Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer
During the spin cycle, my washing machine started to move around. It moves up to 5 inches or so. It also makes a loud banging sound, and it eventually stops because the load is unbalanced. Any way to fix this?
There are 2 things you can do.
All washing machines have an off balance shut off, some are touchy, some let it run around the house. With wht machine empty, lean it towards you, on the 2 front feet, about 2 or 3 inches and let it drop. The self leveling feet in the rear must BOTH make good floor gontact and sometimes, just the weight of the machine will not adjust them. The other thing is, make sure the load is evenly distributed. Coats, blankets, small rugs etc. are very heavy when wet and they tend to throw all of the weight to one side.
There is no screw holding the yub in place. It hangs on the center post, where the agitator goes. There is however, what's called a snubber. It is a rubber device that looks like a flattened suction cup, that comes in contact with the tub. It helps keep the tub from jumping around too much.

You can try putting a rubber stopper on the legs to stop it from moving.

A screw is probably loose that is holding up the bucket. Thats why during the spin cycle, the bucket (which holds the clothes) is off balance and bangs against the wall of the washing machine. You'd have to get a repairman to come out and fix it. Its probably easy to fix, but may cost a lot just to get a repairman come out to your home.
