leaking Kenmore washer

Hi all, new to this forum. I tried to search for a similar topic and found none, so I apologise if this has been covered before. Kenmore automatic washer 110.82993110, about 15 years old. Runs fine, with a small to moderate load no problems at all. With a large load, especially large bulky items (coats, blankets,etc.) it will leak, perhaps up to 2 quarts of water. I cannot find an obvious leak viewing underside of machine. Hoses, clamps, and such all seem OK. My guess is that during the spin cycle water rises and escapes OVER the tub. Does this sound possible? How to diagnose/fix?

Also, perhaps related, the tub can flop from side to side with just about no resistance. Are there supposed to be springs or other devices to dampen this movement?

Thanks very much. Gene

Hi genoinpa, and welcome to DIY Forums,
- I agree the problems you have are related. If you remove the cabinet, you'll se the suspension arrangement under the tub. I believe this model has 3-4 suspension springs, and maybe a big counter-balance spring. This is the likely source of flopping.

Do it Right -do it once.
