A Bad Bearing or broken tub supports are the cause of this.

You can get a new one through Sears Parts Direct, either go to a local store, call them, or check out their online website. Let me know how this turns out

To start ensure that the machine is balanced. Ant that the floor is at level.

If the machine is balanced, unbalance can be caused by an object that slipped under the spin basket. If an something end up under the spin basket it will cause out of balance. To check this remove the spin baket and check underneat.

Here instructions.

If that does not fix the problem, then it is a faulty control board.

Helllo James. I can help you. Every waher has to be level front to back and side to side. Check yours and adjust it if it is not level.

That said, if your machine is level and still always unbalanced the problem is a bad drum bearing. To check for this by spinning the drum by hand and checking for excessive play. If you don't know what is considered excessive check on your friends washing machimes to get a sense of what is normal.

Finally, it is also possible that the drum spider is broken. If you have excessive play you will most likely have to have a washing machine tech. fix it.

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..

Is it always loud or just when it is a full load. If the load is unbalanced it will be loud. Most F/L washers today have some kind of unbalanced load detection, but they are not all that great. If it spins quietly when empty it is just an unbalanced load. Don't over load and don't mix rugs with clothes, pillows, etc...

My washer's digital time screen changes from the time remaining to a symbol that looks like "UL".


This error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected.

Click the following to learn more about unbalanced loads in the BravosTM washers. The example is for an impeller washer but is applicable to washers with agitators.

Is the wash load balanced?

If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause.

Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed against the corners?

If the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened. See the Installation Instructions for details.

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

REPLACE YOUR SUSPENSION RODS. You can get them at a discount applicance parts store online for about $60. Our washer is about 8 years old and has been getting unbalanced on every load. I replaced the suspension rods tonight and and it solved the problem.
