Question about Washing Machines
HI. There can be several causes and the problem is worse with some units more than others.The most common cause is an unbalanced wash load. Open the lid, and attempt to redistribute the clothing to balance the weight. Heavy loads, especially things like comforters, are more likely to become unbalanced than small loads. If you do a lot of heavy loads, you should consider a heavy duty/large capacity washer when it comes time to replace your current unit. Now; A washer must be level both from side to side as well as from front to back. Washing machines have adjustable feet to enable you to level them. Make sure the unit is level. this is very important. It may have become mis-adjusted, due to age. Secondly; The outer tub/basket, is supported by springs, pistons or counterweight springs to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons/shock absorbers, may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed. The necessary actions are to open the cabinet for inspection. Once access is gained, Check to be sure that the springs and counter springs are still attached to their respective section on the tub. If they are stretched or not attached, replace them. There are also three tub pads and three suspension pads. Inspect them for ware and replace if needed.
