Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer all over the place.

I have a Kenmore 80 Series washer that i recently replaced a brake in. it started to wobble and dance just before i replaced the brake. when i took it apart i noticed the retaining clip had come off and the brake was riding the shaft. so i replaced that and the problem was solved except for the excessive unbalance. There are 3 springs under the tub all are in good shape. there is 1 vertical spring ( also in good shape ) and i have made sure the washer is level. why when it begins to spin does it become so unbalanced? even empty?

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.

In addition to the springs, I'd check the suspension plate and base assembly pads. These are also used to keep the washer from walking.

See the Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and maintenance manual for these washers.

When we took ours apart to work on the transmission, we broke one of these and the washer walked all over the place.

$10.00 for a replacement set solved the problem.

If you removed the drive tube to fix the brake, make sure that the two tabs on the drive tube fit into the slots in the basket drive block.

Kenmore Series 80 washer. When the spin cycle starts, the interior basket wobbles and seems off kilter. I emptied the load and it still does it, so it is not an unbalanced load


sounds like you have a bad spin bearing. If the unit is over 4 years old, might not be worth fixing. I recommend not using that unit till you have it fixed or get a new one.
