Excessive drum vibration


Yes, look into trading in the Kenmore for one of only two manufacturers that employ a dynamic balance system built into the washer drum. Samsung and LG both use this dynamic balance system that balances the load while it is in motion. They also use a vibration sensing system to modify the time and speed of the spin cycles to minimize any vibration that might still be present. LG has this available on only their upper level models while Samsung's VRT is available on most all models. I believe that both of these manufacturer's are available from Sears.

My washing machine spins so hard (even at 900 rpm) that starts "walking" away and makes a really strong noise


Actually, it's not so much spinning 'hard' as it is out of balance. Either the self-leveling damping fins have come out of their retainer, or on some models, one of the retainer straps may have broken. This out-of-balance condition should be corrected ASAP as it could damage the transmission seals and eventually the top transmission bearing. If the top seal starts leaking, your clothes will be covered with black grease, and we sure don't want that to happen.

Machine is usually very noisy ( like it was out of balance, but isnt) 90 percent time very noisy in the final expell of water, also some oil on the floor under center of machine ? this is a top load...


oil on the floor means your gear box is leaking
if it has been leaking. if it has been leaking for a while, it may have done major damage,and would be cheeper to replace the machine second hand than to fix.
if noise is happening while you are pumping , it may have a bra under wire or small coin in the water pump.
if it is sounding like it is out of balance it may have a support or spring broken or unhooked
as the tub is usually suspended by springs

HE4t kenmore washer rubber drum gasket not attatched.


Removed the top and Front reinstalled the counter balance. the rubber gasket has a 1" tear in it which I patched with a rubber tire patch for now. Two of the locking nuts for the leveling of the machine were loose it went out of level causing the machine to rock and probably caused the counter balance to loosen up. My daughters come in from collage and over load it on weekends which adds to the machines demise. All have been warned.

Washer leaking from bottom


Take the front panel off of the washer, and run it through a cycle. Watch to see where the leak is coming from. Also, pay attention to the drain in the wall when it is in spin/drain. If this has a blockage in it, it might be backing up causing water to come back out of it.

If you see no leaks the next time you run it, it's possible that it splashed over while spinning because of the off balance load and may not happen again unless it becomes off balance again.
