Try leveling the machine. Usually the front "feet" turn, allowing them to be moved up and down. If you have an actual level, this could help.

Spin cycle is going on balance


Betty, if you suggesting the machine is out of balance/ causing the machine to jump around in spin cycle
1. it may be due to a heavy wet load ,like towels unbalancing the machine, try less load or slower spin ,then fast spin
2. could be concrete balancing block inside machine has come loose, both problems causing a unbalancing affect on the spin cycle.

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..

Hotpoint top load unbalanced


Darla heavy objects such as towels and jeans not evenly distributed in the washer will cause this to occur, open lid let washer come to a stop and then reposition clothes


If it is unbalanced as in the whole machine rocks even when not running then the rear levelers are out of position, pull top of washer towards you tilting the whole machine, towards you, the rear levelers will self adjust unless jammed, you may need help tilting the unit

I took my basket out because of an unbalancing problem and water is trapped inside of the basket. The water will not come out. Will this cause my unbalancing problem?


Normally excessive shaking etc is caused by 3 things.
1) Unbalanced load. 2) Brocken spring that suspend drum. 3) Dampers under drum lost damping.
I would expect 3 as likely cause if machine works ok except for when spinning.

Dryer heat doesn't come on


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Unbalanced load stopped machine will not restart why?


On some of the maytag washers when an unbalanced load stops the maching it blows an internal fuse located behind the front panel on some stacking washer and dryer machines and under the counsel on some of the top load machines. ON the top load machines it is recomended that you change the lid switch with the fuse that comes with it.
There are two screws located on each side of the counsel. Remove the two screws and tilt the counsel up and locate the lid switch, fuse assembly. You can check the fuse at this point.

Kenmore stacked washer and dryer was washer spins but out of balance


Usually there are tension springs or bands that keep the basket pulled evenly in all directions. If one is broke it will cause the load to be unbalanced. You can observe these by unpluging the machine and looking under the drum. Good luck.

Shaking


Most common cause for the machine to shake during the spin cycle is due to a unbalanced load. A load of a couple of small bulky items or a small load in general may not be able to distribute the weight properly causing the machine to be unbalanced. It is best to wash full loads whenever possible. We have a brand new front loader as well, our first load about took the walls down...We just tossed a couple things in to see how it worked....thats how I learned to wash full loads. Now with the knowledge of why it shook so bad, we have had no more problems. Hope this helps

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating
