It is most likely a bad center bearing. Was it loud when it sup last? If it was then the bearings are going bad. If not spin the tub by hand and see if its stuck if it is work it back and forth and see if you can break it free. That is still a bad bearing. Also try spinning the basket by hand as fast as you can and see if the bearing sound like they are grinding or smooth. If the bearing seem ok then push down on the tub ring and try to push the tub and basket down it should take quite a bit a pressure to push the tub down is its easy and you can bounce the tub up and down it the washer like a basket ball then you need new support rod they keep the tub stable during spin and when the springs on these go bad they allow the tub to bounce during spin and that causes the unit to go out of balance and stops spinning.

Testimonial: "Thank you, it may be the support rod. It doesn't make any noise and it isn't stuck but I can push it down somewhat. Thank you for your help. The washer is about 7 years....is it worth fixing or would it be better to just get a new washer? This one came with my house, and I've had issues before."

Whirlpool Cabrio model WTW7300X washing machine


Did you inspect the area around the drum? You have to take the top off to do that. Then there is a water sensor on the left side. The error that you get is from the drum speed sensor.

Samsung b1445v front load washing machine will not pass prog. 8 even when empty, then code ue


This is an error caused by the cycle advance which acts like a timer. The main control board can cause this issue. Diagnostic testing will need to be performed to determine the cause of this problem

Wtw6600 washer has UL code and has trouble agitating and spinning.


The UL code means Unbalanced Load. Open the lid and move your clothes around so they are distributed evenly. Your spin cycle will then work normally.

Unit had a f51 code. took back off and top control panel off check all connections and run it a couple of cycles and it seems to be working now. But it sounds like i put a turbo in it. It is alot louder...


The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit.
This can be caused by several different problems.
Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem.
A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation.

With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily.
If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub.

You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board.

A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.

During spin cycle it becomes unbalanced and it beeps and stops


It sounds like the sensing arm of the out of balance switch assembly is wrongly set. Get the guy back to do the job properly at no charge!

Samsung P1053S error code UE


The UE is an onbalanced load fault code.. Unplug the machine to clear the code.. leave it unplugged for about 10 mins and try to run it empty.  If it persists you would be advised to contact a service technician.  Bust of luck
