Vibration in Kenmore 90 series after reassembly
« on: September 20, 2013, 01:52:06 PM »
I took apart my Kenmore 90 series a couple months back and replaced a worn out clutch. I then tested the agitation and spin cycle and all works as expected. However once the spin cycle gets up to speed it seems to have a vibration in it.

I uploaded a short video to YouTube showing what I mean. Any ideas? Or is this just maybe a situation where it shouldn't do that once there's clothes in there?

The shaking doesn't start until about the 15 second mark, once its fully gotten up to speed.

That is normal for this machine.

I agree with Baily.   I saw nothing abnormal there.    Machine rides on pads and a little vibration is normal.    Check to see that the machine is on the pads correctly,   that the 3 suspension springs and counterbalance spring are hooked up.    If all OK,  then machine is OK>
