I don't have experience with Kenmore top loaders and the tub is set-up quite differently from the machines i do work on. However, there are a whole bunch of videos on YouTube on machines just like yours. Find them here:

Also here is a cool site on whirlpool machines that should be quite similar if not identical to yours, with videos:

SOURCE: Loose tub on GE WJSR2080V

Reach (or look) over the tub, just under the metal top, at the four corners of the machine to see if the rubber tab dampening straps are OK. (not broken) If broken, use putty knife to push in 2 spring clips at very top of front panel (a couple inches in from the L and R side) and pull to take front panel off. Remove two 1/4 hex head screws holding top to side panels. Remove top. (looks like your model has a lid switch which can be unplugged by the back splash.)
Also check that the inner tub does not rock independently of the outer tub. If it does, pull agitator and tighten large left hand threaded nut.

The tub continues to go off balance in spin cycle. Starts out smooth then starts to wobble terribly til the UL shows and shuts down. Support rods are good


There is a little device inside the washer that allows the agitator to spin independent of the drum. If this gets stuck, the washer will try to spin the whole drum instead of just the agitator. This will cause the washer to think the load is too large or out of balance, causing the error code. On some Whirlpools this device is just a washer.

Tub is off balance


The tub is out of balance. When it starts hitting the sides, stop the washer and move your clothes around inside the tub to balance the tub. Now start it to spin again. This should stop the tub from hitting the sides.

Whirlpool washer model wslp1100d after the rinse


Hi Derek.

There are several different problems that may result in basket wobbling and machine shaking heavily during the spin cycle. Sometimes the shaking can result in spin cycle not ending, like in your case.

To find out what the problem is the washer must be taken apart and the tub removed.

A common situation is given by a defective drive hub.

At the end of this comment there is a movie showing how to reach and replace the drive hub in whirlpool top load washers. In this washer you will find a more complicate device instead of the hub shown in the movie. There is a pulsator, the balancer and other parts that must be inspected. The two assemblies are indicated respectively as part 52 and 56 in diagram nr.1 below. Here the part list: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5239648&diagram_id=26470626#d26470626

If you find a foreign object such as a cloth below the tub, then that can be cause for the shaking and wobbling.

If the parts below the tub are OK, then one of the suspensions may be broken. Suspension (damper) is indicated as part 36 in diagram 2. Here parts: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5239648&diagram_id=26470625#d26470625

Off balance spin cylce


The base of the tub assembly rests on a white plastic ring called a 'snubber'. If any type of lubricant gets in this area, the tub will wobble excessively. The major cause for this issue is a failed transmission where oil has leaked out and into the snubber. The transmission may be warranted for 10 years. Check your owners manual. A good method to check for oil is to tilt the machine back and remove the plastic cover in the center of the pulley, if it contains oil, the transmission is leaking also look at the inside cabinet wall for signs of oil splatter.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Spin


Does this happen with every load? I've had this happen occasionally but it was caused by one or two heavier when wet pieces of clothing that caused the tub to get off center and it would wobble out of control. By just rearranging the wet clothes to balance the tub it stopped wobbling. But only after making sure that the heaviest objects were on opposite sides if the tub.
