Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer

1 Answer

When tub spins it sounds like it is hitting metal. I have leveled it by putting plywood under it. How do you access the front? I've looked in the back and it seems to be okay.

No, you need to cut a hole. Usually an access panel is provided during the initial installation, either in the ceiling from downstairs or in the other side of the adjacent wall. But it's pretty easy to add one. After you cut a nice rectangular hole, you can cover it with a piece of painted plywood that has a trim piece attached to the plywood. The plywood is held in place with a couple of screws. When you remove the panel, the trim stays attached to the plywood. When you place the panel in the hole, the trim covers the gap between the drywall and the plywood.

Shakes violently during spin cycle from back to


I had this problem with my front loader as well. It is probably the mounts or "level shocks" on the bottom of the unit under the tub. I have a Kenmore by Frigidaire and had to replace the "level shocks". I only paid about $43.00 and was not that hard to put on. Look under your machine and see if the shocks are connected to the tub. Check under the top panel also to see if that particular model has mounts up there too.

What do you advise I put under my washer and dryer? I need to slide them out service but I don't want the leveling legs to scratch the tile floor which is limestone and scratches easily.


I put a piece of 1/4" plywood in front of the legs, stand on the plywood and lift the front legs onto the wood. Slide the machine forward until the back legs hit the wood and tip it up on the back and on to the wood. Cart it away from there if that is necessary.

Violent shaking on spin cycle


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

In the final rinse spin my washer makes a horrible sound like metal hitting metal. It does this with all washes. Could it be permanently off balance?


Hi, check leveling of washer, with spirit level, after leveling, put both hands on washer, and try to rock it, side to side, front to back, there shouldn't be any play, (movements) it's possible that you have a broken spring, you will have to open washer to check, can you? if not let mechanic check. good luck.

Washer machine is shaking terrible during the high speed spin


Alot of times with front loader machines they will shake at high speed even if the machine is level. The floor may not sturdy enough. You can put a piece of 3/4" plywood or something like that under you machine. I know putting plywood under your machine is not the best looking thing, but it should help the shaking. The product just needs to to sturdy.
