Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

SOURCE: Balance spring fell off washing machine. Where

Check the Sears parts site for diagrams of all the major components. Replace the model number shown (11020802990) with your model number (found on cabinet when you open the lid)

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=11020802990

Look at the diagram for the machine base and you should see the springs and where they connect.

Please see the following Sears Parts site for your washer.

Look at the "Machine Base Parts" section for a diagram.

Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for these machines with better diagrams for the springs and vibration pads.

SOURCE: out of balance even with tub empty. can i get to

I assume it is a top load model. In which case the back does not come off. Some recent models had a problem with the inner tub (balancing ring on the top of it) going out of balance, and even coming loose from the basket drive. You will need the Whirlpool spanner wrench to remove the tub, or at least tighten the spanner nut if it has come loose. This means removing the case completely. I have only on one occasion seen the tension spring (from transmission to rear of case) break. More than likely it is the inner tub.

Machine goes out of balance & vibrates on spin cycle


Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.

Shakes like crazy spin


Your maytag washer tub and basket assembly sits on a base counter balanced by 6 springs. Is is possible to move the tub around by hand. The best test is to start a spin with the unit empty of cloths, allow the tub to reach speed for a few seconds, lift the lid and check the tub position after it stops, if the tub is off center with the lid opening, re center the tub and run spin again. If your tub returns to an off center stopped position you most likely will need the base kit replaced. The base kit replaces the entire bottom of the unit along with new springs, and snubber, if so packaged per your application. Maytag experienced a defective stamping dye when these bases were stamped, thus they were stamped crooked. This test is performed with the machine it's self relatively level on the floor. If the tub assy leans and favors any one direction while you are trying to center it with the lid open, you may have a rusted or broken counter spring in side the unit. Pleazer Appliance...

Washing machine balance is off since we moved it.


There are tension springs attached to the tub. They are for the balancing upon spinning. Check and see if one came loose

Washer tub bangs when in spin cycle


There is not a repair guide , sounds like a spring may have broke or came loose inside on the frame take the front panel off to check for loose parts.
it may just be an off balanced load as well.

Unstable tub


There are springs inside the unit that stablize the tub during spin. If the springs are not attached correctly the tub will be off balance. Sometimes the Balance Ring loses it's fluid due to a crack or leak and the washer will spin off balance. THis requires a service tech to dissemble the machine.
