SOURCE: stainless steel drum loose

A loose inner drum usually indicates a failed rear tub bearing. The only solution is to replace the rear half of the tub. (which contains the bearing).... You can check if the pulley nut has come loose by removing the rear panel. There is a large nut that retains the belt pulley to the shaft of the basket.

SOURCE: how to take apart drum assembly on kenmore front load washer

Is this a HE2,5,4 model? Can you give me the model number from inside the door. If it's a front loader. The only way you can get it out is to totally tare it down, cement, springs, shocks, and crack apart the outer tub. Very very labor intense. Usually if the unit is out of warranty, the cost of a tech to do it isn't worth it. What's the issure with it?

SOURCE: the washer makes terrible noise when it spins

do you mean up and down? or when you turn the drum like you are spinning it?if it makes a sound like an airplane takeing off or a train rolling through your house. you have a bad bearing which is a very exspensive repair.

SOURCE: The metal tub has come loose within the housing.

Two possibilities, one that the drum broke off of the supporting shaft--very expensive part (but could possibly be welded) and a complete tear-down to fix. The second is that the main bearing just behind the drum is bad. You can replace the bearing--go to a bearing supply house with the old one--cost less than $20, plus full tear-down to remove and replace. We went the bearing route and years later is still working well. If you try to buy parts from GE, they want to sell you the whole outer drum assembly for many penny.

look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)

During a spin cycle what would cause the basket to be out of balance on every washload, even when there is not a balance issue. Basket acts loose and bangs against inside of machine


sounds like your bearings are excessively worn, open the machine door and hold the drum (stainless steel bit) try to lift this up if it moves freely without the tub moving (outer bit usually plastic or steel without holes) your bearings are gone. or the drum has broken off the wields that hold it to the shaft.
its sometimes cheaper to buy a new machine than repair the bearings and if the drum is loose it will eventually break something inside.

Front load washer loud noise and drum loose but not dropped


Spider arms attached to stainless steel drum inside of tub have probably broken. This is a known problem with Frigidaire front loading washing machines. The stainless steel drum has a 25 year warranty but this does not include the spider arms. You cannot buy the spider arms separately, you have to buy the unit as one. The drum cost about $250.00 and probably about $300.00 in labor to install. You can do it yourself but it is pretty involved. Good Luck!

Replacement Door Panel for GE Profile Dishwasher


Are you trying to replace the microwave door or the GE dishwasher. Either way, www.applianceart.com (under the stainless steel section) has this roll of stainless material that you apply to your appliances. I saw it on the "Today Show." Its basically faux stainless. We put it on our refrigerator and it looks and even feels like real stainless steel. Its really cool. I think its called stainless foil or something like that. Also if you're looking for a stainless panel for your dishwasher they sell actual stianless panels there too.
