Sounds like a counter balance spring (least that is where I would start). Luckily Kenmore/whirlpool are pretty easy to pop open if it is an older model.

Pop the shell off and take a look at the bottom back end of the tub see if the spring is broke/not connected. If it is broken get a replacement but sometimes the hole the hook is in will be broken. Just drill a new hole in the frame. and re-connect.

There are videos if you need a play by play.
