Please check if the machine is leveled or use a spirit level to keep the machine steady or use a rubber mat to check , in case the floor is too much polished. Also check if the machine wobbles. if so check the drum movement or the suspension.

    Yes, i've ensured all is level, even taken off top to check inside all suspensions and springs are in place as well as the brick ballast on top. Maybe it is just getting old and the springs are not so effective anymore? There is definitely plenty of movement around the drum.

Spin cycle is going on balance


Betty, if you suggesting the machine is out of balance/ causing the machine to jump around in spin cycle
1. it may be due to a heavy wet load ,like towels unbalancing the machine, try less load or slower spin ,then fast spin
2. could be concrete balancing block inside machine has come loose, both problems causing a unbalancing affect on the spin cycle.

It was spinning and started jumping around. Know now it needs new shocks. BUT THEN it stopped mid cycle. Door lock light on but no further action.


IT MAY BE UR SHOCKS BUT COULD ALSO BE THE DAMPER STRAPS, THE COUNTER WEIGHTS, BALANCE SPRINGS ETC ETC U HAVE TO REMOVE PANEL OR CABINET AND HAVE A LOOK
YOU MAY BE ABLE TO UNPLUG IT A FEW MINUTES AND RESET MOTOR BOARD./

Backfires and wont start


If you haven't messed with the spark leads then it sounds like the timing has jumped. Refrain from trying to start it as it can cause damage. Get timing marks checked before you do anything else

Hello. i have a kenmore washer machine 70 series that jumps all over the place when its on spin cycle and yes I did make sure the washing machine is level. I just don't understand whats happening


Hi P, I don't understand why I'm getting these questions, because I'm in the automobile section, but as I'm here and so is your question, here's the answer! The machine is being thrown out of balance. Try loading the clothing more evenly and see what happens. If the fault reappears it will be the bearings and centralization mechanism inside the spinning basket. Keep in mind that centrifugal weight is increased as the tub rotates. If all the clothes (or most are on one side) the weight increases with the speed and will make the whole machine shake. If its something which has recently started after having had the machine for some time, I would suspect a bearing or broken mounting inside the spin tub. Regards John

Zanussi 1400 Front Loader: Machine washs clothes as per normal but does not drain the water and cannot go into the spin cycle. Sits there doing nothing then starts bleeping.


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (You haven

Hi, My guess is that you have an uneven load in machine. When it's time for the spin cycle to run, it will not complete that spin. You will have to open the door and rearrange the load so that it will spin.( machine will not run when door is open). good luck.

Washer has stopped at 26 min with water in the drum. Will not spin or drain. Just sounds like it starts running then stops and repeats.


Good deal your machine is a Series 11.

“”Washer has stopped at 26 min with water in the drum. Will not spin or drain. Just sounds like it starts running then stops and repeats.””

I believe this is the start of a Spin Cycle of that Wash Cycle which Wash Cycle did you have selected?

Are there any error codes to the LED display like dC or uC?

If you stop that wash cycle with the wet load and do a Spin Only cycle will it complete with no error code?

Does the wash tub bang around in Spin Only cycle with the wet clothes load?

Standing by for some feedback and I will try to help.

Here is the Service Manual and parts look up. Can you let me know if you want to try to DIY the fix?

If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual.
If it one of those machines I suspect a possible clutch malfunction.


See this post for what is involved to do clutch maintenance or replacement.


Do you have any error codes to the display if it's a FAV6800A such as dC or uC unbalance codes. Is the wash tub banging around on Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle? ……Rich
