The cheapest way is to go to an appliance supply store and get touch up paint for the drum (don't forget to bring your model number). Once it hardens it's nearly indistinguishable from the orrigional color and just a tough. If you want to replace the drum, you have to open the console (usually 2 screws in the front or back where it meets the top of the washer) Remove the 2 brass colored clips underneath (this will let the top, front and both sides come off as one assembly). You un-clip the plastic ring at the top of the tub and remove. You pop the top cap off the agitator and remove the bolt underneath so the agitator come off. Lastly, you use a manufacture specific spanner wrench to remove the nut on the top of the tub. The Replacement basket and the spanner wrench are usually availible at local parts stores or from the manufacture on line.

Hello, I've got a 80 series Kenmore top loading washer. I recently had to replace its dogs due to agitation issues (problem fixed) but now not but 2 months later the "washer drum" (?) is hitting...


This is likely the washer wear pads. They are inexpensive and fairly easy to replace. Here is a video that will walk you thru it Washer wear pad replacement Now before fully disassembling check the tub springs and counter weight spring. Sometimes they break or rust out. If they look good then move on to the wear pads.

Can I remove rust from drum with a scrubbie for temporary fix?


I'd use the brush to clean the spots down to bare metal then use something like Rust-Oleum appliance touch up paint (multiple coats) to cover the problem areas.

The Rust-Oleum costs about $4.00 .

In order to get access to the tub, see the following:

In order to get the agitators out, you need to remove the "Spanner Nut" and "Drive Block".

Many instructions call for a special spanner wrench to remove the nut. However,

You don't need a special spanner wrench. (About $20 retail)

I've used a short 10" pipe wrench (About $9 also good for cracking walnuts) hooked around one of the tabs on the spanner nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer (it's soft metal). Put a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap it up with a hammer.

You can then lift the drum out and more easily work on it.

I have a used Kenmore Series 80 dryer & the drum stopped turning


Good day,
Not hard to do but check the 2 rear wheels that support the drum and change at the same time if needed. Inspect the belt tensioner as well.
Here's a good tutorial on the belt change.

I HAVE SEEN MOST MARKS COMING FROM THE DRYERS. AS THEY AGE, THE FELT AIR SEALS ON THE DRUM DETERIORATE AND THE CLOTHES GET PINCHED BETWEEN THE DRUM AND THE BULKHEAD AT THE REAR OF THE DRUM. OTHERWISE CHECK THE HOLES IN THE WASHER TUB IF YOU HAVE A PORCALIN ON STEEL TUB IN THE WASHER.
