Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
The outer tub is supported by springs, pistons or counterweights to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed.
Unplug the washer and open the cabinet. Because of the variety of balancing mechanisms, you will have to inspect your machine to determine how it is balanced. Once you discover the mechanism, then inspect it for integrity. In the case of old parts that appear to be in working order, you may not be able to tell if they need to be replaced. They may be weak but appear to be in good condition. If no other solution resolves the problem, then replacing the balancing springs or other moving support parts may be called for.

Best of Luck. Any questions just ask.

Hello. I can assist you. First of all you are going to need two things to solve your problem. The first is a small level, you can get a twelve inch or so level from any hardware store, home depot, valu home center, etc. Also pick up a remnant of carpet that is the same dimensions as your washer.
Now Put the carpet remnant under the machine and check the level front to back and side to side. Adjust which ever legs you need to adjust by turning them with a wrench.
Once it is all level, load the clothes into it. DO NOT overload it, ever, usually half to 2/3 full of dry clothing is considered to be a full load.
Now run it and enjoy your good work. Regards, Joe
