My kenmore oasis HE washer was quiet as a mouse for a year, then started getting louder and louder on the spin cycle. Now it sounds like a helicopter landing. Other people that I know with the HE washers say the same thing.

I have a Kenmore HE 5t Elite, only 2 yrs old, sounds like an aircraft taking off every spin cycle. I checked in to it did not stop til I got an answer.
I am a woman you don't want to fool with.
Turns out on these machines the rear tub bearings/ spin basket support give out. It is a manufacturing issue and at least on mine, I have a ten yr warranty on the tub or basket , whatever you want to call it. the whole tubbasket needs replaced because of how the bearings were manufactured into the tub. sucks, really sucks! I guess it could be worse.
Hope that helps some of you.

naners,
Yours is a front load model, the Oasis is a top load model, they are very different in construction.
Should you be interested in what I believe causes the failure of the spiders in these machines please visit the thread on this site: -

Is there another thread? I did not see where you stated what kind of washer you had.
to the rest of you, I was being helpful. I know the problem with my machine and it is getting fixed. forthose of us who have "FRONT LOADERS"
there is a mnaufacturing issue in the rear tub bearings.

To naners,
The original post in this thread refers to an 'Oasis', a top load model.
Reading your post I concluded that you were identifying your front loader as being similar to the original subject of the thread. Should I be in error I apologise.
Whilst you may well be aware of the current fault on your machine, are you aware of what may of caused these faults? Should you be, that is why I suggested the thread I did. Should you have no interest so be it.
