    I just bought one and had it delivered yesterday.  Washed the 1st load today, and thought that someone was driving through our house when it went to the spin cycle.  Other than that, I am extremely happy with it......  Any help is appreciated, or it is going back.

It sounds like the machine is not balancing correctly. My guess is that if you operate the machine empty (no clothes inside) that it will operate fine. If so, then the machine is not balancing correctly.

Normally an error code should come up if there is a balance issue (UE error). If this code is not coming up then the machine thinks it is balanced when it really isn't. This means that either the hall sensor is sending out incorrect data or the main board is not interpreting the data correctly. A technician should be able to ohm out the hall sensor to see if it needs replaced or the main board.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

When spinning sounds like maybe a bearing is going out and the unit is now leaking water from the bottom

if sound is to much noise during spin and water leak in tub unit,we need to replace bearing,but not an ordinary or by you to replace the bearing only the service technician can do dat coz of hard to remove some part of washing machine,but check also the price and labor cost before the final changing of the bearing,if your unit is old one,try to get the new one,coz after you replace the bearing some part also wort out after a month.if the price is reasonable to replace,replace it.

Hi my washing machine wont stop running when the cycle ends - I have to pull the plub at the mains

Reason for taking a long time spinning is that it might have an uneven load. The wrong number of bath towels, for instance will mean it takes 3 or 4 tries at getting the spin right before it can spin them at the correct speed. An unbalanced load doesn't do the machine any good either.
After this wash has finished try it on something a lot lighter- say a duvet cover only with a couple of pillowcases. If that takes a long time too then the trouble is with the machine.

Looks like your "programmer" has stopped on the "spin cycle".
Could be a sensor has gone.
But everything points to the "little drive" in the programmer.
You could try "Manually Rotating The Selector Round a Few Times"
(This could free something off)
If a new "programmer" is needed, This could be more expensive than a new machine.

If the machine is under a year old it will still be under guarantee. If it is slightly over the year, but under 18 months old you still have a good case to go back to the manufacturer and get them to fix it.

Mine did this, it never got fixed, repairman told me to replace it. I suggest you do the same. He told me the springs and bumpers had just worn out, and from the looks of my old washer, he was right lol

Washer only spins light loads

Sounds as though your son damaged the transmission. If I were you I would take it out of his allowance...just kidding. A cheap thing that it could be that you may want to check though is your agitator dogs. Inside the agitator at the top are agitator dogs that have little teeth on them to catch the agitator and make it spin and agitate. Pop off the top where the fabric softener goes in and check them and see if they are catching. If not, if they look damaged and the teeth look worn then easy 5 dollar fix. Buy some new ones and replace them. If they look good though then your son damaged the transmission by overloading it and that is going to cost you between 150 and 250 dollars depending on if you get a refurbished one or not. If it's only 18 months old though you may still have a warranty on it and in that case take it back and don't say anything about the duvet. Just say one day it stopped working. You may be able to at least get it fixed for cheaper or free in that case. Again, just don't say what happened, as far as you know, it was working and then one day it just stopped. Hope this helps you and if you have anymore questions let me know. I will get a notification if you post something else to this. Good luck.

open the large plastic filter in center

Everything is working except the spin cycle

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
