Question about Kenmore HE4t 3.8 Cu. Ft. Plus Front Load
I have a Kenmroe elite quiet pan 9 he4t and the other day my sister found plastic shrapnel found in the clothes, so she got my dad and had though that he had something in his pockets. He didn't, so he checked some of the things inside and found that there was a plastic piece that is "eroding" "chipping off", hence the reason for the small plastic chunks in our clothes during the wash. During the spin cycle, the drum makes a racket of noise which isn't normal when we do laundry. Now I'm wondering where we can get that plastic piece and replace it. As far as I know the plastic piece is located in front of the drum. As for the racket the drum makes, you can still hear it as the drum slows down. I'm not sure what it is, but my dad and I are willing to fix it ourselves if the problem is not too severe, so that we don't have to hire a repairman. But if it is we have no choice. How do you find the replacement part (plastic piece)? How do you replace it (plastic piece)? Is it able to be replaced(plastic piece)?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

Hi. Open up the back of the dryer after unplugging it. Take a deep
breath. This is not that hard. A dryer is a very simple thing but you
need to relax and figure out what the parts are. A dryer has a very
basic parts list. The obvious I will not go into with but here goes with
the electrical in the guts of the machine. A motor to turn the drum. A
heating element. A sensor to sense high temps for safety shutoff of the
element. A blower for air. Keep in mind as you look at this that usually
power wires are black or red. You will see some wires that are attached
to a sensor and then on to the heating elements. Take a test light or
volt ohm meter and see if the high temp limit sensor is bad. This can be
a simple ten dollar one from Radio Shack. That is, it will it get
continuity through it. You may have to detach the wires on this sensor
to do this test. The sensor is usually a flattened round disc with two
leads coming out of it. Test the element same as the sensor. Take the
part where there is no continuity through them to the appliance parts
store with the model and serial number of the dryer for appropriate
parts. Maybe ten bucks. I know it sounds scary but you may learn
something and if all else fails just pickup the phone and call the
repairman. Hope this helps.

There can be a loose bearing between the drum and the outer wall of the machine but, there is definitely something loose. I know that this is not what you would like to hear but, the best advice anyone can give you is have your machine looked at by a specialist. Moreover, going to your washing machine retail store, should have the equipment you are looking for, or you can search for it online and compare prices.
