how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.
Normally it is two simple things.
First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.
Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..
If the washer is shaking and actually going out of balance and generating the UL error and the drum is empty the most likely cause of this problem is something under the spin basket.Clothes can end up under the spin basket and cause it to turn crocked and cause the out of balance. First I'd recommend removing the spin basket and check under it for any clothing or other obstruction that might cause the out of balance. Here is a diagram of how to Check.. Click Here
Disconnect power to the washer then tape the lid closed. Lay the washer carefully on its front panel on a padded surface then check the four suspension spring/rod assembly. Make sure the suspension doors are properly attached to the outer tub to prevent an off balance situation that may lead to the banging of the basket to the outer tub during the spin cycle. Also ensure the machine is balanced and properly or evenly seated on the floor.
if you can make it rock by hand or by jumping the legs are not adjusted proper.it can also rock if the floor is soft... then get thick plywood under the washer ....11/2 inch should be good.you should try to balance the load put heavy things in first
there are some springs that help hold the tub even as it spins also make sure that the washer is level check front to back side to side and corner to corner if it is unlevel they will be out of balance in high speed spin
One of the support arms on the back of the spin basket (stainless steel tub) is broken and causing it to spin in the fashion you describe. The only fix is to replace the spin basket. Using it in its current condition will cause serious damge to the outer tub shell. Let me know if you decide to replace it or need assistance locating a replacement tub. I can assist you in how to disassemble the washer and how to reinstall a new tub. Sorry...I wish this was better news.
The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.
make sure all shipping pins are out the tub should move all around from side to side if it level still bangs its eather the balance ring top basket are there 3 slides on a plate above the motor just put some silacone oil on tham move around
Sounds to me like you have a worn drive block and possibly a bad spin tube. The drive block can be accessed by removing the agitator first. Next you will need to remove the spanner nut. Now you can remove the basket. Attached you will see the picture of the drive block, I hope if it downloads. The spin tube locks into this drive block with two tabs that fit in respective grooves in the block. If the tabs are worn off the spin tube, that will have to be replaced as well. Good luck,
