Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

90 Series Top Load Washer shakes during spin cycle

My washer worked perfectly until I moved. After it was hooked up in my new place (by a moving guy) it now shakes terribly during the rinse and spin cycle, even if contents are distributed properly inside. I have to sit on it during the cycle for it to finish without it thumping violently. Could something have been shaken loose during the move?

    I have a Kenmore washer 22952 when it is in the spin cycle it bangs hard and is loud, like it is out of balance but the cothes are not to heavy on any side.

    Have you checked to see if the washer is level? It must be level side-to-side and front-to-back. If the heading you used is correct and the this is a Kenmore series top loading washer, the rear legs on this model SHOULD be auto adjusting and can become unadjusted during moving. Check the level of the washer and post back to me. It's not normal to sit on washer to keep it from moving. This can also cause damage to the lid switch.

The Guide Plate underneath is out of alignment,, You might have to call me on this one. The only reason I am sure of this is because when my delivery guys would deliver a direct drive washer such as your, sometimes when the machine is laid down to far on its side, it gets out of alignment. Easy fix,, Just hard to explain.

Kenmore 80 series washer shakes during spin cycle


Check to be sure your washer is level. If it is not then the bottom legs will screw up or down to level it. If that is not what is causing the issue then I would look at the load being uneven. If you move the clothes around in the washer does the shaking stop. That is usually the main cause.

Hope this helps,

Tami

Washer will not stop shaking during spin cycles, we have removed akll shipping bolts


Place a load in the machine use a good level to get machine perfectly level. Now put machine on spin and check the feet. Find the one that is not solid and slowly adjust it until it stops shaking. PS place level on flat top surface and level side to side and front to back.

Making an awful ratcheting noise during aggitation and spin cycles


Under the agitator there is a rachet mechanism that works the agitator. If it is stripped, it will skip until the next good tooth.. when it fails entirely the agitater will stop going back and forth. Its nylon and age along with overloading hastens its dearg.. If you can get the parts you can replace it yourself without difficulty. There is a single bolt in the center of the agitator top . Remove and loft agiyator straight up.

Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle


I have the same kenmore and have experience this before. It is unbalanced. Get a spirit level to check for balance. To rebalance, empty the washer (so it's not heavy), lean over the washer and grab the back, tilt it forward and the auto balancing legs should reposition themselves. Re-check for balance using the spirit level. If still out, adjust the front feet of the washer by screwing the legs up or down (using a wrench). This will cure the problem (unless you have a very unbalanced load of towels for instance). Good luck

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
