Suspension plate


Hi,

The suspension plate should be loose and float between the frame and base. The pin you saw was a shipping pin, they usually are caught in a little plastic cup attached to the base but sometimes fall to the floor, this is normal too. The tub being loose is normal for the top, it is held down by the springs below the tub but nothing on top. By a loud noise, what kind of noise is it? If it is a very loud ratcheting noise when it slows down then the basket drive(spin tube) and block need to be replaced. If it is a growling noise then that is pump and may be normal if the basket is not spinning. If this is the case look very close for an article of clothing caught between the tub and basket.

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty 60 series Washer. The agitator is out of balance, so I took it apart to find the counterweight spring was not attached to anything. Where does it attach too, it is already...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

You should be able to see where the springs attach by looking at the base diagram.

Following also is the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDF on how the transmissions work but it also has a good diagram of where the springs attach.

I don't believe that the counterweight spring attaches to the brake.

The sections on machine base or tub should give you a decent diagram of where the springs go.

Rubber lining all 'twisted'? on front loading LG washer -- the washer was moved down the stairs by someone -- now the rubber appears all twisted and not lying flat like it was before. Do I need to remove...


Sounds like the suspension spring or springs have become detached, or the suspension legs have become dislodged.
Redmove the top to check for detached spring, if o/k, then check underneath the washer, and see if the suspensions are o/k.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.,

Kenmore washer shaking itself to death.


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.

Drum out of balance


There are a few things that can cause this issue.
1. The counter balance spring broke or the mounting hole for the spring rusted through.
2. One or more snubber pads may have come off.
3. The suspension springs may have stretched or broke.

Start by removing the shell as follows:
A.) Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
B.) With console lifted you will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
C.) There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
D.) Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

1.) The counter balance spring is located in the bottom rear. It should be attached between the cabinet and a bracket on the tub.
2.) Inspect snubber and corner pads. May be brown or white in color.

3.) Inspect suspension springs.

Suspension pads? where are they do you have a good diagram?


most suspensions on machines use 2 springs on top of the drum and 2 suspension legs on the bottom. ( similar to a car shock absorber) just make sure the bottom concrete counter weight is not loose , this will cause violent a shake
