Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I've had the washer for about 5 years. I went to use it one day and by the time it reached the rinse cycle it was making a loud banging noise. I went to check on it and there was a burning smell.
Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
