Kenmore front loading washer drum is loose and makes loud noise when spinning?

sounds like support springs for the drum have become detached or broken. Do not use, suggest new machine as old ones not worth the investment.

I have the Whirlpool Topload Cabrio washing machine and it will be a year old on Jan. 15, 2011. It is really starting to stink up my laundry room. I have run the wash cycle through with distilled vinegar...

Here is what I do. I run "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner" thru the washer first with HOT water. Then, I recommend running a rinse only with hot water & bleach to rinse the washer out really well and don't forget to leave the lid opened when the washer is not in use.

We have a Whirlpool Duet Sport Front-Loading Automatic Washer and it makes a pretty loud noise when in the spin cycle. The volume is directly proportional as to how fast the washer is spinning. It's a...

The symptoms that you describe are caused by bearing failure. The water seal in the wash tub has failed, allowing water to leak into the bearing causing the bearings to rust. As the bearings start to rust, they will not roll properly and start to make a rumbling sound. The sound get louder the faster the bearing turns.
It a major job to repair since the washer has to be taken apart and the wash drum needs to be removed to replace the seal and bearings. Get a few estimates before deciding whether the washer is worth the cost to repair or replace. Sorry.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 top loading wash machine that leaks. It is approx 12 years old, model 110.4767290 (canadian). It has a 2 inch crack in the bottom of the plastic tub. I tried filling with expoy...

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.

The numbers following the 110 (which means it's made by Whirlpool) are usually 8 digits. Using the number that you provided, I couldn't find your washer on the Sears site. You will want to verify the number (usually by lifting the lid) and/or check for manuals / parts site from the following Sears site:

Sears has replacement tubs (at least for my 12 year old top load for about $116.75 (U.S.) but you may be able to get one from Whirlpool for about the same cost. If you can get to the diagrams on the sears site. they often have "Manufacturer Authorized Substitutes) which are Whirlpool numbers.

I was told the bearing is shot on the Whirlpool Duet Washer and it is not worth repairing, the machine is only 6 year old, any advice?

a 6 year old washer should not be scrapped unless it is made in china, replacing a 5$ bearing is worth fixing. even if you need to buy a drum unit.

The washer runs threw the cycles but drum wont spin

If it is a topload whirlpool or kenmore, you may need a new lidswitch or motor coupler. What do you mean you push the drum to one side?

Need the model number???

The grinding sound sounds like the transmission if it is a top load washer.
If that starts to happen that the transmission it is not always worth fixing.
If the washer is 8 years old or more and you have to invest in a trans!!!!!

No the clips can only be some thing that was in a pocket or fell into you laundry basket .
And sounds unrelated to the grinding!
If you plan to keep the washer, better not leave that grinding go!!!!!!!!
Let me know how you do.
Thank You for using our site.
