Default Washer goes out of balance during spin cycle a lot
Model Number: 80 Series   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years

Quite frequently, now, the spin cycle throws the tub out of balance. Used to hardly happen. Just guessing...if belt driven, could it need new belt. Model # is 82980820

Thanks
Bob

Hi.

Assuming that the complete model number is 110.82980820 you should check the 4 suspension springs and specially one at the back, then see if the the skate plate under the tub is properly positioned on the support, and of course the rear legs.
There is one more thing to check:
There are four locking pins - one in each corner of the base Part number: 285771

Part number: 285771

If any of those pins are broken or bent and not holding the cabinet, the washer will shake.

Simon.
