Re: washing machine basket tilts to one side when washing

Possibly one of the balancing weights, that are held by cables, have dislodged or the cable has come off a pulley. remove covers to look for a faulty condition such as this. I'm not sure of this model's balancing system, but it sounds like this type of problem.

Amana top loader washing maching permanently tilted drum & loud banging during spin cycle

I guess you washed some curtains and blankets in it that it spun unbalanced. There are 2 things. One is the one of the suspension springs broke off. Another is the center post is already bent. You may have to check inside. If you are handy, you can take off the cover and check. Suspension springs are dangerous when being replaced. You may have to wear a pair of goggles. With the centerpost, it is difficult to replace. I suggest you call a technician for this.

Water is leaking from my washing machine when I am washing clothes and I keep getting the LD error code and UL but it is not unbalanced.

Grab hold of the inner basket & pull up & down. Does it move up & down? If not clothing is stuck between the inner & outer basket. Tilt the unit back & use a flash light & shine it through the clear plastic & see if you see clothes in it.

In the middel of the wash it stops and the creen haas a fon it?

Tilt the unit back & shine a light through the clear plastic of the outer basket & see if you see clothing stuck in between the outer basket & inner basket. The floating basket should lift up & down if you grab the inner basket from the inside & lift up.

Washer has trouble spnning

Ensure the basket is centered within the case, they can get tilted buy heavy objects washed or spun inside. A little force may be required to center the basket by grabbing the top of the basket sides and wiggling.
Inspect for a sock or other material caught betwen the basket & case around the top under the gasket.

Basket is off balance. Basket is tilted (not

make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

Oil leaked out of the washer transmission

This may be a bit above your skills but first unplug the machine. You will need to purchase a special tool to do this job. It is called a spanner wrench, and it removes the drive block nut securing the inner basket. Remove the agitator, by removing the cap, and loosening the bolt on the inside. Loosen (using the tool), the nut securing the drive block to the basket drive. Locate and remove the 2 screws that secure the console to the cabinet. Tilt the console backwards, and remove the 2 gold clips, and disconnect the lid switch connector. Tilt the entire cabinet forward, and off of the base. Remove the inner tub, and remove the basket drive block. Remove the clips securing the pump to the motor, but do not remove the hoses. Remove the motor clips, motor and unplug the motor wiring plug, and take the wiring clip out of the transmission. Gently, tilt the entire machine to a 45 degree angle, so that you can access the underside of the machine. Remove the 3 bolts that secure the transmission (1/2 inch). Carefully, pull the transmission out of the machine. You must remove the transmission and open the top of it and fill it with 85 or 90 weight gear oil. I suggest that you replace the clutch at the same time. The clutch is the round thing sitting no top of the transmission. The basket drive is the thing sticking out of center of the machine, with the plastic tab hanging down. Pull the basket drive out of the tube. Inspect the basket drive hub, to make sure that there is no oil on the hub. If so, make sure you clean it very well. Be as quick as possible, because oil will start leaking out of the shaft bearings since the machine is tilted, and you cannot stop it. Make sure that you use the proper spring for the brake and clutch, and then the re-assembly is the reverse of what you have done.

You may want to call a repair man!

Kenmore wash basket

Hi pagrzych,
If the tub is getting out of ballance you can first make sure the rear automatic feet are leveled by tilting the washer forward and dropping it back down, the rear feet are made to automatically level when the machine is tilted forward. If after leveling you still have a problem the kenmore washers have springs that center the wash basket into place. Pull the washer out and tilt it back you should be able to see the springs on the back bottom of the wash tub. The are directly behind the motor and transmission. These springs can be easily replaced if broken or if they have came out of position. Good luck with your repair and I really hope this helped you. Please rate me if I helped.
