Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
My Kenmore HE3 front loading washer is about 3 years old and recently began making a strange noise during the high speed spin cycle. It sounds like there are several ball bearings rolling around between the drum and the outer housing. Is the shaft bearing mounted in the rear outer housing going bad or is it possible that some coins worked their way into this area? If the bearing is the culprit, can it be replaced separately or only as part of a new rear housing half?
Thanks for your help.
Sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...
