    Without a complete model number I dont know who made this for sears even though it's a Kenmore, many others make the stackables for them. If it's indeed made by Whirlpool, you have a bad coupler. This is just what it sounds like. If you will get me the complete model number I'll be able to tell you for sure.

Your brearings are possibly worn, when the machine is off open the door and grab a hold of the drum (metal part on the inside) lift this drum if your bearings are worn it will have some play within its housing, i.e. it will move before the inner tub does and mannually rotate it you should here the bearings rumble if so also. they wear over time. you may be able to get them replaced but check prices first as it may be cheaper to get a new one bearing changes can be labour intensive.

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.

My stackable washer dryer unit is moving like crazy!!


remove front panel.

u will see 3 or 4 bracket's with 2 springs attached. There should be a bolt at the top of each bracket attaching outer tub to bracket. If one is missing (which it probably is) look around in bottom of washer & locate it. All these bolts have to be very tight & this unit is bad about bolts backing out on their own.
