I am having the exact same problem. I think one of the springs it hangs from is either disconnected or some how out of place. Hopefully I will be taking mine apart this Sunday. If I figure it out I will share.

Perhaps the washer isn't sitting level? Use a carpenter's level on the top surface and make sure the machine is sitting level. Next screw down the feet as necessary to maintain a level washer. In some cases, the "solenoid" is out which is servicable by a repairman. Not an expensive fix by the way, but not easy for the uninitiated among us.

Why does it always become unbalanced in spin cycle?


how confident are you to get inside it? Check the balance springs and shock absorbers.

Normally it is two simple things.

First the machine must be level front to back and left to right. Also all 4 feet must be in equal contact with the floor.

Make sure you load the washer evenly with clothes. Mix large and small items so when the spin starts the clothes even out. Never wash just one large item that is very absorbent, like one bathrobe or one blanket..

I have a Maytag clothes washer that is about 11 years old. It is constantly unbalanced. It is sitting level. It doesn't even matter the size of the load. I don't have a clue what could be the problem. Any...


it could be that soap has gotten to the stabilizer 'bumpers' that ride on top of the drum and allow them to slide instead of controlling the agitation or they may be missing. get the top off and clean the area that they ride on they may also need replacement- cheap fix

Kenmore elite 110.2706 unbalanced load problems


I have the same problem with my washer though it is a Maytag. the part that grips the drum to spin it is stripping, (and not properly grabbing). Repair man said to just get a new but I'm sure if you find a dedicated enough repairman he may be able to replace that part. The repairman said to replace mine because it was over 8 years old.

Is it always loud or just when it is a full load. If the load is unbalanced it will be loud. Most F/L washers today have some kind of unbalanced load detection, but they are not all that great. If it spins quietly when empty it is just an unbalanced load. Don't over load and don't mix rugs with clothes, pillows, etc...

When washing comforter the ul keeps coming no matter what is dine to level the load?


UL = Unbalanced LoadUL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load.
Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load.
If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Washer has worked great for almost a year but now all the loads seem to be unbalanced. It doesn't matter if they are large, small or on any particular cycle, they all sound unbalanced and shake my house...


The motion dampers that control the outer tub's movement within the cabinet may be loose or damaged. Lift up on the inner drum when the machine is off to see if the drum moves with a 'clunking' sound which would indicate a bad drum shaft bearing (not a cheap fix). If it seems ok, remove the top and back panels to check the action of the dampers when the outer drum is shaken. Hope this helps!
