Possible bad bearing for the drum front or maybe a drive belt with a missing segment that thumps with every revolution. You will need to open the top to inspect--either screws in the back edge of the top or insert a thin putty knife into the front corners to release a spring catch on each side. Hope this helps!

Why won't my washer spin?


Sounds to me like your washer tub had a very unbalanced load in it (heavy blankets, jeans, or pillows, all piled to one side instead of evenly distributed around the inside of the tub), and it threw it off balance. When it began to wobble and knock, it may have broken the mechanics underneath the tub which make it spin. The only way to properly diagnose it is if you remove the outer casing of the washing machine and look beneath the tub for broken/out of place items.

My frididaire front load washer is making a loud knocking sound as it goes through the cycle. Also the metal "basket" in which the clothing is places seems to be "off its track" and loose. i can move it...


It sounds like the shocks for the drum are broken. The shocks absorb the wobbling of the drum due to unbalanced loads, etc. Remove the lower front panel (with machine unplugged) and look towards the back on each side and see if you see broken or hanging shocks. The panel has 2 screws I think and should come right off.
Also, if you can open the door and lifting up on the drum inside the machine and moving it around and hear a clunking sound, the drum bearings may be bad. Give that a try and see what you find.

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!

WF218ANB noise like a bag of rocks being shaken.


This is a direct result of Samsung's Vibration Reduction Technology(VRT). There is a hoop at the front and the back of the drum holding 18 ball berrings in each hoop (36 in total). These balls use centrifugal force and automatically move to the opposite side of where the load is unbalanced and balances it out. It is only in the washing machines, not dryers.

What causes unbalanced signal: on my gas dryer machine the unbalanced signal comes on even when there is no load in the machine.


try leveling the machine. Usually the front "feet" turn, allowing them to be moved up and down. If you have an actual level, this could help.

Washer moves during the spin cycle


Due to strong vibration during spinning definitely the machine will stop. All you have to do is to check your load if equally distributed from the tub. To eliminate the vibration and the movement of your washer you need to align the four legs of your washer using level tools. Just put the level on the top of the four sides (front side, left side, right side and backside) then make necessary adjustment if needed on the 4 leg of the washer. Also check the water level of the balancer and the mounting position from the top of the tub.

Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator


I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off


GOOD LUCK!

Spin Shake ...


yes the water is supposed to be there, thats called the balance ring, some machine use cement others water. you say the washer is unbalanced even when empty, is there an indicator or is the machine itself physically off balance. if there is an indicator the off balance swich might have gone bad or you might need to adjust the leveling legs.
