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.

Kenmore 23012 / Clothes still wet after spin cycle


Remove end caps from console (put fingers behind top and pull towards you. small flat head may be required). and the 2 phillips screws behind them. Pull console towards you and up, it wil flip out of the way. Unplug door switch connection on top rear right of cabinet (3 wires). Put flat head STRAIT DOWN into brass looking clips and push forward. They'll pop out. Lean cabinet towards you and shine flashlight inside. Look for oil splatter about 8" up from bottom. If there's oil, then the trans has leaked oil into the clutch and it's slipping. Repl. transmition and clutch assy. If you see oil, it's cheaper to buy new washer. Trans and labor is about 400

Wet clothes at end of spin cycle


sounds like your transmission is not working properly. check your warranty information. (should be in your owners manual) many of the whirlpool made top loaders came with a 5 year warranty on the transmission/gear case

it could be the break above the transmission. it engages what looks like break shoes when the machine is not spinning. if these are worn down to the rivets then it will make this noise. it requires a special tool to replace.0de7df9.jpg

Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle


Have you checked the wire harness ,because the tapping of just 2 wires hitting the cabinet is overlooked alot.The noise just 2 wires makes simulates a hammer knocking inside.If the problem isn't escalating than check to see if your tub support arms are all tight.There are 12 of them.

Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle


To allow for unbalanced loads and reduce vibration in the floor of the house, the outer tub is suspended by various means. Some machines use a heavy rubber ring, others use spiral springs but either of those can, after a heavily unbalanced load, unhang themselves or in the case of the rubber suspension, the rubber tires and rips.
If you remove the back panel (10-12 screws) and look inside while pushing the tub side-to-side, you should be able to find the suspension and inspect it with good light.

Loud banging during spin cycle

This sounds like the brakes have gotten some residue on them and are grabbing way too hard. The banging is the tub stopping too fast and the torque from this makes the tub bang into the cabinet. Just one bang at the end of a spin. Is this correct???
