SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine

check that the machine ramps up to spin speed reasonably and distributes the clothes- ie doesn't spring straight up to spin speed. if this is ok then the fault may well be the shock absorbers located at the bottom of the machine and going from base to tub. check also that the counterweights are intact

The only way to realign this is toremove the sping under the lip at the door portion of the seal,this is a tough one youll need a third and forth hand.

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.

Why does it bump and bang out of balance?


I had a front loading washer (not Kenmore) that bumped, banged, and walked all over the floor. Called a service tech. The balancers are made of concrete and one of them was loose. Ended up making a mess as the balancer that was loose finally broke and we had chipped concrete dust everywhere. Not pretty!!! Ours was covered under warranty.

What will cause my Whirlpool washing machine to set on low speed spin cycle?


The machine uses automatic load sensors to balance the load and when you put something in the machine that is big, like a comforter, it knows that it cannot balance that item. So with a front loader it wont spin at high speed because it would be off balance and either damage the machine or the machine would "walk" because of the off balance motion.

Front load washer, try to spin, but stops altogether and want wash it fills up but want wash


Make sure that you don't over load the washer. As it starts to spin back and forth it is sensing the load balance as the clothes fall back and forth. If it doesn't sense a balanced load because the clothes can't fall back and forth it will not start the wash process. Refuse your load and try again.

It doesn't self balance and spin out all the water from clothes. the clothes are very wet, especially jeans. And the washer rocks bad during the spin cycle.

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

My washing machine door says that it is locked when the door is open how can I fix this?


Replace the door switch, but,..... if you order the switch, they may send the switch in a rather large and heavy (and somewhat expensive) box which also contains the lower counter balance for the front of the drum. The reason is that on some machines, the counter balance is shapped in such a way that on certain off balance loads, the counter balance is able to strike the door switch and break it. The new counter balance weight has been re-designed to prevent this from occuring.

When on spin cycle, the washing machine dances across the floor.


Try to level machine. Whe empty try to reset back legs pulling machine from rear up front leaning on front legs. Try to balance your load too.

Balancing


This type of thing should not be required. Front load washing machines (well, topload too i guess) will balance themselves out for the spin cycle unless the machine is grossly overloaded.

Good luck.
