4 yr old Kenmore Elite HE when in spin cycle it makes a whining sound like a button is inside the tub.

Could be a bad bearing in the back or lots of lint somewhere causing frictions, Straighten out a metal clothes hanger and stick it around the edge, if lint starts coming out then maybe that's the problem there

My kenmore 800 series has a problem during the spin cycle. more often than not the machine bangs all over the place. i redistribute the wet clothing multiple times so it spins in balance. but all the time....

unplug the machine,remove the two phillips screws that hold down the top console,flip up the console,with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,just stick the screw driver in the hole and on top of the clip and push back towards the wall and the clip will release,in between the clips you'll see the lid switch,a white plastic harness connector,unplug that then open the lid,grab the frame pull back and up and remove the frame of the washer,look at the bottom rear of the frame and the tub,you should see a spring hanging there,the hole that it was connected to rotted out,you need to drill a new hole and connect the spring to it,that spring keeps the machine from bouncing all around like it is

Bangs around when spinning

You most likely have a broken strut, or two. These are located in the bottom of the washer and can be inspected / accessed by removing the screws from the bottom of the front panel. The front access panel is seamed below the door trim and when the screws are removed you will have to pull the bottom of the panel forward slightly and allow it to drop down. The struts are a little tricky to replace and are usually held in with dowel like pins both to the tub and the base of the machine. The pins have a locking tab that will need to be pressed in to allow you to slide them out. You may have to tap them lightly with a hammer to get them to pop out after you press the tab in and start sliding them out of position.
DO NOT run the washer until you have replaced the struts as you may crack the outer tub and have a huge repair expense on your hands.
Good luck! Hope this helps you!

Kenmore Elite Washer (He3t) front load

The bearing in the duet is attached to the outer rear tub of the washer. You have to remove the whole rear half of the outer tub. Take off the back and you will see all the screws around the tub where they attach together. you have to buy the whole rear half too. They wont let you replace just the bearings.

Tub bangs and seems to be spinning out of round

One of the support arms on the back of the spin basket (stainless steel tub) is broken and causing it to spin in the fashion you describe. The only fix is to replace the spin basket. Using it in its current condition will cause serious damge to the outer tub shell. Let me know if you decide to replace it or need assistance locating a replacement tub. I can assist you in how to disassemble the washer and how to reinstall a new tub. Sorry...I wish this was better news.
