Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The machine was working properly until 1 day ago. Now, the tub is not balanced. It leans forward so the water entering the machine cannot get the rim of the tub. This is especially pronounced during the rinse, spin cycle. One of the springs was broken so I fixed but bi matter what I do, I cannot get the tub to position itself so the water won't engage the rim Should I replace the other springs? Is there a way to square the tub so it doesn't tilt towards the front right of the machine? Thank you.

Washing machine off balance in one cycle


Make sure washer is on a level surface and all four feet adjusted properly. A slight forward lean may help with this problem as the out of balance switch is at the rear.

The washer has the sound both times but not all the time. I THINK we found all the pieces but now that you mentioned it, perhaps not. Are you thinking there may be a piece lodged somewhere and making that noise?

Kenmore washer


There are a few things that can cause this issue.
1. The counter balance spring broke or the mounting hole for the spring rusted through.
2. One or more snubber pads may have come off.
3. The balance ring may have come loose from the basket or the ring has been damaged and the fluid has leaked out..

Start by removing the shell as follows:
A.) The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
B.) With console lifted you will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
C.) There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
D.) Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

1.) The counter balance spring is located in the bottom rear. It should be attached between the cabinet and a bracket on the tub.
2.) Inspect snubber and corner pads. May be brown or white in color.

3. Remove tub ring by pushing down then lifting each locking tab.
Inspect balance ring for proper fit and any cracks. By moving/shaking ring you should hear liquid sloshing around.

Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle


I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck

Odor when starting cycle


Check your water softener(If so equipped). This can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained. Good luck!
