We have a Kenmore model 417.42042100 stackable washing

Customer Question
We have a Kenmore...

We have a Kenmore model 417.42042100 stackable washing machine which spins abnormally fast when finishing the wash and also has been getting grease on the clothing. Can this be fixed?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The model number is ***** one I gave you and the date on the machine is 9/02

Contractor's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the Appliance Expert more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just if the machine is repairable?

Unfortunately I can tell you right now that this isn't going to be an issue worth fixing and it's time for a new washer. What is happening is that your main rear tub bearing is going. That will cause the washer to sound like a jet engine so it sounds like it's about to take off like it's spinning way too fast. In addition to that, it's the only thing that causes great to get on the clothing. The reason it's not worth fixing is because you need a new shaft and bearing to fix the issue. The shaft is part of the inner basket, the bearing is part of the outer tub. You must replace both the inner basket and outer tub and parts alone will be over $800. It also requires quite a bit of work to replace these parts so if you had a technician repair your unit, you'd be looking at about $1000-1100 total.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
