Through the lower door panel in front of machine. Why???? is machine walking , bouncing or other wise?? This machine spins at HIGH Rpm's so most usual problem is one leg maybe unlevel or possible wood floor maybe "giving " as machine spins and allowing the machine to walk...but then again if machine is "old" shocks could be worn out

My Kenmore front load washer just bgan to goes out of balance


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.
