    Clunker NEW
    by: pgobin@sympatico.ca

    I have a loud clunking noise coming from around the drum of my Kenmore front end washer. I can feel it when it clunks, but it seems to be totally enclosed and falls onto the metal drum when it goes around. Can anyone tell me what it might be that has broken free inside, and how to get it out without totally disassembling the washing machine? It can't be too big a fix, rather than buying a new washer.
