I am having a problem with a kenmore elite model 110.23032101 it is a standard whirlpool direct drive system. This machine is shaking starts out fine, but after it ramps up to the full speed the basket starts shaking and washer will walk, this is not the worst I have seen but enough where you can tell something is not right.
I have ran the machine without clothes and it still shakes, it is on my garage floor(cement) and I did check the leveling of the machine. I have pulled the agitator out and just left the inner tub, still does it. I have also ran it without the inner tub and I hear nothing out of the ordinary from transmission.
I also took the inner drum out and rolled it and it looks likes it is not out of round, and the balance ring does not look damaged and still has liquid in it. Is that just water in there?
The counter balance spring and the three other springs are all in great condition and not worn at all. The skate plate also looks like it is brand new and the pads looks perfect and they are situated in the correct positions.
I am stuck and out of ideas. Any suggestions?
Oh I also serviced the brakes and clutch both of those looked perfect. I did have a little play on the brake tube maybe 1/8" up down when removing the drive block. I dont know if this is normal or not, but I never noticed in on other machines but the bottom of the brake tube looks good and not worn down at all (I have seen some where the c-clip is gone from metal worn down).
