Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
Check springs that the drum hangs from and supports that help hold it up. I replaced a shock absorber and a spring myself and I am a woman with fibromyalgia. Not a hard fix. Take of the back panel and there should be two springs hanging from the top and two shock absorbers supporting the drum from the bottom. Grab them and make sure they are completely attached. Then call your local Maytag or Sears for parts. When the washer is off balance it wont spin or will not spin enough. When these parts go out it will bang around. More that likely it is the shock absorbers from the bottom. Good Luck

you could possible have something in your pump. You can clean it out by removing the bottom panel to expose the pump and unscrew the pump filter. Be sure to have some towels and a pan ready to catch some water. If that does not solve the problem you may have either a cracked tub support or something between the inner and outer tubs. Both are major repairs that take several hours to perform. So lets keep our fingers crossed that its just a little something in that pump. Lots of luck to you, and I hope this helps you.

Most likely the inner tub support is broken. I have replaced mying once the whole assmbly was available from Sears for $150.00. However, I was in today to get my second replacement and Sears informed me they will not sell the replacement to customers only authorized Sears repair personel. I am going to call customer service on Monday. If I do not get the part there will be one less Sears customer in the world. Bottom line it is poorly built and Frigidaire (who makes the washer) and Sears need to stand behind their product.
