Hi, It sounds like the platform the tub sits on needs readjusted. The platform is three piece and it probably got out of shape. It is hard to describe how to adjust it. If you look at it close enough, you will probably see the area out of position. The only other thing that would cause it to shake bad is if the spring from the rear tub bracket to the rear frame rail is off.
I hope this helps you.

There is a skid plate between the basket support and the A frame. If that is not positioned correctly it will shake. Also make sure the machine has leveled out by tipping forward and allowing the self leveling legs to operate(making sure they move freely)

My washing machine GE HydroWave is acting up and I took it apart, where the tub is and I think there are parts missing so I want to know the parts of machine

Check the coupling between motor and tub. Most times that is the problem 2 brackets and motor comes out. If the couplings are round inside. That is the problem. Most times that happens by over loading washer or washing carpets. Bed spreads etc

The spinning brush on the side kept falling off. I would put it back on as the little screw usually remained with the brush. Last time it fell off (it has every time I've used it) I lost the tiny little...

Its so annoying to find Roomba after he's finished cleanin only to see that once again he's lost his brush. How to keep your Roomba from losing his brush- items needed: quick steel putty (local hardware store), crazy glue, original screw (or similar), toothpick, and screwdriver. It seems to be that Roomba loses his brush because the threading in the plastic insert the screw goes attached to gets worn-out, so even when you put the screw back in it'll eventually fall out while he's working. Begin by cutting off a very tiny piece of the putty (follow instructions on package) and stick that into the screw hole. Now that it's filled up, use the toothpick to create a hole inside the plastic screw hole where the screw normally fits. You go will windup taking most of the filler material out as the final fix winds up using very little putty. Let the putty dry per the manufacturer instructions. Once it is dry use the screw to create the new threading in the steel putty. Do this by screwing the screw into the insert slowly backing it in and backing it out a little at a time. Try not to wobble the screw as you do this. Once you get a good fit take the screw back out, now it's time to put the brush back in. Put in a couple of drops of crazy glue in the hole and put the brush and screw back in. Let it dry for at least overnight just to be sure. And that's it! If you're not very hands-on it might be better to let somebody else do it for you, you don't want to get the steel putty or crazy glue into any of the moving parts and then ruin the assembly.

My washing machine, Kenmore model #11092480200 stopped agitating and spinning. Looked under machine and saw a small black rubber piece with small plastic pegs, that I assume held it in place. No belt on...

Those little pegs probably cam from the motor coupling. You are correct, this washer does not use a drive belt. It is a direct-drive system that uses a motor coupling in place of a drive belt.

The following link explains how to access the coupler and replace it:

The part number is included with the instructions I provided. Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part number I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The coupler is usually sold as part of their in-store inventory. The average cost of a motor coupling is about $15.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replace Coupling, Now it's making a rapid CLICKING noise.

That dark brown gunk is the oil from the gearcase (transmission). If you had the washer tipped back, or laid it down, you shouldn't have. The oil will leak out. Leaking oil is also a symptom of a transmission going bad. It sounds like you need to replace the gearcase now. They aren't that expensive if you shop around. and carry them. The part number is 3360629. The following link explains how to replace one if you decide to perform this repair yourself:

If you have any questions, plese let me know. I hope this helps you.

Top Loading Washer stops abruptly at end of spin cycle or when lid is opened.

The ddc may not have been installed correctly. The tranny shaft and motor shaft should be flush with the new coupling gears.
If you laid the machine down to do the repair you caused additional problems with other components.

Washing machine drum is very wobbly

* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

Maytag washer pours water out bottom instead of filling up

Check the water pump for physical damage from the move. If the washer was laid on it's side, you may have either snapped off the pump outlet or broke the pump body. You may have broekn the body of the water inlet valve fill flume. A visual examination should provide a lot of insight as to what the problem is.

Platter or motor or what?

Been seeing a lot of problems like this on the newer decks. if the lights instead of moving smoothly are moving a bit, then stopping a little, then moving a bit more. or just wobbling a little bit usually has something to do with the motors... I have also just had to have mine replaced to was having the same problem.... expensive

Washing machine not spining

You may have a problem with the rotor position sensor. This sensor is situated on the motor windings and should really be replaced by a qualified tech.
