My kenmore front loading washer model 417.4304.2300 has a problem. The tub does not seem to be attached to anything and spins unevenly, off center, resulting in an extremely loud rattling noise as it bangs againt all sides. It does not spin all the water out of the clothing and leaves water in the bottom. I removed the lower front, drained, cleaned and reassembled the pump. I removed the back plate and the belt is attached, the counterweight is in place and the lower springs as I see them are attached. I noticed white plastic or nylon chips on the bottom. I leveled the diagonals and it still has the problem shaking and rattling like a 52 Studebaker. THe full data is below:

You have had a major failure of the spider arms that support the spin basket.

Depending on your warranty the stainless spin basket and spider arm support assembly maybe covered under the manufacture warranty, but you would have to have an authorized Sears warranty servicer do the repairs and you would have to cover the labor charges that might be more than you want to put into the machine.

You can't see the Drum Support Spider unless you open the Tub assembly.

HOLY MOTHER OF RICHARD NIXON!! I worked on nuclear subs and reactor assembies but I think it would be easier to buy a new washer after watching those and looking at the diagrams!!!
