Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I replaced a worn-out coupler that was preventing agitation and spin, but now the machine shakes wildly when in spin mode, even with nothing in it. The coupler was stripped out, not broken. What could I have messed up when I made the repair. There are three springs that hold the tub in place, none of them were touched, (I did not remove them and they are where they should be), and 1 spring that goes to the back leg support mechanism, also in place, (this one was remove and replaced). There is a disk at the base of the tub, above the transmission, that I messed with. I turned it back and forth when I was trying to determine what the problem was. I am now wondering if that is supposed to be some sort of balancer. Anyway, my wife reports that the tub seems very loose, and shakes like crazy when it is spinning, as though it is 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.
IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.
