Kenmore Washer 4410 won't spin

I removed the bottom front panel and the first thing I see is that it appears the two shocks have broken away from the bottom mounts. Would this cause the washer to not spin?

Some wires may have come loose. Maybe your belt could have come off. First replace the two shocks carefully seeing how they were fitted in.

My kenmore elite washer has a very loud banging noise when it spins

U will need to remove the washer drum and check the washer drum stablizers and the washer drum bearing, do this to see what is wrong and how far u need to go in this repair.First open the door and spin the inner tub to make sure the tub spins freely, if not you have big problems.

If it does then remove the lower front panel. There are 3 screws along the very bottom of this panel that you can remove and then the panel will come off. Check to make sure the shocks are not cracked or broken under the tub. If not and the unit just recently started shaking a lot, then replace the shocks as they are probably worn out. If it's been shaking since the day you've gotten it and it just seems to have gotten a little worse, then purchase Shake Away pads which are specifically designed for front load washers to sit under the feet of the washer and reduce vibration dramatically.

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not

If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

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.

Broken shock absorbers on front loading Kenmore

Hi, first things first. Your model and serial numbers should be on a sticker somewhere around the door opening. Next check the tub. With your finger,push up on the rim of the tub then rotate the tub a few inches and push up again. Continue through a whole rotation. If the tub moves and make a clicking noise you have a bad drum bearing and the cost to repair is more than the unit is worth. If that's not an issue,then it's probably just the shocks,replacing them should solve the problem. Hope that helps.

Remove the botton front panel and look at both sides towards the bottom. There are mini shock absorbers. Most likely, one is broken. They are only $16.99 each at (part # 131268200). There is also a counterweight on the left side that may be invlolved. I just opened my washer and saw the counter weight laying loose on the floor. Not sure if DIYJim can tackle this job or not............

dc, drop the front bottom panel and make sure the 4 shocks are connected to the tub and bottom panel, then check the front and rear counterweights. They may have loosened up. Remove back panel or top to check the rear counterweight. The top removes by removing the 3 screws in back and it slides off. If all this checks ok then I would suspect the rear bearing wollowing out. back.
