Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer
During overload the drum began to wobble. Now I believe it is no longer atatched ( drum ) and it wont stay level during spin. everything else works fine. The drum is off center and during spin cycle it wobbles a lot and is noisy / sounds like drum is hittin the side of frame
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.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Two things to check are the Basket Drive Block and the Brake and Drive Tube.
The clutch on the transmission drives the Brake and Drive Tube when in spin mode, the Basket Drive Block transmits the spinning of the Drive tube to the tub.
See the following description of how to pull the cabinet, agitators, drive block and drive tube.
As an aside, you don't need to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the Drive Block Basket Lock Nut. I found that by using a short 10" pipe wrench, opened all the way and hooked over one of the tabs on the nut, and giving it a short whack with a hammer, the nut will come loose.
Check that the basket drive block fits on the drive tube with the two tabs on the drive tube fitted into the slots in the drive block.
