Noticed plastic slivers in the drum and under the rubber boot.Is the from the drum being unbalanced

Could be that the 'spider' mount for the drum is broken and the drum is catching on the surrounding plastic outer drum.

We have a kenmore washer HE11045862400 . It is 7 years old. Excellent condition on the out side. We have notice it making a loud noise when it is in the spin cycle . Machine at times moves . It cost us...


Your drum is going unbalanced with the load.

Either you do have an unbalanced load but more likely is that the dampers on the underside of the drum have failed. (they are like shock absorbers).

Normally there are springs at the top the suspend the drum and on the underside there are dampers.

There normally are 2 dampers attached to the drum and the frame.

They are accessed by tipping the machine onto its side.

However the machine is heavy and make sure you disconnect power and water if you want to investigate.

Cost of new dampers are around 50 each.

I took my basket out because of an unbalancing problem and water is trapped inside of the basket. The water will not come out. Will this cause my unbalancing problem?

Normally excessive shaking etc is caused by 3 things.
1) Unbalanced load. 2) Brocken spring that suspend drum. 3) Dampers under drum lost damping.
I would expect 3 as likely cause if machine works ok except for when spinning.

Describe your Kenmore 24032 \ 24036 Top Load

MAke sure that the cothes are not unbalancing the tub. Iv seen this happen where the clothes are unbalancing the tub and it moving around and the when the water for the rinse is coming out its not getting in the tub its splashing on the top of the tub ring due the the unbalanced spin. does this happen when you wash a heavy load? do you notice it not doing that when you washer a light load?
