Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
The washer shakes the house on spin cycle. Lately, the noise it makes sounds like more than just a shaky machine. It sounds like internal parts gone awry. It is too old to pay someone to fix it but worth trying to fix on my own. It is an old unit, about ten years, maybe more. I do not know where to start. if someone can point me in a direction in troubleshooting, I would be appreciative.

Try checking the drum bearings and shocks.They might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations. This is certainly not a problem with the motor. Will try getting some internal diagrams to disassemble in case you are handy and need them.Else call a local technician and get them changed for good.Good luck with the machine.Please do post comments and results.

SOURCE: NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE
You have to take the tub out, take off the rotor from the bottom of the washer, remove 4 bolts and take off the stator, take off the bearing retaining nut, then drive the 2 bearings out with a drift. I bought the bearings online for 20 bucks from a supplier (VBX). They are standard metric bearings number 6005 and 6006. I put some silicone grease on the shaft seal and drove the new bearings into place. Then reassembled, and the washer is whisper quiet.
