Clothes washer ?

Question

Rivernut

Older Kenmore acts like it is out of balance! Lot of skaking around on spin cycle. Other than having it on the most level area, anything else that can be adjusted or checked? Thanks

Most of thr wash machines have springs that soften the tub when the load is out of balance, sounds to me like one of the springs broke or unhooked.

If it isn't one of the springs, it sounds like it could possibly be the bearings in there as well.

If this happened on only one wash of clothes the load maybe lopsided as in too many heavy things on one side of the tub. If it happens on all confused.gif washings I have no idea.

It's every load. It just gets so out of balance and shakes. It can be heard through the whole house. Sounds like a buffalo stampede.

Those machines are very reliable, but sometimes they show this problem. Many times they are not level. The back of the machine has selfleveling feet and if one side is not locking in place it will jump all over the place. It is easy to check. Pull the machine away from the wall a few inches and then tip it forward and set it back down. This resets the leveling mechanism. Be careful when putting the machine back to push it straight back. Hope this works for you.

coiuld also be the counter balance ring at the top of the spin tub has gotten cracked and leaked out the fliud. it does not happen but i have seen it a few times. lots of the times it will be like said previously. the self leveling legs have collapsed. when you tip it forward make sure they drop out by pressing in on each of them they will move up into the machine when pressed in seperatly. sometimes you have to pry them out with a screwdriver. ... paul

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.
    • Rick Bancroft
      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.
