Why won't my washer spin?


Sounds to me like your washer tub had a very unbalanced load in it (heavy blankets, jeans, or pillows, all piled to one side instead of evenly distributed around the inside of the tub), and it threw it off balance. When it began to wobble and knock, it may have broken the mechanics underneath the tub which make it spin. The only way to properly diagnose it is if you remove the outer casing of the washing machine and look beneath the tub for broken/out of place items.

We cannot get the washing machine in balance. It jumps all around. It is level and we put the clothes in as balanced as we can, but don't know what to do. Any ideas?


Sounds like one or more of the springs that hold the tub in place could have broken or come loose. Tilt the machine and look under and see if there are any spare parts on the floor or any springs unhooked.

Small spring is hanging red clip on floor tub dose not look level water coming out around sides an top when it spins


this is one of several drum balancing spring clips and it broke or popped-off. This will for sure make the spin cycle shake the drum very much and spill water. Nedd to open the machine housing and replace/repair the spring.

During the spin cycle there is a very loud knocking noise,


Could be the spider arms are broken. You can confirm this by turning the tub by hand, if you hear any kind of thumping sound as you turn the tub, then the spider is broken. The spider is the support arms that hold the wash tub to the drive shaft. It's very expensive to repair.

If there is no thumping sound when you turn the drum, it could be that one of the supports or spring is broken. Hope this helps.

Popping or knocking heard in front end when riding


Sounds like the Spring may be broken or there is another loose front end part such as a ball joint or a spring seat or something like that.

I had a broken spring on my 1990 Cadillac Deville and didn't know it until looking at it up under the wheel, and experiencing a popping or knocking sound when turning.

It could also be the bearing cap area problem.

Kenmore clothes washer makes a knocking sound at


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.

I have a top load kitchen aid washer that works but when it agitates it is not straight ..it is on an angle and it is a direct drive (do I go thru bottom or top) and what is the problem???


Remove the 2 screws from corner of the control console and lift the console to the rear. Remove the 2 clips holding the cabinet to the rear panel. Unplug the lid switch wire. Remove the cabinet. Look for a loose or broken spring. There will be 3 large springs around the base. One small spring goes from the tub to the bottom rear panel(probably the one broken).Look for a loose skate plate under the tub. Maybe missing pads.

Fisher and paykel out of balance switch fault


Machine should reset when it has regained "balance". It is possible the the OOB switch lever is stuck on the tub ( it is under the top in the right corner and hangs parallel to the tub ). Move tub around and reset load. Sometimes the OOB switch get corroded or breaks and needs to be replaced in order to clear the fault. Call F/P.
