The washer was working great for most the year, all of a sudden it seems to be off balance and now on the spin cycle it vibrates so much that the washer itself creeps across the floor. the clothes are...


A few things I did and it solved my problem of the same nature.
First:
Run a cycle with nothing in the washer. Some models have have a water tank on the outside of the drum that fills to balance the drum. Running a cycle without anything in the drum may allow this small tank to fill back up.

Second:
Grasp the agitator at the top and near the base and move the whole drum around side to side and up and down. This may realign the the skid pads with the drum feet (not the terms that I remember from talking to a repair man I know but doing this may help)

Third:
There may be springs that help keep the drum balanced and centered. If one of these has broken. This would cause the same problem.
Locate them on the inside of the cabinet near the sides and attached to the bottom of the cabinet. (that's where they were for my washer).
Mine were fine so that wasn't the problem.
The first two items fixed it for me.

Hope This Helps!

How to balance a frigidaire washer?


Hello - Are you speaking about being balance without the leveling legs? Is the unit located on complete level ground? Or is the washer tub loose and unable to move? If you are referring to the drum, try rotating it manually when it is turned. If you notice that the drum is not balanced and cannot rotate freely, I would suggest contacting a professional so they can move forward accurately. Washer may possibly have a faulty bearing, unbalance drum or pulley issue.

How do I balance the washer as well as the bowl inside . I have never been able to fully balance the washers base and I also am wondering if the bowl needs balancing and how to do both.


There are no balance adjustments, the drum is a floating design on springs and ,lower hydraulic arms. The drum is also weighted for passive counterbalance.

When spinning, Out of balance message occurs, then the machine starts to add water to get the load out of balance. It will put additional time on the wash cycle. It will drain and try to spin again. Then...


it could be weak shocks for the drum or the springs. you can also overload the washer. there should be a gap in filling washer with clothes around 5-to 6 cm's on the drum ring this gives space for movement and balancing. the washer can also become out of balance if the bearing is damaged, if you can lift the drum from the bottom of the ring and it moves up and down by few millimeters and feels lose then its usually a sign the bearing is weak. this can make the display say there is a problem with balance. 6kg or 7kg is the weight of the clothes and water not the clothes. over loading the washer damages the bearings and put more pressure on the shocks and springs.

Need to balance washing machine drum


The drum should not need balancing, but the washer should be level in all directions. If the washer is level, but vibrates excessively during spin cycle, you may need to replace the springs. There is a set of suspension springs which act as shock absorbers. When these wear out the washer will bounce across the floor unless the clothes are 100% balanced in the washer.

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