You might have broken the hub. is there little pieces of blackish grey metal on your clothes? if so that could be your problem. the hub is covered by the base of the agitator, remove the agitator by pulling it up (it is very tight) starting to fill the tub with hot water will help to remove it

Where is my suspension spring on my washing machine


The suspension springs on your washing machine are used to either suspend the tub assembly from the cabinet or to stabilize the tub assembly to the washer base. They also absorb the vibration of the wash basket while the machine is in the spin cycle. Occasionally these springs will become damaged, stretched or detached which can cause excessive noise and vibration from your washer during the spin cycle. You will need to remove the top or front panel of the washing machine to gain access to the suspension springs. Inspect for stretching or damage and ensure that they are securely attached at both ends. Use caution when replacing the springs as they are under tension and always wear the proper protective clothing. We recommend that you replace all of the suspension springs if any are determined to be defective.

Washer make noise doing spin cycle smell smoke make the power cord warm to touch


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site Joe. Usually, if a washer makes noises during spinning, it means the drive basket is broken. Make sure your pulley's are not sticking and rubbing the belt. This causes the basket to be unstable during the spin cycle. As far as the smell of smoke, try checking the belt and make sure it is not worn or loose. Inspect the motor to check for noises, grinding, or smoke. Your transmission may be burning up. Usually, the cord will remain warm, but not hot. The washer may be working extra if a belt is sticking or during the spinning process. If you have any other questions Joe, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

The washer is 2.5 years old. The Basket has no stability during the spin and wash cycle. The basket bangs against the side of the machine and the machine bounces around the laundry room moving sometimes...


they do dance well dont they? this is caused by the support springs coming off the drum holder and the drum will have droped a little as well,
take off the top of the washer and look down each side you should see the support springs if the off just hook them back on or fit new one's?
dont leave this as it will pull all the pipes off inside the washer
its an easy fix,

Is some water in the tub of a top loading washer normal?


It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and pump following a wash cycle. This is the low point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket, you have nothing to worry about.

Some model washers also have a balance ring around the perimeter on top of the wash tub that is filled with fluid. This acts as a stabilizer to help keep the washer balanced during the spin cycle. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Machine makes loud banging noise during the spin cycle


The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.

Spin cycle


This is a repeat, but maybe the same result.  Remove the front cover (usually two clips between the top and the front, move it around) and check each of the springs that hold the unit to the base.  Have found that just one spring would cause a out-of-balance condition.  When you open the lid, does the basket seem to be leaning one way or the other?  If so, look on the side that shows more than the other.  Also, reach in and grab the inner basket to see if it seems loose.  Have had the basket drive mount break halfway through and caused it to roll really bad.  Let me know what you find out, or if you need futher help.  Jim

Thrashing Spin Cycle


If the basket is loose, you will have to replace the basket( this includes the spider arm you are asking about) and the rear half of the tub( this includes the bearing). Be sure to check the owners manual for your warranty information. The basket and tub may very well still be covered by warranty. You will have to pay the labor, usually around $200.

If you do decide to purchase the parts and repair it yourself, post back and I will try to walk you through it.

Just remember this,

 it is much easier to remove the inner workings from the rear than the front, and

this is a 2 man job.

1 person can do it but it is sooo much easier with some one to help set the tub assembely out as a unit.
