Question about Whirlpool AWM9000 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer spins with nothing inside, but not with a load of clothes

Inexplicably, during a cycle, the washing started kicking and moving around. It had previously been balanced and nothing has changed. Now it looks like the drum inside is off kilter. Washer spins with nothing inside, but not with a load of clothes. Is it possible the drum got dislodged from it proper place after alot of rumbling around?How do I get it back in place? regards

SOURCE: drum off balance

Open washer's cover and look for a released or a malfunction shock absorber.

SOURCE: drum off balance

It's either a bad suspension spring or you have a crack in the tub support.

My MAH 5500B washer has a squeak when fully loaded at the start of rotation in both directions.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

if still the problem then ,Motor is kicking on and off making that noise....so far for us this has been a motor issue 9.5 times out of 10.

Washing machine very loud and machine moves during spin cycle


Normal these mean unbalance load of clothes. Try to balance it with heavy clothes opposite each other. The fabric that hold more water tend to be heavier during the spin cycle. Also try not to overload the machine by washing clothes just half to 3 quarters full

NAV5800a top loader washer


The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
