Kenmore top load washer,model 110 20102311,should i be able to move tub from top very easily in any direction or should there be some tension,my tub is banging of side walls in spin cycle

The tub should move easily from side to side, however, a better test is to push down sharply on the tub and let go, it should come up and stop the first time, not bounce up and down several times. If it bounces up and down the suspension rods are shot. The part number for the kit of 4 is W10780045, all 4 need to be replaced as a set. To replace them the top needs to be loosened and lifted up, the rods disconnected from the top 2 at a time and replaced (doing opposite corners makes it easier IE: front right and left rear, front left and then right rear). Disconnect the top ends of two rods, lower top, lean washer back and pull out the disconnected two rods from the bottom, reverse the process to install.

Hi, I will try to give you some general tips. If you wash things that can not spread out evenly inside the drum, like mats pillows etc. Disable the high spin and drip dry your items or squeeze out the water by hand.
If the drum swings from side to side when rotating, one of the shock-absorbers inside the machine may be worn out, broke or loose.
If you open the lid, grab the drum and move it a bit back and forth and side to side (not rotating) it should not swing easily but with a damped resistance when the absorbers are ok.
An other experience I have made is the balancing of the feet. I had a new machine that alway moved around during the high spin, even thou I have made an extra flat surface for it to stand on. I could recognize a bumping noise from the feet.
When I pressed down the left or the right front corner with my hand a little, the bumping stopped. Then I adjusted the corresponding foot down and fine tuned it until the bumping disappeared while spinning.
Since then my machine has not moved an other mm (= 1/25").
So equal down force from the feet and no play under any of them is essential to deep it from moving around.
Hope this can help you too.

Tub thumps after nail wedges through small hole bottom and stops tub

You could have an unbalanced tub or the piece is rotating around in the outer tub and making the noise. Contact a professional to have the machine taken apart if the noise continues.

Tub is off balance

The tub is out of balance. When it starts hitting the sides, stop the washer and move your clothes around inside the tub to balance the tub. Now start it to spin again. This should stop the tub from hitting the sides.

The tub moves to freely and bangs on the washer sides

The tub shouldn't bang on the inside of the washer cabinet, as you already know. That is not a "normal" way for it to fail. Rather, I suspect something else. First try this: If you have your washer right next to your dryer, the washer itself is probably banging against the dryer during specific times during the wash - but most likely during the spin cycle. If you spread them apart a little bit - or stuff a towel or two between them, you may find that it stops banging. The washer may also be hitting something other the dry, too. Check all around the washer - try to keep and inch or two between it and anything else. If it still is banging - then something else is causing it.

Good luck!

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. As you already know, that is the reason that it is doing it. You need to check the bottom legs of the washer and make sure none are damaged. Also, I would advise you to get a level tool. By doing this, you will know where the balance is off at. You can add wood slits under the legs to balance them off. Once it is level, you should be good to go.
