Admiral model lnc6762b71 tub dosen't center itself

Check balance springs at the bottom of the tub/drum. To gain access and remove front panel insert a knife or thin blade approx. 4" in the from each side in between the front seam on the front panel, this will release the lid clips, lift and hinge back the lid panel, remove the two screws securing the front panel and remove, there are 6-8 springs at the bottom, check all are intact.
Also check drum is rotating at full speed, if not check and replace drive belt below the machine, tilt machine back to gain access, flip belt off the pulleys and replace same way.

When the spin cycle begins the washer vibirates and moves on the floor. After the spin cycle reaches the maxium speed it stops. The springs are fine, but what else could be wrong?

The machine is probably not leveled properly. To level the machine, partly fill it with water. Make sure that the drum is standing in the middle of the machine and then adjust the machine until the water is at the same level all around at the nearest set of holes to the water. Check that the drum is still in the center of the outer drum. Make sure that the adjusting feet are all firmly on the floor and that you cannot rock the machine at all by hand. A top loader must be 100% level or it will shake.

Can bearings be removed without removing the drum itself on a wma54

sorry no its a big job but here goes isolate from electric and power remove lid and rear bottom cover.
remove soap drawer and remove screws you can see behind it then remove fascia, then undo the door seal and plinth cover ,then remove front panel.
then remove dispensor hose from tub, go to the back remove sump hose and motor and wiring to element then remove top front sub frame and undo the top and bottom weights then remove the pins that hold the suspension legs to the tub lift off the springs and the tub is free.
Then split the tub knock out the old replace with new that is assuming you dont damage the shaft of the drum support whilst removing il then do it all in reverse this normally takes me 2 hours it might take you 2 days but hey lifes full of challenges good luck

Hi my smartdrive machine keeps going off balance during the rinse an spin cycles, when you look in the machine when it empty the bowl doesnt seem to be in the centre ,is there anything that needs to be...

sounds like your "bias spring" has broken or fell off. This is located at about the 7:00 position under the top and attaches the tub to the drum supports and keeps the tub aligned. It is possible that you have a bad tub support as well, but less likely.

URGENT~no clue how to reinstall transport bolts for moving washer

The long one go on the bottom and the short one go on top the hole for the shipping bolts are on the back might have a clear plastic cover over the holes on the back panel there is only one way to put them in start by hand tighten the bolts with nothing in the drum the holes should line up one you fill the catch and get hard to turn start using a wrench when it is done try shaking the inner tub it should not move all the shipping bolts do is keep the tub from slapping around inside the cabinet and breaking things Good luck

Lg bearing problem

Don't order any spares until you've stripped it down. See below:
  • Make some space, unplug, unplumb, drain, remove top and rear panel.
  • Remove bolt holding rotor onto splined shaft.
  • Push down on top of tub to make the rotor more accessible then pull it off the shaft. Be aware that hefty magnets in rotor tend to pull it back on. Beware - strong magnetic fields!
  • Disconnect cables running to stator (that rather impressive ring of coils) and remove the six bolts which attach it to the tub.
  • Do NOTremove the 23 bolts which go through the steel plate at back of tub into polypropylene tub itself. I did - nothing happens!
  • Disconnect cables running to heater element and thermocouple (temp sensor) at bottom of tub. Remove second nut and ease out element.
  • Remove sprung wire which holds the rubber bellows to the front of the machine (the "port hole"). Leave it attached to the tub but fold the rubber into the drum so it's out of the way.
  • Disconnect rubber tube connecting the tub to the pump. I found it easier to remove it at the pump side
  • Disconnect pipes connecting the soap dispenser drawer to the tub. This is easiest at the tub side.
  • There is a long tube, about 1cm diameter running from an air chamber near the bottom of the tub to a pressure sensor (to monitor water level) mounted at the front top right. Disconnect from the pressure sensor.
  • Remove the scew holding said pressure sensor - it will be in the way when you remove tub.
  • Pull out the drawer and remove the two screws holding the soap dispenser. That will be in the way too! Leave hoses connected.
  • Also unscrew the solenoid valves. That's the last thing in your way.
  • Pop out the nylon gizmos which hold the suspension springs where they attach to the cabinet.
  • Note that there are two dampers at the bottom of the machine. They separate into two parts - no need to detach anything.
  • Unless you own a block and tackle it is very difficult to lift the tub vertically out of the cabinet. I layed the machine its right side (looking at the front). Get help, tilt gently and rest on something to protect cabinet paintwork. Remember to leave the door open and to keep the pressure sensor, soap tray, solenoid valves and miscellaneous plumbing cabling and fingers clear as you ease the drum out of the cabinet.
  • Remove bolts, split tub and remove drum.
  • I found the seal was obviously gone and the first bearing was wrecked.
  • Both bearings and the seal are available but I couldn't get the failed ones out (perhaps if I had specialist tools) so I ordered a rear drum including bearings and seal (about £120).
  • Reassembly is straightforward - just note the following:
  • If you replace the rear drum, rescue and reuse (or order a new) seal (huge O ring) between the two halves of the tub. Also rescue and reuse thermocouple.
  • When reinstalling tub ensure the dampers re-engage.
  • Beware when reinstalling heating element that it doesn't foul the drum. Also ensure no stray screws etc were attracted by those magnets. Give the drum a spin by hand to test once everything is reassembled but before switching on.
Two days doing it blind without instructions! More like two hours if I had to do it again.

Whirlpool direct drive washer is always out of balance. Replaced 3 plastic glide plates and still out of balance even when the tub is empty

In most cases the floor is giving and allowing the washing machine to shake. For that problem you would need to stableize the floor from underneath. If you floor is nice and solid, try to tilt the washer forward raising the rear feet off the floor a couple inches then sit it back down. This will allow the auto feet levelers to adjust and may stableize the washer. If you still have a shake you could have a broken spring. Good luck and I hope this will FixYa.

Whirlpool washing machine, top load

hi without further investigation its a bit hit or miss , does the whole tub tilt or is it just the inner drum ?
if its just the inner drum then it sounds like the bearings are on there way out
if its the whole tub then it could be one of the springs that it hangs from or the shock absorber underneath that may have come adrift
hope this helps
