My Kenmore 500 top loading washing machine wont work right. sometimes it will work and other times it wont. I will put a load in it and sometimes when it hits the rinse cycle it seems like it gets stuck...


for the top loading washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, if clog your drain pump of some hair pins,cotton buds or coins or any small item,that the cause of water stuck,and it will long time draining or totally not running the drain pump.and its cause of stop of cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time,because after washing the pump must be on to remove water before start the next cycle.and the unit top load have drain pump you must be up the drain hose up to 90cm from floor lever to make the water lever is make in normal,the water automatically goes out by drain pump.
and for unbalance most of all top loader have problem in unbalance, the main reason is overload or the type of cloth you wash.

My new Maytag Bravos HE top load MVWX500XW vibrates during spin, is this normal?


from the way you describe the issue it sounds normal, all washers vibrate at least a little or alot (depending on the balance or unbalance of the load) if it is just vibrating and not making a grinding or scraping noise it is fine, if its vibrating too much for your like, try to rebalance your load.

My washer tub acts as if the load is unbalanced . but i tried it empty it does it also. it worked fine before we moved this week model number LAT 7304AAE


Does it start at all or go into unbalance straight away? It is possible that the lever which engages the unbalance/lid switch has come out of the switch mechanism and it is continually indicating unbalance even when there is nothing wrong. The easiest way to check is to undo the two screws on the front and remove the panel by pulling the bottom forward, then undo the two 10mm bolts inside underneath the top panel. You can then lift up the top panel and reach the lid/unbalance switch and check that the metal lever is properly activating the switch.

What does"ue " mean?


UNBALANCE ERROR - Display shows UE.Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The washer gets unbalanced on small loads that never happaned before a couple of weeks ago. The machine has a unbalance spin load compensator but makes ungodly banging now, that's never happen until...


the problem with small loads is that the tub gets unbalanced very easy,if it spins correctly with a larger load there's nothing wrong with the washer,it's just unbalanced,you can open the lid and move the clothes around by hand to try to balance out the load,very common,also has the washer been moved?check for level,if it was moved one of the legs could have moved to put the washer unlevel,

Getting a UE code on LG front load washer


Hello there
The UE ERROR CODE
UE - Unbalance switch error Unbalanced load is sensed three times during a spin operation. Open lid. Rebalance laundry load and close lid.
· Check wiring harness
· Check unbalance switch
· Check circuit board Normally this turns out to be the unbalance switch that has failed and needs to be replaced so i would have this checked first.
If you have a warranty on this machine still you should be able to use it ok?
Hope this is very helpful or you.
Best regards Mike

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
