My wash machine is acting like the load is out of balance, when the drum spins it always spins to the one side of the washer, it will even do it when their is no load in it, all the springs are attached and the machine is level

if you just bought it it probably is the shiping pin. it is a large boldt in the back of the front load machines, smaller pin in the side or rear on toploaders. it keeps the drum from spinning in transit. people forget to pull them all the time. especially if you installed it yourself. If that isnt the problem, try leveling it. Newer machines spin much faster than older ones and one tiny bit off level will make it rattle and shake.
The liquid is a saline solution which is hermetically sealed in the front balance ring on the spinner. It is there to reduce vibration and acts like a gyroscope when the spinner revolves. Good sound to hear when you spin the basket. The smell can be gotten rid of by using a washing machine cleaner like tide.
A few possibilities here.
Make sure the washer is level, both back to front, and side to side.
Do not over load, and make sure that there is more than 1 article in it, otherwise you will get an out of balance load.
Make sure the water is drainlng away properly.
Check the drum for excess movement, this would indicate a broken spring or worn drum bearings or worn or broken drum shaft.
Check the concrete wieghts at the top and bottom are not loose or broken.
Check the suspensions for excessive wear.
Hope this helps
Typically when the drum spins and walks the washer, it is a loading issue. As the clothes spin, they collect on 1 side, due to cintrifical force acting upon an uneven load. THis is especially prevalent in loads that are: 1. small, 2. contain lots of towels and 3. anything else that really holds water and is very heavy when wet (like comfortors, pillows)
These will very quickly throw the load off-balance.
When it happens, pull out some of the itmes, and re-load the laundry more evenly around the drum. Be sure to circle the post with towels and sheets, etc.
If you continue to run the machine off-balance for an extended time, the bearings and seals will wear quickly. Unfortunately, you will only know this when the washer begins to leak out under the machine onto the floor.
Hopefully this will fix-ya....if not let me know please!
