Re: kenmore 416.82042042

Remove the botton front panel and look at both sides towards the bottom. There are mini shock absorbers. Most likely, one is broken. They are only $16.99 each at (part # 131268200). There is also a counterweight on the left side that may be invlolved. I just opened my washer and saw the counter weight laying loose on the floor. Not sure if DIYJim can tackle this job or not............

Washing machine shakes violently during spin


If your washing machine shakes violently or if there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

On spin the machine knocks loadly and "walks" on the floor. Machine is level, on a sturdy floor and the feet are positioned so that it cannot "rock back and forth" (i.e., this is not your typical "unlevel"...

A failed bearing will make a rumbling sound as the basket spins. The faster it spins the louder the sound gets. I would check to see if the spider arms are broken. If you turn the basket by hand, if you hear any kind of thumping sound as you turn the basket, this could indicate the one or more of the spider arms are broken. If they are, it is an expensive repair.

these machines can have this problem when placed on a pedestal and/or the floor may be level but not solid. a "bouncy" floor will amplify any movements. remember, these machines are much heavier and spin much faster than top-loaders. just because it doesn't jiggle doesn't mean the floor is level. you may have to brace to floor or foundation somehow

This sounds like the brakes have gotten some residue on them and are grabbing way too hard. The banging is the tub stopping too fast and the torque from this makes the tub bang into the cabinet. Just one bang at the end of a spin. Is this correct???

check and make sure the washer is LEVEL otherwise when in spin, it may "walk" across the floor. also if it's not level then the tub will "tilt" in one direction and may contribute to the thump, thump.
