What causes my frigidaire top load washer to vibrate and make rattling noise during spin cycle


There are springs and bumpers/shocks in the machine that hold the tub. When they break or come loose, the tub wobbles.

Hi
a couple of suggestions, either a spring has broken at the base of the drum, there are 6-8 of these used to keep the drum central, remove the front panel to take a look.
or
The machine is not getting up to full spin speed causing it to wobble, try reducing the load or could be slipping belt.

YES> There are shocks and springs. The springs hold it up and control motion and the shocks absorb the movement and stabilize the basket. Sounds like you may have broken shock.

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.

Two things to check are the Basket Drive Block and the Brake and Drive Tube.

The clutch on the transmission drives the Brake and Drive Tube when in spin mode, the Basket Drive Block transmits the spinning of the Drive tube to the tub.

See the following description of how to pull the cabinet, agitators, drive block and drive tube.

As an aside, you don't need to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the Drive Block Basket Lock Nut. I found that by using a short 10" pipe wrench, opened all the way and hooked over one of the tabs on the nut, and giving it a short whack with a hammer, the nut will come loose.

Check that the basket drive block fits on the drive tube with the two tabs on the drive tube fitted into the slots in the drive block.

Model 23832 Spin cycle doesn't spin


I believe this is the direct drive model. Your clutch is slipping. There is a quick easy fix available that I have used in the past. Remove cabinet from washer. Make sure you know the easy way to do this... 2 screws on top back of washer and 2 holding control panel. cabinet tips toward from of unit and off. Real easy... Remove wire harness from motor under basket. Remove 3 screws holding motor to basket. Remove agitator inside basket. 1 screw holds it in place. Remove entire motor and shaft from unit. Clutch is attached to shaft on top of motor. Pinch spring to remove clean everything with alcohol. Insert #10 washer between cup and spring to give a little more tension. Replace and viola.... all should work well.

Washer leaks during spin cycle


If the machine is leaking then the bolt on the drum need to be tightened. you can acces them by removing the top or rear cover of the machine. If the machine is wobbling it need to be leveled or a shock absorber or spring connected to the drum has come loose or needs to be replaced

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.

Spin cycle


This is a repeat, but maybe the same result.  Remove the front cover (usually two clips between the top and the front, move it around) and check each of the springs that hold the unit to the base.  Have found that just one spring would cause a out-of-balance condition.  When you open the lid, does the basket seem to be leaning one way or the other?  If so, look on the side that shows more than the other.  Also, reach in and grab the inner basket to see if it seems loose.  Have had the basket drive mount break halfway through and caused it to roll really bad.  Let me know what you find out, or if you need futher help.  Jim
