    My machine goes out of balance while in the spin cycle regardless of the load. Are there stabilizers I need to replace? I would like to find a diagram of my machine.

Is there a video showing how to balance front load washer or simple instructions on how to balance the tumbler as it is hammering during spin cycle

Thank you for your inquiry, Jay Kraemer!

From the information you have provided you would like a video on how to balance your Frigidaire frontload washer. I was unable to find any information on balancing your washer from your manufacturer. This could mean that it is not a simple DIY job. You may be able to perform a generic search online for any information except I would recommend having a professional technician out to accurately balance your washer. This will help to avoid any future issues. -Matt

How to balance

By "balance", do you mean balance the load or balance the washer to keep it from wobbling on an unlevel floor?
You can adjust the front feet of the washer to "level" it with the floor.
Sorry I didn't quite understand your meaning. Hope you can use this info.

Why do i have a red blinking light on my motor when its in off position

Probably washer is smart enough to detect the out of balance.
Try to distribute the clothes in a balanced maner as soon as you detect it is out of balance.

Out of balance switch will not stop washer when load becomes out of balance.

Your switch is bad. You don't necessarily need the switch. Snip the wires off either side of the switch and fuse them together with a wire connector.

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.

Spinning is out of balance even when there are no clothes in the washer

Most has a balance ring built onto to the tub, make sure thr balance ring is not damaged, It is normal for the tub to shake in the spin cycle with nothing in washer

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load

The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it
