A:

Having a properly working washer is very important. I did some research on your model number but was not able to find information on how to check the fluid in the balance ring. Your expert will be able to help to help answer your question. It may take two business days for your expert to reply. If you would like to look into Sears doing the repair here is a link for Sears Home Services. I do hope that everything works out on the washer.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your washer. Normally the balance ring does need to be filled about half way with water, in order to help keep the tub stable. However, when you have a problem like this, it is usually a problem with the suspension system that is causing it. First, make sure the washer is not beginning to spin with a full tub of water. It should drain all the water out from the basket before it shifts into spin. Be sure the clothes are not sitting on one side causing the washer to become off balanced. Be sure the washer is level and both front legs are secured in place with the jam nut. The washer could have worn suspension pads or the gear case could be leaking and slinging oil on the suspension pads causing a lack of friction between the tub support and friction pads. Since you how to remove the cabinet, you will need to do it again to access the suspension system. The image below will show you how to do this. If the pad are worn, then they will need to be replace. Make sure that you check the plates and the springs for any damage. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

It is normal for the balance ring to be about half filled with water. Without having the model number I can't be certain of what type of Kenmore washer you have. The suspension system can vary depending on the model. First, make sure the washer is not beginning to spin with a full tub of water. It should drain all the water out from the basket before it shifts into spin. Be sure the clothes are not sitting on one side causing the washer to become off balanced. Be sure the washer is level and both front legs are secured in place with the jam nut. The washer could have worn suspension pads or the gear case could be leaking and slinging oil on the suspension pads causing a lack of friction between the tub support and friction pads.

You will need to remove the washer cabinet in order to check the suspension springs and pad. After removing the console end cap covers and the screw at the bottom of each end cap slide the control panel forwards and then lift it up and hinge it over the rear panel. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before placing the control panel in the service position. See images below for instructions on removing the washer cabinet.

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 .
