Kenmore washer series 70 shakes wildly during spin during cycle

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 a maytag and its spinning wildly and the small clear hose internally pops off and has flooded my laundry room. The basket can be moved very easily when its not on...any suggestions?

    About a week ago the machine got real loud during the spinning cycle then today it was spinning and the tub started bouncing of the side of the machine and all the springs are still attached

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

Water won't drain


This is usually caused by the lid safety switch. When the switch malfunctions, The washer believes the lid is open and the washer will not spin or empty. The switch is intended to prevent injury during the spin cycle. The timer could be bad but it is usually the switch..

90 Series Top Load Washer shakes during spin cycle


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 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.
