First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Look at the Machine Base section and you'll see how the springs connect.

Also make sure that the Pads are not broken and are in place.

Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service manuals for these machines.

The tub of my toploading washing machine leans to the front right, It is balanced and leans whether clothes or in it or not. I can spin clothes if I prop lid open and hold tub straight .


The suspension springs have gone out of alignment or the tub holding mechanism is shifted. look throught the bottom to see the fault in the suspension. correct on the mountings.
Even a leaning can come if the motor suspension is out of alignment.This must be centered in and the top door will close evenly.

Tub free hits side of washer when trying to spin


1- Clothes load is not balance. 2- Tube is balanced by several springs from the bottom tube to the chassis. If one of these springs is broken or slipped out the tube will lean to onside causing this problem. Check these out.

Constantly off balance


I have a kenmore elite oasis top loading washer about 3 years old. I took it apart and checked the springs and the rods and the plastic ends that hold the rods in place and all of them look fine. I run an empty load in the washer and it still goes unbalanced on the spin cycle. My water bill has tripled due to the fact that every load takes 3 to 4 washings. I need help please!

Sides vibrate during spin causing a lot of noise and machine moves. could it be out of balance?


1- Clothes are not balance inside the tube. Try to rebalance the clothes when it happens. It usually happens when towers leaning on on side when water level selector not set appropriately. 2- Try to level the washer by adjusting the leg screws at the bottom of the washer. 3- It make a lot of noise since the whole washer moving against the floor. When it spin only the tube then it won't be like that.

I have Kenmore 60 series large capactity washing


There are two or three springs that hold the drum upright and level. They are attached to the motor and the drum base or sides. You have a broken spring. From being overloaded or turning during a last spin cycle it was out of balance and broke a spring. The machine will have to be taken apart to expose the springs. They are about 4-6" long. If the mounts are Ok replace all springs.

My Kenmore front load washer just bgan to goes out of balance


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Making a loud noise when on the spin cycle and not balanced


It could be a drum spring has broken or stretched too far, there is too much of a heavy load in the drum, or the bearing needs replacing.
