Question about Kenmore 43052 Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore fornt loader #43052. It made a loud banging noise in final spin so we stopped it. We restarted it and it did finish one spin cycle. but a slight burning smell occurred. I opend back and belt in good shape and it will turn by hand although large chunk of plastic tun broke off. I repaired holel in plastic tub by gluing piece back (no gaps, one piece fit well) But machine will not agitate or spin. it does drain well though. Help!
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.
