Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care Heavy Duty 80 Series washer

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, I just joined this forum since I am currently trying to get my 103-yr-old grandmother's house (and appliances) in good order... Her Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care 80 Series washer works fine (I already repaired cycle select knob, if anyone needs help with that... it isn't easy and there is no access from back, don't even bother removing the control panel...), but there is something weird going on with spin cycle. It thumps as if it is "unbalanced" but no matter what I do, and how many clothes I remove, it doesn't spin out right. I noticed there is a small hole in the bottom of the agitator that goes directly down in to the "tumbler" or bowl part of washer. This hole can be matched up (using precision size screwdriver) with a hole in the tumbler. Seems to me there is a screw missing but I can't find an owner's manual online. Does anyone have info about this hole and whether or not that might be the source of the problem? Thanks a bunch and MANY MORE questions to follow... I've got a house full of out-dated appliances, lol! If anyone collects vintage appliances, there are some real beauties here as well, just get in touch.
