YOu dont say what the model number is. There are shock absorbers and springs that hold the basket retainer in place to prevent and dampen any wobble. You have one or more that need to be replaced.

Kenmore Series 80 washer. When the spin cycle starts, the interior basket wobbles and seems off kilter. I emptied the load and it still does it, so it is not an unbalanced load


sounds like you have a bad spin bearing. If the unit is over 4 years old, might not be worth fixing. I recommend not using that unit till you have it fixed or get a new one.

How do i fing out if my washer is still under Warr.? I have a Maytag centennial washer


The standard warranty is 1 year from date of purchase for all parts and labor. I believe the Centennial Series has a 10 year warranty on the wash tub (basket) and motor, parts only. So if your washer is over 1 year old, the pump would not be covered. If I may ask, why do you think the pump is defective? Can you provide the model number of your washer?

Washer wont stay balanced


Possible there is level fault in the floor setting. You can use a simple spirit level and adjust the level of the washer with a tilt to the rear for easy drain. Also check for bearing fault if there is wobbling, check for counter weight or alignment fault of the drum if the frames are rusted.

Washing machine walks while spinning


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. in washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth  is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth

Depending on how old it is, you should just be able to repair the unit if you have the will-to-do.  The smell more than likely is coming from a possible mildew growth inside the machine.  Sometimes you can remove the inner basket and clean the inner and outer baskets.  If you can find the leak (which on older models shouldn't be to hard to do), you should be able to correct pretty easy.  Be sure to check hose coming off water mixing valve and the smaller tube for the water level switch (will run off of outer basket up to console).  Be sure that hose doesnt come off because washer will keep on filling (and it will to).  If you get leak stopped, try getting some strong bleach, and washing a "no-load" a couple of times at high level in hot water.  This may get rid of the problem.   Jim

Large leak during wash cycle---Maytag - model LAT9520AAE top load washer


hey guys i guess this is not a uncommon problem. I have a commercial washer about 4 years old that get moderate service at a rental of mine and it is leaking from the tub as well. I hope to fix the problem because the new machines are very expensive.
