Vibration during spin cycle
Hi - I have an old Kenmore Elite H3E Washer purchased in ~2003 and it is still going strong. Note this is a high capacity machine, and I was never easy on it, using it for full loads most of the time. But it handled in in all cases. Over the last few months, it can't seem to handle a full load of clothes during the spin cycle to spin dry the clothes. I can usually put the machine back in spin mode without removing clothes and 95% of the time, they will come out as intended . If I wanted to restore the washers spin performance, what would be the likely cause & fix? From what I have researched, it is the drive belt being worn or loose, the springs, or the strut. All of which are reasonably cheap and not too bad to replace. When I rotate the tub by hand, it appears to stay in the 1/4" tolerance with the gasket around the full rotation. The bowl does feel a little loose front to back if I tug on it, but I have no reference of what it should be. There is no observable slipage in the drive belt while watching the bowl during the spin cycle. Thanks for any help.
