Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Replace shock Hi, We have a 2 years old Kenmore HE2 (46462). I think the shocks are goner. The spin cycle shakes really bad. How easy is it to replace the shocks? Do I need to remove the drum and rest of the other stuffs to replace 3 shocks on the bottom of the washer? Also, do I need any special tool to uncompress the shocks? Thanks, jeio

    Do you know if I can jack up the drum or hang it from the top then replace the shocks?



    Or do I need to remove everything?

No special tools are required. also remove the top of washer and check the 2 springs that are holding from above,as faar as acessing the should have a removable back panel, sometimes an opening on bottom of machine

Shakes violently during spin cycle from back to


I had this problem with my front loader as well. It is probably the mounts or "level shocks" on the bottom of the unit under the tub. I have a Kenmore by Frigidaire and had to replace the "level shocks". I only paid about $43.00 and was not that hard to put on. Look under your machine and see if the shocks are connected to the tub. Check under the top panel also to see if that particular model has mounts up there too.
