You say that the machine is level, but sometimes using a level isn't enough. Each leg of the machine must bear 25% of the weight/force. The machine generates extreme centrifugal force when spinning. I have used a level and had the bubble perfect, but still had the machine walk all over. I would make some adjustments on the supports before I tore into the washer looking for other possible problems. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Have a Roper (Whirlpool) top load washer Model RAL 5144BWO, that vibrates excessively. I ran it without any clothes, and still vibrated excessively. I watched it go through the spin cycle with the lid...


Hi, Well it sounds like either one of the tension springs that hold the outer clear tub to the frame down below came off or broke, or that the basket or gearbox shaft is warped. One other thing to try is the back feet on those washers are spring loaded to take out some of the vibration, if those feet arent level it will make the washer shake. it is easy to reset those so they are level. Stand infront of the washer and grab the back of the unit and pull it towards you so that you raise the rear legs, then simply set it back down. To check the spring you will have to take the outer shell off and look at the springs that are at the bottom of the tub assembly holding the tub down on the frame. Good luck and I hope I was some help.

WHEN SPINNING, SOUNDS LIKE GEAR IS STRIPPING


This is usually caused by the coupler very inexpensive and easy to fix. This video will walk you thru the process. Scroll down to the video on taking apart a whirlpool stlye washer it goes thru replacing the coupler properly. Your washer will come apart the same as in the video.

Washer walks all over when spinning how do we get to the load levelers to fix it


does this happen even if the load on the machine is reduced? i mean less clothes............... usually there is a stabilizing liquid in the upper part of the drum which balances the drum in case of a tilt now this doesn't leak as it is sealed

Spins so harder washer walks across the room. the washer is level. the load is balanced. is it the tub inside the washer that is not level


Engage your lid switch so that washer will spin in spin cycle and watch it spin. At end of cycle when washer shuts down the tub should come to a fairly sudden stop if it doesn't then you need to have the brake worked on. If it does post your model number and i'll advise further.

UNBALANCED WASHER


Does it happen all the time, with no connection to laundry quantity? In case of a positive answer, it sound like a shock absorber issue. Could be that it's moved from its place or become malfunction and should be replaced. Good luck
