The problem is the glides that your tub is sitting on. Get these replaced and your good.

You have a Clutch malfunction common problem with the FAV6800A and FAV9800A TL's. Owners very seldom report all the conditions of wild tub swings. You are on the ball with info feedback.

Whirlpool washing machine, top load


hi without further investigation its a bit hit or miss , does the whole tub tilt or is it just the inner drum ?
if its just the inner drum then it sounds like the bearings are on there way out
if its the whole tub then it could be one of the springs that it hangs from or the shock absorber underneath that may have come adrift
hope this helps

Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Loading Washer VERY NOISY during spin cycle


remove the top access panel 3 screws in top rear.
now look around and push on the drum from top
it has suspension shocks and springs like your car they should resist any movements.
look/wiggle the concrete balance blocks , no cracks or loose.
inside the tub are the arm solid /not loose.
run it with the top open what do you see/hear and where
look under the rubber flap in front did anything get under the tub

Drain/Spin won't work unless lid is lifted up


Curdy, it almost sounds like your lid switch is loose or fractured and the lid actuator is not making the switch. Check this out first and post back...Catriver.
