Hello. Go ahead and put clothes into the machine. It will not self balance when empty but once clothes are added and you start it up it will self balance. IF you do these things and the machine is still out of balance you will have to check the 4 suspension rods on the outer tub to make sure that one of them is not out of place or broken. You may choose to call a repair man at this point. J.

Washer clothes


Your load is out of balance.
If you have a heavy item, spread it around the tub to balance the load.
It is normal for the tub to shake during the spin cycle. The washer has a safety feature, if it is too badly out of balance it will shut itself down and sound an alarm.

Drum is loose during Spin and Rinse cycle and banging against side of washer


If it is under warranty, call Whirlpool at 1-866-698-2538. If it is out of warranty, try running the washer with no clothes in it in spin cycle. If it runs fine empty, it may be that when you had clothes in it they were not balanced evenly in the tub. If it runs off balance when empty, then a spring may have broken or come off. Contact an appliance repairman.

Tub is off balance


The tub is out of balance. When it starts hitting the sides, stop the washer and move your clothes around inside the tub to balance the tub. Now start it to spin again. This should stop the tub from hitting the sides.

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.

Washer makes noise during spin cycle, sounds like tub is off balance whether clothes are in tub or it is empty.


It could be that your drive coupling is getting ready to puke. Mine did. I also had a part fail and drop between the washer tub and the housing that surrounds it- Made a hell of a noise when the washer was spinning. I fabricated a new part/assembly to fix it. All mass-manufactured products have the same flaws. Cause they are all the same! I own a Kenmore Elite- if you don't, this may not apply to your problem.
