SOURCE: Very loud spin cycle

your bearings i the tub have gone bad. It happens usually if you use powder soap. It doesnt dissolve all the way and gets into the bearings and ruins them. Sorry but this is a pretty expensive fix. When you get it fixed used liquid soap and it shouldnt happen again.

have you tried lower spin speeds? I found with heavy items such as towels and jeans it is best to lower the spin speed. also washing like heavy items on a certain wash cycle is best - i.e. towels on bluky/bedding.

hope that helps.

If this is occurring mostly on heavier loads your clutch may be slipping. If you take a flathead screwdriver and push down the lid switch so the washer will spin with the lid up, grab the inside of the drum. If you can easily stop the drum its most likely a bad clutch. If you tip the washer back and see oil underneath then its probably your transmission leaking oil onto the the clutch causing it to slip (in which case you need transmission and clutch assy). If you see oil I would probably not bother calling a tech it would be a pretty expensive repair.
IF the problem is with the clutch only it may be worth repairing but to replace the clutch you will have to remove the pump, motor, transmission, and the clutch mounts on top. The other less common possibility could be a bad drive block under the inner tub. hope this helps. _MJ_

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

Why does my kemore elite always get out of balance when spinning worst with a light load


When Loading, Always Distribute Clothes Evenly (weight wise) With A Light Load Usually Clothes Will Become On One Side Before End Of Wash Cycle--If You Look Before Spin Cycle And This Had Happened, Redistribute and restart from present position (cycle wise)

Whirlpool is still made in USA, I think. Avoid electronic timers and geegaws you don't need.
