Kenmore 80 series, Drum out of balance

As the drum begins to spin, the wobble becomes worse and gets really bad and I've checked the springs and they look fine. Should I replace the block as mentioned previously? Thanks.

A spring came off under the drum of the washer, and now the inside drim wobbles and shakes and doesn't spin properly....what can we do to correct that....


There should be 2 or more springs that balance the drum.
Also there will be shock absorbers under the drum.
the springs needs to be fixed back (check they are not broken).
Also the dampers need to be checked to ensure they are working.

I overloaded my washer and now when it spins it seems to be off balance. It's really loud and inefficient in getting the water out of the clothes. I don't know anything about electronics and don't really...


You may have knocked the whole machine off balance. Is it a bit wobbly when you lean on it? If so adjust the feet to level it.
Try spinning on empty to get the drum happy again.

I have Kenmore 60 series large capactity washing


There are two or three springs that hold the drum upright and level. They are attached to the motor and the drum base or sides. You have a broken spring. From being overloaded or turning during a last spin cycle it was out of balance and broke a spring. The machine will have to be taken apart to expose the springs. They are about 4-6" long. If the mounts are Ok replace all springs.

Out of balance condition


I had a Fridadaire model and had the same problem. It could be 3 things. 1- the weight came loose that balances the drum. 2- the bracket that is attached to the drum could have cracked. 3. the bearings to the drum have worn out. All of these problems involve taking the washer completely apart. This is big process, but if you have time and patience it worth it.
Is this model belt driven?

Ariston Margherita 2000 "AL109X" very noisy when spinning


To start ensure that machine is well balanced, and that the load is well distributed inside the drum.

If the problem is not balancing, then the most common is a broken drum bearing spider or a bad drum bearing. A symptom of drum bearing problems is the drum having excessive play when you spin by hand.
Also struts and springs must be checked.

Kenmore top loader 25811 Drum is off balance


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.

Tub wobbles terrably in spin mode


Try lifting the inner drum to check if there is any movement between the inner and outer drums, also turn the drum and listen for any grinding or scraping sound from the rear of the drum. Its possible that your bearings have gone out & need to be replaced. The job is far from easy.
