tapping noise during spin
Model Number: 110 20912991
Brand: Sears Kenmore
I have read other post and have ideas of what is wrong, but I am trying to be sure I am on the right track. During the spin cycle the Kenmore will get a fast tap tap tap tap tap. (not so bad that it is bang,bang and walking the washer on the floor) If I redistribute the clothing it may or may not come back, but more often than not, the tap tap tap tap returns. I suspect the 3 suspension springs and do I need the counter balance spring also?
I saw another post about pads underneath, that require the drum, basket etc.. being removed. HOW do I know if I need the 3 pads? What else do I need to know to determine if I do? And I do not have that spanner wrench to undo the tub.... could channel lock pliers be used?
I have not taken anything apart, nor order any parts until I know what I need to do. The Mrs wants the washer working.
