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.

The tub continues to go off balance in spin cycle. Starts out smooth then starts to wobble terribly til the UL shows and shuts down. Support rods are good


There is a little device inside the washer that allows the agitator to spin independent of the drum. If this gets stuck, the washer will try to spin the whole drum instead of just the agitator. This will cause the washer to think the load is too large or out of balance, causing the error code. On some Whirlpools this device is just a washer.

Out of balance washing machine


yea these things are a mother to get level. And if you get them right, a wood floor will settle under there heavy wieght. I found that after the third releveling . The last time i set all the screw adjusting feet to 35 inch pounds after initial truing. It has been good now for 18 months. One more thing, they have cast ceramic "frames" around the nylon drum that wont take too much abuse. Be sure its level before you cause serious damage.

Out of balance condition


I had a Fridadaire model and had the same problem. It could be 3 things. 1- the weight came loose that balances the drum. 2- the bracket that is attached to the drum could have cracked. 3. the bearings to the drum have worn out. All of these problems involve taking the washer completely apart. This is big process, but if you have time and patience it worth it.
Is this model belt driven?

check the drain pump in the bottom of the unit and verify its not clogged, verify unit is level, also check the support struts/springs for the tub.

MY SON LOADED A LARGE AMOUNT OF CLOTH INTO THE WASHER AND WHEN THE SPIN CYCLE CAME ON THE WASHER STARTED MAKING A HORRIBLE BANGING NOISE. it does not look like the springs are broken but the washer seems...


I'm suprised the unit was not able to spread a large load around to balance the drum. Maybe some item bunched up and made one side heavy. For a front loader, a proper load is just about all you can cram in there dry. You'll notice when the clothes get wet, they take less space, and when they are spun, there should be lots of room in the middle.

Washing machine drum is very wobbly


* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.
