Thanks. Yes there are 4 small cracks towards the center of the stator. Should stator and rotor be changed together? These two parts seem to be a precise match so maybe the cracks in the stator made it slightly out of round? Also hear like a chatter when it began its spin cycle. Could that binding during spin cycle cause tub to become unbalanced?

Just wondering if you got my last reply?
Don't want to overstay my welcome so I'll try to be brief. Do you think it might be worth replacing suspension springs and hardware (about $45) and see if that might solve problem. They do seem kind of loose. As far as sensor goes, there were no broken parts or the like inside the washer and as I mentioned, the tub spins very smoothly with no play when I remove the rotor. I located genuine Kenmore stator and rotor for $93 ea. through a contact. Your final thoughts are greatly appreciated
