Hi

You have an uneven load. Stop the washer, and reposition the clothes. make sure it is even and you should not have this problem. the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
Also are all four corner feet set on the floor? They need to be. Some are auto adjusting but some may require you to turn them to screw them lower or higher. Make sure all four feet are firmly planted... the washer shouldn't rock in any direction. Then.. (or if you have already done that) if it still rocks.. you should check underneath .. there should be an access panel behind it. if you can move it away from the wall and take, a look underneath while it is running you may find something loose.

Water leaking on fast spin


hi Eamon.
this is what i found from the internet.
Washing machine leaks on spin Last updated on February 6th, 2017
Sometimes a washing machine leaks on spin, but not before. If this is the case, either it's going into spin with too much water inside, or something may only be leaking under the pressure and tub movement caused by spinning.
If you can see water running out of the soap drawer during spin it's probably gone into spin without pumping the water away properly. If it wasn't pumping water out at all it would not go into spin, but a partial obstruction can reduce the flow enough to allow a spin with the water unable to escape fast enough. This causes water to be forced up into the drawer or out of the steam vent at the back. If you suspect this check the last section of this article - Washer leaks from drawer
If water is coming from underneath when it spins then it's more likely to be caused by something leaking only under pressure. Check the door seal all around inside for slits and small holes, especially higher up, which may only open up and let water out when the washer is bouncing around on spin.
Other possible causes are hoses inside the machine which have small holes which open up during spin or which leak where they connect to the tub under spin conditions. These type of leaks often leave tell-tale rust or dry detergent marks. After that there could be a crack or small hole high up in the plastic outer tub which only gets exposed to water when it's forced around the tub during spin.
You are looking for something that is moving and allowing water out when the tub bounces around under load, or something high letting water out when it gets thrashed around the top half of the machine on spin. If you can't see anything obvious get a washing machine engineer

My cabrio will not spin or complete a wash cycle. Acts like iit's unbalanced even when empty. Keep getting an F51 error code


it is most likely a bad center bearing. Was it loud when it sup last? If it was then the bearings are going bad. If not spin the tub by hand and see if its stuck if it is work it back and forth and see if you can break it free. That is still a bad bearing. Also try spinning the basket by hand as fast as you can and see if the bearing sound like they are grinding or smooth. If the bearing seem ok then push down on the tub ring and try to push the tub and basket down it should take quite a bit a pressure to push the tub down is its easy and you can bounce the tub up and down it the washer like a basket ball then you need new support rod they keep the tub stable during spin and when the springs on these go bad they allow the tub to bounce during spin and that causes the unit to go out of balance and stops spinning.

Spin cycle is going on balance


Betty, if you suggesting the machine is out of balance/ causing the machine to jump around in spin cycle
1. it may be due to a heavy wet load ,like towels unbalancing the machine, try less load or slower spin ,then fast spin
2. could be concrete balancing block inside machine has come loose, both problems causing a unbalancing affect on the spin cycle.

My washer is very very loud during its spin cycle


There are a number of things that can do this. For a top-load machine, an out-of balance load can get noisy. Many GE washers have bungee-cord type straps at the top of the tub to dampen out-of-balance gyrations. If these break, you get a lot of rattling. Other washers (some older Kenmore models for example) have a spring-and-bar arrangement under the tub. If this freezes up due to rust, or something breaks, your washer will bounce a bit. Older Maytag washers may dance around if the baseplate is worn out. In all washers, bad tub bearings can make a racket; you will often have leakage as well.

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.

During spin cycle, washing machine is bouncing around the room


Sounds like the drum, balance weights have come off, to me. This will cause those symptoms.

Washer bangs loudly in middle of spin cycle


Hello,

Make sure the back spring is still on the back of the tub. That tends to come off sometimes. Check all the other springs while you're down there too. You can balance the unit if you tilt the back side of the washer and then set it back down. it has auto leveling feet. What's happening is once the water is all drained out, the unit will enter the final spin cycle and spin very fast putting the unit off balance so the tub bounces around.

Good luck, let me know if this helped.

The washer bounces during spin cycle


Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.
