Can someone help with this problem: When loaded with clothes, it seems like no matter how I distribute the clothes, the washer clunks like its unbalanced. Do I have a loose drum or something? Can I fix it relatively easy?
Appreciate any help from you techies!
While the washer is washing the drum is sloopy and makes a noise.

Two things might be in play. First, the washer needs to be level and on stable surface. Next the laundry needs to be fairly evenly distributed in the tub. I have had this happen, and sometimes it just needs releveling, particularly if you had a heavy unbalanced load.
Imbalance error. Cause : The load is to small, the appliance is tilted, laundry is gathered to one side, non distributed things are put into the drum.
Move the washing around inside the washing machine to create a more even distribution of weightif you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick
You have a wash Load Unbalance, as you have done, ensure the clothes are evenly distributed in the drum, so it is either that or the balance weights have come off the drum inside...I have also seen it when a bearing has gone bad. probably going to have to get someone to have an inspection.
has the bearings been replaced recently or may need replacing it has been known that should a bearing get a bit sloppy then the drum rubs on the outer caseing wares a hole in it the outher casing is plastic
UE code means an imbalance error. Either the load is too small, the appliance is tilted, laundry is gathered to one side or a non distributable things are put into the drum. Make sure the unit is placed in level location and distribute the load evenly inside the drum. Do not load the unit with on-distributable items.
HI thanks for your question. ALL front load washers have the same problem.MY solution every wash use 1 cup of vinegar in time will solve the problem. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.
Is the residue coming from the back or front of the drum? Most dryers are equipped with 2 drum roller supports in the rear under the drum. You may have a drum roller that is going bad and some of the rubber residue is getting past the drum seal. Some dryers are quipped with an additional pair of drum rollers under the front of the drum as well. I would check all the drum rollers to see if they are all in good shape. A definite symptom of a bad drum roller is finding black residue along the outside of the drum where the rollers ride. You will have to open the dryer cabinet to see the outside of the drum. Also, check the rear drum seal to make sure it is not crimped or folded inwards in the drum. The felt seal in the back should should ride evenly all the way around the drum and should not be that visible inside the drum itself. That is, you may see some of the seal, but you shouldn't see part of it folded inside the drum or bits of it tattered or torn. I hope this makes sense to you. Let me know if this helps.
UE code is an "unbalance error". Believe it or not, it is possible to unbalance a front load style washing machine. Usually caused by trying to wash smaller loads where the drum spins to try to distribute the weight evenly. With less laundry, you cannot distribute enough weight evenly around the drum and sometimes will cause an unbalanced load. If your problem is not a simple loading issue, it could be the balance sensor, loose wiring, or possibly the main control board. I hope this helps.
