You need to first remove the bottom kick plate. you will notice two 3/8 bolt heads on each side. These are to raise and lower the rollers in the front and rear of the unit. There are also 2 legs in the front that can screw in. These are usually lowered after the unit is installed to keep it from moving.

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?

how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

Westinghouse virtuoso the alarm keeps going off fridge not cooling freezer is not freezing. Help!

Try adding refrigerant or freon. The Alarm just warns you that it's not cooling or freezing and your food is thawing out. Check the fan if you hear the fan running it should be the coolant needs to be put in it. Or it could possibly be both.

I have a samsung dryer front loading. it seems that the dryer is not balanced as it wobbles while drying. today the noise got worse, until i pulled the drum toward me then it went back to just wobbling. is...

It is nice these days as many washers and dryers are self leveling with just a little effort. The rear legs have the self leveling setup but if you dryer is old the adjusters maybe rusted. Try this... look at the front from a few steps back you will see the front two legs, they will probably be even. Unplug the dryer and slightly pull away from the wall, not to far as the dryer hose may disconnect. Tilt the dryer forward pivoting on the front legs (just raise the back a couple inches off the floor) and then let it drop. if the legs are self leveling this act may have leveled things. If the legs are rusted a little more aggression is needed maybe with the help of a parts solvent spray (56 or WD-40 etc.)
If your dryer is older then you have adjustable legs that need to be rotated one at a time until the dryer is level.

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.
