I wouldn't have believed it had I not fixed it myself. It took 20 minutes plus 43min to run a wash cycle. The loud banging went away after I replaced the 4 suspension rods $47 (free shipping).
Tools needed- 1 putty knife, 1 flat head screw driver (or fork, spoon,etc).
Procedure- Unplug washer, Tape down lid and find a pillow to protect top when you lift it.Use a putty knife between top and front panel to push back clamps that hold lock top down. Lift top a prop back on pillow. Reach inside grabbing and lifting rod upward until cuvature of rod hook is above top plastic knuckle. Snap plastic knuckle off. If you are weak, use a srewdriver or spoon handle to slide between hook and then pull upward before snapping knuckle off. Push both clips downward that are holding spring housing in place. (Look at new part which is a different color. It is a ring with 2 clips protruding upward.) Slide rod out of opening of ring. Do one suspension rod at a time. Reverse the procedure to install new rods.
Run Test: Run all hoses. Balance washer feet with a leveler. ( If you don't have a leveler, use a shallow saucer plate with a little water on top of the lid.) Plug-in washer to AC. Remove leveler Run washer.

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.

Loud noise during the spin cycle


Did you have an oil leak at the bottom of the washer? If yes, chances are your transmission oil leaked and your transmission needs changing or repairing.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.


The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

Excessive noise during the spin cycle. we have owned the washer for 16 months. problem started 1 wk. the machine is level.


It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Our Kenmore Elite Oasis that we purchased over 3 years ago started to make incredible noise during the spin cycle, so loud you can barely hear yourself think. We had a repairman from a Service Company...


Yes, Sears repair just ordered one for mine. Entire tub due to bearings gone. Also just over 3 years old and ext warranty ran out in June. Final inspection before warranty was scheduled in June 2010. July the bearings are gone. Hmm wonder how they missed that? Anyway if you call for service, ask about the maintenence plan. Its way cheaper than labor and tub and u have another year for more issues with this piece of junk washer.
