KENMORE SERIES 80 BALANCING PROBLEMS

I HAVE A KENMORE SERIES 80 WASHING MACHINE THAT WON'T SEEM TO BALANCE. IT IS LEVEL SIDE TO SIDE AND FRONT TO BACK, IT IS ON A SECOND STORY FLOOR (NEW HOUSE) BUT HAVE NOT HAD PROBLEMS BEFORE. WE HAVE PUT THE MACHINE ON ABOUT 6 INCHES OF PLYWOOD TO SEE IF IT WOULD PERFORM ANY BETTER BUT NO CHANGE. WHEN WE WERE MOVING THERE WAS A BLACK GASKET LOOKING PIECE THAT CAME OUT FROM UNDER THE WASHER - NOT A BELT OF ANY KIND - BUT MORE OF A FOAM RING ABOUT EIGHT INCHES IN DIAMETER, ANY IDEAS

Wiz, That black piece of foam is just a sound dampening strap, no big deal. This is a hard one, I see a lot of these vibrate when there is a false floor. Here are some things to check: makes sure the front legs are locked with the nut. Check to see that all the springs are attached and the plate is centered, I will attach a photo. Depending on whether the machine is walking or just the tub banging, it could be the drive block for the basket. You will have to remove the cabinet or tip it back to check the springs.

Loud banging noise during spin cycle


If you balanced the machine, the only other problem could be the load itself. Either the load is too great or if washing a single item its falling to one side, tilting the drum and when spinning it will thump. Try even lodes.

WF865 noise when spinning


Washers have to be balanced. Some have balance adjusters either inside the dryer as explianed above or on the bottom to level the washer. try to balance it by turning the bolts slightly or the bottom portion of the washer to level it. Or else they want to shake apart. Also by distributing the clothes evenly so it won';t be all to one side can help. do not tighten the screws all the way. Just tighten them to the point of getting the right balance.

KENMORE SERIES 80 BALANCING PROBLEMS


The only thing I can suggest is to make sure the load is evenly distributed around the circumference of the tub. If you do only light to medium loads, this can occur from time to time. Lift lid as the unit goes into the spin cycle to check. If it is evenly distributed, you may have a support problem.
