The pins may just be shipping pins that are designed to break and fall into white plastic holders when the washer is installed.

See the Sears parts site for your washer at:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=11092281100

to determine if these are the parts.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

The plastic cup and brass pin are simply shipping tub locks. The pins are designed to brake off and fall into the cups when the washer is installed. They are NOT a problem.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer. While moving it into the house, it made a loud sound and a small copper pin fell out of the bottom. Does anyone know how to put this back in place?


That pin is a pin used to move the washer (secure the drum) and is not used when in normal operation. There are 4 total that should be removed. They are stored in little cups on the legs, and likely fell out of the cup.

The pin fell out of a catch cup used for transporting the washer when new. It is not important unless you put it some place it does not belong.

If you laid the washer down to do the repair you probably got the base plate out of alignment. Open the lid,reach inside and grab the wash tub. Pick it up as much as you can and shift it around. It will usually reseat the plate.
Also block the front of the washer with your foot and raise the rear of the washer off the floor. The self leveling legs should drop down. Let the back of the washer loose and it will settle in on the leveling legs.

This washer should be left in the upright position to change the drive coupling.

A small screw fell through a hole in drum and is scrapping on the


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

Nail in washer


Hi I had the same problem, but not a nail a bra under wire, they have a wire that is sown in under the cup these often work loose and slip through the holes in the drum,in my case it was catching on the heating element if not removed it would catch the element and even damage it or at best my a bad noise. To get at it i just undid the heater element pulled it out from the drum and this then gave me good access to the drum housing so i was able to get at the wire. You must make sure you unplug the washer from the electrics DO NOT work on any appliance when it is connected to the mains. All washers have an heater at the bottom of the drum.If you are handy it will not take you more than an hour to do this job.Good luck.

Brass cotter pins an plastic catch tubes???? Kenmore washer 110.92597210


This is an easy one to solve. Those are moving pins , when in transport. When it is delivered, the delivery people simply just pull on some straps and the pins fall in the cup. You need to keep these when moving washer to put back in, so not to damage anything.

Kenmore 110.20904990 top load washer


ignore those cups with the pins those pins were the travel lock devices and the cotters were attached to the yellow lanyard that whoever first put the unit into service pulled off of the back of the unit per instuctions. this pulled the cotters out of the pins which then fell into those cups. the cotters came out with the lanyard and are long gone. the not spinning is due to something in the clutch not working properly. the moving to one side is caused by one of the pads that the suspension plate rides on being missing. you can look at the diagram on sears website at the parts look up and see were the pads go and find out what the suspension plate is and such good luck!
