Question about Washing Machines
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
Kenmore series 80 spin cycle noise
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. Catriver
