The tub continues to go off balance in spin cycle. Starts out smooth then starts to wobble terribly til the UL shows and shuts down. Support rods are good

There is a little device inside the washer that allows the agitator to spin independent of the drum. If this gets stuck, the washer will try to spin the whole drum instead of just the agitator. This will cause the washer to think the load is too large or out of balance, causing the error code. On some Whirlpools this device is just a washer.

Please help me find what's causing my GE top load washer to sound like a freight train in spin cycle??

First, a huge thanks for including a video of your problem. I wish all answer seekers would do the same. It helps greatly.

The video helps greatly, but is missing many important parts/areas to help fully diagnose. One thing that I noticed, tho it was a "split second" shot, was the wobble in the agitator, which seemed to wobble/vibrate in greater magnitude than the tub. The agitator should sit firmly on the shaft, and not wobble so much. (if a 2 piece agitator, the smaller finned top section is normal to wobble a little bit more tho).

The roaring noise indicates another problem, most likely a worn tub bearing. I'll include a link to a YouTube video that shows replacement of a tub bearing. Also make sure the 4 short upper rubber "shock-dampening straps" (tubular in shape) are not overstretched or broken from age/use. If so, they need replacement.

The general movement of the tub and motor assembly in your video is within the realm of "normal". But is perhaps on the upper limit of normal movement.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.

The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

My washer makes a lot of noise while on the spin cycle

If the washload is not distributed evenly around the agitator when the final spin cycle starts, the tub will be unbalanced and will wobble and thump loudly. This is especially true if you are washing something heavy such as a rug or jeans. You may have to distribute the load more than once to get results.

Kenmore 70 series mod 110.24722300 the top part opf the agitator seems really wobbly, when spinning. is ther a bearing out or what? thanks

Does it agitate properly when in washing cycle? If it agitates "sloppily" there is a little kit you can buy to replace the agitator parts that get worn out. (they are called "dogs"). It doesn't cost much and is fairly easy to do.

The agitator my also just be loose. You can pry off the cap and tighten it up, but I suspect the dogs are worn.

Agitator is loose

Does the plastic cap unscrew (CCW)? If you get it off, there is a plastic block attached to the top of the shaft that should just pull off. Check it for cracking or splines that are torn out inside--replace it if damaged. Make sure the cap screws down tight.
