Q:

topload elite oasis makes loud noise on spin cycle

A:

Washers offer many opportunities for problems. Clothes get stuck between the tubs, socks end up in the pump or drain, etc. While you wait for the expert answer, you can check out a similar problem at another webs site that may give you some insight. I attached the link below. If you decide you do need repairs that you are not comfortable with doing yourself, an option I have while you are waiting on an expert to answer your question. I found this really great link in Manage My Life website. I attached the link below. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with your washer. I suspect the bearing in the outer bearing is going bad. A bad bearing would cause a growling noise in spin. Yes, there is a bearing in the washer. In the parts list it does not show a bearing because it is part of the outer tub. That�s why when you checked they said there is not a bearing. I checked the warranty of the outer tub and it has a 10 year warranty but you would have to pay for labor. Sears must perform the labor for the part to be covered. The labor should be a flat rate of $129.00. Please ask about the flat rate labor when you call in to set up service. To set up service please call 1-800-469-4663

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

We were having the exact problem on our Kenmore 11027082603 washer. Technician came out this morning and ordered outer tub which as Mark T states is under 10 year warranty and $129 is not so bad when you look at the cost of the tub - $266.67 that is no cost under warranty!

Sorry, Mark T, but this is about the eighth conversation I've counted where you have responded to an Oasis owner and stated that you know of no consistent problem with the Kenmore Oasis he bearing. That just won't fly. We had the same problem with 110.27092603. Goodbye Kenmore.

I am having the same problem. During the spin cycle, the washer is very very loud. I have a service appointment with Sears but I am trying to determine if it is worth having another repair to this washer. The operator at Sears didn't show that the outer tub was covered by warranty. Does anyone know if it is?

I have a kenmore oasis top load washer. The suspension rods went bad I replaced them I used the washer twice and waited two days before using it again. I was not happy to hear the noise this high price washer was making. Loud noise like the bearings are now going bad. (Ugggg) ... My mom use sears for 60 years never this kind of problems. Me, no more sears. High end washer just not for me at sears. I'm about to have to pay twice for this. I'm not happy at all.... Some body please help me on the noise .

Same issue here. I read Mark T's comments that the manual states there is no bearing - yet Mark says in fact there IS a bearing and SEARS can order it (for their repair people only??) Can't John Q Public order the same?? HMMM why would the manual not show this part when in reality there IS a replacement bearing.. Makes no sense to me. Anyway, my Wife and I bought this KENMORE washer/dryer set in early 2008 so 7 years with ZERO issues is not bad at all IMHO! A couple weeks ago this very loud noise during the high speed spin showed it's ugly head. I'm a construction guy and part time automotive mechanic so I knew the noise we hear is a bearing and I know I can do the fix if I can get the part. I am happy SEARS sponsors this Q&A, it really helps. I hope I can get the part.. We'll see.

Sears repairman is at my home now to replace the bearing he says is the problem. My machine is apparently not under warranty (he says it's a one year warranty) and will cost me $300. This will be the last Kenmore washer I buy--very disappointed in the washer. Also, the dryer had to be repaired because it started burning lint inside the dryer even though we clean the filter every time we dry and clean the outside vent. Never had these issues with older models of washers and dryers.

Q:

my kenmore elite Oasis washer is very loud on spin cycle 11027082603 Kenmore Elite Washer

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Washer, Model: 110.27082603. From reviewing the details on your model,based on your symptom and description the tub bearings are worn out. The tub bearings and shaft is part of the outer tub assembly. I strongly suggest calling and scheduling a service appointment to have your washer repaired.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the washer to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

Caution: Contents inside the washer unit could have sharp edges. Make sure you wear protective gloves during the repair.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Q:

Entire suspension kit or just suspension balls 11027082603

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when the suspension goes out on your washer. I did look into the model number you have provided and it is recommended to replace all the parts in conjunction with the suspension because once one part goes out the others are not far behind. I recommend getting the kit because the suspension works all together so they will be worn out at the same time. Also to save you time and money in the long run so nothing else breaks down the road.  

 
You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.
 
 
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
