does it agitate???. if it does not then you need the motor coupling. you need to remove the cabinet, yes, I said the cabinet, remove the pump,motor and you got to the coupling. replace all part in kit. reassemble and test. go to the website of sears parts WITH THE COMPLETE MODEL. and get the part. model starts like 110.xxxxxxxxxxx

Hello, my Kenmore 90 series washer is shaking badly on spin cycle and we discovered the tub inside seems to be rather loose, does this mean something may have come unhinged?

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore2.gif / 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.

Also see the Whirlpool2.gif / Kenmore installation and maintenance manual.$FILE/L-55.pdf

Thefirst thing that I'd do is pull the cabinet and check the levelingsprings and plate pads. These are designed to keep the tub frombouncing against the cabinet during the spin cycle.

Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet.

The Sears diagram shows where the springs and pads are located.

The top load Whirlpool / Kenmore washer has a tub that is designed to somewhat "free-float" The springs and pads keep it from getting too out of control. If one or more of the springs or pads is loose or damaged, the tub can contact the cabinet making a very loud sound.

Kenmore 70 series, 110 washer leaks water when

Hi, You will need to change the inlet mixer valve. It is sticking open just enough to allow water to drip through it. This should be chandes asap so that it doesn't get bad enough to over flow the washer.
Here are directions on how to remove the cabinet so you can get to the inlet valve.
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate

this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.

The tub sometimes gets moved to one side. Open lid and center the tub before you test run try that first.

Kenmore top loading washer model 110-9259220 90 series has a very slow leak

Once you have the console open and the cabinet removed, take off your tub ring (the white plastic cover over basket) and you agitator. Unfortuneately, you're right there is a special tool for removing the 4 notched nut. I would check with my local appliance part store or order it from the manufactures web site. I belive they call it a spanner wrench. After that, your basket will lift out.
