Does this sound like the spider brace on the drum has cracked or is broken? Machine makes a knocking noise while spinning. Everything I have seen online points to that being the cause. If that is the case, I think I will just let this thing self destruct unless it is under warranty.

Call $ears. Kenmore Elite has a ten year warranty on the plastic tub (which includes the bearing) and a lifetime warranty on the stainless steel basket (which includes the spider). You will have to pay for labor, but its a helluva lot less than paying for a new machine. Labor is $172 for an overhaul job code. There may be a helper charge depending on the district rules in your area.

Do you have a receipt? $ears might have your info from when you first purchased it. If not, the tech will just go by the build date on the serial number.

Good luck

You are wrong!!!! $ears has mine under warranty but will only "replace" the metal drum (which includes the spider bracket ) but no bearings AND you HAVE to buy THEIR plastic tub for $400 plus labor. They are a rip off. LG sales their spider brackets separate.....NEVER AGAIN BUYING A KENMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like the tech was a jerk. I would have covered the rear tub.

that's just it. I didn't need the tube just the spider bracket and bearings.

Oh, I get it now. Yeah. That stinks. I wish whirlpool would have come up with a kit for these.

that's just it. I didn't need the tube just the spider bracket and bearings.

I have a universal Tub Seal & Bearing Kit at http://austin.craigslist.org/app/4678481774.html
It will fit on Kenmore Model# 11047088600
Total $60 with S&H through USPS Priority Mail (delivered within 3 business days).
I can send you an Invoice then you can submit payment through PayPal (or just click on the Beer Mug Icon under my Profile to submit payment be sure your mailing address is correct)

Parts...
Spider tub support...
*** I am 99.8% sure this support will fit your machine***
Also this Whirlpool part has been discontinued due to design failure  issues, I
do not know if Whirlpool will be making an upgraded substitute part available or not...
Whirlpool has had numerous Duet failures (and a class action law suit may be pending or at least a recall) resulting in this part failing (cracking, breaking of arms) so the part listed below BEWARE is the old defective part the same one that you have now!!!!!!
The other 3 drum supports types Whirlpool has are LG designs

Other part supplier sites do still have these still in stock.

"It's a gamble at best"
FYI you would have to drill out the 6 holding stainless steel rivets that hold the old support arms to the basket and replace them with stainless steel nuts & bolts to secure the new one.
(I would use some permanent thread lock on the new hardware ie: Lock tite or an equivalent.

Best of luck on your adventure
please let us know how it comes out.

that's just it. I didn't need the tube just the spider bracket and bearings.
If the tub is still within the warranty period and the bearings are out then it is covered under the warranty because the bearings are part of the tub. I had this fight and won. Also if the tech can state that the bad spider is what killed the bearings then I have gotten permission to cover the tub outside of the tub warranty.
