I have a 12 year old Kenmore front load washer (417.42042100) I'm working on, the customer tells me it has always been a noisy machine from day one.........but now in the final spin there is a ton of racket like the basket is banging against something in the rear.
I checked the shocks and they are not broken, and the unit seems to be fine until high gear on the final spin. I did the check for a broken spider like in the video the Samurai put together,....mine does have some play, but not like the one in the video. Any thoughts?
Add on comments: The big pulley on the drum has little or no play from the rear and with the belt off both the large pulley and motor spin free with no noise.
