Re: kenmore washing machine

If its out of balance when empty, the most common problem for this brand is the mount or the spring on 1 of the 3 stabilizing struts has come off. pull the shell off the machine and look for a spring or screw that has come off. Replace.

When my washer is on the spin cycle it goes out of balence shuts down no matter wht size load or how i arange the load never completes the spin cycle this is a kenmore elite oasis 5 years old. #2 problem...

as for the washer there maybe a broken spring or where the spring attaches that balances the drum. look for this firest. for the dryer is it spinning around at the right speed if it is then the belt is ok. is it hot inside the dryer after running it when you open the door. if ti is check the dryer vent hose and exterior door at end of hose to see it they are plugged up . if the hose is plugged up the heat and moisture can't excape and the clothes will take a long time to dry.

I have a problem with the counter balence, the machine always shakes even though I have it balenced

check to make sure the levelling legs are locked into place. once levelled, there is a nut that needs to be cranked up to teh case to prevent them from coming loose again

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Hi i have a kenmore washer est 7 year old about 4 mont. ago it started shaking bad and walkes all over. no mater how big the load is .is there a censer in it for balence

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.

Check the components in the Machine Base section.

It's possible that one of the springs has broken or slipped from its' hook.

It's also possible that one or more of the three Base Pads which allows slippage between the top and bottom frames has broken.
