Question about Kenmore 24872 Top Load Washer

Kenmore Waher spin cycle out of balance

Kenmore top loading washing machine (Model # 110-28912791), goes out of balance during the spin cycle - even when run on empty. It appears to be in proper balance at all other times. The legs are level. While in the spin cycle, the tub seems to be off balance, shifting towards the back side of the washing machine (when viewed straight on), thus causing it to be off balance. Help...please...

    During high speed spin, even when empty, the washer shakes violently. I checked the 4 suspension absorbers and they seem fine(. All 4 have some free slack between tension on both ends?) the 2 springs on top are fine too. With back panel off the rear bearing seems fine( no grinding at all) and balanced. Looking from front and spinning (empty) it seems out of balance. Finding chew up plastic in washer n further investigation shows a small groove worn in plastic at front of washer. To me it seems as if inner tub isn't balanced in outer tub?

    You might want to make sure that you are not overloading it when it comes to putting your clothes in. When it came to our's doing the same thing, we noticed that this was a huge help. But if nothing else seems to work then you might want to consider hiring a professional to come look at it.

Sounds like your front to back spring is pulling to tight, sometimes you need to replace it and sometimes you can take it off and stretch it. hope this helps

Spins out of balance even emty

This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

Makes a loud banging noise as if the load is underbalanced even through the load is balanced.

HI There
Try this even tho you said it's balanced. Sometimes it looks like but a slight unbalanced can cause this problem.
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
Let me know how this goes and thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

The stem is bent or fractured or the bearing is shot. This is a rebuild job for a techo.

Spin cycle noise problems

It is likely that you have an unbalanced load. Try spinning the machine with only water in it. If there are no noises now, you will need to re-distribute the load. We clothes are heavy!!

check to make sure the machine is properly balanced. an off balance machine will vibrate causing that sound.
