Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, the Bucket (wash Tub where you put your clothes) is very loose. When its on spin cycle, the tub rocks against the sides of the machine. How do you fix this?
The tub is connected to the washers transmission by a coupling and the coupling boot or sleeve.
something like the universal joints connecting the drive shaft to the cars transmission under the older model rear wheel drive cars.
When this coupling fails it wobbles back and forth and can bang from side to side!
If you replace the coupling immediately you may be able to save the washers transmission,
as long as it is still good now.
How old is the washer ?
If the washer is old it will not pay you to repair the
Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old washer
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
