During spin cycle, washing machine is bouncing around the room

During the spin cycle, the washing machine is moving around...almost like it bounces. We had a Whirlpool person out to check in Sept, told us that we hadn't leveled it, and said he'd fixed it but it's still doing it, worse now that a couple of months ago. We don't over load our machine. It doesn't appear like it needs leveling.

Sounds like the drum, balance weights have come off, to me. This will cause those symptoms.

Water leaking on fast spin


hi Eamon.
this is what i found from the internet.
Washing machine leaks on spin Last updated on February 6th, 2017
Sometimes a washing machine leaks on spin, but not before. If this is the case, either it's going into spin with too much water inside, or something may only be leaking under the pressure and tub movement caused by spinning.
If you can see water running out of the soap drawer during spin it's probably gone into spin without pumping the water away properly. If it wasn't pumping water out at all it would not go into spin, but a partial obstruction can reduce the flow enough to allow a spin with the water unable to escape fast enough. This causes water to be forced up into the drawer or out of the steam vent at the back. If you suspect this check the last section of this article - Washer leaks from drawer
If water is coming from underneath when it spins then it's more likely to be caused by something leaking only under pressure. Check the door seal all around inside for slits and small holes, especially higher up, which may only open up and let water out when the washer is bouncing around on spin.
Other possible causes are hoses inside the machine which have small holes which open up during spin or which leak where they connect to the tub under spin conditions. These type of leaks often leave tell-tale rust or dry detergent marks. After that there could be a crack or small hole high up in the plastic outer tub which only gets exposed to water when it's forced around the tub during spin.
You are looking for something that is moving and allowing water out when the tub bounces around under load, or something high letting water out when it gets thrashed around the top half of the machine on spin. If you can't see anything obvious get a washing machine engineer

Washer moving around during spin cycle


adjust the load, seriously,, you have more weight on one side than the other which causes an uneven load and at the higher RPM's it makes the machine bounce around

Just moved our washer across country. Now the washing machine is bouncing all over the room during spin cycle. The machine is level. Does it have weights inside that can be adjusted?


yes and no, yes has weights, no can not be adjusted. inspecth the washer for any bent-dents in cabinet and under machine, legs etc. check floor for uneven tiles. last, is possible that internal damage has occurs during transport or a spring came loose in transit. to verify that you have to open iside and inspect.

good luck to you.

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,

First time I ran the electrolux washer, it bounced around during the spin cycle and gashed a hole in my wall. We can't run it without it bouncing violently. When it is not running, all four corners are...


Sounds like it could be a few things. the tub sits on shocks attached to the bottom of the machine. If one of those are broken when it goes into high speed spin ght thing will bounce around violently. Also the tub hands on springs from the top. Its uncommon but one of those could have broken or let go. The cabinet will not move but the internal components can be destroyed by it.

Spin Cycle - washer starts bouncing around room even though level


There are about 6 pairs of springs to hold the bottom tube to the bottom chassis. If some of these came off from designed positions, the tube won't be in balance then the washer starts bouncing off. Make sure these pairs of springs in place then you have no problem.

The washer bounces during spin cycle


Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.
