes with a paint brush. They always came clean and our washer didn't smell either. This has been 30 years ago but I would think it would work today too. Get you some scented detergent or just the Wisk and try that with the clothes. Of course my Mom used HOT water and also she used sometimes,Arm&Hammer Washing Soda with the above by just adding it in the tub.

Gunk in middle of agitator


the fabric softener spins out of the cup after the wash cycle when spinning the water out of clothes, then the washer fills back up for the rinse w/ your softener having been dispensed. is there a nut at the bottom of your agitator where you see the gunk? If so you can take the agitator out by removing the nut but be careful of the little parts that make the agitator agitate. Do not disturb these little parts if you don't know about them. Does the gunk smell like grease or a mechanics garage? If so chances are it is a lubricant and should not be removed replace the cap and your softener cup and continue enjoying your machine.

Kenmore Washer Won't Drain


yes, check the drain, could be clogged, or check the water pump assembly as well, the clothe could be stuck in the impeller.

the burning smell could be coming from a separate electric water pump and it can not turn that is why it is burning already.

Washer will not spin sometimes


look under for the belt(s). Belts must be clean and dry, and in good shape, no oil or grease on them. If the machine is leaking on the belt, it will slip. Detergent will make the belt slip.
