Sounds like it may be off balance. First tilt the rear of the washer onto the front legs a few inches (make sure the rear legs come off the ground if even just a few inches.) and then let the washer drop back on its rear legs. This is an auto level feature on many washers. Now use a level on the outer edges on the top of the washer and make sure it is level. Adjust the front feet as necessary. Also make sure you are evenly loading your washer so the tub does not "swing" into the side.

Why tub liner comes off every time I load & unload?


Do you mean front boot assembly? If so, there is a band with a spring on it. that needs to be put back in place. You should call a service tech to have it put back on.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 top loading wash machine that leaks. It is approx 12 years old, model 110.4767290 (canadian). It has a 2 inch crack in the bottom of the plastic tub. I tried filling with expoy...


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.

The numbers following the 110 (which means it's made by Whirlpool) are usually 8 digits. Using the number that you provided, I couldn't find your washer on the Sears site. You will want to verify the number (usually by lifting the lid) and/or check for manuals / parts site from the following Sears site:

http://www.managemyhome.com/

Sears has replacement tubs (at least for my 12 year old top load for about $116.75 (U.S.) but you may be able to get one from Whirlpool for about the same cost. If you can get to the diagrams on the sears site. they often have "Manufacturer Authorized Substitutes) which are Whirlpool numbers.

FOR EXAMPLE, SEE THE SITE FOR OUR WASHER AND YOU'LL SEE EXAMPLES OF PARTS, DIAGRAMS AND COSTS.

My Whirlpool washer leaks when filling. We have located that it leaks from the plastic liner. Therefore leaking water onto floor.


Hi, The plastic liner you are talking about, is it the outer tub? If you could get me a model#, I could look this up for you.
Please let me know if I can help.

Whirpool duet is making a clacking noise on the spin cycle.


Reach inside and see if there is any play to the inner/spin tub (up and down) . Tub may be seperating from mounting and spindle assembly.

Inner basket scrapes on bottom of liner tub during spinn cycle


It sounds like the basket drive block is worn. If it looks like the basket drive block has slid down the brake & drive tube (I believe you're calling it the spindle), it's definitely worn out. When this part is in place it sits on top of the brake & drive tube and won't allow the basket to go lower. To replace this, remove the cabinet to gain access to the the inner basket which you will have to remove. On the top of the brake & drive tube you will see 2 small tabs. Align these with the cutouts on the basket drive block. Mount the drum back on top, and tighten the spanner nut. Reassemble the cabinet and you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!
