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.

Have a GE WSXH208HWW Spacesaver, Washing Basket is wobbling. What is the problem and can I fix it myself?


2 possible problems. On the outside of the tub front and on the top back are cement counter weights that are bolted to the tub. If they are coming loose, they would cause the tub to go off balance and wobble. If just the stainless inner tub is the one that wobbles, that suggests a bad rear drum bearing. The counter weight problem easy to fix once you get the top and back off and just need re-tightened. The back drum bearing is something even trained techs want to avoid. It requires removing the complete tub/drum assembly from the washer----then splitting the outer tub in half to replace the inner drum and bearing assembly. Cost for parts will be excessive and not worth the repair.

Remove all the load and try to move the drum manually clockwise and anti clockwise. If you notice any friction check the motor separately and the agitator assembly separately.
It could be due to alignment shift causing a wobbly motion or a failure of the bearings.

Drum appears to be loose and makes a lot of noise when on the spin cycle


With the washer empty, spin the wash tub by hand. The drum should be spin true without any noticeable wobbling and spin without much noise. If it wobbles or makes any kind of rubbing or banging noise as you turn it by hand. The problem is that the spider support arms are broken. It is an expensive repair job since the washer has to be completely torn apart and the wash drum needs to be replaced. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

Sounds like coming apart when on fast spin. Thought bearings might be bad but when empty can turn easily by hand like bearings ok. when empty drom can be turned easily and noticed tub can be bounced any...


When you turn it by hand and there is noticable wobble or play in the drum, it could only mean that the spider or support arms are broken. It is an expensive repair. Call the company and see if they will help you out in getting it fixed since the parts alone cost a few hundred dollars. Google "kenmore front load washer problems" to see the problems with these machines. Sorry.

My washer wobbles a lot. I tried to wash a comforter in it and after that it wobbles and the drum is very loose now what might be wrong


If really bad sounds like drum bearings worn to excess......assume you've adjusted the level on the front feet?

Loud banging noise looks like the drum is off set and it damaged the rubber in the front


If the inner wash drum is sagging when it is empty, it probally means that the support arms that hold the drum has failed. If you turn the drum by hand and if you hear any kind of banging noise or the drum wobbles more that a fraction of an inch, then the support or spider arms are broken.

You can't buy the spider arms seperately and must buy a drum and spider as one unit. The cost to repair would be in the hundereds. See the following link to judge for yourself if you want to fix it yourself or have it fixed. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4267953-spiderarm

Maytag washing machine wobbles when spinning. Legs are level so is problem inside?


Check the suspending springs inside. These are attached to to the drum jacket. If the springs are OK check whether the drum is wobbling. Turn by hand and check. Check ball bearings last!!!
