Kenmore 700 series washing machine

Bought washer and dryer about a year and a half ago, currently out of 1 year warranty. Over the last month on spin cycle the whole washer shakes violently, with pressure on front seems to lessen, but will not go away, I tried shifting clothes on inside, no change, it worked fine up to this point. I also checked the level both horizontally and depth, adjusted feet, but no change. With lid slightly open I can see the inner tank appears off balance. Sears wants $260 just to come out for inspection, any suggestions before I make the call. thanks for the help (Kenmore 700 series washing machine)

    I have the same problem with mine. It seems like the springs are gone/broken/disconnected on the sides of the tub so it cannot stabilize itself.

    brand new Kenmore 700 series but the inner tub hits the wall during the spin and makes an extremely loud noise. I think it is off balance but the unit is leveled.

Check to see on the top of the basket if there is a balance ring it will look like a large doughnut if it has one and if it is loose or if the fluid in the ring has leaked out then this will cause the out of balance while in spin let me know if i can help 276 523 4434

Our Kenmore Top Load Washer series 800 is not working properly. When you set the Control Cycle knob to start a normal load it agitates instead of filling up with water rinses instead of stopping the load...


We bought our Series 800 Washer (and dryer) in 08/2009. My wife has never been happy with them. It is off warranty now 10/5/2010. We have always had Kenmore... but she hates this set.
We are having the exact same problem with this washer. The current problem is on the regular cycle when it gets to the spin segment it does spin and all the water is removed HOWEVER just before it shut off it fills with rinse water.
I'll bet any money they are made in China. Looking for a solution on the web. Sears is no help.

periodically this has happened in a white sheet wash in my kenmore front loader series 417. we ran the washer empty with washer cleaner and blackish water was ejected from the pump. Another site suggests mildew under the drum . I am wondering if some oil from the unit is leaking in on a high spin cycle where the load is too full.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!


Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
