Have a GE WSXH208HWW Spacesaver, Washing Basket is wobbling. What is the problem and can I fix it myself?


2 possible problems. On the outside of the tub front and on the top back are cement counter weights that are bolted to the tub. If they are coming loose, they would cause the tub to go off balance and wobble. If just the stainless inner tub is the one that wobbles, that suggests a bad rear drum bearing. The counter weight problem easy to fix once you get the top and back off and just need re-tightened. The back drum bearing is something even trained techs want to avoid. It requires removing the complete tub/drum assembly from the washer----then splitting the outer tub in half to replace the inner drum and bearing assembly. Cost for parts will be excessive and not worth the repair.

Please help me find what's causing my GE top load washer to sound like a freight train in spin cycle??


First, a huge thanks for including a video of your problem. I wish all answer seekers would do the same. It helps greatly.

The video helps greatly, but is missing many important parts/areas to help fully diagnose. One thing that I noticed, tho it was a "split second" shot, was the wobble in the agitator, which seemed to wobble/vibrate in greater magnitude than the tub. The agitator should sit firmly on the shaft, and not wobble so much. (if a 2 piece agitator, the smaller finned top section is normal to wobble a little bit more tho).

The roaring noise indicates another problem, most likely a worn tub bearing. I'll include a link to a YouTube video that shows replacement of a tub bearing. Also make sure the 4 short upper rubber "shock-dampening straps" (tubular in shape) are not overstretched or broken from age/use. If so, they need replacement.

The general movement of the tub and motor assembly in your video is within the realm of "normal". But is perhaps on the upper limit of normal movement.

Washer tub wobbles, washer is level, on spin cycle the tub wobbles so bad it sounds like the tub is hitting the washer.


Sounds like a drum bearing problem , unless you are an engineer , suggest call service agent for estimate.

After replacing the motor coupling my machine wobbles like crazy


There is a skid plate between the basket support and the A frame. If that is not positioned correctly it will shake. Also make sure the machine has leveled out by tipping forward and allowing the self leveling legs to operate(making sure they move freely)

Spin


Does this happen with every load? I've had this happen occasionally but it was caused by one or two heavier when wet pieces of clothing that caused the tub to get off center and it would wobble out of control. By just rearranging the wet clothes to balance the tub it stopped wobbling. But only after making sure that the heaviest objects were on opposite sides if the tub.
