Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
We just moved a few weeks ago, and the washer acts like the basket is "off" a bit. I'm thinking it got jarred during the move. It bangs against the side of the washer during spin cycle. I tried to take the top off to see if it's sitting correctly, but can't figure out how to remove the top.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

smirkin, the question here is if the basket is listing against the tub or the whole tub and basket is listing. If the basket is listing and banging around it could be the drive block has worn or broken. I will attach a photo of one. If the whole tub is listing it could be a spring that broke. You can remove the front panel of the washer by pressing in on the two clips on each side of the washer top, The front panel should drop and pull out. You can see if any of the suspension sprins broke. The drive block is located under the basket. The agitator and basket have to be removed to change it out. Take a look at the attachments...Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Banging while spinning
slid the machine out away from the wall and tilt back enough to see underneath. just below the door there is a large concrete weight. chances are it is loose and needs to be tightened. if this problem has been going on for a while the bolts holding the weight on will have snaped and the drum/weight or both will need replacing .

Highly likely that either your bearings or spider arm has gone out, this is no easy fix. You can 'search' above or click on 'troubleshooting' in blue to browse
RepairClinic.com (which is good)
Try these sites for spares.

This is usually due to the floor not being perfectly level, and as a consequence the washing machine not standing firmly on all 4 supports.
There should be at least 2 adjustable feet under the machine, try to make it stand as level as possible, with uniform load on all four.
If you have a bubble level it may help you establish, if there's an obvious slope on your floor and adjust the machine so that it's well levelled.

Believe it or not I have a washer just like yours and when that happened to me I found that the shocks that hold the drum were broken. I ordered new shocks online and replaced them and everything was fine and dandy again!
The shocks are a bit of a pain to install but not all that difiicult.
Do a search for "appliance parts" online and then enter your model number and you can easily find and order the shocks you need.
Check out different sites as the prices can vary for the same part and it seems that there is not any one site that always has the lowest price.
The new shocks also seemed to be built differently then the old ones. (heavier)
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!
