Check base mount springs, there are 3 from base to tub and 1 from tub to back bottom for counter balancing. If all are ok then you will have a skid plate problem. Best to call for help.

SOURCE: washer sounds like off balance during spin

old duets have nut on rear pulley that becomes loose. remove rear panel and tighten nut. check while spinning by hand if pop is felt. if it rotates smoothly then you may need new shocks on tub

SOURCE: Washer will not stay balanced on spin cycle no matter what size load.

The tub brace or spring may have come loose.

Washer goes thru cycle ok untill spin cycle gets error code out of balance, but machine not out of balance


That is not to say that the drum is not out of balance. Try running it empty and see if it happens.

The washer tub is bonceing all over


Its out of balance you need to even disperse the weight of clothes based on how wet they will be when the washer goes into the spin cycle. The solution is to open the washer and move items in the washer to the spin cycle stays level.

Maytag atlantis washer doesnt spin on spin cycle, also found plastic shavings in clothes, appear to be coming from the top outer edge of the tub, a white plastic trim piece. wash cycle seems to work fine...


There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle. You should start by checking the balance shocks .

My washer goes into spin cycle byitself and when washing,if u r in spin cycle it sets for 14 mins thats good 4 mins into spin all knob lights start flashing and the screen says uL


One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.

The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.

You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.

If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.

Spin cycle goes out of balance even when empty.


The stem is bent or fractured or the bearing is shot. This is a rebuild job for a techo.

Jet engine??!!


Friend,
ngafm at your service!
How old is the washer?
It sounds like the tire out of balance syndrome!
Like a car tire that sings or vibrates when it's out of balance!
It may be a worm part thats spinning and you should call service and not take any chances, with this matter!
How long has it been sounding like this?
Bless You
