Question about Washing Machines
My kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during the spin cycles. I took it apart a few months ago and could not see anything wrong or broken. Put it back together and it did not shake anymore, until last week. I took it all apart again, saw nothing wrong again, no springs missing or broken, etc.... I put it back together. It still shakes and walks across the room wildly during the spin. It is quite level. I literally have to sit on top to keep it from moving around. I noticed that the tub moves very easily from side to side and front to back by hand, but it may have always been that way. It doesn't shake when the tub is empty spinning, but with a few items or a full tub, it shakes wildly. It is a model 110.92272100 serial #CC0885890. Suggestions? Thanks.
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
