your basket shaft is broken or the bearing are bad it probably sounds like a freight train when it goes into high spin you need your washer rebuilt but it would be cheaper to buy a new washer. to rebuild the washer it will cost aleast 800 dollars

SOURCE: Weird rubbing or mild grinding noise when in spin cycle.

It sounds like the bearings on your tub are going. This is an expensive and difficult job to do. (approx $450 parts and labour and you may do more damage trying to take it apart)

First remove power from the washer. The top panel #2 in the diagram can be removed by removing the two screws in back. The kick panel #16 also has two screws that hold it in place. From there you should be able to find what you lost. Best of luck!

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise

I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

SOURCE: Clothes come out super wet

Drive motor failure, CCU or Motor control failure. To ceck this look at your owners manual and from then test the parts with a multi meter. To keep from spending money you can unplug your machine for 15 to 30 minutes, plug it back in and sometimes that will clear the code and everything will work just fine. Also some parts are covered under the 5 year warranty so make sure about that also

Kenmore elite washer troubleshooting


Sounds like your bearings are worn and need replacing... a horrible job. The frayed plastic may mean a new drum. To replace the bearings you must remove and separate the drum which requires removing the top, front, and back panels. Lots of clips, screws, hoses, wires.... I'd take it on if this were my unit; but for a client, I'd say get a new one. This is not uncommon for these units. Sorry.

My Kenmore Elite He4t front load washer is making a terrible noise when it starts spinning the clothes. What could be wrong?


Sounds like the rear bearing. If you hear the noise when you manually spin the drum or if the drum has any movement when you lift up on it then you need major repairs

The metal basket (inner basket) has a broken spider (these are the support brackets that hold the basket to the bearing shaft). The inner basket will need to be replaced and the front and rear shell of the drum may also need to be replaced depending if any other damage has been done. It's a big job, about 2 hours for a good tech.

Clanking noise during spin cycle


I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer since it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings.
