Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
My washer is front loader until resently it has been vibrating/shaking very vigrously sometimes ihave to stop it just because am afarid that it will blowup or some like that what needs to be done to this issue?
I have a 4 417-43142200 that also made a terrible noise when spinning. I found that the counterweight (a piece of curved concrete) had fallen out past the rear pulley and into the bottom of the washer. When the unit was on spin cycle it would wobble and bash against the counterweight. I bolted the counterweight back in place and it was fine. The engineer who designed this part of the machine was not very thoughtful since there is nothing to hold the counterweight captive. If the bolts had been placed further out then the block would have been captive.

The drum mounts to a spindle on the back. On these units, it is common for the tripod mounts for this particular design to crack and break. On almost every call I have had for a terrible vibration on these models, this has been the problem. The remedy is to replace the front and rear tub, as well as the basket. It is also recommended that you replace the drain pump at the same time. Most of this should be covered under at least a parts warranty.
