There's normally a plastic triangle piece you have to remove to slide the bearing off. Otherwise you've got 2 1/2 inch bolts holding the bearing on the back depending on how old it is. You gave a model number for a washer.

The bearing or spindle the drum rotates on is probably bad or worn out. You can get to the back and turn it by hand and feel it when you turn it. You can tell if it is metal rubbing. If so, you can replace it.

SOURCE: banging noise when the drum is spinning

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
You can get a parts manual from this website:

http://www.applianceaid.com/


If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

My kenmore 970-38712 washer makes a terriible banging noise on the final spin.


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/9703871220/0582/0153200.html?searchType=modelSearch&q=970-38712&searchTerm=970-38712
This link shows you your tub parts. There are 2 springs and 2 shock absorbers. Those may be bad broken or loose and one other thing to check is make sure the inside drum has not broken off of the spider assembly in the back. An easy way to check that is open the door and grab the front lip of the metal tub and try to move it up and down, you will notice a huge amount of movement if it is broken loose. The videos I posted apply to all front load washers, The first 2 are great on diagnosing and the last one shows whats left of a broken spider gear.

If it is the spider support assembly then you will have to replace the entire inner tub and that is about $400 just in parts.

You can't take the back panel off because that is what holds the bearing and holds the drum. I can tell you the bearing is the most likely cause. http://www.repairclinic.com/ sells the bearing kit and I would go ahead and replace the belt while you have it apart. I've done it by myself a few times, but it is best to have someone help at least while putting it back together. Holding the drum in place while putting the screws in the back of the drum (on the bearing) is the hardest part of the whole job. I believe I also got the directions from Repairclinic.com also.

I have a kenmore front load washer model 970-c42072. I'm experiencing a loud noise in the drum on the spin cycle even when it is empty no matter what setting (slow normal fast) What would be the...


If you turn the inner wash drum by hand, what kind of noise do you hear? If it is a thumping kind of noise, it would mean that the spider support arms are broken. If the noise is a loud rumbling sound, similar to a jet engine when it is spinning, it would mean that you have a bearing seal failure and the bearings need to be replaced. Either problem is a big job to fix since the entire washer needs to be taken apart. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing. Sorry.

Washer leaks water in the back of the washer but i cannot see any signs of the leak. this is a front load washer . model 970 ca0042 00,


I have a Kenmore front loading washer HE2 Plus.
Started leaking only 6 months old from the back over the spin motor.
I found a bolt had come out of the motor bracket causing the motor to crack a small hole in the plastic outer drum. I've been down for about a month waiting on the part and service. This is under warranty and we cant get any help any sooner from sears, not even a loaner.
Will not purchase Kenmore products again, 2nd front loader from Kenmore, 2nd problems.

Squeaking Kenmore Stackable Dryer


Your rear drum bearing has worn through the plastic and is now hitting the metal support underneath it,
soon it will act like a guillotine and slice of the ball, the drum will fall backwards into the heating element and short to ground causing the fuse to blow the heater element to burn intwo and the whole thang will be dead in the water.
