Question about Washing Machines
My Kenmore (417.40042990) goes off balance on spin cycle but on high spin it is bouncing just about hitting the sides and front to back. I have replaced the two top springs and the two shock absorbers on the bottom.While this is going on i can hear a thumping but can not find out where it is coming from.The machine is 7 years old and has a belt from the motor to the tumbler.I have tried checking for play from the bearing on the big pulley and no play. Also,if we do not use the machine for a couple of days it gets a mold smell even if we leave the door open. Any advice? Thanks Bob email firstname.lastname@example.org

Replace the belt. A loose or a tense belt could be the reason for those noises. Regarding the mold smell, make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and remove out the bad smell. Good luck!
