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.

I have overloaded the washing machine and now it is off balance and i need to know how to fix it


Kenmore top loaders are equipped with an auto-leveling system on the back two feet of the washer. Typically, what happens when the washer becomes off-balance it's a simple matter of the auto-leveler needing to be readjusted. This is a very simple process that requires no special tools. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3868923-level_whirlpool_top_loading_washer

The rear auto-leveler should be periodically checked from time to time to ensure the washer maintains level. Any excessive vibration may cause the rear of the washer to become mal-adjusted. This is normal. Once the rear feet are properly leveled, make sure the front feet are adjusted so that the washer is level front-to-back and side-to-side. Use a level across the top of the washer cabinet (NOT the lid! The lid on most washers is slightly bowed.) to check.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Whirlpool Duet washer is off balance.


My wife and I just purchased the Whirlpool 9400 series washer and dryer. We loved the pair, the installers came in and set them up ran them rather quickly and showed us the features and left. We put our first load into the washer, I will add, it was a rather large load, but nothing bigger than what the washing machine would handle. Started the washer up and walked away. About 30 minutes later we walk back into the laundry room to see and hear the washer rocking the pedastle door right out of the pedastle and then started to walk itself about 12 inches from the wall. This was very dangerous to us as we have a 14mth old. We immediatly called the store who sent another installer over. He again checked it for levelness and said that this is a known issue and that we should consider buying the cabrio or taking the washer and dryer off the pedastles.

So, to solve this issue, I'm sure you are all waiting. Infact, the washer was level, however, and this is what I found to be key, Lift the washing machine off the front legs, raise them up about a 1/4" higher than the back legs, this will make the washer uneven from front to back, but the other key is to make sure that the nut on the washer leg is all the way up and tight against the washer. In my user manual it said use a 17mm open end wrench to lock the nut against the washer, but my nut was a 14mm.

Again, make the front of the washer a little higher than the back and make sure all the nuts that are on the washer legs are tight against the washer or pedastle.

My washer went from the house ********, to the thing that doesn't make any noise at all.
