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.

Kenmore elite type 580 no: 27087603 works well machine has been leveled and load is balenced yet it sound like theres a train running past in your back yard ' why so loud

Lol, the spin cycle on them is so powerful it will walk around your uitlity closet. Unly suggestion is to use wood or some other wedge to make a tight squeeze between the machine and the wall. This will keep the spin from allowing the machine to move or make loud noises.

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.

Kenmore washing machine

did the rod come out with the yellow strap when you pulled it???
if it did i would call sears they may have a strap issue that they need to know about the rod should have came out when you pulled the strap

also you need to grab hold of the console and pull it up till the rear legs come off the floor so that the rear leveling legs can reset then sit it back down and it self levels

hope this helps let me know if you need any more help
