If it is the main drum which is now sagging - rattly and loose - check rear screws are tight. If they are, then you probably need a rear drum bearing.
Cost is around £50 for the parts - and around 2 hours labour as it is a fairly long job to replace.

My Kenmore front loading washer sounds like a airplane taking off when it is in a spin cycle, is it supposed to sound like that. They are only two years old!!


Hi,
I can't tell you how many times a year I have that description about a front load washer.
I always find the same problem with them too. The tub seals has let water get into the rear drum bearing making the bearing fail.
Remove the back washer panel and look at the center of the tub. You will often see little trail of grease and water residue from the seal leaking.
If you do not have a extended warranty it's can be a costly repair as you can not just replace the rear bearing. You will need to replace the outer tub that come with the bearing pre installed and often the spinner shaft too.

Washer makes loud clunk as it goes around. tub feels very loose. front load Gallery. I thought something in between tub and shroud but nothing. I think tub is loose.


it sounds like you have a broken spinner assembly,
this is the unit that connects your innur tub to you center shaft seal,,,,
it can be replaced and repaired by you no special tools but the cost could be quite extensive....
an outer tub and spinner is an absolute minimum and there are parts to inspect as you take it apart
do you need both halves of the outer tub would be the biggest one
unless this machine is less than just a few years I would just not bother putting the money into it
its well past cost effective 500.00 for the two parts ive mentioned

Crack in the bottom of my Kenmore washing machine tub


What is the model number? Is this a front loader or a top loader? To answer your question, yes, the tub can be replaced. You need to take a look at your warranty information to see if this can be replaced at no cost to you. Most manufacturer's warranties cover the first year against any major defects. However, some warranties are extended on certain parts. Something you may consider.

If you post back with your complete model number, I can give you an idea on how much a replacement tub may cost you, and if you have to pursue this on your own...I can give you the steps required to replace the tub.

NOTE: Marine epoxy or plumbers goop may work as a temporary fix in the mean time.

Tub bangs and seems to be spinning out of round


One of the support arms on the back of the spin basket (stainless steel tub) is broken and causing it to spin in the fashion you describe. The only fix is to replace the spin basket. Using it in its current condition will cause serious damge to the outer tub shell. Let me know if you decide to replace it or need assistance locating a replacement tub. I can assist you in how to disassemble the washer and how to reinstall a new tub. Sorry...I wish this was better news.
