HE4t King Size Washer Balance Problem

My Kenmore HE4t washer just developed a severe balance issue. I've confirmed that it's level and the floor is solid. At any spin speed and with just about any clothes / towels, it goes jumping across the floor and banging against my dryer. Any suggestions?

    Yes, the shock absorbers are either broken (e.g., broken plastic head) or disconnected. Is it best to replace all four? The washer is only about 2 years old. Also, how do the shock absorbers disconnect? Thank you for your help!

How do i do is showing;tech. fault F53 and F63

F53 indicates that it is the issue of speed sensor. You can unplug the washer then plug it back in and set sanitize cycle. As soon as it begins,cancel the cycle. Then try any cycle again and see what happens. These washers have a severely sensitive balance system.If the load is at all off balance,it should at least attempt to get revving up. If it does f53 again, check to make sure it is firmly balanced/leveled onto the floor firmly.Try again and if it fails, please contact the Manufacturer

How do you reverse the front door on a Kenmore HE4t washer?

The Kenmore HE4T washer does not have a reversible door. The matching dryer would have a reversible door.

Some newer washers do have a reversible door but it is still a very small number of washer that allow you to reverse the door.

You can not reverse the door on an HE4T washer.

Miele W1926 washer shakes more then usual when spinning at low speeds. Could it be problem with shocks? How to open the machine? Thanks

I'd start simply.

They do move over time and if the floor is not even the machine will be out of balance.

If you have not done so check the machine is still level and all feet are solidly on ground.

Try to shake the machine by hand and see if is solid on the ground. There are leveling legs under the unit you can adjust.

Hope this helped. Please rate answer if it does.
