Grab the front of the spin tub, if it moves up and down, the bracket that the spin tub bolts to which goes through the back of the wash tub and attaches to the drive pulley in the back could be broken. Whirlpool however will not sell this part separately, only attached to a new spin tub, which is extremely expensive.

Spin the drum with hand to hear any noise from the bearings on the back of the drum, the drum should turn freely with no grating noise.

It is possible that the dampers mounted to stabilise the drum on motion is defective. The suspension springs can be weak and aggravate the drum to aggitate out of balance.
So check from the underside for the dampers, replace if soft and test.

REPLACE YOUR SUSPENSION RODS. You can get them at a discount applicance parts store online for about $60. Our washer is about 8 years old and has been getting unbalanced on every load. I replaced the suspension rods tonight and and it solved the problem.

Washer won't spin


Try a different spin cycle on another setting if it still doest work try removeing the clothes and changing it to a normal wash cycle. If no try unplugging it for a minute or 2 and then back in hopefully it resets and if still no movement on the unit at all you may have overloaded it causing the motor to wear prematuraly and burn up. This is very common with overloading.
