This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is a description of how to do it.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

How connect cisco 5015 vpn with barracuda linkbalancer 330


Your Internet gateway <--- primary router

Port #1 on primary router <---> VPN server
Port #2 on primary router <--> Load Balancer
Load Balancer <--> web-server #1
Load Balancer <--> web-server #2
Load Balancer <--> web-server #3

VPN traffic enters your network, through the router to the VPN server, and then VPN-server back through the router to your internal servers. Web-traffic goes through the Load Balancer, for distribution to the collection of servers.

Kenmore washer lid locks tub moves for about 3 second


Have you tried balancing the load? Your washer is either sensing the load is off balance or displaying the effects of a tub problem. So step one is balance the load. Let me know if that doesn't help.

Out of balance switch will not stop washer when load becomes out of balance.


Your switch is bad. You don't necessarily need the switch. Snip the wires off either side of the switch and fuse them together with a wire connector.

Please settle a dispute with my husband. my washer has an off balance load. do I have to remove things, or will adjusting the load eventually work to even it out?


the off balance sensor won't adjust the load,, it will notify you if the load is so far out of balance that it needs to be re adjusted . I hope this reply doesn't effect the rating I will receive :)

Spins out of balance even emty

This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load


The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

During final spin cycle a code that says DC of balance load and there is a bang from the tube


The DC code that comes up is just saying that the load is "off balance" to resolve this, open the washer and redistribute the last and restart.

The bang fron the tub that you hear is just from the load being off balance. Generally it's just the weight difference on the tub when the washer stops spinning. This is normal for an off balance load and is nothing to be overly concerned about.

If you are getting the DC code a lot, take a look at the types of loads you are washing. Are they small? Is it a mix of small and large items? Is it a few large items? This may be the answer to why you are having off balance issues. The Neptune is a very large washer, and can get off balance very easily with smaller loads. Try making loads larger or if you are washing for example sheets, try washing them in 3's. This will make it easier for the washer to balance the load.

Good luck! Please let me know if this was helpful!

Is multihoming is best way to solve loadbalancing in network?


Load Balancing is a complicated issue.  Generally speaking multi-homing or having multiple NICs and IPs on one server is NOT the best way to Load balance.  You should probably start with looking up DNS Round Robin Load-Balancing.

Balancing


This type of thing should not be required. Front load washing machines (well, topload too i guess) will balance themselves out for the spin cycle unless the machine is grossly overloaded.

Good luck.
