KENMORE MODEL 110 25732 WASHING MACHINE PURCHASED APPROX. 1995 IS TOTALLY OUT OF BALANCE WHEN SPINNING DRY.  THE TUB IS NOT JUST MOVING SLIGHTLY BUT IS BANGING AROUND AND EVEN POUNDING AGAINST INSIDE FRONT OF WASHER.....SEEMS LIKE IT'S MOVING 2 TO 3 INCHES IN ALL DIRECTIONS BEING UNBALANCED.  I CAN PUT MY HANDS ON RIM ABOVE TUB WHEN NOT RUNNING AND MOVE IN ALL DIRECTIONS WITH VERY LITTLE RESISTANCE.

I PRINTED OUT A PARTS DIAGRAM AND SOME INSTRUCTIONS, AND THEN TURNED THE WASHER OVER ON THE FRONT SO I COULD LOOK BENEATH.  I FOUND ONE SPRING THAT WAS DISCONNECTED AND THOUGHT THAT MUST BE THE PROBLEM AND RECONNECTED IT.  THE OTHER SPRINGS LOOK TO BE OK.  THEN WASHED A LOAD OF CLOTHES AND IT STILL IS OUT OF BALANCE SAME AS BEFORE.  I CHECKED TO BE SURE THE WASHER IS LEVEL AND IT IS.  THE WASHER WASHES GOOD AND I JUST WANT TO FIX SPIN BALANCE PROBLEM IF I CAN.

ANY SUGESTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  THANK YOU.

The lid switch was/has been disconnected and I can watch the washer spin dry as it is happening.  The thing is TOTALLY OUT OF BALANCE ! ! !  I stop it and balance the things that are spinning and it has no effect......it still is way out of balance.  I watched the video you sent me and that really is no help.

Any more suggestions?  Are there other things that need replacing to stop it from knocking around while spinning?  I can't find my owners manual and wonder if there is a website I can go to to find an owners manual and a parts breakdown for my washer (complete model # shown in my reply to your first relpy to my orginal post).

Thank you for your help.

THe video I sent you was just to show you how to remove the cabinet only

OK here is another video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxUJ3GJMAyA)it shows  how to remove the inner basket (on top of the inner basket is a balance ring that  has liquid in it to keep the unit balanced during spin .

the video part I need to see starts around 3 min and the inner basket is removed from the unit at the 4 min mark .

Shake the basket side to side to see if you hear the liquid sloshing around in the ring .

If not look at the top of the basket at the plastic ring to see if it has had a holes  that have been rubbed in it so the liquid has leaked out .

Let me know?
