Hello guys,

I purchased a Kenmore Elite 110.27072600 Top Load on 06 and since last couple of months it is doing the spinning cycle very strange. No matter the size of load is, when it starts the high speed cycle I hear a big hitting sound inside, like when a pair of snickers is drying. I think whole tub is hitting the case/frame of the washer.

Sometimes I get the clothes moved out a little bit and it runs ok at the second or third intent, but lately the problem is becoming worse.

I called sears and they want charge me $250.00. I'm not sure if this is a good deal, I'm also very proactive doing mechanics (I can even repair head blocks of a car engine, etc), and just that appliances is new for me.

I appreciate if someone can give me some input, what could be the problem, what part should I look for, etc. If there is a repair manual it will be a great idea to have a copy.

Thank you!

wt-the part you need is the tub w/ shaft. manufacturer part #w10128830. price is $200-$250 depending on wich site you use. this site is out of stock. i'd have sears do it for the $50-60 difference.

Never seen a bad outer tub cause that reaction. Looks to me like you have bad shocks....

Maybe someone can explain the outer tub theory

Pop the hood and make sure all the support struts are in place.

Put the machine into diagnostic mode and see if there are any error codes stored there.

Thank you to all for the tips.

I actually ran the machine in diagnostic mode and there is no fault code stored.

In addition, I want say the problem come up while the washer runs the mini cicle to rebalance the load, just before the spin cicle. It looks like the machine goes unbalance, then I see the code uL.

Any tip on this please.

Thanks!
