Kenmore 90 Series Washer M/N 110.22922100 makes banging noise during spinning
Posted 04 July 2012 - 09:07 PM
So, I guess the question I have is how do I get the washer so that I can take the basket out of the tub and hopefully locate the source of our noise? Conversely, are there thoughts about what could be causing that noise if its not something between the tub and basket?

I took the washer housing off this morning just to get a better look at the surroundings of the tub to see if there was something loose, etc. All of the springs appear to be in place and relatively 'springy'. I did remove the agitator as well and it appears that the part that the tub nut attaches to, which I believe is the drive block, has a portion missing (or there is a notch left there intentionally.
Doing an eye inspection of the outer tub, I can't see anything stuck in between the tub and the basket.
Any ideas on where to begin (other than the local appliance store ) would be greatly appreciated. Or if you guys think this is a lost cause, let me know and I'll start shopping!

The drive block is supposed to have that notch taken out of it. If the noise is that big bang at the end of the cycle, that means your brake probably has some buildup on there causing it to stop too hard.
Thanks for the info on the notch. Eases my mind a bit. Unfortunately, the banging is throughout the cycle so its not just the brake, though that would fix that issue. So, its starting to sound like multiple issues.
You've come this far, might as well have the basket out of there for a good look-see. You'll need a special tool to get the spanner nut off.
Any place other than an appliance parts store that I can get that spanner tool?

It's a special wrench made for automatic clothes washers
