Question about Washing Machines
It keeps going unbalanced in the spin cycle. Currently I am pushing the pause button, rearranging the clothes inside, and letting the machine continue. I can't leave it to wash by itself as when it unbalances the machine stops etc and I come home to a half washed load. Any help would be appreciated.

i think that 1 or more suspension rods r faulty. lift the lid and at the front of the machine u will see 2 plastic covers, remove the covers and undo the screws underneath. now lift the front of the hob up gently and u will see the suspension rods. they r easliy replaced. but first see if they havent just popped out. if they have just popped out look at the other 3 and refit to how the others are.if u need more help or u find another problem reply back and i will help u more.good luck

It appears your load balance sensor has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Hi just read your posting.Depending on how old your machine is it could be a couple of reasons.1st thing I need to know is how old your machine is? Also when the machine should turn the opposite direction listen carefully and do you hear a hum from the motor when it should be turning in the opposite direction?Please reply with this additional information and I am sure I can help you .Looking forward to your reply.
