It sounds like one of the dampeners is lose. that will prevent you from ever balancing it. Try with unplugging it for 30 minutes and than try again. if that does not help check the dampeners

Front load washer, try to spin, but stops altogether and want wash it fills up but want wash


Make sure that you don't over load the washer. As it starts to spin back and forth it is sensing the load balance as the clothes fall back and forth. If it doesn't sense a balanced load because the clothes can't fall back and forth it will not start the wash process. Refuse your load and try again.

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 !!

How to balance a front load GE washer. I bought this from a friend. It does fine when it has nothing in it, but when I put a load in, it nearly jumps off the ground. I know now that there are some type of...


Hi,

I'm not aware of any "balance things that go in the back" as you put it. if by chance you are refering to the transportation/shipping bolts, they need to be removed when the unit is in use and only neccessary for moving the washer.

Try this first **UNPLUG the unit from the wall** before calling a tech.

# 1...make sure you use "HE" detergent in any front load washer, including this one.

You can pull off the bottom service panel (2 screws) on the front of the washer and look to see the shock absorber's or the concrete counter weights aren't broken. while you're at it, pull off the top and inspect the suspension springs are intact to the cabinet/chassis.

start there

good luck

My 9150 doesn't spin well and my clothes are very wet, when they come out. Then when I try to spin & drain only, it wants to run for 4 hours. Looking at the problems how good of a product did I buy.


from the description you are giving, i would guess that: 1. the "coin-catcher" ahead of the pump is plugged. 2. the tub is overloaded. 3. the loads are heavy, bulky [ blankets, jeans, towels]. when a load is too big or it is all very absorbent materials, the machine tries to balance the load before it goes into a final spin, it will not spin on high if it cannot balance - remember, ten towels or pairs of jeans soaked with water is darned heavy - mix the loads i'm familiar with this machine because i have one, i repair washers and dryers as part of my job, in my opinion, the duet is the best and most reliable washer available

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.

Loud banging during spin cycle

Washer unbalanced apparently


There is supposed to be a load balance sensor which detects out of balance loads then reverses the motor to re-balance and try again. If your washer is chunking along out of balance, perhaps the sensor is not operating properly. I have heard rumors of bad electronics with The Axxis.
