You problem may a simple leveling issue. Check your machine front to back and side to side to ensure it properly level. Also, most top-loaders have "self-leveling" feet on the rear legs. If you walk up to your washer and it looks like the back is sitting lower than the front, you may only have to follow a few simple steps to re-level it. If your machine is equipped with this type of leveling system all you have to do is to lift the rear legs of the floor about two-inches by rocking the machine (empty of water, of course) towards you: 1. Lift the lid. 2. Place one hand under the rim of the front casing (not the wash tub). 3. Place your foot at the center of the front base to keep it from sliding. 4. Pull towards you to lift the back feet off the floor. 5. You should hear clicking noises as the feet re-level. 6. Slowly lower machine back to the floor. This should take care of most leveling problems that cause your machine to vibrate and shake during the spin cycle. These legs periodically become unlevel due to vibration and need to checked from time to time. I hope this may help you.

Why is my washing machine Miele w404 making thudding noises on spin Plse?


Unbalance load???

When in spinning cycle, does your drum start shaking violently and hitting the washer outer walls. Out of balance load.....

Is your machine on level floor. Does it have a play on legs while sitting doing nothing???

Happens for every load, then may be your washer shocks and/or top coil springs have come out or broken..

Or machine drum counter weights broken and drum going out of balance.

Getting a UE code on LG front load washer


Hello there
The UE ERROR CODE
UE - Unbalance switch error Unbalanced load is sensed three times during a spin operation. Open lid. Rebalance laundry load and close lid.
· Check wiring harness
· Check unbalance switch
· Check circuit board Normally this turns out to be the unbalance switch that has failed and needs to be replaced so i would have this checked first.
If you have a warranty on this machine still you should be able to use it ok?
Hope this is very helpful or you.
Best regards Mike

Flashing code dc and does not spin any more


DC is an unbalance error. You need to open up the back and take off the top and check the shocks and springs. That would be the first thing to do.

Washer becomes unbalances on heavy loads already replaced springs


I have same issue... My model i s FAV6800AWW. Failure Code is dC and uC for unbalance. I had replaced the clutch assembly 4 months ago (dyi) due to no spin.. it worked fine until now, where the unbalance issue is happening. For this issue, I have self tested the displacement sensor and it worked fine... I saw that on another forum that struts may have been issue.. so, I replaced the front struts. The back of the tub is hooked in by two suspension rods. The washer is leveled.. The tub spins/works when there is NO clothes in the tub... Only when I add any clothes, the tub starts to spin wildly until the displacement sensor kicks in and/or retrys or shuts things down... what's left to do??

Kenmore Oasis washer model 110.27032600; trapped hidden water


when you tipped the washer was the drain hose still attached? and if so was the drain hose elevated? most top load washers will have an amount of leftover water in the bottom of the tub. with the drain hose off and the washer tipped towards the rear you should lose any excess water. also try to open the top of the agitator to see if there is any water trapped there. hope this helps....

Hello my wft653a - wont spin like to use to now it makes a unbalance noise and the clothes are still very wet after the spin cycle - it is still going through the motions just making a banging unbalance...


I suggest you begin by checking the washtub suspension.

The washtub is suspended by a number of springs and dampers and it isn't unusual for one or more to break.

Model FAV6800AWW has problems with spin cycle with a small load. Will start to pump out water and spin, but stops. Load is unbalanced and constantly gets that way. We get an error message (?) dc.


Hi ceverett7 I’m an owner and have a solid feel for issues with this machine. Please see this post and review and let me know if I can help you with this very common issue (dc/UC errors in spin cycle) with the FAV6800AW and FAV9800AW machines. I have guided a number of folks thru the issue. I feel it will come down to a clutch issue but check out the TDS sensor. That is an easy check and cost nothing but your time. If you elect not to DIY the fix you can expect the cost to repair to be in the $3oo+ range. Be advised the clutch I recommend for replacement has gone up in price but is still a cheap fix.
TDS check from the SM;
Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.
It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.
Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.


Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


Press Hand Wash.

Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). If you get these results your Tub Displacement sensor should be OK and I believe it’s not the component failure producing dc/UC errors in spin cycle. I would remove the clutch for inspection and re-lube. There is a more technical troubleshooting method to check Tub Displacement Sensor in the Troubleshooting guide and Service manual.
We can turn on the drain pump in Service Mode to pump out excess water, let me know if you need help with that. The link I have in this post will send you to the Service Manual on this site in PDF format .

I believe a lot of folks toss this $1K machine when a $50 dollar clutch replacement or an even cheaper a Oneway roller clutch bearing clean up (if the bearings are rust free) will get the machine back in service.
Post back if you decide to DIY the fix and need help.


You can pump out excess water when you fail with dc/UC unbalance errors with this process from the Service Manual.

Close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding simotaniously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Pres the Delicates key this will lock the lid.

Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on.

Turn off the drain pump by hitting the off button or hit the Presoak key.

Good luck… Rich

Maytag fav9800aww washer has trouble code stating unbalance circuit is open or out of range washer completes the spin cycle as long as the machine has nothing in it with any kind of load it starts to spin...


If it’s a FAV6800AW or FAV8900AW and you want to DIY a fix take a look at this post and see if you or someone you know has some very basic mechanical skills and can do a clutch replacement or roller clutch bearing re-lube. The dc/UC unbalance errors are a very common failure issue with the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW clutch.

I have put together a step by step process to perform a clutch replacement process, this repair will get your $1000 machine back in service with a $50 dollar clutch replacement. Worse case you can give the repair person some facts and maybe control cost and speed to repair. I believe you will find you will pay $300 - $400 to have it repaired.

If you pay more than $50 dollars for the clutch you are throwing money away. Clothes Washer Clutch - 25001169

You can try this test just to rule out the TDS as the failure point almost all the time dc/UC unbalance errors are related to clutch issues with this machine model.

UC code on my Maytag Neptune Washer FAV6800WW


HI. this uc code represents a no spin state of the unit. this is caused by a faulty Motor control assembly. you will need to replace the Motor control assembly. this will fix this issue and, restore the normal actions of the unit.

This Motor control assembly will cost about $219.00.

Washer goes into unbalance mode


Check the springs and spring mounts,(might be broken or not on right), also could be something wrong with the balance switch (where the tub hits the switch).It could be mis aligned or defective. Check the springs first.
