Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

Most of the time such noise while the tub is spinning is due to you are likely looking at a bad seal and bearing. If the noise is a knocking sound, it's more likely a suspension or out of balance condition.

Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Out of balance even with tub empty. can i get to


I assume it is a top load model. In which case the back does not come off. Some recent models had a problem with the inner tub (balancing ring on the top of it) going out of balance, and even coming loose from the basket drive. You will need the Whirlpool spanner wrench to remove the tub, or at least tighten the spanner nut if it has come loose. This means removing the case completely. I have only on one occasion seen the tension spring (from transmission to rear of case) break. More than likely it is the inner tub.

Spinning is out of balance even when there are no clothes in the washer


Most has a balance ring built onto to the tub, make sure thr balance ring is not damaged, It is normal for the tub to shake in the spin cycle with nothing in washer

Inside the washing machine "tub" there is a black scummy ring at the top....can't get rid off. Seems like its a rubber ring that is disintegrated.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


If you look at the section for the Agitator and Tub, you should see a part called the Tub Seal. This could be what is disintegrated.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and Tub Ring in order to get to it.

Sears has part numbers for either the complete tub ring and gasket or just the gasket.

Kenmore Oasis washer model 110.27032600; trapped hidden water


when you tipped the washer was the drain hose still attached? and if so was the drain hose elevated? most top load washers will have an amount of leftover water in the bottom of the tub. with the drain hose off and the washer tipped towards the rear you should lose any excess water. also try to open the top of the agitator to see if there is any water trapped there. hope this helps....

Unstable tub


There are springs inside the unit that stablize the tub during spin. If the springs are not attached correctly the tub will be off balance. Sometimes the Balance Ring loses it's fluid due to a crack or leak and the washer will spin off balance. THis requires a service tech to dissemble the machine.

You need to pull the machine out and tilt it back to look at the pump on the right side. Need to remove carefully using a trash bag to contain the water. Then to examine for debris in the impeller. The second part is too remove the washplate by popping the center cover and removing the 7/16 bolt. Then to grasp the basket and lift sharply on it to pop out the washplate enough to remove. In the center you will see some phillips screws to remove, not the position of the pieces and line them up for reference. Next notice the tabs attaching the tub ring to the tub and remove the tub ring after loosing the recirculate hose clipped at the left rear corner. No with some patience the basket will lift out allowing access to a cover held in by two screws. You want to remove and inspect for debris and soda change.

Brass cotter pins an plastic catch tubes???? Kenmore washer 110.92597210


This is an easy one to solve. Those are moving pins , when in transport. When it is delivered, the delivery people simply just pull on some straps and the pins fall in the cup. You need to keep these when moving washer to put back in, so not to damage anything.

There are a few things that can cause this issue.
1. The counter balance spring broke or the mounting hole for the spring rusted through.
2. One or more snubber pads may have come off.
3. The balance ring may have come loose from the basket or the ring has been damaged and the fluid has leaked out..

Start by removing the shell as follows:
A.) The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
B.) With console lifted you will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
C.) There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
D.) Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

1.) The counter balance spring is located in the bottom rear. It should be attached between the cabinet and a bracket on the tub.
2.) Inspect snubber and corner pads. May be brown or white in color.

3. Remove tub ring by pushing down then lifting each locking tab.
Inspect balance ring for proper fit and any cracks. By moving/shaking ring you should hear liquid sloshing around.

Kenmore top loading washer model 110-9259220 90 series has a very slow leak


Once you have the console open and the cabinet removed, take off your tub ring (the white plastic cover over basket) and you agitator. Unfortuneately, you're right there is a special tool for removing the 4 notched nut. I would check with my local appliance part store or order it from the manufactures web site. I belive they call it a spanner wrench. After that, your basket will lift out.
