Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My washer just began doing this... come about 6-7 min. left during spin/fluff cycle the washer starts loudly shaking... it's pretty bad... i thought maybe had done to lg. of a load, yet it's doing it w/the smaller loads too... grrrr... it shakes crazy for 30sec. - 1min. then stops it's self and starts again from the slow to the crazy... it's not pulling any codes, so...? i'm not sure what to do? any advice or suggestions?
Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you have removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.
