After a lot of research, I think the violent vibrations of my Kenmore LAT8624AAE
is the dampening pads but would like some advice.
I get violent vibration in spin cycle even if empty. Unit started on carpet but also tried heavy plywood and concrete floors with feet at same length and unit apparently balanced, no improvement. Inner tub is secure. I see all three centering springs inside.
Have to check but its been moved and flipped so many times I don't know that telltale white powder would still be present.
I've concluded dampening pads are worn-agreed?
If my diagnosis (damper pads) is right, I wanted to know what-if anything-I should do when I replace them. I was going to order 3 replacement centering springs since they're cheap.
