Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Kenore Elite 110.45992400 and it is thumping when it spins and the drum feels loose when you try to move it around. I've been reading, I gather this is the tub/bearing assembly? What is the spider assembly I've seen you talking about? I have also looked for this part (rear tub assembly) and cannot find it for under $400.00 Is it the model that makes it so expensive? I wish I would of stuck with a top loader!! Lise, Vermont

    Thank you for taking your time to answer!

    I guess I'll have to look at it and see.

    But chances are, I will just have to go with another washer.

    Why spend more than it's worth.

    I wish I would have read about theses washers before buying one.

    How do I go about getting just the Drum Spider?

    I look for my washer and cannot find it? It is one big assembly, and cannot figure out which part number is for mine?

The drum bearing is located at the back of the drum, and it is held by a drum spider.

This is the drum spider:

I have a Kenore Elite 110.45992400 and it is - 7681e01.jpg

The drum spider is attached to drum on one side, and on the other it has the drum bearing.

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

Inglis dryer making thumping sound when drying


is the unit level, open the dryer try moving the drum around, see if the drum loose, there mite something in the machine that got caught on the drum some how and when it goes around it bangs,
you mite try spinning the dryer without turning it on and listen to the drum and see if you can hear any thing hitting the drum or what is make those load sounds. if you cannot turn the drum manually you mite bribe a guy or friend to check it out for a beer or glass of wine, and if they down drink bake some cookies.

When the machine goes into spin cycle there is excessive vibration as if something was loose in the drum. Other wise the machine cycles fine. Is there someway to check for bolts or nuts loose on the drum....


Move the drum around by hand and listen carefully. There should be no loose bits or rattling, if there are it is possible that something has slipped in between the drums. It sounds as if the drum bearing may be failing. Grip the inner drum and move it up and down at the front while feeling for play relative to the outer drum. i.e hold outer drum and lift inner drum relative to where you are holding. There should be virtually no play.

Noise from drum


Hi,
This is difficult to work out as there are so many different symptoms. Here are my thoughts -

Dust from carbon rushes is black. Grey dust usually comes from a loose concrete weight. Loose tub weights are rare on this model but they cause a loud knocking noise which is often worse when the washing machine is revving up to spin and dying down from a spin (suspension problems are also often worse at this safe too). It's not normally a metallic sound though.

If the noise is coming from the motor banging against the sides of the machine then it will make the machine move when it happens. The whole machine may jump or move to one side. The motor often thumps the side of the washing machine on Hotpoint washers where the motor is fitted at the top of the tub and over to the right hand side. This is a daft place to fit a motor and only .I think they've eventually stopped now though.

It is normal to be able to push the drum to the side so that the motor hits the casing. If the suspension has gone, the tub should be twisted and leaning to one side more than the other or it just could be very loose. It's difficult to check suspension if you don't know how it should feel.

If the noise is coming from the inner drum hitting the heating element or throwing an object like a £1 coin (trapped between the inner drum and the outer tub) around, then the washing machine will be stable but the noise would still be a horrible metallic knocking. This is one cause I suspect.

Something rattling under the drum


Strangely enough, I found the problem to be in the motor. If the noise becomes pronounced during the high speed spin cycle, then that is the problem. I had a repairman out for mine and they wanted to replace the drum, however when I took off the back and removed the belt, I could turn the drum separate from the motor and could hear that the problem was in the motor bearing, not the drum. Hope this helps.

During spin cycle started making loud noise now drum feels loose DURING SPIN CYCLE DRUM SOUNDS AS IF IT'S HITTING SIDE.. FEELS LOOSE WHEN I PUSH IT AROUND FRIGIDARE GLTF1040ASO


ckd your warranty papers sounds like rear drum support(spider) has broken will require new basket and rear drum half est cost 400-600 spider is not a separate part and rear bearing is probably damaged that too is not a separate part and require rear tub replacement
