Customer Question

Second opinion] - Hello. You just helped me fix my cooktop so I am hoping you can help me with our washing machine. :-) My husband ordered 3 washing machine suspension springs thinking that might solve the problem. They took 2 weeks to come in and it didn't help a bit. The machine is a Kenmore model 110.28922790. The issue is that during the spin cycle there is a loud knocking as it's off balance. Any help would be most appreciated as we have been washing clothes in the bath tub for 2 weeks. Please let me know if you have time to help today. Thank you.

I originally sent this to someone who helped us with our oven. He was unable to figure out what was wrong with our washer so I need another opinion. An update is we have replaced the 3 suspension springs and pads. Unfortunately, we still have the same issue during the spin cycle of our washer. I have attached a video. Thank you. Please let me know if you can help.

That sounds like the transmission is trying to agitate and spin at the same time. I believe the transmission will need to be replaced. If you do a load of wash, does it come out all twisted up and in knots?

No nothing is twisted

From the sounds on the video, I would recommend the transmission be replaced. Would you like a link for that?

Just looked it up and that's $160. I'm hesitant to pay that much if it could Be something else.
