Baumatic top loader bk6el 6kg goes off balance

My washing machine keeps shaking and wobbling during the spin cycle. I try and balance the load evenly. It sometimes stops mid spin cycle and I have to rebalance and start again.

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

This sounds like a drainage problem. First thing is to check the filter behind the flap on front of machine.
Please post back your findings for further assistance.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Bad vibration during spin

Good morning! It's common to a washing machine to go out of balance everytime we exceeded the prescribed capacity load (as indicated in the enclosed manual upon purchase of the unit). the fitted new pump is not the source of such problem. Please try to review the manual of your machine and take note of the required capacity load which I think should not exceed 6kg. Best regards.

Hi Same problem but easy to fix.
Remove back cover of machine. Look to the lower end of the bowl and you will notice a stainless steel wire with hook attached. If this is hanging loose that will be your problem. Reattach the hook to the grey coloured lever , it has a hole drilled through it at the extremity. The wire pulls on this lever to disengage the drum brake during the spin cycle.

Washing machine off balance in one cycle


Make sure washer is on a level surface and all four feet adjusted properly. A slight forward lean may help with this problem as the out of balance switch is at the rear.

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load


The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

Very loud shaking during spin cycle


assuming it is a front loader. Check if transport bolts are not still attatched. If not, open back cover and look for shocks for breakage or being siszed. Do you have a noise from the drum while spinning and having no load. If so, the bearings need to be replaced.

Shakes during spin cycle


Most out of balance problems are from the clothes in it. Stop it, move the clothes around - kind of even out the load and try again.

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
