SOURCE: Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator

I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off


GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: washer unbalanced on final spin, cannot stop the unbalance

Hi Sparky,
The reason it's out of balance is because the skate plate shoes are worn out and need to be replaced. You'll have to access the washer in order to do this. There's a video available that shows how to do it.

After you have opened up the washer you'll see that the tub is sitting on a three legged pedestal. The shoes are in between the skate plate and the top of the pedestal. Here's a picture (and part number) to illustrate...

bc62875.jpg

Do one shoe at a time by lifting the skate plate off of the pedestal about an inch or so and wedging it there (I use a hammer handle as a wedge). The shoes simply snap into place, so the old ones will have to be snapped out of place first. Use another hammer and tap the shoes out of their sockets from underneath.

NOTE! ---> When you place the new shoe into its' place DO NOT try to snap it in!!! (if you do, you'll break it) Just let it rest in it's place for now. Remove your wedge and allow the full weight of the tub to sit on it. Then move on to the next shoe and repeat.

After all 3 shoes have been replaced it's time to snap them in completely. Do this from the top of the tub. Using your body weight, press down on the tub from above on all three corners (where the shoes are located). This will apply even pressure to the top of the shoe and keep it from breaking. You should have all 3 snapped in now. Use a flashlight and look underneath to verify (you should see the tabs of the shoes poking all the way through the pedestal).

Now all that's left is to rebuild the washer cabinet and start some laundry!

SG

p.s. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but this job can be done easily within an hour and the parts only cost ~$12.00!

SOURCE: Balance spring fell off washing machine. Where

Check the Sears parts site for diagrams of all the major components. Replace the model number shown (11020802990) with your model number (found on cabinet when you open the lid)

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=11020802990

Look at the diagram for the machine base and you should see the springs and where they connect.

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..

Kenmore washer, model# 110.20022011. Will the tub ring cause the washer to be off balance?


probably not
the machine becomes unbalanced for several reason
with not clothes
the machine is not level
the tub suspension has failed and the tub is not level ( possible your tub ring statement)
if filled with clothes
uneven materials --heavy trousers on one side and light fabrics on the other
have a washer mechanic check out the fault for a proper diagnosis.

Washer gets out of balance during the spin cycle


Hello

Either the wash or laundry is unbalanced and moving to one side or the machine is no longer level on the floor.

Try putting in less clothes or seperate heavy from light.

Check all four corners of washing machine,while empty.For level,there should be two movable floor slider you can screw in or out to level machine.

The tub is permanently unbalanced. I tried to


Most likely, one of the balancing springs around the basket has come off or broken. With the machine empty and off, wiggle the agitator in all four directions and see if you can feel any difference from one point to another. You may very likely find a replacement spring for free at your nearest dump or appliance repair shop out back somewhere. This is a rare occurance although I have seen it a few times throughout my career. Thank you, Dana

Tub bangs loudly


there may be 3 to 4 load springs on the underside of the machine that attatches to the tub. if one of these breaks which often do on my machine. They will cause the machine to become unbalanced and bang.

Leaking water under washer and off balance? What's wrong?


You have two problems the more major problem is the water leaking. If this happens when the machine is filling then replace the water inlet valve or hoses going to it or to the tub itself. Next for the unbalanced part if it is the tub. Then check the bottom pulley and make sure that it is not bent. If it is the machine itself then the feet on te bottom of the machine screw in up or down and that is how you level your machine. If this has helped you please rate. Thank you

Washer goes into unbalance mode


Check the springs and spring mounts,(might be broken or not on right), also could be something wrong with the balance switch (where the tub hits the switch).It could be mis aligned or defective. Check the springs first.
