Have a GE WSXH208HWW Spacesaver, Washing Basket is wobbling. What is the problem and can I fix it myself?


2 possible problems. On the outside of the tub front and on the top back are cement counter weights that are bolted to the tub. If they are coming loose, they would cause the tub to go off balance and wobble. If just the stainless inner tub is the one that wobbles, that suggests a bad rear drum bearing. The counter weight problem easy to fix once you get the top and back off and just need re-tightened. The back drum bearing is something even trained techs want to avoid. It requires removing the complete tub/drum assembly from the washer----then splitting the outer tub in half to replace the inner drum and bearing assembly. Cost for parts will be excessive and not worth the repair.

I have a Whirlpool front loader Model GHW9150PW1.The drum seems to be wobbling real bad and dragging the bottom of the washer,can you help.


First, remove the 2 screws that hold the bottom front kick-plate on and remove the plate. Look to see if any of the shocks have come loose or broke. Post back your results.

Dryer makes thumping noises, starts then stops sporadically


If there is nothing in the dryer that could be causing the thumping, then it could be the main bearing going. Check for a wobble in the drum when it is spinning. If there is a wobble, that is the most likely cause. The thumping is caused when the bearing hits a bad place in it allowing the drum to hit other items internally.

My plastic drum seal on my Whirlpool duet front-loading washer is chipping apart. The drum doesn't run true, is wobbly and has a rhythmic rub when turning. How do I replace the drum seal? Model GHW9100LW.


You have more serious problem than just your drum seal. The support arms in the wash tub are broken. The wash tub should always spin true. When it wobbles it is a sure sign that the suport arms or spider arms are broken. It is an expensive repair since the wash drum, the outer plastic tub and the door seal need to be replaced. Check your warranty, to see if some of these repairs can be covered. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace it. Sorry.

Dryer makes banging sound as drum rotates


The drum rollers are worn out and wobble when moving..it should be more of a thump/thump sound, unless really are almost gone...UNPLUG dryer and raise top...Since no model. i'm going with standard kenmore/whirlpool dryer type. The top has two screws by lint filter..Remove these and raise top...The front can be removed by removing two screws inside each front corner. The door switch must be disconnected at wiring..Remove front and set aside...The drum can be removed after the belt comes off...look down in right rear corner under drum..you will see the belt pulley and you want to see how it goes around pulley to help reinstall..remove belt, there will be tension and make sure you draw yourself a diagram of path of belt to ease install of belt....now once belt is removed, you can pull out drum...there are two drum rollers. They are bad if you roll them and they wobble and make noise. They should be almost quiet when you roll them if they are good..the belt roller can be bad and squeek...check this as well...replace parts and reinstall

My washer wobbles a lot. I tried to wash a comforter in it and after that it wobbles and the drum is very loose now what might be wrong


If really bad sounds like drum bearings worn to excess......assume you've adjusted the level on the front feet?

Washer tub wobbles, washer is level, on spin cycle the tub wobbles so bad it sounds like the tub is hitting the washer.


Sounds like a drum bearing problem , unless you are an engineer , suggest call service agent for estimate.
