This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

Where do i find the drain plug on whirlpool duet washer

You have to be more specific. Is the machine not draining? It drains under the drum which has a tendency to clog over time from lint etc. There is a catch screen but that can become clogged also. You can tilt the machine forward to access the bottom. On the right side you'll see the black drain hose. If there is water in the machine, be careful tilting it forward as the water may run out. If you want to access the drain from inside, you have to remove the drum. As the drum has a tendency to stick to the shaft, you halve to use a piece of 2"X4" and a scissor jack or bottle neck hack on the shaft to lift it off of the shaft. To access the drum you first need to tilt the top back off first. They is two spring clips located approx. 6 inch in on either side under the top piece. Use a narrow putty knife to locate them and push them in and up. The back of the top is hinged so be careful tilted it back. when you push on the clip lift up on the top part of the machine at the same time. Good luck.

Sounds fixable, the fill tube may be out of place or kinked. It will still take a service call to see what's going on. Sometimes on top loaders the drum slips out of place, because a spring has jumped off or such, and the fill tube misses the drum a bit. Check to see if the drum is centered.

Hi, there - my Hotpoint Ultima WT960 has started leaking. I've had a look underneath and have found the cement block at the bottom of the drum is weton top, as though the leak is at the front of the drum...

Carefully examine the door seal for holes or tear, as this sounds like the reason for leak, if o/k, then could be leak from outer drum front due to crack or hole.
If it is the seal,, then it is fixable, if you are a competent D.IY,er.

I have a 1995 Hyundai excel, and brake fluid is coming out of rear brake. I haven't taken wheel yet to see if I can fix it. But looking underneath car I can see Floyd coming out of rear drum housing. Is...

If you have rear brake drums, (I think you do) it will be a wheel cylinder, or a broken brake line. The wheel cylinder is inside of the drum, and the line that goes to it will be on the inboard side.
Fixable by a novice? Hard to say, as you need to be able to bleed the brakes, after replacing the part.

Xerox Phaser 8560 - error code: 07,010.43:205458

This is from the service manual. If you remove both sides and home everything it should come ready.

The 7,007.49, 7,008.41, 7009.42, and 7,010.43 errors indicate that the
Printhead was unable to tilt normally on its axis. Possible causes include:
??  The printer was powered off in the middle of a cleaning cycle and the
Wiper Blade has frozen to the Printhead.
??  A Drum Maintenance Camshaft lobe is broken and holding the Drum
Maintenance Kit’s oil roller against the Drum when it should be retracted
to its home position.
??  Process Drive not being aligned correctly.
??  A damaged Printhead Restraint.
??  Ink spilled in the Roll Block preventing proper Printhead motion.
??  Ink or other debris under the Printhead preventing proper motion.
??  The Wiper Assembly not being aligned correctly or ink spilled in the wiper
??  The Head Tilt Gear not being homed correctly.
??  The X-Axis Motor nose cone not being installed correctly.
??  The ferrite torrid on the Printhead interface cable has slipped behind the
Printhead causing the Printhead to bind when it tilts backwards.
??  The black plastic shroud on the back of the Printhead is snapped off and
binding the Printhead when it tilts back.
After servicing the printer, manually set the following assemblies to their
home position before powering on the printer. See Section 6 for
instructions on setting these components to their home positions.
??  Printhead (tilted forward and disengaged from Printhead tilt gear)
??  Head Tilt Gear (disengaged from Process Drive train; arrows on left
frame point to each other)
??  Wiper Assembly (bottom of travel)
??  Process Drive (holes on Transfix Camshaft and Drum Maintenance
Camshaft line up with marks on frame, large gears within assembly
line up with holes in Process Drive housing)

Use the tilt adjustment in the menu system or if that doesn't go far enough, move the metallic object, (loudspeaker etc) further away from the screen.

Phaser 8200DP error 07,002.44:40280 Can you identify this fault for me and tell me how fixable it is?


Verify process motor operation with the Process Motor diagnostic test. Also exercise processes run with the process motor; transfix, drum maintenance and head tilt. This can be caused by the power control board. The process motor may have more than one task initiated. Reset all solenoids and the pressure roller prior to cycling power.
