Missing balance ring clips on whirlpool washer model # LXR9445JQ0

Whirlpool washer model # LXR9445JQ0
The (8) balance ring clips have fallen off and gone through the pump causing it to seize up. I have removed 3 of the clips and the other 5 must have gone through and out the drain. I can't find them. Will it hurt to run my washing machine without the balance ring clips? It is still working, I have tried it without clothes in it and the pump works and the drum spins. It just makes a really loud noise when the drum stops spinning and the balance ring keeps going for a bit. I just need it to work for a bit until I can buy a new set. Thanks, Monica

How do you remove the cover for Cabrio Platinum Top Load Washer to see if clothes have gotten stuck between wall & basket of washer. I can not wash one load without getting the UL Off Balance Code!


it is extremely unlikely that clothes have got to the position you mentioned
unbalance comes from
1--- clothes out of balance in the tub--too much on one side
2--machine not level on the floor --- rubber feet missing from adjuster bolts
3-- suspension rods and insulators for the tub broken or missing
these suspension rubbers/ plastics break on a regular basis and allow the tub to sit at an unlevel state causing an unbalance situation when spinning
top covers are either held in place with screws at the front and back ( under plastic trim buttons ) or simply clip on to the side walls at the top
talk with a service agent as to how to remove the top or download a workshop manual for the machine from the net

Whirlpool top load washer is running across the floor. I've replaced all springs. I've also made it 100% level. What's the next step?


The following images identify an invention that most newer machines included, The ring about half filled with water automatically balances the basket of the washers. If the water has leaked out or the ring has failed the machine will not achieve balance. The ring is replaceable by qualified DIY.

Most units only have the ring on the top of the basket, but some as the bottom image shows have two.

Hope this helps?

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.

My Whirlpool front load washer is out of balance when spinning. It makes a loud noise. How do I get the tub back in balance? GHW9200LQ is the model.


Hi,
Whirlpool front load washers have shock absorbers that helps them in moving the washer around the place. Due to regular usage of the washer it may tend to break.This will result in drum hammering sound . To clear this problem pull the bottom front off and check the shocks. Typically the rings where the pins go through are where they will break. You have to grab them and should have a complete check by moving them to see that whether they are broken.
Thank you !!

My washer is out of balance when spinning.


Hi,
Your problem is probably much more than the washer being out of balance. The front load washers have shock absorbers that hold them from moving all over the place. These have a habit of breaking. Then the drum hammers and sounds like things are flying apart. Pull the bottom front off and check the shocks. Typically the rings where the pins go throuhg are where they will break. Sometimes at first they look okay and you have to grab them and move them to see that they are broken.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Can you repair balance ring/tub unit on whirlpool direct drive washer or must you just buy a new tub? I think the fluid has leaked from the balance ring.


some units had balance held in place by clips those could be replaced separately those where balance slipped around outer edge of tub are not a separate part that can be ordered

Whirpool Washer, Loads become unbalaced in spin cycle.


it has a bad balance ring on the top of the basket no so hard but not that easy either
you have to remove the case to get to the balance ring
go to www.sears.com and go to parts and put in the full model number, under the parts tab in appliances and select view brakedown and it will explain it better with you seeing it
