According to, you must replace the whole control arm. Here is their procedure:
NOTE do not begin the removal procedure unless a new strut-to-lower arm nut, a new ball joint pinch bolt/nut and a new lower arm-to-front subframe bolt/nut are available.

  1. Remove or disconnect the following:

  2. Place the steering wheel in the unlocked position.

It leaks from under the front door, escpecially when it gets to the rinse cycle. LG LDS5811WW

The Vent Kit behind the lower door panel, upper left corner has a rubber, solonoid stopper. Pressure from the spray arms overcome the rubber as the stopper hardens over time, allowing water to enter into the vent blower assembly. I found my replacement on Sears-Parts for $40 w/ shipping and just ordered it today. Be sure to turn off the breaker to the washer before removing the lower front door panel - 120vac in there, don't want no electricutions.

Sears 440723 front loader bangs when spinning. Tub rotates smoothly but seems very loose

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.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

Kenmore front loader run with shipping bolts in

I would have sears replace the washer and also replace all the damage in your house. If it pulled out the drain hose there could be damage in there, if they are not willing to replace the machine then they should run a thorough diagnostic to make sure EVERYTHING is in working order, and still replace what is damaged to your house

Front load washer

Usually, the problem with frontloaders shaking violently is that shipping materials are still in them (even if you've paid someone to install them). Generally on frigidaire models they have two sets of shipping materials. The first set is a set of 4 shipping bolts on the back panel. After removeing these, on some models, you also have to remove the lower front panel by taking out the screws. On a few of the models you will find 2 yellow metal bars connected to the bottom of the washer and the bottom of the tub. After removing both sets of shipping materials, make sure not only is your unit level, but all feet are firmly on the floor and locked into place. Your machine should have come with a set of instalation instructions that will run you through these steps more clearly, but if you don't have them or are still having trouble, just reply back to me.

Washing machine

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings. They will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer.

I will not buy this washer again (especially from Sears).
