Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Excessive drum vibration

We have a kenmore he2 plus frontend loader which is experiencing excessive vibration. The machine had been serviced from a sears tech who balanced the drum as the machine was balanced. The excessive vibration stopped and as a result the leaking water from the front dispenser, which was a result of the vibration.
I have verified the balance of the machine and suspect the drum has unbalance again.
Does anyone have any recommendations to rectify this fault..Thankyou in advance

Yes, look into trading in the Kenmore for one of only two manufacturers that employ a dynamic balance system built into the washer drum. Samsung and LG both use this dynamic balance system that balances the load while it is in motion. They also use a vibration sensing system to modify the time and speed of the spin cycles to minimize any vibration that might still be present. LG has this available on only their upper level models while Samsung's VRT is available on most all models. I believe that both of these manufacturer's are available from Sears.

When the machine goes into spin cycle there is excessive vibration as if something was loose in the drum. Other wise the machine cycles fine. Is there someway to check for bolts or nuts loose on the drum....


Move the drum around by hand and listen carefully. There should be no loose bits or rattling, if there are it is possible that something has slipped in between the drums. It sounds as if the drum bearing may be failing. Grip the inner drum and move it up and down at the front while feeling for play relative to the outer drum. i.e hold outer drum and lift inner drum relative to where you are holding. There should be virtually no play.

My kenmore front loader does not go into the spin cyclr and water is left in the drum


Most likely either the drain pump or hose is clogged or perhaps the drain pump is not working. Machine will not spin with water still in the drum.. Check all connections.

Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Washer knocks very loud on spin cycle and a belt or something has been coming out in pieces for the last few weeks


I just took the back off my older kenmore front loader and discovered that the concrete counter weight had come off the drum and fallen to the bottom of the machine. Reattached it and knocking has stopped, lucky it didn't trash the machine as it is normally attached to the top of the drum.

Shakes violently during spin


make sure your load is medium to large and mutiple pieces. One large bath mat or towel will cause it not to able to balance the load.
Also there is a service bulletin for excess vibration in these machines.
Read it at servicematters.com tech library, service pointers - Whirlpool Duet Sport and maytag machines (Your Kenmore is made by whirlpool and is a Duet Sport)
