Machine failing to spin correctly and drum wobbling everywhere

My machine is failing to spin correctly (at high speeds), the drum has a mind of its own and is moving all over the place. Though the machine does complete its cycle but the washing is soaking wet. Can it be fixed?

Open up behind, check to see if any spring/springs have come off. Check to see if one or more of the shock absorbers loose or faulty. The shock absorbers can be removed to be examined (note how they are fitted before attempting to remove) Faulty shocks shd be replaced. Wet clothes. Probably your exit is blocked with previous muck, check. Open out to clean well.

What would cause a nasty metal nashing sound when machine goes from medium spin to high speed spin during spin cycle?


Hi dear,
As I know it happens to other Asko washer models as well. From 800 rpm going up to 12-14 or 1600 rpm. That sounds happens due to vibration generated from motor. I do not thing you can do much about it unless changing motor,which is costly remedy. Thanks.

My Duet Washer is making loud noise during spin cycle and has plastic shavings, from front tub rubbing i assume.


Hi, it could be your drum bearings are gone the drum would wobble slightly. A way of checking is , machine unplugged put one hand at bottom front and one hand at top front edge and push up and down if it clunks quite badly then your bearings on the drum shaft are needing renewed. You also have a shock absorber for steading the drum this can also fail. The absorber is very hard to compress so if its easy to compress then it needs re-newed.

Washing machine knocking.


Does the drum wobble quite a bit or does it look normal? If it's wobbling it could be the drum casing knocking the internal structure. Might need a new drum spring if this is the case

My top load Bravos washing machine wobbles during spin cycle.


Most likely suspension rods and bushings need replacing. Also check outer tub ring. Sometimes it will break from beating on sides of washer, behind where water comes out.

My admiral washer wont spin the clothes dry


Probably not getting upto full spin speed, drum may wobble more than usual?
Change the motor drive belt below the machine, tilt the machine 45 degree backwards to access underneath, belt pulls off and replace same way.

I purchased the Frigidaire stackable front loading washer/dryer pair in 2004. A friend also has the same model and so did my sister. My sister said there was a loud clunk one day and the washer stopped...


Your power supply has failed, need part # 134409904, check ebay, about $70

this board is in a white plastic box with wires running to the motor, access from the back of the machine, maybe say magnetek on it 4246-99-1

Drum has come loose


The drum must reach full speed when spinning, otherwise it bangs about everywhere, centrifugal force keeps it up-right like a gyro, the machine is not getting upto speed, try replacing the drive belt.
tilt the machine backwards for access to the belt below the machine, simply pull off and replace wih new by easing the new belt onto the pulleys.

Washer won't spin fast, only slow


tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent. HE detergent specifically designed for front loading washers
