Question about Kenmore 44042 Front Load Washer
Lost user manuel. The washing machine (44042 front load washer) is making a loud repetitive banging sound when it is in a fast spin cycle. When it is rotating slow in other cycles it does not make the sound?
Bad news,mostlikely it's the spider gear and that means new washer time.using to much soap does this.it eats at the rear bearing and actually breaks it off and that's the sound you're hearing the basket has no rear bearing to ride on any more.you can first check to see if the shocks are broken,but most of the time the shocks break because the rear bearing is gone but check that first,i've found some with just a broken shock from overloading the washer.good luck and sorry to give you the bad news,the spider gear costs around 450 to 500 hundred bucks
