Kenmore Washer 417.42052100 loud spin and grease around tub pulley pully
Posted 21 April 2011 - 03:00 AM
One day the belt fell off the pulley, so i took off the back, put the belt back on, noticed some grease around the back of the tub, but just shrugged and moved on.
The washer worked again, hooray! but the sound was still pretty bad, so i just took to turning the machine off when it got to the final spin and started making the noise...clothes were dryish enough to put in the dryer and everything was fixed for the moment. I life with 3 roommates that don't follow instructions so after a couple weeks the belt fell off again and still makes a lot of noise.
I tried turning it on with the back off (without a load inside) and everything seems to run square, nothing shaking or hitting the side or moving around at all. I am afraid to put anything in it and give it a try, lest the belt flies off and attacks me, but I want to know what is going on so bad! My gut tells me it's in the grease. There is black grease splattered all over the back of the tub and its surroundings. Thoughts? Should I investigate with clothes inside the washer?
The shocks seem fine. How much should the tub move when you push it around with your hand? Everything seems pretty springy in all directions.

If that is the problem, is it fixable?

I have a fear of the belt flying off and whacking me in the face...
