Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore front load washer. It sounds like there is a loose part or something inside the tumbler. With each ratation something is hitting something. You can mannual turn the tumbler and hear that somethign is loose. The washer still washes but will not spin fast. It starts to spin (you can hear the loose part still) then it stops and tries the other direction and never actually spins fast. Clothes end up clean but really wet.
It sounds like it could be one of a couple things. It could be the pulley that attaches to the back shaft of the basket has come loose and is hitting on the tub, you would have to take the back off the machine and look at the pulley to tell.
The rear bearing in the tub has gone bad and the inner basket is rubbing on the outer tub. To find out reach inside and see if you can move the stainless steel tub up and down, if you hear a clunking when you do this or it has a lot of movement independent of the outer tub the bearing is bad
Something has broken off of the tub and is moving around inside between the tubs. No way to find out unless you take it all apart.
The second two are something that are very time consuming repairs.
Let me know if you have questions.
